Atlantic Notes: Celtics, Wilcox, Raptors, Bynum

December 23 2012 at 1:55pm CST By Zach Links

Here's a look at today's news out of the Atlantic..

  • Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced that Chris Wilcox will be sidelined for three-to-four weeks with his thumb/wrist injury, according to Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com (on Twitter).  The C's might be forced to find a big man, but it might not happen during their current road trip.
  • Rivers more or less shot down the idea of calling up Fab Melo from the D-League, Forsberg tweets.  “I haven’t talked to anyone that thinks he’s ready to come up yet," said the coach.
  • The Raptors are expected to be one of the most active teams between now and the deadline, and they'll try to trade Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon as a package. Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld writes that they're targeting a marquee small forward, just as they did over the summer. 
  • Tom Moore of PhillyBurbs.com argues the Sixers made the right call in trading for Andrew Bynum, even if Bynum never plays for the team, since last year's squad had reached its ceiling.
