Kemba Walker (flu) out against the Hawks

After his second return to Charlotte in a 109-92 win and enjoying his New Year's Eve with Celtics teammates, Kemba Walker will sit out against the Atlanta Hawks due to the flu.

Marcus Smart, who will be playing in just his third game after being out for nearly three weeks with an eye infection, will start in Walker's place. Mr. Eastern Conference Player of the Week Jaylen Brown (illness) has been listed as probable after sitting out Tuesday against the Hornets.

The Celtics at 23-8 will look to kick-off their 2020 with a win tonight when they host the 7-27 Hawks at TD Garden.

Tip-off is at 7 p.m. ET.
