    C's recall Fab Melo!

    The move is likely medical treatment related, but who, other than DA and Doc, really knows!

    Celtics recall Melo from D-League January, 2, 2013 JAN 2 11:57 AM ET By Chris Forsberg |

    The Boston Celtics recalled Fab Melo from the Maine Red Claws of the D-League on Wednesday.

    The move is likely procedural as Melo sustained a mild concussion and sat out Maine's last game on Monday. In order to be treated by the team's training staff, Melo must be formally recalled to the parent club. 

    In need of big-man depth after Chris Wilcox suffered a thumb injury last month, the team elected to sign Jarvis Varnado out of the D-League. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has said he doesn't want to stunt Melo's development by bringing him up too soon. 

    Melo, a 7-foot center tabbed with the 22nd pick in June's draft, has appeared in 12 games for the Red Claws this season averaging 10.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.8 blocks per game. Melo came on strong at the end of December, posting a triple double against Erie with 15 point, 16 rebound and a D-League record 14 blocks on Dec. 22, then followed that up with a 32-point, 9-rebound, 9-block effort against Idaho. 

    The Celtics recalled Melo in December in order to be treated for a quadriceps issue. He was quickly returned to Maine.
