Jared Sullinger missed Thursday’s practice due to some dehydration and a skin infection, but Brad Stevens said he would be “good to go” for Friday’s game against the Rockets.
Sullinger has been a top 70-90 guy over the last month with a healthy 26.6 mpg while Kelly Olynyk has been out. Olynyk did not take contact in Thursday’s practice and is doubtful for this game due his shoulder injury, but he will return in the near future and once he’s up to speed you’ll see about 1-2 rounds of slippage out of Sullinger. Olynyk is a bit of a risk because he’ll need to get up to speed, but he has some nice upside and owners shouldn’t feel bad about a speculative add if they need a big man.
