Al Horford to return vs Sixers, Marcus Morris off minutes restriction

The Celtics will be at full strength for their London game against Philadelphia

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Boston Celtics Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics will have all their players—except Hayward—ready to go against the Philadelphia 76ers in London.

Al Horford missed the Celtics’ win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday after bumping into Karl-Anthony Towns Friday and injuring his left knee. He wore a brace and finished out that game, but sat out before the team went overseas. Having Horford back at full strength should be a relief for the team and its fans.

Marcus Morris seems to have hit a milestone in his recovery from a sore left knee he’s been dealing with since the preseason. Morris has played in 21 of the Celtics’ 43 games this season, and getting off a minutes restriction is a step in the right direction towards playing every night.

The Celtics and Sixers tip off in London on Thursday at 3 p.m. EST.
