Baynes (hand) will not be on a minutes restriction for his return Wednesday against the Raptors, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.

Baynes (hand) will be available to play in Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. Baynes, who has been inactive with a broken left hand since Dec. 20, will presumably make his awaited return to action Wednesday versus Toronto.

Baynes (hand) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports. Baynes has been out since Dec. 19 after undergoing surgery on his left hand, but the big man has rehabbed efficiently and could make his return Wednesday. His availability will likely depend on how he feels in warmups, and even if he is given the green light, the Celtics figure to monitor Baynes' minutes closely given a substantial absence.
Coach Brad Stevens said Baynes (hand) will be evaluated by a doctor in Boston on Tuesday, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports. Baynes hasn't played since Dec. 19 due to a broken right hand, but he's hoping to receive clearance to return later in the week during Tuesday's follow-up appointment. The Celtics play against the Raptors on Wednesday before kicking off a back-to-back set against the Grizzlies and Hawks on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Look for Baynes' status to clear up following Tuesday's evaluation. In the meantime, Al Horford and Daniel Theis should continue to see the bulk of minutes at center until Baynes is healthy.
Baynes (hand) will be re-evaluated next week, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. Baynes has missed the last eight games while recovering from right hand surgery, and it sounds like he'll miss at least five more contests. The big man saw a doctor Monday, who determined that Baynes could return to game action by the end of next week if everything goes as planned. An updated timetable for his return should emerge after he's re-evaluated next week. In the meantime, Daniel Theis -- and potentially Robert Williams, now that he's healthy -- should benefit from increased opportunities until Baynes is ready to return.
