Jaylen Brown probable, Shane Larkin questionable, Marcus Morris out against Bulls

The Celtics are inching their way back to getting to full strength after hellish stretch of games

NBA: Boston Celtics at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics gave an injury update ahead of their home game against the Chicago Bulls Saturday night.

Jaylen Brown and Shane Larkin both missed Thursday’s loss in New York against the Knicks as the Celtics were playing on the second night of a back-to-back, as well as their eighth game in the last 12 days. Getting at least Brown back will do wonders for this team since they will gain another starter.

Marcus Morris getting back for a Christmas day showdown against the Washington Wizards and his brother Markieff should help Boston’s second unit, which has struggled to score in Morris’ absence.

The Bulls have won seven of their last eight games since Nikola Mirotic returned and Kris Dunn took the reigns as the primary playmaker. The Bulls already defeated the Celtics this season by 23 points, and Boston has been struggling lately playing more games than any team in the NBA.

The Celtics and Bulls tip off at 7:30 EST in TD Garden.
