Irving out, Rozier doubtful against the Pistons

Boston’s guard rotation could be pretty light tonight in the last game before the All-Star Break.

The shorthanded Boston Celtics will continue to be shorthanded as the Detroit Pistons come into town for the last game before the weeklong All-Star Break.

In addition to Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) and Terry Rozier, Aron Baynes remains out until next week at the earliest. The Celtics pulled off a gritty win last night against the Philadelphia 76ers, and they’ll be tested once again with little rest in between.

Before the hot takes come out, Kyrie Irving missing tonight’s game and potentially playing in the All-Star Game on Sunday, if he feels well enough to do so, means literally nothing. The 36-21 Celtics are sitting in 4th place in the East right now as they face off against the 29-26 Pistons in 8th at 7:30PM EST.
