James Young Fails to Inform Celtics of Injury

The first round pick from Kentucky (James Young) tweaked his left hamstring before the Celtics’ preseason opener on Monday, and then he did something very rookie-like.

He didn’t tell anybody.

So an injury that may have been headed off at the pass was exacerbated when he played 20 minutes against the 76ers.

“We had no idea,” said Stevens. “In fact, he didn’t say anything until Tuesday. So I don’t know if it was something that was wearing on him, but none of us knew.

“Hopefully (it’s) a good lesson for him and us. He needs to communicate that ASAP if he thinks something is not feeling right.”
