How serious is Celtics’ rookie Terry Rozier’s knee injury?
Terry Rozier shined in spots for the Boston Celtics during their overseas romp through Italy and Spain. He averaged 11.5 points in two games, and shot a sensational 64.3 percent from the floor.
But the rookie point guard may be out a little while with a knee injury. How serious is it? Here's the latest, per ESPNBoston's Chris Forsberg:
Rozier's game relies on speed and raw athleticism, so any ailment in his knee is a problem that must be dealt with right away. The Celtics should be as cautious as possible with their first-round pick, and it looks like that's exactly what they're doing.
Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier sat out Sunday's practice with left knee soreness, and coach Brad Stevens said the rookie likely will miss the next three to five days. Rozier, the 16th pick in June's draft, watched practice from the sideline Sunday with a white sleeve over his knee. He scored 14 points and shined in the fourth quarter of Thursday's exhibition win over Real Madrid during Boston's trek overseas last week.
