The good news is, he was trying to get back in the game last night, but with a 20+ point lead, it wasn't necessary. Here's Doc this morning on WEEI:

"Don't know. That's going to be a day-to-day thing, maybe for a while. Guys, if you've had back problems and you start having spasms, sometimes you wake up in the morning and they're gone and sometimes they get worse. So I just think that's something we have to wait and see."

Of course, the bad news is that the injury that red-flagged him during the draft has finally caught up with him. Here's how his dad addressed the bulging disc issue after NBA team doctors tested him at the combine:

Jared Sullinger's back a concern

"He had a bulging area that was due to his hamstring and quads being so tight," Satch Sullinger told ESPN.com senior college basketball writer Andy Katz in a phone call Monday afternoon. "It pulled on his hip flexor and he's been taking care of it to loosen it. You can call it a red flag if you want. But it's tight hamstring and tight quads. He's been to doctors, he's doing yoga and deep tissue massage. The flexibility is helping take the pressure off the area.

"We've got nothing to hide. At this stage it's all about what they can't do. Jared is a skilled player. A two-time All-American. He can play."
