Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes is expected to miss four-to-six weeks after undergoing surgery on a broken left finger Thursday, the team announced in a news release.
Baynes suffered the injury early in Wednesday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns after deflecting a pass.
Celtics president/general manager Danny Ainge said during a Boston radio appearance that he does not envision the team signing anyone to help replace the loss of Baynes.
Big man Al Horford has also been ruled out for Friday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Guerschon Yabusele, Daniel Theis and rookie Robert Williams are expected to have increased responsibilities at center.
Baynes, 32, is averaging 5.5 points and 4.2 rebounds on the season.
