According to Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, Turkish international center will eventually miss games due to his old shoulder injury.

Erden was injured in the summer and played in the World Championship being injured and did not get much rest, as he has hardly sat out of any games so far in NBA.

But according to his coach things will take a turn to the worse soon.

“There’s going to be a point when Semih can’t play. I don’t know that, but I believe that. I just think that with the shoulders, there’s a point where it’s going to come out and then he’s not going to be able to play.” said Rivers before concluding that Erden will need a surgery if he is to be fully fit again.
