BOSTON (AP) — Celtics rookie Daniel Theis is likely out for the rest of the season with a torn meniscus in his left knee.

Theis got hurt during the final minute of Boston’s 99-97 loss to the Pacers on Sunday (Monday, PHL time).

Coach Brad Stevens told reporters Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) that the center is weighing his surgical options.

Stevens says the team will need to adjust with Theis out. It recalled rookie Guerschon Yabusele from the G-League on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time).

Theis is averaging 5.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game this season.
