Celtics’ Sullinger Cleared for Full Contact
In the midst of the chaos that has surrounded him, Jared Sullinger has arduously tried to remain focused on his rehabilitation from back surgery. And quietly, without fanfare as the Celtics attempt to reshuffle their roster, their second-year forward was cleared to participate in full basketball activities.
“It’s a slow process but I’m good, getting back into it,” he said more than six months after undergoing surgery Feb. 2 to repair a lumbar disk.
“I’ve been ready [for training camp], just give me about two more months to be a little smaller. I’ve been cleared to play. I’ve been cleared to have contact so I will be ready by Sept. 30.”
