Celtics center Aron Baynes suffers a broken hand-Dr. Patel

Published

Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes fractured the fourth metacarpal in his left hand on Wednesday night’s game against the Phoenix suns. He reportedly will undergo surgery.

The metacarpal bones are the largest bone in the hand just past the wrist. These are commonly injured given how much space they take up in the hand. Fractures can be treated with a cast or surgery. Aron Baynes will likely have his fixed with plates/ screws or wires. He will need 4 weeks with a protective brace before he can return to activity and a few more weeks to return to full play.

Until Al Horford and Aron Baynes return, Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will see increased minutes.
