Midway through the third quarter, Semi Ojeleye collided into Blake Griffin on a drive. He immediately left the game limping grabbing either his hamstring and/or knee. After a brief stint on the bench, he went to the locker room with the trainers.

It was Ojeleye’s second start in a row after hitting six three pointers and leading the team in scoring with 24 last night against the Raptors. He left the game tonight with 9 points (2-for-4 from behind the arc), 5 rebounds, and 3 assists in 23 minutes of play.

The Celtics were already without Kemba Walker (load management), Marcus Smart (strained calf), Robert Williams (hip soreness), and Romeo Langford (wrist rehab).

UPDATE: Per the Celtics, Ojeleye will not return with a sore knee.
