Jay Scrubb: Let go by Boston
Scrubb (knee) was waived by the Celtics on Sunday.

The 23-year-old Scrubb had appeared in 24 regular-season NBA games across his first three professional seasons.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jay Scrubb: Suffers torn ACL at practice
The Celtics confirmed Sunday that Scrubb (knee) suffered a torn ACL at practice Saturday, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.

Magic's Jay Scrubb: Limited action in Year 3
Scrubb finished his third season averaging 6.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 15.5 minutes per game across two contests.

Scrubb tallied 24 points (10-21 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 28 minutes during Saturday's 133-121 win over the Iowa Wolves.
Scrubb came off Lakeland's bench yet again Saturday and served as the team's leading scorer in the contest. Although the 22-year-old's final stat line looks appealing at first glance, he missed eight out of his nine three-point tries, turned the ball over a team-high four times and committed the most fouls out of anyone in the matchup. Scrubb now concludes the G League regular season having averaged 22.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per outing across 45 appearances, and he could receive opportunities with Orlando throughout their final stretch of upcoming games....

Scrubb recorded 26 points (9-18 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 33 minutes during Sunday's 110-98 win over the Gold.
Unsurprisingly, Scrubb once again led both teams with his scoring efforts Sunday, but he uncharacteristically shot just 14.3 percent from beyond the arc in the contest.

Scrubb has now totaled 89 points throughout Lakeland's last three contests, and he once again led his team in both scoring and assists this past weekend. The 22-year-old appears to have found his stride as January winds down, and he'll presumably continue operating as the G League Magic's top performer for the time being.... See More ... See Less

Jay Scrubb: Collects double-double Tuesday
Scrubb registered 20 points (6-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, one steal and one block across 35 minutes during Tuesday's 104-100 win over the Skyforce.
