Larkin unlikely to return after running into an Embiid screen

NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Shane Larkin was holding his left shoulder in pain after running into a screen by Joel Embiid in the first half of Game 4 on Monday. He immediately went to the locker room and is now questionable to return to the game according to the team.

Stevens will now have to go with Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart exclusively for point guard minutes, or let Al Horford or Jayson Tatum bring the ball up more.

Boston is up 3-0 in the second round series against Philadelphia and will go for the sweep to advance to their second straight Eastern Conference Finals.
