Orlando's Mo Harkless slammed hard into Sullinger's right knee, forcing Boston's second-year forward to crash backwards late in the first half on Boston's 120-105 triumph. Sullinger did play 14 minutes, 33 seconds in the second half of that game. He sat out practice Tuesday and departed with trainer Ed Lacerte near the end of the session.

"He’s got a sore knee and they are doing an MRI just to check out and see what’s wrong," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "Nothing conclusive, and certainly day-to-day it sounds like they are looking at, but we just don’t know yet, so we want to make sure."

Here's an image of the collision Forsberg mentions above -

Hopefully it's nothing, but obviously coming off an injury this could be a real concern. Particularly an impact to the knee when he's carrying a little extra weight

We'll keep you updated as more info comes.


Rejoice! He's fine!
