Celtics Injury Update: Vitor Faverani may be out for the entire season

By on 11/23/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Boston Celtics fell to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday by the score of 117-100. The loss dropped the Celtics to 4-7 on the season, third in the Atlantic Division. Things will not get any easier for the Celtics as they play the Trail Blazers on Sunday. The Celtics will continue to be without Vitor Faverani due to a knee injury and there is no timetable for his return.

I reported on October 14 that Faverani, whose 2013-2014 season ended in surgery in March after tearing the meniscus in his left knee, had swelling in his knee and underwent knee surgery and would be out 6-to-8 weeks.

A. Sherrod Blakely, who covers the Celtics for, tweeted the following update on Faverani.
Faverani, a 26-year old center from Brazil, played in 37 games for the Celtics last season. He averaged 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game. With Faverani out, expect Tyler Zeller and Joel Anthony to see more playing time behind starter Kelly Olynyk.
