The news isn't good for Jared Sullinger. This came from the Celtics PR team.
The Boston Celtics announced today that, following further medical evaluation at the New England Baptist Hospital, it was determined that forward Jared Sullinger has sustained a left metatarsal stress fracture and will be out for the remainder of the 2014-15 regular season.
This was the worry when we got word about his injury, now it is official.
So, now what?
