It looks like Celtics rookie Guerschon Yabusele will finally get some more playing time, but it will be with the G-League Maine Red Claws as they take on the Westchester Knicks today at 11:00 A.M. Yabu has seen little action with the Celtics, averaging 4.6 MPG, 2.0 PPG and 1.6 RPG.
Yabu has only played 32 total minutes in seven appearances this season.
Yabusele is only 21 years old and will turn 22 next month. Danny Ainge saw promise in this young Frenchman and took him 16th overall in the first round of the 2016 NBA draft. Yabu is 6'8" with a 7' wingspan and a powerful NBA physique. He has plenty of time to improve as he adapts to the American style of professional basketball.
This seems to be just what Guerschon needs right now. To see significant minutes in a game where he can gain confidence and not be overshadowed. Coach Brad Stevens always seems to make the right moves.
