Turns out Terry was not healthy during the C's playoff run, and recently underwent surgery on his knee. From the Herald's Mark Murphy.
Jason Terry, as it turns out, was not running on two healthy legs by the end of the season.
The Celtics guard, who tweeted a picture of himself running on a treadmill in the Celtics' Waltham practice facility today, had an arthoscopic procedure to remove the plica from his left knee. 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.
"I saw him today, and he looked great," said Celtics president Danny Ainge. "He's doing really well."
Asked if the condition might have contributed to Terry's late-season performance, Ainge said, "I'm sure it was bothering him."
Here is the aforementioned picture Terry posted to twitter with the caption "Road to recovery #rehab".
Of course it's never good when a soon to be 36 year old undergoes surgery, but considering the procedure is considered minor, it's possible Terry could return to something closer to the Dallas JET we all hoped the Celtics were getting once healthy.
Terry isn't the only Celtic getting his knee worked on, Terrence Williams recently received an injection one of his knees as well. From Murphy.
In addition, Celtics guard Terrence Williams recently had an injection to relieve a painful case of tendinitis in one of his knees.
Considering his off the court issues, Williams knee tendonitis appears to be the least of his worries.
With nearly five months until opening night, both Terry and Williams have plenty of time to recover.
