Boston Celtics forward-center Chris Wilcox will miss a month because of an ulnar collateral ligament sprain in his right thumb, coach Doc Rivers said, according to ESPN.com.
Wilcox, 30, who played on Maryland's 2001-02 national championship team, injured his thumb Tuesday against the Bulls and had sat out the past two games.
"Chris is out; he's out for a while," Rivers said Sunday. "I don't know how long, but the first report I got was three to four weeks."
Wilcox is averaging 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.3¿minutes per game.
