Celtics' Al Horford: Just misses double-double Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford scored 17 points (5-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding nine rebounds, three assists and a block in 36 minutes during Friday's 102-92 win over the 76ers.

The Celtics' offense is still trying to find its way with Kyrie Irving at the helm, but Horford is providing a valuable stabilizing presence in the frontcourt while that happens. Expect him to continue serving as both a secondary scoring and distributing option going forward after he averaged a career-high 5.0 assists per game last season, his first campaign in Boston.

Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Drops game-high 21 in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving scored 21 points (7-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Friday's 102-92 win over the 76ers.

The former Cav is still trying to gel with the rest of the Celtics' roster, a job made harder by Gordon Hayward's gruesome ankle injury as well as less serious issues for Marcus Morris (knee) and Marcus Smart (ankle), but Irving has at least made up in volume scoring what he's lacked in efficiency so far. Expect the club to continue relying heavily on its point guard to keep the offensive motor running until it gets healthier.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Officially ruled out vs. Sixers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the 76ers, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

Smart's absence doesn't come as a shock, as the guard was considered doubtful to play Friday morning after he missed shootaround. Coach Brad Stevens has elected to go with a bigger starting lineup in Smart's absence, starting Aron Baynes at center, but Terry Rozier should see some extended minutes off the bench still. Smart's next opportunity to play will be Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Celtics' Aron Baynes: Starting at center vs. Sixers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baynes will start at center in Friday's game against the 76ers.

With Marcus Smart (ankle) out, coach Brad Stevens has elected to go bigger with his starting five, rather than staying small. It's likely that Stevens sticks with a bigger lineup for much of Friday night to matchup with the size of the 76ers, especially given the injuries the team is currently dealing with on the wing. The lineup will also give Stevens an opportunity to experiment with Al Horford playing more minutes at power forward.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Brad Stevens said Smart (ankle) is unlikely to play in Friday's game against the 76ers.

The severity of Smart's injury is currently unknown, but with the Celtics playing their third game this week already, holding him out of Friday's contest isn't too much of a surprise. In Smart's absence, Terry Rozier could get the start in the backcourt but will likely see extended minutes regardless, with rookie Semi Ojeleye also potentially seeing added minutes Friday. Smart's next opportunity to return won't be until Tuesday, so he'll have plenty of time to nurse the injury.
