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

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 25, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Celtics’ Sullinger cleared to resume basketball activity

    Aug 6, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT

    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…

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

    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…

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    SEASON RECORDS New York:54-28, second seed in East Boston: 41-40, seven seed in East (the odd number of games is due to the cancelled one the day after the Boston Marathon tragedy, it did not impact the standings) SEASON SERIES The Knicks won the regular season 3-1, but both these teams went through seasons within…

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

    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…

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

    Feb 19, 2013, 5:25 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 12, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    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.…

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  18. Agent says Celtics knew Jared Sullinger would need surgery

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Italy Celtics  EA7 Emporio Armani Basketball

    This shouldn’t be a surprise. Jared Sullinger — who if he had come out a year before had been talked about as a possible Top-5 pick — fell all the way down the draft board to the Celtics at No. 21 because teams had medical concerns. Which was fine with Boston, they grabbed him and…

  19. Boston wins third straight because of their… offense? Yup.

    Feb 3, 2013, 5:05 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Courtney Lee

    The Boston Celtics won their fourth straight game without Rajon Rondo — this one against a title contender from the West (well, contender unless you ask Charles Barkley) — because of their high-powered offense. You read that right. The Celtics without Rondo and Jared Sullinger abused the fifth-best defense in the NBA this season on…

    Jeff Green

    Despite the recent troubles in Boston, where the Celtics have seen Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger go down in the same week with season-ending injuries, the team managed to keep it together enough to take care of a slumping Orlando Magic team on Friday. The play off Jeff Green was a huge reason why. Green…

  21. Report: Teams calling Celtics to see if Terry is available

    Feb 1, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Now with Jared Sullinger joining Rajon Rondo on the “done for the season” list, the vultures are circling. Other GMs are looking at the Celtics and want to try and pick the carcass clean. We’ve talked about teams inquiring about Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but then Ken Berger of CBSSports.com dropped this nugget on…

    Clearing physicals and lining all the ducks in a row can take some time, but newly acquired forward Rudy Gay has been cleared to play for the Raptors against the Clippers on Friday night. In addition, Memphis forwards Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye and Ed Davis have all been cleared for the Grizzlies in their tilt…

    Boston could not really take another punch to the gut, and they just got one. Rookie and crowd favorite Jared Sullinger is out for the rest of the season with his back injury, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports and the NBC Sports Network. He will undergo surgery on his back, confirms A. Sherrod Blakely…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

    Friday night of All-Star weekend is when the NBA likes to show off it’s future All-Stars. Or, at least the guys who seem like they are going to stick around the league for a while. It’s the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge — what the rest of us still call the rookie/sophomore game. Although for the…
