Dec. 19, 2005

BOSTON (AP) - Celtics guard Dan Dickau is scheduled for surgery Tuesday for a ruptured Achilles' tendon and might miss the rest of the season.

Dickau, a third-string point guard, injured his right leg early in the fourth quarter Saturday against Chicago and was carried off the court. He had an MRI exam Sunday, and team physician Brian McKeon is operate at New England Baptist Hospital.

"Dan had accepted his role with the team," Celtics basketball chief Danny Ainge. "He is a true professional and a good teammate."

Dickau was averaging 3.3 points and 2.1 assists in 12 minutes. He was selected by Sacramento as the 28th pick in the 2002 draft.

Starting point guard Delonte West sustained a mild concussion in the second quarter Saturday night and was questionable for Monday's home game against Golden State.
