Mickey was waived by the Celtics on Thursday, Brian Robb of 985 The Sports Hub reports. Entering the summer, Mickey was considered a long shot to make the final Celtics roster considering the team's offseason acquisitions up front. Mickey (6-8, 235) saw minimal playing time in his second professional season in 2016-17, averaging 1.5 points over 5.6 minutes, and his release will clear some cap space for the Celtics. He'll look to latch on with a team looking to add frontcourt depth, but he may be starting the year on a D-League team.
Mickey was recalled from the D-League on Thursday. Mickey was sent down to the D-League's Maine Red Claws on Sunday to compete in the D-League playoffs. Now with the Celtics, he'll provide bench depth, though he isn't likely to see much time unless an injury forces him into a larger role.
Mickey was assigned Sunday to the D-League's Maine Red Claws. The Red Claws are opening the D-League's Eastern Conference Finals against Raptors 905 on Sunday, so Mickey will head back down and operate as one of the team's top play-makers. He'll likely be recalled shortly after the game, but with the Celtics expected to shrink their rotation now that they're in the playoffs themselves, Mickey isn't expected to field any minutes unless an injury occurs higher up on the depth chart.
Mickey was recalled from the D-League on Thursday. Mickey was sent down to the Maine Red Claws earlier in the week to participate in the D-League playoffs, but he'll return to the Celtics to add depth as the postseason begins this weekend. Don't expect the LSU product to be a factor for Boston, barring multiple frontcourt injuries.
Mickey was assigned to the D-League's Maine Red Claws on Sunday. The Red Claws are still participating in the D-League playoffs, so Mickey will have an opportunity to see some extended run in a competitive setting, which he hasn't been getting with the Celtics. Mickey has been active for the Celtics' last three games, but has played a combined total of only six minutes.
