The wait is over, we finally know the real heights and weights of Celtics players.

As expected, center Tacko Fall is the tallest player on the team, standing at 7-foot-5. But that’s actually two inches shorter than his draft listing (7-foot-7).

In addition to being the team’s tallest player, Fall is also the Celtics’ heaviest player. He weighs 310 pounds.

Fall isn’t the only Celtics center that “shrunk.” Robert Williams’ height went from 6-foot-10 to 6-foot-8.

Rookie center Vincent Poirier is the second-tallest Celtic. He is 7-feet tall.

The change in heights and weights listings comes after the NBA sent a notice to teams last month requiring them to certify and submit each player’s height and age within the first week of training camp.

New Celtics star Kemba Walker just cracked the 6-foot mark, standing at exactly 6-feet tall. He was listed at 6-foot-1 before.

Jayson Tatum’s height didn’t change. He is still listed at 6-foot-8.

Rookie Tremont Waters is the smallest Celtic. Waters is 5-foot-10 and weighs 175 pounds.
