The injury-riddled Boston Celtics were dealt another tough blow Monday, learning that reserve big man Daniel Theis has a torn meniscus that will require season-ending surgery, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Theis got hurt during the final minute of Boston's 99-97 loss to the Pacers on Sunday (Monday, Manila time).

Stevens says the team will need to adjust with Theis out.

Coach Brad Stevens told reporters Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) that the center is weighing his surgical options.

The bulk of minutes that Theis spent against bigger, plodding opponents will presumably be allotted to Greg Monroe, but the Celtics have also recalled Guerschon Yabusele from the G-League to provide additional frontcourt depth. The 6-foot-9 backup center had played with above-average efficiency in his first National Basketball Association season, playing 15 minutes a game and averaging 2.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 54-percent shooting. Kyrie Irving (knee), Jaylen Brown (concussion), Marcus Smart (thumb), Shane Larkin (knee) and Al Horford (illness) are all dealing with their own issues.
