Coach Brad Stevens said Monday that Fall (knee) is "looking great" and should resume practicing with the G League's Maine Red Claws on Tuesday, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Fall has been sidelined since Nov. 25 with a bone bruise in his right knee but appears to have mostly moved past the injury at this stage. Assuming his return to practice this week goes well, Fall could be ready to rejoin the Red Claws lineup shortly thereafter.
Fall has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee and will be re-evaluated in one-to-two weeks.
Fall suffered the injury during Monday's game against the Memphis Hustle. He'll be out at least a week, but considering that the given timeline is for reassessment, it will likely be a longer absence.
Fall generated 16 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 18 rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot in Monday's 119-96 road loss to the Memphis Hustle.
Fall's impressive rebounding was not enough to prevent Crustacean Nation's first loss of the season. This was Fall's second straight game with only one blocked shot. He's now averaging 2.7 blocks per contest. Fall continues to come off the bench, but is averaging 24 minutes of run per game. Coach Darren Erman continues to start the Red Claws with a small ball lineup.
Fall banged out 16 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 FT), 13 rebounds, six blocks and two assists across 27 minutes in Friday's 103-100 home debut win over the Mad Ants.
Fall once again came off the bench for the Red Claws and once again supplied a double-double and a flurry of blocks. The 7-foot-6 center provides an absurdly large pass target for cutting Claws and his rim protection might be the best in the G League. We'll see if coach Darren Erman continues to bring Fall off the bench or promotes him to the starting unit on Sunday at home versus the Raptors 905.
Fall banged out 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 25 minutes in Saturday's 148-125 opening night win in Delaware.
Fall had seen four minutes of run with the Celtics, so technically this was not Fall's professional debut. Despite coming off the bench, Fall was the dominant inside force for the Red Claws, leading the squad in rebounds and adding three blocks. Surprisingly, the 6-foot-8 Yante Maten got the start at center, but played five less minutes than Fall. Next up for Crustacean Nation is Friday's home opener versus the Mad Ants.
Fall was recalled from the G League prior to Friday's game against the Knicks, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Fall will be available to play for Boston Friday night with both Enes Kanter (knee) and Robert Williams (hip) out of commission. He's appeared in one game this season, scoring four points and snagging three rebounds against New York.
Fall began working out Monday with the G League's Maine Red Claws, Beth Brogan of WCSH 6 Portland reports.
With minor injuries to Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter, Fall was able to sneak into one Celtics game before heading to Maine. In that one game, a blowout over the Knicks, Fall posted four points and three rebounds in his NBA debut. Expect Fall to stay in Maine for most of the season, unless Boston experiences more serious injuries in their frontcourt.
Fall registered four points (2-4 FG) and three rebounds during the Celtics' 118-95 win over the Knicks on Saturday. He also committed two fouls in four minutes.
The 7'6" big man made his long-awaited NBA debut, although it only came due to the absences of both Enes Kanter (knee) and Daniel Theis (ankle). Even in that scenario, his playing will be scarce and he shouldn't be much of fantasy asset as he's buried down the team's depth chart.
Fall cleared the concussion protocol and is active for Saturday's game against the Knicks.
Fall was sidelined for the first two games of the season after suffering the concussion last weekend, but he's good to go for Saturday's contest. The 7-foot-6 rookie will have a chance to make his NBA debut in New York with Enes Kanter (knee) and Daniel Theis (ankle) both ruled out.
Fall (concussion) will not play Friday against the Raptors, Tom Westerholm of MassLive.com reports.
Fall will remain sidelined for a second straight game to start the season as he continues to work his way back from a concussion he suffered over the weekend. Seeing as Fall is still in the league's concussion protocol, he seems unlikely to return for Saturday's game against the Knicks.
Fall (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.
Fall suffered a concussion during Saturday's practice, so it's unsurprising to see he won't be available for Wednesday's opener. He could have a shot to take the court Friday against Toronto.
Fall (concussion) participated in most of Tuesday's practice but was held out of all live drills, Clevis Murray of The Athletic reports.
It's good news that the rookie was able to make it through most of practice, though it doesn't appear as though he's passed through concussion protocol just yet. At this point, his chances of suiting up for Wednesday's regular-season opener don't look good.
Fall (head) is in concussion protocol, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Fall was hit in the head during Saturday's practice and, as a result, has reportedly entered concussion protocol. It's still remains unclear whether or not the rookie will be available for the season opener Wednesday against the 76ers. If Fall did indeed suffer a concussion though, he'll more than likely have to sit out Wednesday.
Fall sat out Saturday's practice after being hit in the head, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Fall's injury and his timetable for return are largely unclear. Depending on the severity of the bump, there's a chance that the rookie center may have to enter concussion protocol which would likely extend his recovery timetable. Look for an update clarifying Fall's status to come ahead of Wednesday's season opener against Philadelphia.
Fall had four points (2-2 FG, 0-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and two steals in seven minutes during Sunday's 118-72 preseason victory over the Cavaliers.
Fall, who was upgraded to a two-way contract, played seven minutes of garbage time in Sunday's blowout victory. The crowd was into it, cheering everytime he touched the ball. Fall is unlikely to play any meaningful minutes but is certainly already a crowd favorite. There is no need to consider him outside of the deepest formats.
The Celtics converted Fall's contract to a two-way deal Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Fall had been attending the Celtics' training camp on an Exhibit 10 deal, but the organization's decision to convert him to one of its two two-way contracts should grant the 7-foot-6 center a little more security. Per the terms of the agreement, Fall is eligible to spend a maximum of 45 days in the NBA in 2019-20, so he'll likely see the bulk of his action with the G League's Maine Red Claws as a rookie.
Fall scored five points and had two blocks in eight minutes Sunday against the Hornets.
Fall played only a small role off the bench in the second half, but the bigger news is that he's officially moved past the minor knee sprain that limited him toward the end of last month. The Celtics brought in the former UCF standout as an undrafted free agent, and he's likely to use 2019-20 as a developmental year.
Coach Brad Stevens said he anticipates that Fall (knee) will be medically cleared by Tuesday, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Fall sustained a minor knee sprain earlier in September but all indications are that he'll be ready to go when the Celtics open camp on Oct. 1. Stevens noted that the Celtics will likely keep Fall limited for the next week, however. "I don't know if we'll have him do anything, per se, until he gets on the court next week against live competition," Stevens said.
Fall suffered a minor knee sprain during workouts and is expected to be out for a week, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
The injury occurred while Fall collided with another player on a block attempt. He should be healthy in time for training camp.
