The Boston Celtics announced today that they have recalled forward Kris Joseph from their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
Joseph, a 6’7 forward, averaged 25.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block in two games while on assignment.
Kris Joseph will be back in uniform with the C's tonight. The Celtics would have probably done this anyway with Rondo's suspension, but Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox's questionable statuses for tonight make this even more logical. Personally the only benefit I see in having Joseph in Maine is to keep him fresh. He already has a pretty developed game and I'd love to see him get some extended time backing up Pierce tonight. I think he has the potential to be the answer at the backup small forward position, which the Celtics have had a void at since they let Tony Allen leave.

WHO'S THE BOSS
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was asked for his reaction to the punishment handed down to the Spurs, and he was unfazed.
BOSTON — Jason Terry has had difficulty finding his niche so far in Boston, but no matter how inconsistent his scoring totals have been, the veteran guard has already made an impression on his new coach.
Terry dropped 17 points to lead all Celtics starters in Boston’s 96-78 victory over Portland on Friday. That came just one week after he was held to five points against Oklahoma...
Rajon Rondo has been suspended for two games, according to Celtics President Danny Ainge in his interview on WEEI. Rondo was ejected from Wednesday’s game against the Nets when he got in an altercation with Nets forward Kris Humphries after Humphries gave Kevin Garnett a hard foul. Humphries was also ejected.
The Boston Celtics (and more importantly Leandro Barbosa) need to step...
BOSTON — The Celtics’ offense will look a little different this weekend. While Rajon Rondo serves his two-game suspension for his role in an altercation with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries on Wednesday, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he will look to every available option to fill the hole left by his point guard’s absence.
“Everyone’s got to be the point guard,”...
The Boston Celtics met the Brooklyn Nets earlier tonight at the TD Garden arena, and things got wild. Kris Humphies "punched" if you will, Kevin Garnett in the face while he was going up for a shot. Celtics guard Rajon Rondo didn't like what he saw and went after Kris. The fight went into the crowd, but nothing really seemed to happen after that. Not nearly...
On Wednesday the Celtics lost to the Brooklyn Nets 95-83 on their home court, and Doc Rivers refused to mince words afterwards.
In the wake of a game that saw Rajon Rondo ejected (and his double-digit assist streak end), Rivers pointedly called the team “soft” in his postgame comments. Rivers even seemed to specifically refer to Rondo’s actions, saying “that stuff’s not...
On Wednesday night the Boston Celtics faced the streaking Brooklyn Nets at home. The Nets came into the TD Garden off a big win in their first battle of the NY boroughs and looked to make another statement against their Atlantic Division rival. Tempers flared, a fight broke out, and ejections ensued. Rajon Rondo, Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace were all ejected from the game...
The NBA will decide by tomorrow afternoon whether Rajon Rondo receives a suspension for his part in the "brawl" last night.

With the Nets up 51-35 in the first half of their game against the Celtics last night, tempers flared when Nets' Kris Humphries fouled Celtics' Kevin Garnett sending him crashing to the floor.
Rajon Rondo didn't take to kindly to Humphries' foul on his teammate and that's when a brawl broke out.
Boston head coach responded to the brawl saying the...
I am in the minority here that I have no problem with Rondo's decision to back up Kevin, who was just wacked in the face on a dirty cheap play. What I do have a problem with is that this escalated and the Nets walked away as winners since the trade off was Kris Humphries for Rajon Rondo, which ultimately costed Boston the game and more importantly, stopped the assist streak...
