The Celtics’ injury report is quite the laundry list

NBA: Boston Celtics at Minnesota Timberwolves Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics announced Tuesday that Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and Kyrie Irving are out for Wednesday’s game against the Washington Wizards. Al Horford is listed as questionable.

This comes after a Monday that saw Daniel Theis lost for the season, and left Smart’s availability for the rest of the year up in the air. According to a report from Mark Murphy, the Celtics still have no idea whether Smart will return this season or not. Smart plans to get a second opinion on his thumb that should provide further information.

Horford missed Sunday’s loss due to an illness, so getting him back in the starting lineup should help ease the blow of playing without three key pieces.

Boston’s starting lineup should be an interesting sight that will probably contain Terry Rozier, Aron Baynes, Jayson Tatum and a number of different combinations of players if Horford’s out.

The Celtics and Wizards tip off Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST in TD Garden as the Celtics’ reserves hope to get the Celtics into the playoffs on a high note.
