Russell, who has led the Cel- tics to 10 titles with brilliant de- fensive play in his dozen years as a pro, suffered severely strained ligaments in his right knee in a 95-94 loss to the New York Knicks Sunday at Boston Garden. With New York in front 95-92, the 6-foot-9 Russell took a pass and scored a layup. He fell hard to the floor and writhed in pain as the Knicks ran, out the final 12 seconds. X-Rays Negative Russell, 35, finally was car- ried oh a stretcher to the dress- ing room and transferred 30 minutes later to University Hos- pital, where Xrays were nega- tive. Dr. Thomas Silva, the team physician, said a bone special; ists would examine the injury in 24 hours. Barring unforeseen swelling he was "very optimis- tic that Russell would be able to return to the Celtics in a week or 10 days." General Manager Red Auer- back, who turned over the coaching reins to Russell after the 1865-66 season, announced he would return to the bench on a temporary basis.
