Celtics reserve guard Keyon Dooling, back in the lineup after missing the past seven games due to a right knee injury, left Thursday's game with a right hip-pointer and will not return, according to the team.

Dooling injured the hip in the second quarter and soon departed for the locker room. He came onto the court after halftime, but was soon declared out for the remainder of the game.

Dooling scored three points over eight minutes in Thursday's tilt. He was averaging 7 points, 1.3 assists, and 0.9 rebounds over 18.4 minutes per game in nine appearances.

The Celtics were playing without three starters Thursday against the Magic in guards Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen and center Jermaine O'Neal. Boston, who played without five bodies in Monday's home win over Orlando, did get three players back in Dooling, Chris Wilcox and Mickael Pietrus.
