Warriors hire Rick Celebrini as director of sports medicine and performance

The Warriors have hired Dr. Rick Celebrini as the team’s director of sports medicine and performance, the team announced Wednesday.

The New York Times was first to report the news.

Celebrini replaces Chelsea Lane, who left Golden State last month after three seasons to take a similar position with the Atlanta Hawks. Celebrini has been the head of sports medicine and science for Major League Soccer’s Vancouver Whitecaps since February 2012.

“Rick is a world-class physiotherapist and will play a vital role in helping to sustain the performance level of our players,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said in a news release.
