Gerald Wallace [1] is officially out for the remainder of the season, the Celtics [2] 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 [3] and Kevin Garnett [4] to the Nets [5] this past summer.

After failing to show up for his introductory press conference, he professed his love [6] for David Ortiz [7] and Tom Brady [8] at Media Day. That’s where the highlights of his first Celtics [2] 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 [9] 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 [10] (ankle) will undergo an MRI to determine his status, according to reports out of Celtics [11] practice.
