Jason Terry has his Knee Scoped

Jason Terry had his knee scoped earlier this week on Tuesday. Terry had a procedure to remove the plica in his left knee according to the  Boston Herald. 

The Boston Herald described the plica in their report:

The plica is described as an extension of the protective synovial capsule of the knee, and can become irritated, enlarged, or inflamed if caught between the patella and the femur.

It turns out that Jason Terry didn’t finish the season healthy at all. Maybe this is the reason why he didn’t finish the Knicks series strong in any sense of the word. We will never know the truth, but its very interesting that he got this procedure.

The Celtics battled health issues all season long and they still continue to do so. So far, Terrence Williams and Jason Terry have had procedures this offseason. Hopefully the Celtics can keep the injuries to a minimum.
