Jared Sullinger's Back Medically Red Flagged?


NBA Draft insider Chad Ford is reporting Jared Sullinger has been medically red flagged by NBA doctors. Satch Sullinger, Jared's father and former long time successful Central Ohio high school basketball coach, told Andy Katz "He had a bulging area that was due to his hamstring and quads being so tight. It pulled on his hip flexor and he's been taking care of it to loosen it. You can call it a red flag if you want. But it's tight hamstring and tight quads. He's been to doctors, he's doing yoga and deep tissue massage. The flexibility is helping take the pressure off the area. We've got nothing to hide. At this stage it's all about what they can't do. Jared is a skilled player. A two-time All-American. He can play." It will be interesting to see if Sullinger free falls comes draft day or if this is a calculated move by another team to get Sullinger down within their reach. Remember, Spurs forward DeJuan Blair was medically written off repeatedly as well.
