Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger will miss the remainder of the season with a left metatarsal stress fracture in his left foot.
The team announced the decision Sunday following further medical evaluation at the New England Baptist Hospital.
Sullinger said he felt some discomfort in the foot last week after a win over the Atlanta Hawks on Feb. 11.
After the All-Star break, Sullinger removed himself from practice in Sacramento on Wednesday. Then team trainer Ed Lacerte took him for the initial tests Thursday that revealed the foot injury.
Sullinger was averaging 14.4 points and 8.1 rebounds in 51 games this season.
