Sullinger may see discipline from Celtics after his charges were dropped

Brad Stevens plans to sit down with Danny Ainge to decide on what, if any, punishment will be handed out to Sullinger. Jared Sullinger's domestic violence court case has been dismissed, that doesn't mean he'll be dismissed by the Celtics just yet.

Charges against Sullinger, all stemming from an alleged domestic incident with his girlfriend Deann Smith on Aug. 31, were dismissed Monday morning in Waltham District Court. The timing allowed the 21-year old to participate in a practice which began at 1 p.m., but did not afford the Celtics brass any chance to discuss the aftermath.

“We haven’t had a chance to all sit down,” Stevens said after Monday’s practice when pressed on a potential punishment. “We’ll probably have a little bit more information for you (Tuesday).”

“I haven’t had a time to think about it from the process standpoint,” the coach added. “I made my thoughts known on it early. Obviously it’s a really tough situation, and it’s one in which we were all really disappointed when we heard of those allegations against him. We’ll move forward appropriately, but he was here and he did practice today.”

It's hard to say if he'll miss some time for his legal issues. I think the Celtics may suspend him for 3-5 games max, if anything at all.
