He had an MRI on his left knee Thursday at a hospital, team spokesman Jeff Twiss said. After consulting with the team physician and Celtics officials, Szczerbiak will have arthroscopic surgery early next week.
Analysis: The Celtics expect him to return next season. He averaged 17.5 points in 32 games with the Celtics after being acquired from Minnesota on Jan. 26. Expect rookie Orien Greene to see a boost in playing time. He's worth adding in larger leagues if you need a replacement for Wally, but don't expect regular production from the young guard. Tony Allen has scored in double-figures in four straight games and he should see a boost.

He just does a lot of little things that I like."
Analysis: Greene could develop some Fantasy value at some point this year, but he still does not log enough minutes to merit picking up. Keep an eye on him and he's worth owning in very deep keeper leagues.
News: Orien Greene scored four points in 11 minutes on Monday night at Detroit. He is averaging 11 minutes per contest this season and he's only averaging 2 points per game.
