Boston Celtics fans are in a fragile state of mind right now, and Terry Rozier didn't do anything to help their cause.
The morning after Boston's 117-112 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, Rozier fired off this cryptic tweet:
Let’s do us ALL a favor— Terry Rozier (@T_Rozzay3) November 20, 2018
What's Rozier getting at here? We have no idea, but that didn't stop Celtics fans from going to some worst-case scenarios. Does the young C's guard want out of Boston? Is the "favor" referring to a trade?
That's the conclusion some fans drew.
Bye bye Terry. All you had to do was embrace your role for one season.— Sticker (@Chadillac317) November 20, 2018
Just became my least favorite Celtic. Go to Danny like a man, don't tweet it. Jeez— Burns Burns Burns that RiNg oF FiRe (@zdburns) November 20, 2018

But other C's fans put a different spin on Rozier's words.
... and score more buckets in the paint. There I finished it for you.— Nick DeMarco (@BodegaPapi) November 20, 2018
And not panic 17 games into the season? Alright cool, same, good chat. @MsSamanthaMay— Handles3152@aim.com (@JHansen03) November 20, 2018
You are right Terry, the spaghetti sugar ranch sandwich slander needs to stop— Spartan 117 (@spartymoshow) November 20, 2018
Like we said: There's a lot of different ways to interpret this tweet. It could be a slight nod to LeBron James' infamous "FIT-OUT" tweet and hint at the Celtics' current rotation issues -- or it could have nothing to do with basketball whatsoever.
Until Boston starts winning more games, though, any potential sign of discord will be magnified on Causeway Street.
UPDATE (11:40 a.m. ET): We have a few developments here...
Rozier quickly followed up with a second tweet that appeared to downplay any trade rumors.
I forgot y’all get happy feet..I wasn’t talking about me 🤦🏾♂️ chill with the bad talk 😂— Terry Rozier (@T_Rozzay3) November 20, 2018
However, the C's point guard apparently "liked" a Twitter video posted by HoopsHype's Alex Kennedy listing possible teams that could pursue him in a trade.
