Vitor Faverani recalled, heading for MRI

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

After averaging a double-double for the Red Claws, Faverani returns to the Celtics with a tweaked knee and won't be available for tonight's game against the Sixers.

At the beginning of the season, Vitor Faverani looked like the solution to a longstanding absence at center for the Celtics.  He fell out of Stevens' rotation in favor of Kris Humphries and Brandon Bass, but has used his time in the D-League wisely.  He's averaged a healthy double-double up in Maine for the Red Claws and turned in his most explosive game last night scoring 27 points and pulling down 8 boards.  However, it looks like El Hombre Indestructible isn't so indestructible after all.  He's in Philadelphia for tonight's tilt with the Sixers, but won't be available with a tweaked knee.
