Celtics’ Tremont Waters suffered concussion in Orlando

Boston Celtics guard Tremont Waters has suffered a concussion. It’s not exactly clear when he might have suffered the concussion.

The team claims that it was ‘three or four days ago.’ Head coach Brad Stevens said that Waters is in the “latter part” of the protocol.

That means that within the next several days, Waters could return to practice with the team inside the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida.

Waters — who was the 2019-20 G-League Rookie of the Year — is not expected to be an impact player with the Celtics. In Orlando, at best, he may only receive garbage time minutes.

Stevens already has a rotation that he will use, which is why Waters will see limited time. But this can be used as a learning experience for the 22-year-old New Haven, Connecticut native.

The second-round draft pick in the 2019 NBA Draft appeared in 10 games during the regular season before the coronavirus shut down. He did not start any one of those 10 games.

Waters averaged 3.3 points with 0.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game in 8.9 minutes. However, when he played in the G-League, he averaged 18 points, 7.3 assists, and 1.9 steals, along with 2.5 three-pointers per game.
