The Celtics medical staff in getting Jared Sullinger into surgery, as C’s PR just released the statement that Sullinger underwent a back procedure this afternoon:
The Boston Celtics announced forward Jared Sullinger underwent successful lumbar disc surgery today at the New England Baptist Hospital. Surgery was performed by the medical staff at the New England Baptist Hospital which is under the direction of Celtics Team Physician, Dr. Brian McKeon. Sullinger is expected to be ready in time for training camp for the 2013-14 season.
Amazing to think that two of the C’s youngest pieces are the ones that are coming down with these injuries over the past two years. Still no word yet on any moves from Boston to feel Sullinger’s void but we will keep you posted here at the TD Garden.
