Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley is not expected to play in either of the team's next two games due to lingering pain from a hip bruise, while starting backcourt partner Isaiah Thomas sat out Tuesday's practice due to a small sprain in his left thumb but is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Detroit Pistons.

Marcus Smart is back and seems to be playing well, but it isn't clear if he'll be added to the starting lineup or not.

It is unclear if Turner will get the call again, or whether Stevens will turn to Marcus Smart who was also impactful in Boston’s win on Monday which snapped a two-game losing streak. Stevens said he’ll make a final decision on who will be in the starting lineup on Wednesday.
