Yam Madar Rumors
Israeli guard Yam Madar is a candidate to play with German club Ratiopharm Ulm for the upcoming season should he not receive a contract to play in the NBA with the Boston Celtics, The Sports Rabbi Josh Halickman and Yakov Meir of Israel HaYom newspaper learned. The 20-year old Madar was selected by the Celtics in the 2020 NBA Draft with the 47th pick in the second round and is currently playing in the Summer League.
Yam Madar is also expected to miss at least Saturday’s game according to league sources after suffering a groin strain in the second half of Thursday’s win over the Orlando Magic. The 2020 second-round pick was set for additional playing time this weekend in the wake of Pritchard’s departure so the injury timing is tough for the 6-foot-3 guard as he attempts to convince Boston’s brass that he was worthy of a 15-man or two-way roster spot for next season.
