Poirier was traded to the Thunder via the Celtics on Thursday in exchange for a protected 2021 second-round draft pick. The seven-footer appeared in 22 games with the Celtics in his rookie season, averaging just 1.9 points and 2.0 rebounds in 5.9 minutes per game. The front court appears crowded for the Thunder with Steven Adams and recent acquisition Al Horford at center, so Poirier could be a candidate to spend time in the G-League next season as well.
Poirier (personal) is not on the Celtics' injury report ahead of Tuesday's Game 1 against Miami. Poirier missed the latter portion of the Celtics' second-round series against Toronto while dealing with a personal matter, but he returned to practice Monday and will be available off the bench Tuesday night. However, Poirier has not been a member of the regular rotation, so he's unlikely to make an impact in this series.
Poirier (personal) will remain out for Monday's Game 5 against Toronto. The reserve big man is still tending to a personal matter, but as a non-regular in the rotation, his absence shouldn't have much of a fantasy impact.
Poirier (personal) will not play in Saturday's Game 4 against the Raptors. Poirier, who was also out for Game 3, has played just two minutes in the postseason, so his absence won't affect coach Brad Stevens' rotation. The majority of center minutes should continue to go to Daniel Theis and Robert Williams.
