Jaylen Brown - Right Hamstring Strain - OUT
Gordon Hayward - Right Knee Contusion - OUT
For Jaylen, this will be the 12th missed game of the season, while Hayward will be sitting out his 19th game so far. Brad Stevens has hinted that Hayward is day-to-day, but Brown will be re-evaluated in a week. The Celtics have struggled to stay healthy for the majority of the season, and it currently shows no sign of changing.
Both Jaylen and Gordon have been having impactful seasons for Boston this year, with Jaylen averaging 20.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists on 49 percent shooting from the field and 38.1 percent from deep. Meanwhile, Gordon has been contributing with 16.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists on 50.3 percent from the field and 38.3 percent from 3.
The Celtics host the Jazz tomorrow night, with their attention then turning to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.
