The Celtics recalled center Vitor Faverani from the NBADL's Maine Red Claws on Wednesday morning, but he was not able to participate in the team's shootaround and won't play tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers because of a sore left knee. Faverani injured the knee in Maine's 128-116 loss to Delaware. He scored 27 points with eight rebounds in 35 minutes, but said the knee "hurts" and he will have an MRI on Thursday when the Celtics return to Boston. Faverani has played three games for Maine and said he enjoys the experience, but the question is whether his most recent outing will take him out of the Celtics' lineup. Boston Globe

“So the draft is really important, and now we have a lot of assets. Draft picks are always tradable. Sometimes players aren’t always tradable, once they expose themselves on the court. Draft picks almost always are tradable. But development is really important for us, and I’m happy with the development of Kelly Olynyk and Phil Pressey and Jared Sullinger and Vitor (Faverani). Vitor has been a little inconsistent, which you’d expect with inconsistent minutes and a guy coming from playing European ball his whole life. It’s a whole different life.” Boston Herald
