Szczerbiak shut down

The Boston Celtics announced that forward Wally Szczerbiak will undergo season ending surgery on his left ankle on Thursday.

The Celtics came to this decision after Szczerbiak consulted with team physican Dr. Brian McKeon and other doctors.

McKeon will perform the operation at New England Baptist Hospital.

Szczerbiak sprained his left ankle for third time this season on Tuesday, Feb. 20 late in the first quarter against the Sacramento Kings.

It is the second surgery Szczerbiak has undergone in less than two seasons with the team.

In 32 games this season, Szczerbiak is averaging 15.0 points and 3.1 rebounds in 28.1 minutes per game.
