Boston might get more backup as they head to Charlotte to take on Terry Rozier and Kemba Walker’s former squad.

The 5-1 Boston Celtics are surging and in the middle of a road trip that has Charlotte as the next stop. This will be Kemba Walker’s first game back in Charlotte as a member of the visiting team after signing with Boston this past offseason. Thankfully, he might have his starting backcourt mate in the lineup with him when the game tips off.

Jaylen Brown has missed the last 3 games with an illness that turned into an infection, and that has kept him out of the lineup since Boston’s victory against the Milwaukee Bucks. That hasn’t slowed Boston down as they’ve beaten up on teams, not suffering any losses since their Opening Night defeat to the Philadelphia 76ers. Currently, the Celtics are tied for #1 in the East.

Enes Kanter suffered his left knee contusion in that same game against Philadelphia, and he has yet to play since then. Instead of being listed as out, it’s a positive development for Boston’s front court that he’s not outright listed as out for tomorrow’s game. As for Daniel Theis and Robert Williams III, they’ve battled through injuries here and there, but both seem ready to go as Boston approaches their next game tomorrow.

The Boston Celtics will travel to play the Charlotte Hornets tomorrow night at 8PM EST on TNT.
