Kanter out, Theis questionable against Milwaukee

Boston’s frontcourt continues to roll shorthanded.

The Boston Celtics will be missing part of their “Plan A” from this past offseason as they tip off against the team that eliminated them from the playoffs last spring – the Milwaukee Bucks.

Enes Kanter continues to make his way back slowly following his left knee contusion, but with it being so early in the season, caution is most definitely the best play. Theis injured his ankle against the Toronto Raptors, and after sitting out the next night against the New York Knicks, he may or may not make his return tomorrow.

Although Boston’s frontcourt performed admirably against a big team in New York (most notable were Robert Williams III and Grant Williams’ play), getting more help against a reigning Eastern Conference Finals team wouldn’t hurt in the slightest. Expect both Williams’ and Vincent Poirier to get another shot at defending the interior-heavy Bucks, and maybe we’ll even see some Tacko Fall action.

The 2-1 Boston Celtics will take on the 2-1 Milwaukee Bucks tomorrow at 7:30 PM EST on ESPN.
