Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown, Semi Ojeleye all out vs Hornets

The Celtics will certainly be shorthanded on the wing Wednesday as their brutal schedule continues

NBA: Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics announced Wednesday that Jaylen Brown and Semi Ojeleye were officially ruled out of the team’s road game in Charlotte.

Morris is expected to return tomorrow for the second half of Boston’s back-to-back against the Houston Rockets as he continues to rehab his left knee. Jaylen Brown said that he possibly strained some ligaments in his MCL after a collision with Markieff Morris Monday night, and Marcus Smart will start in his place tonight.

Ojeleye hurt his back after taking a hard fall against Chicago last Saturday following a failed dunk attempt. This will be the rookie’s second missed game following the injury.

The Celtics tip off in Charlotte against the Hornets at 7 p.m. EST as they continue to play through a brutal stretch of games in the month of December.
