BOSTON (AP) _ Reggie Hanson, who played for Boston coach Rick Pitino at Kentucky, signed a 10-day contract Wednesday with the Celtics, who put Bruce Bowen on the injured list.

The 6-foot-8 Hanson, 29, was in his fifth season in the Japanese Basketball League. He played the last two of his four college seasons under Pitino and left Kentucky after the 1991 season.

Bowen, averaging 5.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 61 games as a rookie, has a stress reaction in a bone in his left foot, the Celtics said.
