As was expected since they were brought into training camp, the Celtics waived Rob Kurz and Micah Downs. Downs was impressive in spurts in a couple of preseason games. He averaged 3.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8.9 minutes per game over 7 games. Kurz averaged 1.7 points and 1.8 rebounds in 8.3 minutes per game over 6 games. It was a numbers game right from the beginning and either of them making the team was a very long longshot.
The roster is now at 15 players and should stay there at least for the first half of the season.
