The Celtics’ roster will be thin again as they go for three in a row against Atlanta

NBA: New York Knicks at Boston Celtics Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

As the Boston Celtics get set to go for three straight wins, four players are listed on the injury report.

Marcus Morris is ruled out after falling on his side after a dunk Wednesday, while Kyrie Irving (quad) and Shane Larkin (knee) are also out. Marcus Smart continues to sit with a right hand laceration.

Morris is listed with a bruised left hip, but if you ask him it wasn’t his hip that he fell on.

With those four players out, the Celtics will only have 10 active players Friday against Atlanta. Terry Rozier will seemingly get his second straight start at point guard after recording a triple-double in his first start against New York.

The Celtics signed Greg Monroe today but he won’t be available until Sunday at the earliest, which doesn’t mean he’ll play then either. With the upcoming week of opponents the Celtics are set to face(TOR, WAS, CLE) it will be important for Boston to get themselves right before that stretch.
