Ainge: Daniels May Have Season-Ending Surgery

A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com has Danny Ainge speaking on the record about Marquis Daniels’ situation going forward, confirming what we have all speculated recently.

“There is a chance that he will miss the season and may need surgery to resume his playing career,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com Wednesday night. “We’re still gathering information, but that’s where we’re at.”

With just hours remaining before the trade deadline hits, making that kind of statement shows you that Ainge knows every team out there pretty much knows that Daniels is understandably done for the year. Coming back prior to getting much needed surgery is a very risky career move, and seeing Quisy’s just on a one year deal, so a premature return in his condition could conceivably cost him his career if something were to go wrong.

Thus the C’s are down to filling the gap. The tough part about Daniels’ condition is that they will likely need his roster spot, given they have 15 guys and a mob of other injuries. It would be nice if Ainge could include Daniels in a trade (along with his 2.3 million salary for matching purposes) but Daniels has the right to veto any deal since he’s on a one year deal with early bird rights.

It’s the same situation that Devean George was in three years ago with the Mavericks that caused him to hold up the Jason Kidd to Dallas deal intitally. And as WEEI’s Paul Flannery pointed out to me, Daniels has the same agent as George did (Mark Bartelstein) so we can safely assume he’ll be on top of looking out for his player here. If the C’s are going to waive him anyway, maybe they can somehow convince Daniels to waive his bird rights, but there’s really no incentive for him to do so.

A few other items to note from Ainge, including positive talk regarding Perk’s injury and how it affects the team’s trade talks.

“Perk should be good to go right after the team gets back,” Ainge said.

Perkins’ injury, Ainge said, has no impact on how he and the C’s will proceed with trade talks.

“No, Perk’s going to be fine,” Ainge said. “He’s only going to be out for like a week, so it’s not like we have to do anything drastic. We just have to find a way to get through the two or three games, that’s all. At some point, we’re going to get most or all of our bigs healthy.”

We can only hope Danny. For now though, I’d say the odds are about 80/20 the team goes the buyout route as opposed to a trade. They are still trying to find a taker out there for Nate Robinson obviously, but unfortunately for us, there’s game film out there of this guy and his lackluster shooting for nearly the past two months.

    Best wishes for Marquis if he does have surgery. Hope he regains his health, whether he comes back to play or not.

    This is tough for Marquis. He had been playing very well this year and the team really needed his contribution for a lot of wins.

    I feel so bad for this guy. I sincerely hope we figure a way to keep him, and win a championship. I'd love to see him get a ring, even in a suit. He's been so unlucky through his career, and has come back strong every time, it's just unfair. How many times can a guy go down and get up again…
