According to Celtics.com’s Peter Stringer, center Scot Pollard has returned to the practice court following a left ankle injury. Yeah, I’m talkin ’bout practice.
Reserve center Scot Pollard took to the practice floor Monday for the full session, and he was upbeat about returning to action, noting that he was taking “baby steps” toward being ready to go for Friday’s season opener against the Wizards.
Pollard sprained his left ankle during workouts before training camp, so Monday was his first official practice with the Celtics.
“I’m obviously not in basketball shape but it was good to get out and run around and actually be a part of the team on the court,” Pollard said. “Hopefully, knock on wood, we’re past the point of [my ankle] reacting a huge amount.”
