The Boston Celtics are once again banged up as they begin a three-game road trip on Friday in Orlando against the Magic:

Kanter will miss his eighth game of the season against a big Magic frontline featuring Nikola Vucevic, Khem Birch and Mo Bamba.

If Brown can’t go, he’ll miss back-to-back games, after being out against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. It would be Brown’s fourth game missed out of the last five, as he recently returned from a sprained right thumb. Overall, Brown has missed seven games this season.

Tatum has missed one game this season, a loss against the Detroit Pistons. He came up limping in the second half against Memphis on Wednesday and was diagnosed with a strained right groin. Brad Stevens said after the game that he’s not concerned this will be a long-term issue for Tatum

Williams remains out for his 23rd straight game. He’s been out since suffering a fall against the Denver Nuggets. Recently Williams started amping up his activity towards a potential return later this season.
