He’s up, he’s down, he’s back up again.

Hours before they face the Denver Nuggets at TD Garden Sunday, the Celtics recalled rookie center Fab Melo from their NBDL team, the Maine Red Claws.

Melo played one game with Maine during his most recent assignment, and he had 6 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assist in about 23 minutes against the Bakersfield Jam Friday.

Melo is averaging 11.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.45 blocks in 27.4 minutes per game in his 20 contests with Maine this season.

The former Syracuse player has played in two games for the Celtics this season, earning a total of 2 points, a steal and a block in eight minutes of action.
