WALTHAM, Mass. -- Boston Celtics forward/center Jared Sullinger was hospitalized this week because of a skin infection, but he has been released, and coach Brad Stevens said he hopes he'll be available for Wednesday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies at TD Garden (7 ET, ESPN).
Sullinger missed practices on Monday and Tuesday because of the infection, and Stevens said Sullinger's availability will be reassessed Wednesday.
Kelly Olynyk, who has missed the past nine games with a separated shoulder, resumed full-contact practice activities on Tuesday, and Stevens deemed him "50-50" for Wednesday's game.
"Kelly did everything in practice, will probably do a little bit more [after Tuesday's practice] with the young guys, [and] he'll re-evaluate [on Wednesday]," said Stevens. "He's day-to-day. I just asked him how he was doing and he said he was a little bit tentative. He didn't play that way. He played 5-on-5 and did all of that stuff, and that was encouraging.
"I would say, based on [Tuesday's practice], it would be 50-50, questionable, that he goes [Wednesday]."
"We'll see how it feels in the morning. See how it feels at shootaround," said Olynyk. "It's hard to tell right now."
Olynyk downplayed concerns about aggravating the injury, but stressed that the shoulder doesn't feel 100 percent yet.
"I don't know about reinjury, but it's just discomfort and pain," said Olynyk. "I don't feel like I can do what I do out there at a high level right now. ... I mean, it's still sore. There's discomfort and pain, so obviously I'm a little tentative. I don't feel like I'm at full strength or at full motion."
