Kendrick Perkins Injuries Knee, Could Miss Next 3 Games

CSNNE.com is reporting that starting Celtic center Kendrick Perkins could be sidelined for at least the next three games with a strained MCL in his right knee. Perkins, who missed 43 games this season after injuring his left knee last season, was making a nice contribution to the club averaging 7.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game whilst providing the C’s with the legitimate inside presenace they desperately needed.

With the injury to Perkins, Semih Erden remains the only healthy true center on the roster and will have to hold his own until Perk is able to return sometime next week.

The Celtics continue their annual “Disney on Ice” February road trip with stops in Denver tonight, LA (Clippers) on Saturday and finish up against the Deron Williamsless Utah Jazz on Monday.
