The Celtics received a bit of good news on the injury front when the MRI on Kris Humphries' right knee showed no structural damage.

A league source tells that there was some bruising and tendonitis, but his meniscus was in good shape.

Still, that doesn't necessarily mean Humphries will be in the Celtics lineup when the team returns home to play Charlotte on Friday.

That determination won't be made until Humphries has a chance to consult with the team doctors to see what's the best course of action going forward in handling his injury.

In a season that has been full of disappointment for the Celtics, Humphries has been one of the more pleasant surprises.

After spending the early portion of the season buried on Boston's bench, he gradually worked his way into meaningful minutes that ultimately led to him being a starter.

He has appeared in 68 games this season, with 30 starts.

As a starter, Humphries has averaged 10.4 points and 7.3 rebounds per game this season.
