Boston made the announcement on Sunday.

Sullinger was sent back to Boston on Thursday to have his foot examined. Doctors diagnosed him with a metatarsal stress fracture.

Sullinger is the leading scorer and rebounder on the Celtics roster this season, with 14.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. He is in his third season with Boston since being selected from Ohio State in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Perkins agrees to sign with Cavaliers

CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers are adding some inside muscle and depth.

Former Oklahoma City forward Kendrick Perkins has agreed to sign with the Cavs, a person familiar with his decision told The Associated Press on Saturday. Perkins, who won a title with the Boston Celtics in 2008, will sign with the Cavs as early as Monday said the person who spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because the team has not made the signing official.

Perkins was waived earlier Saturday by the Utah Jazz, who acquired him in a deal from the Thunder before the trading deadline. Although he has not yet joined the Cavs, Perkins posted a message on Twitter saying he’s excited to soon be playing with superstar LeBron James.

Perkins wrote: “It’s a Blessing for me to have another opportunity to join a Great Organization @cavs! Can’t wait to play with Greatness @KingJames!#TheLand.
