We don’t do a lot of G-League injury updates here, but Tacko Fall is not your average G-League player.

The Celtics’ project big man has been with the Maine Red Claws, but is going to miss a week or two, at least, with a bone bruise on his knee.

In his first six games with the Red Claws, Fall is averaging 15 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per game. The 7'5" fan favorite needs a lot of seasoning — that’s why he’s in the G-League — but he’s showing promise and signs of development. It’s exactly what Celtics fans should be hoping for from him right now.
