Gordon Hayward did not return to the game after halftime. The team announced that he is out with a right knee contusion and will not return to the game.

The Celtics are already missing Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker is playing in his first game since the All Star game. Brad Stevens has given minutes to Javonte Green, Carsen Edwards, and Robert Williams so far. Given the score at the moment and the wrap on Kemba’s knee, it is likely that he will be done for the night as well. (update: he returned to the game)

We’ll update if there are any additional details on the various bumps and bruises after the game.
