The Boston Celtics will be without Chris Wilcox for three-to-four weeks after he suffered a thumb and wrist injury. The injury came last Tuesday against the Chicago Bulls and is diagnosed as a sprained ulnar collateral ligament.
According to ESPN's Chris Forsberg, the Celtics are expected sit Wilcox for about a month due to the injury.
Doc Rivers said team will announce soon that Chris Wilcox is out at least 3-4 weeks with thumb/wrist injury.

Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe says the team will look for options to fill the void left behind by Wilcox's injury, but for now the team will just have to focus on playing without him.
Wilcox is more of a role player than anything, but his presence will still be missed. He is averaging 13.3 minutes per game. In that time, Wilcox averages 4.7 points per game and 2.3 rebounds per game. He is an 11-year veteran of the NBA. The Celtics are his sixth team.
