Celtics Suspend Jared Sullinger for Season Opener

Jared Sullinger (celticshub.com)

On the 24th of August, there was a confrontation between an NBA player and his girlfriend. That NBA player was Jared Sullinger of the Boston Celtics. He was accused of domestic violence, pinning his girlfriend to the floor as well as the bed. On September 3, Sullinger pleaded not guilty, and was released on $5,000 bail. His now ex-girlfriend ultimately refused to testify against Sullinger and the charges were dropped.

Nonetheless, due to Sullinger’s legal problems, the Celtics decided to suspend him for the season opener in Toronto. His suspension will only last the one game, as he will play Boston’s second game against Milwaukee on November 1. Maybe he will steer away from problems to stay on the court for the Celtics this year.

Due to injury, Sullinger only played in 45 games last season, his rookie season. Before undergoing season-ending back surgery, Sullinger averaged 6.0 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, not bad for a back up rookie. It will be interesting to see how many minutes he will get this season as the Celtics rebuild under new head coach Brad Stevens.
