Aron Baynes has grade 2 ankle sprain

Baynes could be out for quite some time.

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Boston Celtics David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Celtics have announced that Aron Baynes has been diagnosed with a grade 2 ankle sprain.

I’m no doctor, but a quick google search tells me that this could be 6 to 8 weeks.

In regard to return to sport, Grade l sprains typically take 2-4 weeks or more to regain full mobility and for swelling to fully resolve, whereas Grade II sprains, being a little more severe, make take more like 6-8 weeks. A grade III sprain or avulsion fraction recovery time depends on several factors.

The playoffs start in mid-April, so you can deduce yourself what that means.

Losing Baynes is a bad blow for the Celtics who really rely upon his defense in the paint.
