Yabusele (ankle) was seen without a walking boot ahead of Monday's game against the Pelicans, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.
Yabusele appears to be progressing with his recovery from an ankle sprain he suffered earlier this month. While this is a promising development, there still isn't a specific timeline to return for the French forward, who was only averaging 1.8 points and 1.1 rebounds in 5.4 minutes per game prior to the injury.
Coach Brad Stevens said Yabusele suffered "bad" ankle sprain and "will be out a while," A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Yabusele suffered the injury going for a block during the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over the Bulls. While the soon-to-be 23-year-old avoided a fracture, he's still expected to miss an extended period of time given the severity of the sprain. He was averaging just 1.8 points and 1.1 rebounds across 5.4 minutes per game prior to injuring himself.
Yabusele has been recalled from the G League.
Yabusele has been recalled from the G League in the wake of Friday's contest against Toronto. The native of France will probably not see much action however.
Yabusele banged out 16 points (6-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 27 minutes in Thursday's 108-104 home loss to Raptors 905.
The Dancing Bear's return to Maine was a bit of a disappointment with the Red Claws dropping to 1-4. Yabusele was one of three Celtics assigned to Maine for a boost in playing time. He'll hope to improve his three point shooting in the second game of the back-to-back homestand Friday versus the Mad Ants.
