Boston Celtics rookie guard Terry Rozier had his left knee drained after experiencing swelling last week and will miss both of the team’s exhibition games this week in New York.

Rozier, the 16th overall pick in June’s draft, said he initially tweaked the knee near the start of training camp chasing a loose ball. He didn’t tell the team’s medical staff, believing the injury to be minor, but swelling became an issue overseas. “I thought I could just get through it. But lesson learned from that,” Rozier said. “But it’s nothing serious. It just has me off my feet right now.”
