Vitor Faverani says that he feels "100% better" than a couple of months ago but doesn't want to rush back and re-injure his knee.
Vitor spoke! And said he hasn't spoken with team about a timetable yet.
Vitor Faverani on missing so much time due to his knee injury: "It's tough... I'm just happy that we have great doctors and training staff."
Vitor Faverani is at the practice facility and available to speak to the media for the first time this season.
Brad Stevens on LaMarcus Aldridge: "We have to be great against him to have a chance against (the Trail Blazers)."

So I guess we'll just chalk it up as a bad game & not talk about Rondo's complete disengagement from a game against best team in the league.
I hope the Gameday crew got a scorpion bowls at the Hong Kong last night.
Can not sleep at ALL!!!!
I appreciate Rose's honesty. Only reason we all feel taken aback by it is bc most athletes aren't so candid in their comments.
The Celtics top six games all aginst the East Vs. East: 4-2 (+5.2 margin, Biggest loss - 3) Vs. West: 0-5 (-11.0 margin, Smallest loss - 4)
More Rondo: "It's the defensive end of the floor. I think we've given up 100 points almost maybe every game this year."
Rondo: "We can talk offense all day long, but until we string some stops together, it's going to be tough every night."
Turner: "When you come in this league and you play this team, they're tough. These are old school big men. They have a hit-first mentality."
Olynyk on playing vs. Gasol and Randolph: "You can learn a lot from watching those guys play." http://t.co/MHd9WNYBl0
Cavs fall to 5-6. Very fortunate they play in the NFC South.
Stevens told Celtics they can learn a lot from the Grizzlies.
Stevens: "Gasol was huge. He was the best player on the floor. He kept making plays with the pass and the shot. It's a hard team to guard."
Stevens notes the truth: "the front line just smoked us."
Stevens: "I didn't think we executed with any juice in the first half. We were really stagnant on offense. The ball wasn't moving."
Also, Marc Gasol is so damn good.
Marc Gasol's big night (32 pts) pushed the Grizzlies past the Celtics 117-100. Olynyk led the Celtics with 18 pts. http://t.co/YjtdNU0g4B
117-100, Final The Celtics have lost 23 consecutive road games against the Western Conference. The Grizzlies have won 21 straight at home.
Dwight Powell alley oop!
James Young! And Dwight Powell!
Jon Leuer has been scary good tonight.
Nine minutes left here. Rondo (four points, five boards, three assists) has only played 23 minutes. Pressey still on court after media TO.
But then Evan Turner goes straight to the rim for a layup. So...
Nice adjustment by Grizzlies. Cs go small, try to take advantage of Green at the 4. Grizz hide Leuer on Evan Turner instead.
Kelly Olynyk (17 points) scored 14 in the third quarter, but it's 82-70 Grizzlies over the Celtics heading into the fourth.
Fun Fact: Kosta Koufas is really just Nenad Krstic after a stint in witness protection.
And an Olynyk 3-pointer cuts lead to 78-69, Olynyk with 14 in the 3Q and 17 for game.
Stevens yells "stay home" several times. Evan Turner does not stay home. Vince Carter drills a 3.
Hi Toronto. Is Bruno playing? Not sure I've heard from all of you yet.
Paul Pierce dunking left handed on the block like it's... Actually don't remember ever seeing him dunk like that.
Avery Bradley has to be smarter than that. Taking a contested 3-pointer w/ 7 sec left is a bad shot + gave Grizz time to hit that 3.
Tayshaun Prince nailed a buzzer-beating 3 to put the Celtics behind the Grizz 55-41 at halftime. Sully: 6 pts, 3 rebs http://t.co/3NdAMJgzLb
21 minutes in, these are the Celtics first free throws.
You don't really get a full appreciation of Marc Gasol's combination of grace and power until you see his game up close.
After hitting a jumper over former teammate Courtney Lee, Avery Bradley smiles, shrugs and tells Lee, "I had to."
The Grizzlies are on top of the Celtics 25-16 after the first. Sully has five points, but the C's are shooting just 32%. Gasol: 11 points.
Gasol and Randolph combined for 13 points over the first six minutes. So, yeah, just what the Celtics probably feared.
Gasol does not want to contest Olynyk at the arc early. He should keep firing away.
Tony Allen does not take the floor with the Grizzlies here in Memphis. Tayshaun Prince listed as a starter http://t.co/idSCdZVwe8
