A second key Celtic bench player may be lost for the season due to a heart condition.

Chris Wilcox, maybe the Celtics best big man off the bench this season, did not travel with the team to Los Angeles (a close loss to the Lakers on Sunday vs. game against the Clippers on Monday) due to test that showed he needed more tests for a heart condition, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSSNNE.com. Blakely added this on twitter.

Doc Rivers says there is a possibility that Chris Wilcox may have a Jeff Green-like end to his season

The Celtics had been aware Wilcox had a potential heart situation and had been testing him monthly. Right now he is out indefinitely.

The Celtics lost Jeff Green for the season due to a heart condition before the first game. It was a huge setback for a team that needed him for depth. The potential loss of Wilcox just adds to that situation.

    Guys connected to Maryland with the Celtics… Makes me think about what could have been with Lenny Bias, he was so talented and Reggie Lewis( dunbar in baltimore). And Wilcox was such a huge piece to the Terps national title.

      Best wishes to Chris Wilcox for receiving the best medical reports possible and for a speedy return to basketball.
