Top Celtics News

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Probable for Wednesday

    Horford is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks due to left knee soreness.

    Horford is a surprise addition to the injury report for Wednesday's game, but it doesn't look like it is anything serious given his probable tag. Horford's status will still need to be confirmed prior to tip-off Wednesday, but it would be a surprise if the big man wasn't a full go against New York.

  • Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Struggles off bench in loss

    Hayward scored four points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, four assists and a steal in 31 minutes off the bench during Monday's 117-112 loss to the Hornets.

    Moving Hayward to the second unit did little to provide him with a spark, as he tied his season low in scoring while failing to reach double digits in points for the sixth time in the last nine games. The 28-year-old is too talented to remain in this slump all season, but after missing basically all of 2017-18, it's clear that Hayward needs more time to get back up to speed after his devastating leg injury.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Scores season-high 14 in loss

    Smart scored 14 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two assists, two steals and a rebound in 26 minutes off the bench during Monday's 117-112 loss to the Hornets.

    It was only the second time this season the guard has scored in double digits, with Monday's 14 points being a season high, while the four made three-pointers also tied his season best. Boston's bench is in flux at the moment with Gordon Hayward moving out of the starting five, but more consistent production from Smart would help the underachieving Celtics find some balance in their offense.

  • Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Drops team-high 27 in loss

    Irving scored 27 points (12-25 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 11 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 117-112 loss to the Hornets.

    It's Irving's second double-double of the season. both of which have come in the last three games, and his 10th time scoring 20 or more points in 16 contests. The point guard has also been a terror on the defensive end, grabbing multiple steals in seven straight to push his average up to a career-high 1.7 per game.

  • Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Moves to bench

    Hayward will come off the bench Monday against the Hornets, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Hayward has struggled to get going so far this season, averaging just 10.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists across 26.7 minutes per game, so he'll retreat to the bench as the Celtics look to shake things up. Aron Baynes will enter the starting lineup in place of Hayward, who should still play a significant role off the bench.

  • Celtics' Aron Baynes: Gets start Monday

    Baynes will start in place of Gordon Hayward on Monday against the Hornets, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Baynes will get the spot start as coach Brad Stevens seeks to mix it up a bit. Hayward has been stiff so far this year, so the move is likely aimed at giving him an opportunity to get going against the Hornets substitutes rather than a long-term lineup change.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Has little impact Saturday

    Horford finished with nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one steal in 21 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 loss to the Jazz.

    Horford received the full Gobert experience Saturday, providing little impact on either end of the floor. The Celtics came out flat in this one, not surprising after their overtime victory only 24 hours prior. Horford somewhat salvaged his line with some defensive numbers but all-in-all was mediocre at best.

  • Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Forgettable effort Saturday

    Brown had just three points (1-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), three rebounds, and one assist in 24 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 loss to Utah.

    Brown really stunk it up Saturday, hitting just 1-of-9 shot attempts to finish with three points. Brown has been disappointing this season and has suffered from the Celtics getting healthy players back. He offers very little outside of scoring and is more of a deep league guy at this stage.

  • Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Has 20 points in loss Saturday

    Irving managed 20 points (8-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 30 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 loss to the Jazz.

    After exploding for 43 points only 24 hours earlier, Irving and the Celtics were completely outplayed by a strong Jazz outfit. The entire starting lineup came out flat in this one and there is not really a lot to gauge from the performances of any of them. This game aside, Irving has been trending up in a hurry. He will get the night off before traveling to Charlotte to face Kemba Walker and the Hornets.

  • Celtics' Gordon Hayward: No minutes limit Saturday

    Hayward, who played 39 minutes Friday against the Raptors, does not have a minutes limit for the second half of a back-to-back Saturday against the Jazz, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    The Celtics have been relatively cautious with Hayward up until recently. Friday's 39 minutes were a season high, and he's played at least 29 minutes in each of the past three games. It seems that Hayward may be a full-go moving forward.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Drops 21 in OT win over Raptors

    Tatum scored 21 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding seven rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block in 38 minutes during Friday's 123-116 overtime win over the Raptors.

    It's the third time in the last four games, and the sixth time this season, Tatum has struck for 20 or more points. The 20-year-old has taken a step backwards with his shooting percentage, in part because he's taken more shots from three-point range, but otherwise he's improved his numbers nearly across the board from his already impressive debut campaign.
