Celtics coach Brad Stevens announced on Monday that rookie Tremont Waters suffered a concussion last week and has not cleared concussion protocol yet.
Though it is still unknown how Waters suffered the concussion, Stevens says the Celtics guard is on the back-end of concussion protocol.
"Tremont has a concussion from three or four days ago, so he's at the latter stages of concussion protocol with his stuff, but he hasn't been cleared," Stevens told reporters on his video conference call. [NBC Sports Boston]
