Due to Rajon Rondo's suspension, along with Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox being questionable for tonight's game against the Portland Trailblazers, Joseph has been added to the roster in order to provide depth.
Celtics face a back-to-back this weekend. They will travel down to Milwaukee tomorrow night to face the Bucks after hosting Portland tonight at the Garden.
If Green and Wilcox cannot go tonight, Celtics will only have 10 healthy players. Joseph will most likely provide relief for Pierce at the small forward spot. Especially if Green is unavailable.
In his stint with the Red Claws, Joseph is playing well averaging 25.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists a game.
