Brandon Bass

Forward Brandon Bass, the Boston Celtics’ top reserve, will miss 10 to 14 days with inflammation in his right knee, coach Doc Rivers said before Sunday’s 95-91 win against the Chicago Bulls.

Bass felt some discomfort in the knee during a win over the New York Knicks on Feb. 3. He sat out the following game against the Memphis Grizzlies, but played in three games last week. Rivers said the news came as a bit of a surprise to him, as he was informed by team trainer Eddie Lacerte on Sunday morning that Bass almost certainly will be out through the All-Star break, which begins Feb. 23.
