Description: Boston G/F Gerald Wallace had successful knee and ankle surgery on Tuesday. SOURCE: Celtics on Twitter
Insight: Obviously, he's lost for the season. Wallace (5.1 ppg, 3.7 rpg) gave the Celtics very little in his 58 games this season and is unlikely to be re-signed. His days of being a helpful fantasy contributor are over.

Description: Celtics coach Brad Stevens indicated that he will use the Jeff Green-Gerald Wallace combo on the wings early in the season, according to Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston.com.
Insight: Stevens started Avery Bradley, Green, Wallace, Kelly Olynyk and Vitor Faverani Wednesday in the team's final preseason game. "It gives us a chance to be a little unique," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "And, at the same time, it doesn’t forfeit the ability to move and defend multiple positions. We’re going to continue to play around with that, and I think (the Green/Wallace combo is) something that you very well could see early on in the regular season." If Green starts at the two and Wallace at the three, it would push Jordan Crawford to the bench. Wallace had a miserable and injury-plagued season with the Nets in 2012-13 and averaged 30 minutes, 7.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks.
