Boston Celtics rookie forward Jared Sullinger will undergo surgery on his injured back and miss the rest of the season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Sullinger had moved into the Celtics’ starting lineup recently, and had become a pivotal part of the team’s nucleus.
After experiencing pain in the past two weeks, Sullinger had to leave Wednesday night’s victory over Sacramento in the first quarter and missed the Celtics’ practice on Thursday after the back pain worsened.
