Terry Rozier (ankle) and Shane Larkin (illness) out for Celtics-Bucks

Point Tatum?

NBA: Boston Celtics at Sacramento Kings Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics announced Tuesday that both Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin will miss the team’s road game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Rozier and Brad Stevens told reporters that the third year guard’s ankle felt better today than a few days ago, but I guess it didn’t feel good enough to play after shoot-around.

Larkin was released from the hospital on Monday after experiencing flu-like symptoms. Stevens told reporters that he is definitely not available for the Bucks game, but will travel with the Celtics to Toronto for their game tomorrow night.

It is unclear that either will play against the Raptors, but due to Irving and Smart’s current ailments, Boston’s only available point guard is Kadeem Allen. Allen has only played in 12 games this season while on a two-way contract, so it is more likely that Stevens has Jayson Tatum or Al Horford step in to take the primary ball handler role.

The Celtics and Bucks tip off at 8 p.m. EST in Milwaukee as the ailing Celtics go for their seventh win in a row.
