Celtics Should Be Concerned About Al Horford's Injury

Irving Hayward Horford headline Celtics injuries

"According to multiple sources, a group text exchange began with "two or three players' advocating for the rare practice called after a set of back-to-back games with another game scheduled Monday".

"It just shows how talented we are from top to bottom, especially Rob coming in and making such an impact, " said Tatum. "We have a myriad of issues we have to fix". Zach LaVine led the way with 19 points in a game that was a story of two halves. "We're moving the ball, the ball's popping, everybody's getting shots".

Riding their longest win streak of the season, the Celtics are finally looking like the team they were hyped up to be.

As a result, Kyrie Irving has been pretty outspoken in his belief that the Celtics have righted their ship, and with a fairly soft portion of their schedule through December 21, they'll have an opportunity to continue to string together some wins. It was the Celtics' largest margin of victory in franchise history. It also tied for the biggest road win in National Basketball Association history, equaling the 136-80 trouncing by the Seattle SuperSonics of the Houston Rockets on December 6, 1986.

Theis role in Monday's home game against the New Orleans Pelicans will largely depend on the health of the Celtics' frontcourt.

New Orleans was short-handed as well, but to a much lesser degree, playing without E'Twaun Moore (leg) and then losing Nikola Mirotic (ankle) in the second half to injury. The four players combine to average more than 50 points, 21 rebounds and 14 assists this season.

Since that embarrassment, the Celtics have gone 6-1, improving to 15-10, with the lone loss coming to the Dallas Mavericks on November 24.

Kyrie Irving's shoulder wasn't sore enough to keep him from cheering for Marcus Morris Sr. when he hit three 3-pointers to start the second half and propel Boston to a double-digit lead.

Hayward continues to shake the rust off and has gotten comfortable being a playmaker with the reserves. Yabusele, who suffered what at first glance appeared to be a serious ankle injury in Chicago, was in the locker room moving around without a walking boot before Monday's game.

Semi Ojeleye (11 points, six rebounds) and Brad Wanamaker (four points, four assists) also took advantage of prime playing time. They are now up to 110.3 points thanks to the recent surge.

Kris Dunn played a little bit better than Portis as he shot more efficiently from the field. In response, he said that he felt the players were "embarrassing", and said they needed more leadership. But we still have to find a way to win. "No matter who's on the floor, we've got to be able to come out with wins".
