NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics signed center Greg Monroe to a 10-day contract today, filling an immediate need while Al Horford rests again tonight. Jayson Tatum and Robert Williams are both out with injuries. Aron Baynes and Gordon Hayward are both available.

If you’re flashing back to the cat scene in the Matrix, fear not.

This is the very same Greg Monroe who joined the Celtics in the postseason in 2018. While Monroe was touted for his passing and scoring ability off the bench, he wasn’t exactly a second unit turbo boost. Monroe put up a respectable 10.2 PPG, 6.23 RB, 2.3 AST, and 1.1 ST on 19 MPG and better than 50% shooting.

Monroe should be available tonight, per CelticsBlog’s own Keith P. Smith.
