MANCHESTER, N.H. – Celtics shooting guard Keith Bogans is out indefinitely with a sprained right thumb, coach Brad Stevens announced Saturday before the Celtics played the New York Knicks in a preseason game at the Verizon Wireless Arena here.
An MRI confirmed Bogans's sprain, which he suffered in the Celtics' 97-85 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in a preseason game Friday in Newark, Del. Bogans is scheduled to be re-evaluated Monday at New England Baptist Hospital, so a timeline for return is unclear.
Aside from Bogans, Stevens said that veteran swingman Gerald Wallace will also not play against the Knicks, though Wallace is sitting more just to rest.
The Knicks beat the Celtics, 103-102 in a preseason game earlier this week in Providence.
