Celtics president Danny Ainge said the team is unhappy with Jared Sullinger's conditioning.
"Jared just hasn't met his goals," Ainge said. "He's not up to the standards that he wants and is not up to the standards that we think are in his best interests for the long-term health of his career. He's not up to par, to the standards that we feel are necessary to be a consistent winning player and play with great conditioning."While Sullinger is set to miss the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his left foot, Ainge must be hopeful that his comments will push Sullinger to return in better shape for the 2015-16 season.

Jared Sullinger took responsibility for the fracture in his left foot, admitting that he needs to be better conditioned to start next season.

"I need to get in better shape," Sullinger said. He said he's the type of person who needs "a light switch to go on," which it apparently has after his injury and coach Brad Stevens' public criticism of Sully's poor conditioning. He has terrific fantasy potential and we'll keep an eye on him this summer to see if he follows through.

Jared Sullinger (foot) will adhere to a "strict" conditioning program as he recovers from his injury.

"The biggest thing is that he continues to really work on conditioning, because that is really important, but he’s going to have to rehab in some unique ways," coach Brad Stevens said. Sullinger, who will be in a boot for at least the next six weeks, is going to take up swimming as part of the rehab process. Sullinger will not have surgery, instead letting his stress fracture heal naturally.

Updating a previous report, Jared Sullinger is not expected to undergo surgery to repair the stress fracture he sustained on his left foot.

Sullinger is going to let his injury heal naturally, and will be in a walking boot for the next six weeks. With Sullinger sidelined, there will be more minutes to go around for guys like Kelly Olynyk (ankle), Brandon Bass, Tyler Zeller, and Jonas Jerebko. Olynyk isn't ready to play just yet, but he's expected to return during Boston's upcoming homestand, and he'll likely send Bass to the bench when he is able to go.

Jared Sullinger will miss the remainder of the season with a left metatarsal stress fracture.

This is devastating news for Sullinger and we wish him nothing but the best as he begins the road to recovery. There's no known timetable for his return, but hopefully he can be healthy in time for the start of training camp next season. Brandon Bass and Tyler Zeller are going to have their hands full in the frontcourt for the foreseeable future, while Kelly Olynyk (ankle) should see a larger role when he returns and should be stashed in all leagues. Sullinger finishes the season with averages of 14.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 3-pointer in 28.7 minutes per game.

Jared Sullinger suffered a stress reaction in the fourth metatarsal of his left foot, and he will be "out a while" according to head coach Brad Stevens.

Sullinger suffered the injury against the Hawks during the final game headed into the All-Star break, and this is a tough blow for the Celtics and fantasy owners alike. Brandon Bass and Tyler Zeller are going to get all the minutes they can handle with both Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk (ankle) sidelined, and both guys should be able to carve out some low-end value in standard leagues. Owners of Sullinger fighting for a playoff spot may need to consider dropping him, although it would be advisable to wait for an official timeline on his return.
Feb 19 - 5:33 PM

Jared Sullinger hit 6-of-15 shots for 17 points, 15 rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's comeback win over the Hawks.

With Kelly Olynyk out again with an ankle injury, and Sullinger getting the bulk of the big-man minutes in Boston, he's a must-start until further notice.
Feb 11 - 10:58 PM

Jared Sullinger showed up on time for Friday's game against the 76ers, scoring 22 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block ad one 3-pointer during a 107-96 win.

He was late to the arena twice in a four-game span this week and came off the bench for both games, but coach Brad Stevens didn't punish him beyond that. Sullinger was the focal point of the offense and he'll like have more plays drawn up for him with Marcus Smart not being a capable offensive point guard just yet. Sullinger should see most of his numbers rise as a must-start player.
Feb 7 - 1:15 AM

Jared Sullinger will start against the 76ers on Friday night.

He was late twice within four days and it cost him two starts for his team. Sullinger played well off the bench on Wednesday and he should see minutes close to 30 tonight. Expect to see less Tyler Zeller and Brandon Bass tonight, but their outlook doesn't change much.
Feb 6 - 5:49 PM

Brad Stevens said he doesn't think it's a major issue that Jared Sullinger was late for walkthrough for the second time in four days on Wednesday.

Sullinger came off the bench Wednesday night as punishment and was still able to put up 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two three-pointers in 21 minutes. "It's the second time in two years, it just happens to be the second time in [four] days," Stevens said. "I don't think it's an issue. But he's just gotta be here. Our precedent is set." As long as Sullinger can keep himself out of Stevens' doghouse, he's a must-start player in all fantasy leagues.

Jared Sullinger played well off the bench against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

He was late to shootaround for the second time in four days. Sullinger said he was stuck behind a funeral procession on Sunday and this time he said he was stuck behind an ambulance on Wednesday -- he apparently didn't want to pull a John McClane from Die Hard 3 today. Joking aside, Sullinger's rapport with Marcus Smart is getting better and he's a must-start player.
Feb 4 - 11:15 PM

Jared Sullinger was late to shootaround on Wednesday and will come off the bench against the Nuggets.

He was benched on Sunday for being late to a walkthrough, so this is a recurring issue. Sullinger did not play well in that game, scoring just seven points with three rebounds. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can still give him a look tonight, but he's not a DFS option in a favorable matchup. Tyler Zeller and Brandon Bass are interesting plays tonight.
Feb 4 - 5:48 PM

Jared Sullinger was terrific vs. the Knicks on Tuesday, scoring 22 points on 11-of-19 shooting with nine rebounds, a career-high six assists and only one turnover in 36 minutes.

This is a welcome sight for fantasy owners after Sullinger's past two duds, during which he averaged 7.5 points on 28.0 percent shooting in just 25 minutes. He's been a steady top-70 fantasy option this season, despite his recent mini-slump, and his rest-of-season outlook is bright since he's a pillar of Boston's core roster.
Feb 3 - 10:26 PM

Jared Sullinger will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, sending Tyler Zeller back to the bench.

The move to the bench for Sullinger was a disciplinary measure after he showed up late to Sunday's shootaround, but the move was never expected to be long-term. Go ahead and get him active, as he's set to bounce-back from a disappointing game on Sunday with a favorable matchup against the Knicks.
Feb 3 - 6:14 PM

Jared Sullinger's benching is expected to be just a one-game instance.

Sullinger was late to the team's walkthrough, so Tyler Zeller started Sunday's game ahead of him. It's not expected to be a trend, and Sully should be back in his usual spot on Tuesday.
