Jared Sullinger Out Tonight With Concussion

 

Concussions are no joke. They are the insidious injuries threatening to take down a multi-billion dollar industry, and athletes everywhere are being correctly cautioned to take any concussion symptom seriously. It’s one thing for a player to be hobbled after they retire. It’s another thing entirely for them to be mentally compromised — struggling to think, process and control their emotions. For all these reasons, the Celtics are absolutely correct in letting Jared Sullinger take his time coming back from the concussion he suffered against the Lakers on Friday.

Is this a tanking move? Probably not, but I’m not sure it matters — allowing Sullinger more time to recover is good regardless of the motivation. That being said, Utah’s large front line will likely benefit greatly from Sullinger’s absence, and with Utah just a game behind the Celtics in the standings, you can bet management wasn’t exactly pushing to get him back.

However, as Jay King of Mass Live points out, this robs us of the first match-up between Sully and his high school friend Trey Burke. This is a bummer. Get well soon, Sully.

    On the subject on tanking. The 76′ers are doing it right. They are losing to Milwaukee by over 30 right now. Not to mention they dumped salary, have young talent, and draft picks galore.

    Celtics are 4th worst now, and with Sullinger’s mild concussion suddenly taking him out for multiple games and Rondo resting anytime we have a back to back, we can hopefully slide lower, and with some lottery luck of the irish, grab Jabari Parker.

      KO is quietly developing into a very solid NBA player. I am getting really excited to see what he is going to look like A. at the end of this year and B. at the start of next year

        21 points, 8 rebounds, woooooooooo.
        He makes you wonder if maybe it’s worth starting him at Center and sacrificing defense for offense.
