Celtics' Marcus Morris: Matches team high with 14 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris recorded 14 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during an 89-80 loss to the 76ers on Thursday.

Morris played well off the bench in the loss, as the 14 points matched a team high and he knocked down a few triples. Despite the decent game, Morris' value is mostly limited to points, three-pointers and rebounds. Over the last three games, he's averaging 15.0 points on 47.1 percent shooting, 7.3 rebounds and 2.0 three-pointers per game.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart provided 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes during an 89-80 loss to the 76ers on Thursday.

Smart received the start with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) sidelined and received 34 minutes. He also scored in double figures for the fifth time in the last six outings. Smart has played decently lately, with averages of 12.6 points on 42.9 percent shooting, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game across his last five games.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Will play, start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (illness) has been cleared to play and will start at point guard in Thursday's matchup with the 76ers, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

Smart dealt with an illness on Wednesday, but with another night off for rest, he feels better and will take the court as usual. The Celtics are set to be without Kyrie Irving (shoulder), so Smart should have added ball-handling responsibility and could see a slight uptick in his overall workload. That said, Smart has already averaged 30.4 minutes per game this season, so it will likely only be a few extra minutes. Terry Rozier is also a candidate to see extended run, though it will be Smart that picks up the start in Irving's place.

Celtics' Guerschon Yabusele: Out Thursday vs. Sixers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yabusele (illness) will not play during Thursday's game against the 76ers, voice of the Celtics Sean Grande reports.

Yabusele is apparently still feeling too ill to participate Thursday. He hasn't been a consistent part of Boston's rotation lately, so his absence shouldn't cause much of a shakeup.

Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (shoulder) will be held out of Thursday's contest against the 76ers, voice of the Boston Celtics Sean Grande reports.

Irving was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a sore left shoulder, which is still giving him enough discomfort to keep him from participating in Thursday's tilt. With his absence, Terry Rozier will likely see an expanded role. In Irving's most recent absence Dec. 11 against Chicago, Rozier played 28 minutes, posting 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five assists and three rebounds.
