Gerald Wallace  is officially out for the remainder of the season, the Celtics  announced on Tuesday. He underwent separate arthroscopic surgeries to repair a torn meniscus on his left knee and bone spurs in his left ankle.
Thus ends the first season of the cumbersome three years and $30.3 million remaining on his contract when Boston acquired him in the trade that sent Paul Pierce  and Kevin Garnett  to the Nets  this past summer.
After failing to show up for his introductory press conference, he professed his love  for David Ortiz  and Tom Brady  at Media Day. That’s where the highlights of his first Celtics  season begin and end. The former NBA All-Star averaged 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 24.4 minutes over 58 games — all while regularly calling out his teammates  over a lack of effort.
Meanwhile, Kelly Olynyk (toe) has shed his walking boot and could return from his two-game absence for Wednesday’s home tilt agains the Warriors. Likewise, Avery Bradley  (ankle) will undergo an MRI to determine his status, according to reports out of Celtics  practice.
