FAB MELO ACTIVATED FOR ORLANDO GAME

The Celtics are expected to activate their other rookie first-round pick, Fab Melo, to add an available body. With two open roster spots and Rajon Rondo lost for the season with an ACL tear, there's an open active spot for Melo to occupy, even as he recovers from a quadriceps injury that led to his recall from the D-League earlier this week.

Celtics' Melo active for first time this season

By Gary Washburn, Globe Staff

WALTHAM -- Center Fab Melo will be placed on the active list and available tonight for the Celtics matchup with the Orlando Magic.

Melo was recalled from NBADL Maine to rehabilitate a quadriceps injury but the club has decided to keep him on the active roster for the first time this season. Melo, one of the team's two first-round picks, has not played in an NBA game this season.

"That's the thing I've been working hard for, been looking forward to this time," he said after working out with assistant coach Jay Larranaga following shootaround. "I'm very excited and I want to be there and help the team."

Melo averaged 11.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.6 blocks in 19 games for the Red Claws.

Meanwhile, rookie Jared Sullinger was not present at Celtics' shootaround because of back spasms and it is uncertain whether he will play against Orlando. Sullinger, who has played in the first 45 games, left the win over Sacramento with 7:52 left in the first quarter because of back issues.

Now we know why. When I saw that he had been activated, I said that Sully would be out. Now he is gone for the year.
