Tacko Fall will miss the home opener of the Boston Celtics against the Toronto Raptors on Friday (25/10), due to concussion.

Per a report from, the 7-foot-5 center was placed in concussion protocol after banging his head while washing his hands, after a workout at the Celtics practice facility last Friday.

Fall missed Boston’s season-opening 107-93 defeat by the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, as he had entered the league’s concussion protocol two days earlier after experiencing delayed symptoms.

NBA protocol requires a player to be without any concussion symptoms at rest. A doctor will then evaluate the player and put him through a “return-to-participation” exertion protocol before a team doctor and NBA’s concussion program director clear him.
