Daniel Theis (hamstring) out vs Hornets

The Celtics will be short one of their bigs as they go for four wins in a row

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Boston Celtics Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics announced Wednesday that Daniel Theis will miss the team’s home game against the Charlotte Hornets with a right hamstring soreness.

Theis was playing stellar basketball coming out of the All Star break, averaging around 12 points and seven rebounds in over 21 minutes per game. His absence should open the door for the struggling Greg Monroe to get some quality minutes off the bench behind Aron Baynes.

The Celtics and Hornets tip off at 7:30 p.m. EST in TD Garden as Boston goes for its fourth win in a row.
