Jason Terry had a rough season in Boston. He never really found a comfort zone in the offense, so he shot a lot less than previous years. He went cold at the end of the season. He went from a key part of a title team in Dallas to a below averaged guard off the bench (a PER of 12.8) in Boston.

He wants to change that around next season, and that starts with getting healthy.

That started with arthroscopic knee surgery this week, reports the Boston Herald (via

The Celtics guard, who tweeted a picture of himself running on a treadmill in the Celtics’ Waltham practice facility today, had an arthroscopic procedure to remove the plica from his left knee. The plica is described as an extension of the protective synovial capsule of the knee, and can become irritated, enlarged, or inflamed if caught between the patella and the femur.

That certainly didn’t help his cause at the end of last season.

He should be healthy and fully ready to go by training camp.

    With Rondo getting hurt, it affected his play, he was called on to do things he wouldn’t be doing if Rondo was healthy.

    2 of the biggest turd heat fans, commenting on a team that is no loner playing, that “wasn’t a threat” anyway….

    Obsessed much?

    You should be worrying about getting beat by the Spurs, not a team that got beat in the 1st round because their best player was hurt.
