Per the Globe:
Celtics forward Leon Powe suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee Monday night and will miss the remainder of the playoffs.
Powe had an MRI after injuring the knee in the second quarter of the Celtics’ 118-115 victory over the Bulls in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. The injury was originally diagnosed as a sprain, but the Celtics apparently received worse news today. Powe is expected to have surgery soon.
“Leon has an ACL tear and meniscus,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. “He’ obviously out for the playoffs, Surgery will be determined when it’s determined. So obviously a tough break.”
