Daniel Theis has had a fantastic rookie season in the NBA so far. But now the Boston Celtics’ darling of the public is facing the bitter end of the season.
For Daniel Theis, the big dream of the first playoffs in the NBA threatens to burst. As his club on Twitter announced, the Boston Celtics’ Power Forward suffered a meniscus tear in the left knee.
According to Celtics, Theis is in danger of going missing for the rest of the season, and Boston’s darling of the crowd may also have to undergo knee surgery.

The international player, who left Bamberg last summer as a rookie in the world’s best league, was injured in a collision with Victor Oladipo in the game against the Indiana Pacers.
“It’s such a pity. he’s had an incredible rookie year,”said Boston Coach at a press conference.”He’s visibly depressed.”
According to the coach, the gap that Theis leaves on the field should fill the young players. Especially the rookies Semi Ojeleye and Guerschon Yabusele are likely to lose much more time due to the bad luck of the Germans.
