BREAKING: Jared Sullinger's foot has healed and is available tonight
The Celtics have announced that forward Jared Sullinger's metatarsal stress fracture has healed completely and that he will be available for this evening’s game at TD Garden against the Milwaukee Bucks.
In the press release, Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge said,
“We are excited that Jared’s recovery progressed quicker than initially expected,”
Sullinger was projected to be out for the rest of the regular season with the foot injury, but has apparently made the strides in his rehab to be in uniform for the rest of the regular season and potentially into the postseason.
Ainge said Sullinger, who is averaging 14.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season, will be eased back into the rotation until he is completely heathy.
The Celtics went 14-10 in Sulliger's 24 game absence.
Boston is currently tied with Miami for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference.
