Mandatory Credit: Greg Bartram-USA TODAY SportsThe Celtics already have their fair share of issues coming into the 2013-14 season, so Jared Sullinger's arrest won't make things any better.

Sullinger was arrested over the weekend following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend in Waltham, MA.

Last year, Sullinger missed most of the season with a back injury. The Celtics are counting on him to come back strong this year and be a key member of their rotation.

If these charges stick and Sullinger misses time, his future with the Celtics (and in the NBA in general) could be in jeopardy.
