Poirier (finger) scored two points (0-3 FG, 2-2 FT) and turned the ball over once over his five minutes of playing time Monday in the Celtics' 113-101 win over the Bulls. Cleared to play again after being sidelined for the past month following surgery to repair a fractured pinkie finger, Poirier's only action came in garbage time. Even with Daniel Theis (knee) sitting out Monday and Robert Williams (hip) out for the foreseeable future, Poirier doesn't look like he'll be in store for a regular role in the Celtics' center rotation.
Poirier (finger) will be available for Monday's game against Chicago. After experiencing no issues during the Celtics' morning shootaround, Poirier will be available to play for the first time since mid-December after undergoing surgery to address a fractured pinkie finger. With usual starting center Daniel Theis out with a sore left knee, Poirier could work as the understudy to Enes Kanter in his first game back.
Poirier (finger) is questionable for Monday's contest against the Bulls. Poirier has missed the last 14 games while recovering from right finger surgery. If he's able to make it back Monday, the rookie stands to play a minor role in the Celtics' rotation.
Poirier (finger) is progressing well and could make a return to action next week, according to coach Brad Stevens, A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports. Assuming the team makes him available, Poirier, who's missed the past 14 games due to right finger surgery, will have several opportunities to return this upcoming week, with Boston having four games on the schedule. If he's able to make it back, his return isn't expected to make too much of an impact on the Celtics' rotation -- prior to his absence, the rookie center was averaging just 4.9 minutes per contest.
Coach Brad Stevens said Poirier is on schedule with his recovery from finger surgery, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. Poirier underwent surgery to address a fractured right pinkie finger in mid-December and was handed a 4-to-6-week recovery timeline, putting his estimated return date around the second half of January.
