Greg Stiemsma's latest rejection: A technical foul in Monday's game vs. Charlotte.BOSTON -- The NBA rescinded recent technical fouls assessed to Celtics centers Greg Stiemsma and Ryan Hollins, the league office confirmed Wednesday.

Hollins got tagged with a technical a mere 61 seconds into his Boston debut last Friday in Philadelphia after he appeared to simply get an elbow up a little too high on Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young while trying to box out on a Celtics' shot attempt.

Stiemsma earned an even more questionable technical during Monday's win in Charlotte after he barked back at Derrick Brown after fouling him on a dunk attempt. For Stiemsma, this is the second technical rescinded this season as he too got one in his Boston debut for hanging on the rim after trying to block a shot in New Orleans during the third game of the season.

Both Hollins and Stiemsma each officially have one technical foul this season.
