He might be injured, but Tacko Fall is with the Celtics on the road this weekend.
Boston is in New York to face the Brooklyn Nets on Friday before heading to Madison Square Garden on Sunday for a matchup with the Knicks. Fall, who suffered a knee injury Monday with the Maine Red Claws, is with the team receiving treatment, per MassLive’s Tom Westerholm.
The 7-foot-5 center told Westerholm his ailment is “a little sprain” and expects to be out “another week or so.”

Fall is on a two-way deal, meaning he can spend no more than 45 days with the Celtics during the season. There is an exception in this case, however.
Two-way players are allowed to rehab with the NBA club when injured without having it count toward their 45-day tally. As long as Fall doesn’t participate in team activities such as practice, film, one-on-one coach work, etc., his count will remain where it was when he was injured Monday with the Red Claws.
The Celtics and Knicks tip-off Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
