Celtics Jared Sullinger trying to keep weight off Celtics


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Celtics forward Jared Sullinger admits he came to training camp last year overweight, but said he's working to maintain a proper weight, reports ESPN.com.

"People say, 'Hire a nutritionist,' but it's not that simple," he said. "What people don't understand is after a game, you get hungry. I stay up late, I'm not falling asleep and I want to eat. The hardest calories to burn off are those late-night calories."

Sullinger has been battling weight issues for most of his life, but he hopes to control it moving forward for the betterment of his career.

"Do you think I want to be like this? I don't,'' Sullinger said. "My genetics aren't the same as your genetics. Some people can drop 10 pounds in a week. Some can drop 10 pounds in three weeks. My body doesn't work like that. But that doesn't matter now, because I've got to figure out a way to do this. It's going to be hard -- it has always been hard -- but I have to take extra care. At the same time, there are obstacles that still occur."


Ainge: Jared Sullinger did not meet Celtics' conditioning goals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Celtics president Danny Ainge had some harsh comments on Jared Sullinger's conditioning in an interview on 98.5 FM The Sports Hub in Boston on Thursday, per WEEI.com.

Sullinger said Wednesday that he takes full blame for suffering a season-ending stress fracture in his left foot, and he promises to get in better shape moving forward. Ainge noted Thursday that he has addressed the Sullinger's conditioning issues "many, many times," and was not impressed by the results this season.

"All of our players have met conditioning, body fat, goals set by trainers, and Jared has not met them," Ainge said.

Sullinger was lost for the season on Sunday due to the injury, though at this point he will not require corrective surgery. He averaged 14.4 points and 8.1 rebounds in 51 games while shooting 44.7 percent from the field.
