Celtics’ Gugliotta back on injured list
Boston, MA (Sports Network) – The Boston Celtics Wednesday placed forward Tom
Gugliotta back on the injured list.
Gugliotta, who has a mild right ankle sprain, is averaging 1.5 points and 2.3
rebounds in eight games this season. He played in just one game after coming
off the injured list on December 1 with lower back pain.
Gugliotta signed with the Celtics in August after splitting time last season
with Phoenix and Utah. He was traded by the Suns to the Jazz along with a
first-round pick in February in exchange for Keon Clark and Ben Handlogten.
The 34-year-old Huntington Station, New York native was selected in the first
round (sixth overall) of the 1992 draft by the Washington Wizards. The former
NC State star has also enjoyed stints with Golden State and Minnesota and has
averaged 13.4 points and 7.5 rebounds in his career.
To fill roster spot, the Celtics activated forward Justin Reed. The 6’8″
rookie from Mississippi has played in just two games this season.
