Celtics rookie Terry Rozier out 3-5 days with knee soreness

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier sat out Sunday's practice with left knee soreness, and coach Brad Stevens said the rookie likely will miss the next three to five days.

Rozier, the 16th pick in June's draft, watched practice from the sideline Sunday with a white sleeve over his knee. He scored 14 points and shined in the fourth quarter of Thursday's exhibition win over Real Madrid during Boston's trek overseas last week.

While the Celtics were down one guard in Rozier, they got another one back, as Evan Turner returned to practice Sunday after sitting out both games overseas due to right knee soreness. Turner showed no signs of rust while engaging in some post-practice one-on-one with teammate James Young.

"[The knee] feels pretty good," Turner said. "I got some running in [Saturday]. I ran a decent amount today. I mean, it feels fine. Nothing really to complain about, I don't think."

Turner said Rozier landed on his ankle during a practice in Milan and Turner felt a pop in the back of his knee. The team played it safe by keeping Turner out of game action on the trip.

"Worst comes to worst, I'll just wear a knee sleeve if it bothers me," Turner said. "But it doesn't really bother me."

The Celtics were also without Jonas Jerebko (illness) and Perry Jones (death in family) on Sunday. Jones is expected back with the team on Monday.

Boston finally sees some NBA competition later this week when it visits the Brooklyn Nets (Wednesday) and New York Knicks (Friday) in exhibition play.
