Celtics Lose Summer League Game To Pacers, James Young To Head/Neck Injuries

Boston Celtics rookie guard James Young is suffering from concussion-like symptoms and won’t play in this week’s NBA Summer League in Orlando, Fla.

Young, the 17th overall pick in last month’s NBA draft, didn’t play in Monday’s summer league game against the Indiana Pacers, which the Celtics lost 96-77.

Second-year forward Kelly Olynyk led the way with 15 points and was one of five Celtics players to score in double digits. At one point, the Pacers went on a 32-6 run.

“We’ve got talented players. … Shots are going to fall some nights and not fall other nights,” rookie guard Marcus Smart, the Celtics’ No. 6 pick, said after Monday’s loss. “Tonight they just didn’t fall.”

The Celtics will resume summer league action Wednesday against the Detroit Pistons.
