|Payton Pritchard: Status iffy for Summer League final|
Pritchard’s status remains clouded for Tuesday’s Summer League championship game against Portland, MassLive.com reports.
The Scoop: It appears as though Pritchard is pushing to play in Tuesday's finale, but the Celtics would prefer the second-year guard sit out for precautionary reasons. Pritchard, himself, tweeted Sunday night that he plans to suit up, but Celtics Summer League head coach Joe Mazzulla said Pritchard did not take part in Monday's practice. "I know everyone saw what he tweeted and we're in discussions about whether it makes sense for him to come back," Mazzulla said Monday afternoon. "We're still communicating and working through that. As a coach obviously you want him there, I think we'll know more in the morning." Pritchard was excused from the Celtics' previous Summer League game due to a prior commitment, but in three appearances in Las Vegas, he's averaged 20.3 points and 8.7 assists per game.
