Although Yabusele doesn’t normally play significant minutes, he has become a fan favorite over his two years in Boston. Luckily for Celtics fans, the gruesome injury did not result in a broken ankle.
#NEBHInjuryReport: Guerschon Yabusele suffered a “bad (ankle) sprain,” according to Stevens. “No break, so that’s good. But he’ll probably out awhile.”
