Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Starts at center Monday

Zeller will start at center for Monday's game against the Heat, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

Al Horford is missing the game to tend to the birth of his child and despite Kelly Olynyk originally being the expected starter in his place, the Celtics will instead go with Zeller to get a bigger guy across from Hassan Whiteside. Zeller has seen single-digit minutes in each of his last four games, but should see a significant boost in playing time while running with the top overall unit.
