BOSTON — Marquis Daniels has not been told a definitive date, but he hopes to return to action prior to the All-Star Break.

Daniels has been sidelined since undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb in December. He had the hard cast removed on Thursday and will wear a soft cast while he continues his rehab.

His return depends on when he can regain a full range of motion in his thumb.

“Right now it’s not really painful, it’s just stiff,” he said before the Celtics – Trail Blazers game, adding, “[My return] could be earlier. It just depends on how my body reacts to it.”

Daniels expects to practice in a week or so. In the meantime, he is just happy to see the hard cast gone.

“It’s very relieving,” he said. “No more tying my hand up to take a shower, tying my shoe, all the small things. “
