Fab Melo Called Up
The Boston Celtics called up center Fab Melo from their D-League affiliate, the Main Red Claws, on Tuesday morning. Melo will fill the extra roster spot that the Rondo injury opened up, but that still does not mean Boston will not make a move.
Melo was recently called up just to see team doctors when he suffered a concussion. This time around Fab sat out his last game with a quad injury so there is some speculation he is just here to see team doctors again. Melo was at practice on Tuesday, so only time will tell if he is here to stick around. The Celtics have been in search of another big to help their rebounding, but many think Melo is not yet ready to produce on the NBA level, despite some D-League success.
