Shane Larkin (shoulder) out for Game 5 and the foreseeable future

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

Brad Stevens told reporters Wednesday ahead of Game 5 that Shane Larkin is out for tonight’s game and for the foreseeable future.

Larkin injured his shoulder in the first half of Game 4 after running into a screen from Joel Embiid. He immediately went to the locker room and did not return to the game.

Stevens and the Celtics will now have to deal with another injury to their main rotation. Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart are the remaining ball handlers on the roster, so Brad Stevens might have to change the starting lineup around.

The Celtics and Sixers tip off at 8 p.m. EST at TD Garden for Game 5 as Boston looks to close out the series.
