Celtics rookie Guerschon Yabusele said he is “feeling great” as he continues to recover from May surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankles. Yabusele has yet to go full-speed in an on-court workout, but he has almost reached that point. “I’ve been running a little bit and doing some bike stuff and just keeping my ankle moving,” Yabusele said Thursday. “But I’m ready to go.”
“I had to still walk and do some stuff on my ankle to keep the motion moving and then have increased the mobility, too,” Yabusele said. “But yeah, most of the part was like relax and not be on the court and shooting. So it was tough, but I have to become stronger.”
But 6-foot-9-inch forward Guerschon Yabusele remains sidelined after undergoing surgery last month to have bone spurs removed from his ankles. Ainge said that Yabusele will not accompany the team during summer league play, instead remaining in Boston to maintain his rehabilitation schedule.
Guerschon Yabusele, a 2016 first-round pick of the Boston Celtics, underwent surgery recently to remove bone spurs from the top of both feet and will not participate in summer league, according to a league source.
Scott Souza: #Celtics draftee Guerschon Yabusele said he’s still feeling little pain in ankle, will be evaluated before determining next step this year.
Austin Ainge, Celtics director of player personnel, said because of the ankle sprain, no decision has been made as to whether the 6-foot-8, 260-pound big man will be in town to play or whether the focus will be on treating his ankle injury and not putting him on the floor. “He will come and be evaluated by medical staff and we will make a plan from there,” Ainge told CSNNE.com.
