Jared Sullinger

  1. Don’t look now but Celtics have won four in a row, lead Atlantic Division

    Nov 12, 2013, 11:20 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics have won four in a row, improved to .500 (4-4), and right now that is good enough to lead the Atlantic Division (tied with Philadelphia). After a 0-4 start I didn’t think I’d be writing that sentence. It certainly beats even Celtics’ fans expectations. There are things we can pick apart with…

  2. Kevin Love among four NBA players to get flop warning

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:50 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is leading the league in points per game (29.7), second in rebounds per game (14.7) and so he wanted to be one of the first to get a flopping warning from the league also. Well, congratulations, you’ve done it. Love was one of four players to get a flopping warning from the league…

  3. Celtics suspend Sullinger for opener following offseason arrest

    Jared Sullinger

    The charges have been dropped after the girlfriend and alleged victim refused to testify against him, but there are still repercussions from Jared Sullinger’s offseason arrest for on a domestic violence charge. The Boston Celtics have suspended Sullinger from the team’s opening night game Wednesday night in Toronto, an announcement the organization made Tuesday. He…

  4. Domestic violence charges against Celtics’ Sullinger dropped

    Jared Sullinger

    We tell you when these cases come up, it’s only right we also tell you when they go away. Which is what happened in the case of Celtics second-year player Jared Sullinger. On Aug. 31 he had a fight with his girlfriend and a few days later he was arrested and eventually arraigned on charges…

  5. Final seconds of Celtics/Raptors was…. pure preseason

    Just because the games are meaningless doesn’t mean there isn’t some drama — there are close games and exciting endings in the preseason, too. Look at the end of the Celtics/Raptors game from Wednesday. After a Celtics bucket on a nice cut and finish by Jared Sullinger, it’s a two point game with 11 seconds…

  6. Rondo could be out until December Celtics GM Ainge says

    Sep 24, 2013, 11:24 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Well, the good news is Avery Bradley is healthy and ready for training camp to start. That’s particularly good because he could be playing the point for the first couple months of the season, sharing time with rookie Phil Pressey. All that because Rajon Rondo could be out until December. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was…

  8. Expect to see some Kris Humphries as center in Boston

    Sep 23, 2013, 9:02 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Kris Humphries isn’t a center but he can play the spot in a pinch — last season in Brooklyn he played 2 percent of the team’s minutes at the five (according to 82games.com). He was about average on offense, a little below average on defense, but he’s not terrible at the spot. The season before…

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  11. Brad Stevens: No timetable for Rajon Rondo’s return, urges him to do so when ready

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:39 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Brooklyn Nets, Kris Humphries

    There’s far less of a sense of urgency for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics lineup than there was for say, Derrick Rose to try to get back on the court for the Bulls last season. We may see a similar vibe around the Celtics to the one we saw in Chicago, though, at…

  15. Coach Brad Stevens refuses to put timeline on Rondo’s return

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:11 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    When is Rajon Rondo going to be ready to play for Boston? Danny Ainge was hoping for opening night. Jared Sullinger hinted it could be more like December. New Celtics coach Brad Stevens is not going to play your game. At least publically. The Boston Herald tried to get him to say when Rondo would…

  16. Jared Sullinger on Rajon Rondo’s return: ‘Hopefully he’ll be back by December’

    Aug 25, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo suffered a torn ACL injury that prematurely ended his season last January, and while Celtics GM Danny Ainge has been eying an opening night return for this star point guard all along, the actual timetable may end up being a bit longer than that. Jared Sullinger, a teammate of Rondo’s who also had…

  17. Celtics’ Sullinger cleared to resume basketball activity

    Aug 6, 2013, 5:56 PM EST

    Italy Celtics  EA7 Emporio Armani Basketball

    Jared Sullinger should be back and ready to go for Boston’s training camp. Sullinger was having a solid rookie season for the Celtics — 6 points and 5.9 rebounds a game, a PER of 13.5 — and was showing some promise, when he needed back surgery. It wasn’t a huge shock — he had fallen…

    NBA Rookies are paid on the low end of the NBA scale, but it’s not quite “I need to pick up a side job” money either. Yet there was Celtics big man Jared Sullinger working at a Taco Bell Wednesday. The medical expenses from his back surgery where not that bad, this was all done…

  19. Bad trend for Boston: Knicks’ veteran bench mattered, Celtics’ didn’t

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green

    Tyson Chandler, looking rusty after missing a lot of time with a bulging disc in his neck, wasn’t himself. The New York Knicks count on him to be a defensive force that owns the paint and get a few points off pick-and-rolls, but he wasn’t really doing either. So Mike Woodson turned to his bench…

  21. Three Stars of the Night: Old Man for Rivers

    Feb 26, 2013, 12:43 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, DeMarre Carroll

    The Celtics were already pretty old to start the season. When Rajon Rondo tore his ACL, they got older. When rookie forward Jared Sullinger went out for the season, they were about as young as a men’s rec league team. Older doesn’t necessarily mean worse, of course. Doc Rivers called it when the injuries happened…

  23. Like every other GM right now, Danny Ainge says not to expect a deal

    Feb 19, 2013, 5:25 PM EST

    Danny Ainge

    If you only believed the public comments of NBA GMs, no trade was ever going to happen in the NBA. To make sure they have some leverage, they all say nothing is likely to happen. They talk but their not interested. Danny Ainge is the king of that — he’s had some conversations about everyone…

  24. It’s official: Celtics’ Leandro Barbosa tore ACL, done for season

    Feb 12, 2013, 4:28 PM EST

    Doc Rivers, Leandro Barbosa

    The Boston Celtics have been beset by injuries this season — and not to their older, veteran guys but rather to their young studs. The latest is Leandro Barbosa — the Brazilian backup point guard tore his ACL in the third quarter Thursday night and he is done for the season, reports A. Sherrod Blakely…

  25. Celtics Leandro Barbosa leaves game with knee injury, it doesn’t look good

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:15 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Ugh. Already without Rajon Rondo for the rest of this season, the Celtics had been counting on more from Leandro Barbosa off the bench. But late in the third quarter he went to the ground with what looked like a pretty bad knee injury. The MRI will be tomorrow, but nobody seems optimistic, reports A.…
