The Maine Red Claws announced Thursday that Stephane Lasme, a final camp cut of the Boston Celtics and an affiliated player, and made his 2010-11 regular-season debut Thursday night after recovering from a fractured foot in the team's only preseason game. Expected to be an integral part of the Red Claws' plans this season and an NBA call-up candidate, Lasme, who joined the Red Claws in training camp out of the Boston Celtics camp as one of three Affiliated Players, fractured his foot just 2 minutes into the team's lone preseason game and was not expected to return this season.
In his debut on Thursday, Lasme played 16 minutes and had three points and three rebounds in a 118-105 loss to Erie.
