The Celtics had an open practice in Waltham today in front of select friends/season ticketholders which lasted about 90 minutes before a small crew of Celtics, including new addition Carlos Arroyo, fielded questions from the media. Here’s a quick rundown of what we learned.
Glen Davis Takes Questions: The power forward who has missed the team’s last two games with a strained patella tendon, was upbeat upon taking questions from the media and felt great about his progress in recovering from the injury. Nonetheless, he still was unsure about his potential return date, although Doc Rivers hinted the team was planning on keeping him out “at least a couple more games” in order to get him back on the floor completely healthy.
Carlos Arroyo’s Intro: The newest Celtic point guard took questions from the media for about seven minutes in a rather uneventful session. Arroyo seemed surprised about how the Heat released him and appeared unsure of why he went from the starting lineup to the waiver wire so quickly. However, the veteran guard was savvy enough to sidestep any extra resentment or revenge questions towards the Heat, saying he only “wanted to win a championship” with Boston. Naturally, a crying question was asked as well about the Miami locker room, but Carlos delivered a playful no comment to that one as well. His line of the day? “I like to say you guys got 4 million new followers in Puerto Rico, they’re truly excited about my situation.” Welcome to CelticsHub Puerto Rico fans!
