Jared Sullinger Suspended One Game By Celtics

 

Jared Sullinger had criminal charges dismissed against him in Waltham District Court yesterday, in part due to the fact the victim in the case (Sullinger’s girlfriend) had refused to testify against him. Despite these charges being dropped, the team released a statement just moments ago announcing that the second-year forward would be suspended for the team’s opener in Toronto tomorrow night.

Here is full statement just released by the team:

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have suspended forward Jared Sullinger one game for his role in an incident that occurred on August 31, 2013. The suspension will be served during the team’s game at Toronto on October 30, 2013.

“Jared’s case was dismissed yesterday in Waltham District Court,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “While we are satisfied that this was the correct ruling, we are suspending Jared for one game because he failed to meet the high expectations we have for all Celtics employees.”

The team will have no further comment on this matter.

Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston rehashed the allegations against the power forward from late August:

Sullinger faced charges of assault and battery, destruction of property, and witness intimidation in connection with an Aug. 31 confrontation with his girlfriend. The woman accused Sullinger of pinning her to a bed and the floor at his Waltham home. On Sept. 3, Sullinger pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation and was released on $5,000 bail.

CH’s Take: I have to give the Celtics organization credit in this situation for holding Sullinger accountable with the suspension, despite the charges being dismissed. Based upon the details surrounding the case, it’s clear that Sullinger was in the wrong for the situation in some form. He messed up, admitted as such in his public statement, and now faces a punishment for it.

Without Sullinger available in the opener, Kelly Olynyk, Kris Humphries, Brandon Bass, and Vitor Faverani should also see extensive action at the power forward and center spots, with the possibility of Gerald Wallace playing some stretch four as well. Facing a team that performs well on the glass in Toronto, the entire Celtics’ roster will have their work cut out for them in Game 1.

Full reaction from Brad Stevens and Jared Sullinger upcoming at C’s practice here at the Hub later this afternoon.

    Olynyk outspeeds him, Bass outshoots him, Sullinger outrebounds both. Now to fuse them together to create KG jr.
