Boston Celtics rookie Fab Melo has had an interesting first season. It started with him breaking a folding chair during a rookie photo shoot. He then was sent down to the D-League where he was averaging a respectable 10.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks. And just recently he had been called up to Boston.
But not to suit up for the Celtics. But to get proper treatment for a concussion he had suffered by bumping his head on a doorway.
Celtics rookie Fab Melo suffered a concussion last weekend after bumping his head on the doorway in his Sioux Falls hotel room while the Maine Red Claws (Melo’s NBA Development League assignment) were in South Dakota for back-to-back games against the Skyforce.
Melo was seen by the Red Claws medical staff and did not play in the team’s Monday afternoon game. On Wednesday, the Celtics recalled him to be evaluated by team doctors that night.
“I still have a little headache,” Melo said. “Sometimes I can’t really focus on something for a long time, that’s it.”
And that’s what we like to call, “tall people problems”.
