Boston Celtics center Tacko Fall suffered a concussion when he hit his head on a low ceiling while washing his hands at a practice facility, according to John Karalis of MassLive.
Not an issue for a large majority of players, but Fall is 7’5″ and the hit to his head lasted until the next morning when he woke up not feeling well.
Fall did not play in Wednesday’s season opener against the Philadelphia 76ers as he remains in concussion protocol. Celtics expect him to cleared “real soon.”
“Very close [to a return] from what I’ve been told,” Stevens told reporters, per Karalis. “But he wasn’t going to be active anyway.”
Fall is not expected to be a huge part of the Celtics this season as he signed a signed to a two-way contract with the franchise. If he shows to be what he was in college, then his role may expand over time.
