As previously expected, the Celtics announced rookie Lester Hudson has been assigned to the Maine Red Claws (NBA Development League) on Tuesday.

‘€œHe’€™s on a very good team where it’€™s very difficult to get minutes, but that hasn’€™t sidetracked his work,’€ Doc Rivers told the Boston Herald prior to Monday’s Celtics-Grizzlies game. ‘€œWe’€™re going to send him down pretty soon to the NBDL for a week or so to get him some games, because I don’€™t like our young guys going these long stretches without playing games. And then we’€™re going to bring him back. I think that will help him.’€

Celtics forward Bill Walker was assigned to their D-League affiliate earlier in the season.
