The Boston Celtics have been dealing with numerous injuries this season, and that isn’t changing tomorrow night as the Celtics are set to take on the third-place Miami Heat.

Jayson Tatum injured his groin against the Memphis Grizzlies last Wednesday, and he subsequently missed the next two games against the Orlando Magic and the New Orleans Pelicans. Although reports were positive last night about his progress, it appears he’s been downgraded to doubtful.

Javonte Green played well in those two games, but after a massive putback dunk against the Pelicans, he appeared to injure his knee, leading to his presence on the injury report. Enes Kanter remains out with a hip contusion, though the hope is that he can be ready to go Thursday as the Golden State Warriors head to Boston.

Robert Williams III remains out until at least the All-Star break with a bone edema.

Boston will look to take a 2-0 lead in the season series against the Miami Heat tomorrow at 7:30 PM EST on TNT.
