For the past three seasons, Chelsea Lane was an unsung hero for the Warriors. Lane didn't make headlines, but she was a big free agency loss for the champs.
Lane left the Warriors in July to take a similar position in Atlanta.
Nearly one month later, the Warriors are hiring Lane's replacement. The Warriors are finalizing a deal with physiotherapist Rick Celebrini to lead the Warriors' medical staff.
Confirmed: Warriors have selected Rick Celebrini to lead the sports medicine/physical performance department. He replaces Chelsea Lane, who last month joined the Hawks to remake those aspects in Atlanta.— Monte Poole (@MontePooleNBCS) August 8, 2018
Celebrini is currently the head of sports medicine and science for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer. In his playing days, Celebrini played for the Canadian U-20 national team and also played professionally for the Vancouver 86ers.
The New York Times was first to report the news.
