Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger will miss the rest of the season with a back injury, league sources tell Y! Sports. He will need surgery..

Its always weird it seems like when one key player goes down then all the players start getting injured.

So I guess the question on everyone's mind is does this give Ainge more reason to rebuild the team?

i think this means the sixers take that 8th seed.

They still have enough to hold on to the 8th seed.

The guy was actually playing solid ball. Always hate to see injuries that are season ending.

teams passed on him cause of his legs? not back, right.
Teams will still want him in a bigger deal, still Celtic should keep him.

Clueless... He was playing very solid basketball as of late and getting a ton of minutes... This is a huge loss for the Celtics as he was the most effective rebounder on the team.

He was +50 in the last 17 games while the team was -18 and was leading the Celtics in +/- at the time of this injury.

Praying for a strong recovery.

Nope, it was his back.

02-01-2013, 05:14 PM
Ugh, I hate to see this :sigh:

I love Sully. He's got the talent to make it in this league and he certainly works hard enough. That back is really bad news though. There's a reason teams passed him over, it was a bigger deal than people realized at Ohio State. Hopefully his back can stay healthy once this surgery is over.

No, his back was red flagged by a lot of teams.

The bottom half of the east teams are pretty garbage so they can still make the playoffs but they'd be better served blowing it up. It's not like they're a threat for a first round upset........

This guy cost himself millions by turning down the unanimous #1 pick to chase a National Championship that he never got. Dropped 21 slots in the draft and might never get a second NBA contact.

No, teams passed on him because of his back. Likely because it was known that he would need surgery at some point.

I don't consider his back issues to be career threatening but it definately going to be something that will be closely monitored by whatever team has him under contract.

To those saying hes clumsy and isn't a big loss are dumb. He's not overly athletic but that doesn't make him clumsy? He doesn't have a crazy vertical but actually has great footwork and is very good at getting position. He isn't a big loss in the sense of stats but as a big man off the bench ( and hes actually been starting some lately) has been very efficient. Huge loss for a team who already very thin up front.

Praying for a speedy recovery, not just a good baller but seems to be a smart young kid who has done nothing but be a professional all season.

Get well, Sullinger. Stay classy.

So you shouldn't take a chance on a high caliber player late in the first round because he might have an injury concern?

The end of the first round is a complete question mark in terms talent translating to the NBA. To get a guy like Sullinger, even if his back is a concern, is a no brainer.

When you've got top 5 pick potential and you can get 5-7 years out of it, it's a great pick for the Celtics considering that they got him at 21. Add in the fact that it's the NBA where players usually picked that late are usually nothing more than an end of the bench reserve.

This. People are talking like we had the #1 pick, he sure was playing like he was in the top 10 of this draft class, and probably even higher than that. Plays with such a high IQ too which is why I am not too concerned with his back, he has never relied on athleticism to get the job done.

Backs are a tricky body part, but Jared is still young and surgeons are getting better and better. I think he has to shed a lot of weight before next season. Like it's been mentioned this isn't a guy relying on his physical gifts a la Dwight Howard.

All and all I think Sullinger still has a bright future in the league.

Totally agree. He can still come back from this.

Not to surprised by this. He had back issues going in to the draft but he was primarily perimeter player. The Celtics turned him intoa physical paint player. He did good but the Celtics should've developed him more physically for that type of play.

So, a 20-year-old rook was the deciding factor in our playoff hunt? C'mon.
