Jared Sullinger out for season with back injury
The Boston Celtics have lost another player for the rest of the season due to injury. According to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo! Sports, rookie forward Jared Sullinger will miss the remainder of the season with an unspecified back injury.
Sullinger did not practice with the Celtics on Thursday due to back spasms, and head coach Doc Rivers had previously told reporters that Sullinger was 50-50 to play against the Orlando Magic on Friday night. But now it appears the injury is serious enough to merit missing the remainder of the NBA season.
