#Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was greeted by a loud ovation at today's Stay in School event presented by the Arbella Insurance Foundation. Sullinger and guard Phil Pressey teamed up to highlight the importance of education at the Eliot School. #greenrunsdeep #NBAgiveBIG #BOS
Lee says he plans to play tomorrow night: "I'm going to shoot for it. It's up to coach if he puts me out there or not."
Lee was among the last players left shooting today after practice. Calls his knee problem a "tissue issue" after getting negative MRIs.
Bass on blocking more shots: "That's what I do man! (Laughs) I'm joking. But I go into every game with a defensive mindset."
Stevens on team's progress so far: "I've never had a team in November or December that you're excited about where you are (currently)."
Stevens noted that Rajon Rondo did "some practice" today but no more than he's done of late. There's still no timetable on a return for him.
Stevens: "Our defense didn't allow us to stay in that game (Sat vs Milwaukee). Credit Milwaukee. They did a nice job on both ends."
Stevens: "Courtney went full in practice today. Kelly is out, I don't know the exact time but it's still a significant sprain."
Sully on his physical style: "I'm just playing basketball. I can't help it that I'm so big and guys bounce off of me the way they do."
Sully on the C's problems vs. Milwaukee: "They break our rhythm very well. They run. They've got gazelles out there."
Brooks on his lack of playing time: "I'm extremely confident. I believe in myself. I'm just trying to play team ball and pick my spots."
Post-practice stretching is complete. Interviews should start shortly. pic.twitter.com/Shl60RPdMq
Practice is winding down in Waltham. Stay tuned for updates from Coach Stevens and the players shortly.

Stevens: "The great teams I've ever been on had someone playing a critical role in January and February that weren't earlier in the season."
Stevens on Sullinger's 3-pt shot: "You can always expand your game... He's a guy who looks like an obvious candidate to expand his range."
Brad Stevens on the Cavaliers: "They're going through a transition because they have a new head coach as well, but they're also very young."
