    Shane Larkin has agreed to a 'lucrative' deal to return to Andalou Efes of Turkey.

    Larkin was reported to have some interest from guard-needy teams like Detroit, Orlando and OKC, but he'll stay in Europe to collect a big check and play in a starring role. Last season's BSL Finals MVP, Larkin could pop up again in free agency next summer.

    Shane Larkin has received interest from the Magic, Pistons and Thunder, per Alex Kennedy.

    Larking last appeared in the NBA in 2017-18, logging 54 appearances with the Celtics. He spent last season with Andolu Efes of Turkey, who finished second in the EuroLeague and won the Turkish BSL title. Larkin was named BSL Finals MVP. He’ll provide backcourt depth if he does make his return to the NBA.

    Shane Larkin has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.8 million deal with Anadolu Efes in Turkey.

    It's surprising that Larkin didn't get more action in free agency after he stepped up for the Celtics amidst their wave of late-season guard injuries. He said recently that playing time would be his top priority on the market, and it's tough to argue with the fact that he'll get way more run overseas than he would've in the NBA. Expect him to hit the rumor mill once his Turkish season ends.

    Shane Larkin mentioned that he cares most about playing time and that everything else will fall into place later.

    Larkin went on to say that he doesn't want to be one of of those guys who goes to a different team every year but the chances of him re-signing with the Celtics are looking slim. It doesn't seem likely that he re-signs with Boston this offseason, but he's too talented to be left on the market so he'll be on a team come opening night next year. No matter where he is though, he won't be helping much fantasy wise.

    Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said he does not expect Shane Larkin (shoulder) to be available for tonight's Game 6 versus the Cavs.

    Larkin has yet to log a minute during the series. A concrete update should come shortly, but as of now he shouldn't be expected to take the floor anytime soon.

    While Shane Larkin was able to do some practice work and had "a great day" on Sunday, Brad Stevens confirmed that he's definitely not going to play on Monday.

    Larkin was initially thought to be out for most of the Eastern Conference Finals but yesterday's reports had some speculating that he could make a surprise return in Game 4. That's not the case, but we'll be on the lookout for further updates before Games 5 and 6. Larkin won't play a ton upon his return but every team could use an extra ball-handler from time to time.

    Shane Larkin could be available for the Celtics as soon as Game 4 as he was seen practicing with Jay Larranaga on Sunday with no issues.

    If Larkin is not able to play in Game 4, it seems as though he will be available for Game 5 at the latest. This is good news for Danny Ainge and the Celtics as he believed that Larkin might miss the entire series. Larkin was providing valuable minutes off the bench for the Celtics during the playoffs, so his presence should take some minutes off of some starters who have been playing more than usual throughout the ECF against the Cavs.

    Shane Larkin (shoulder discomfort) has been ruled out for Games 3 and 4 against the Cavs.

    Coach Brad Stevens said that Larkin is unlikely to appear in the series even if it goes beyond Game 4. He last appeared against the 76ers on May 7 and remains without a time table. Even though Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown are all healthy, there are some minutes available for Larkin once he returns but that might not be for a while.

    Brad Stevens said Thursday that Shane Larkin is "progressing well, but is not anywhere close to playing."

    Larkin played just two minutes in Game 4 of the Philadelphia series and has not played since – which is also partially due to not diving for a loose ball that made Stevens mad. The Celtics are doing just fine without Larkin in the rotation but any depth in the playoffs is always better. His minutes have been absorbed by Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown and they do not seem to be slowing down at all right now. Boston has had a large difference in their play at home and on the road and another guard could help them but do not expect Larkin to play meaningful minutes anytime soon.

    Shane Larkin (shoulder sprain) has been ruled out of Games 1 and 2 and is unlikely to play all series.

    Brad Stevens said that Larkin will miss the first two games and will likely miss the entire ECF. He was only averaging 15 minutes during this playoff run so it's very possible that his minutes just get split up between Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart, who have each already had incredible playoff performances.

    Danny Ainge believes Shane Larkin is likely to miss most of, if not all, of the Eastern Conference Finals series against LeBron James and the Cavs.

    Throughout the playoffs, Larkin has averaged 14 minutes per game, so losing those minutes in the rotation will force Brad Stevens' hand to make some key rotation decisions. Larkin was the energy boost off the bench and primary point guard behind Terry Rozier, so even though his stats do not show it he had a tremendous impact on the court. In Game 5 without Larkin, Rozier played 40 minutes and no new players were added to the rotation. Therefore, fatigue might be the biggest factor added to the Celtics team without Larkin as his 14 minutes will likely be added to the likes of Rozier, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown. If Larkin comes back it will likely be near the end of the series, but the Celtics are planning as if he will not play.

    Shane Larkin said that an MRI on his shoulder "showed some problems in there" and he's unlikely to play in the Conference Finals.

    Larkin probably doesn't have a place on the court against the Cavs anyway, but it does add another name to the already-lengthy injury report for the Celtics. If either of their point guards gets into foul trouble they could find themselves in tough.

    Brad Stevens said that Shane Larkin has a sprained shoulder and is out tonight and for the foreseeable future.

    The hits keep on coming and the Celtics are now going to be without Larkin in addition to Gordon Hayward, Kyrie Irving and Daniel Theis. Stevens will have to be even more creative with his lineups while Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart will be very busy in Game 5 tonight.

    Game notes have Shane Larkin listed as doubtful for Game 5 against the Sixers on Wednesday.

    His status is up in the air as we still haven’t heard anything official about the gravity of his injury. The Celtics will be looking to close out the series tonight and Marcus Smart along with Terry Rozier are expected to carry a heavy load regardless.

    Brad Stevens offered up no updates on the condition of Shane Larkin, who left Monday's Game 4 with a left shoulder injury and did not return.

    Larkin has only played spot minutes for the Celtics in this series, and even with the Sixers leaning more on smaller personnel with the addition of T.J. McConnell to their starting five, Larkin won't be much of a factor. If he ends up missing Game 5 it could lead to a small boost in playing time for Marcus Smart but his absence won't change much as long as everyone else stays out of foul trouble.
