Celtics’ Sullinger Eyes Training Camp Return
Satch Sullinger has been in town for about a week, and on Friday he was more than ready to prepare one of his specialties – fried catfish – for his son, Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger.
But Jared put what’s good for his waistline ahead of what’s good to his pallette, understanding all too well how easily the pounds can add up while he recovers from season-ending back surgery.
“I just know I’m not as active as I was before,” the younger Sullinger told CSNNE.com, and added that he has lost about 10 pounds since his Feb. 1 season-ending surgery. “Before, I could eat that food, but I was at shoot-around after that or doing my pre-game routine. But now, it’s like I’m just sitting here or doing a little bit of things for rehab but it’s not the same. The way my metabolism is, weight can go through the roof if I don’t watch it.”
The earliest anyone anticipates Sullinger on the floor is during training camp, which he said on Friday was indeed the plan.
