Update: Sullinger (back) underwent successful lumbar disc surgery Friday. He will miss the remainder of the season.
Recommendation: Sullinger's history of back issues raised red flags for many teams on draft night, and those fears were realized Friday. While the 20-year-old's recent back ailment was initially thought to be minor, it was later determined he needed season-ending surgery. Sullinger's expected to be ready for training camp, but Brandon Bass will now take the reins as starting power forward for Boston.
