Jaylen Brown (left shoulder bursitis) - DOUBTFUL
Evan Fournier (Health & Safety Protocols) - OUT
Jayson Tatum - AVAILABLE

Celtics president of basketball operation Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Toucher and Rich" and gave an update on Brown's left shoulder bursitis, which was sustained in Monday night's loss to the Chicago Bulls.
“Yeah, I don't know for sure," Ainge said Thursday morning. "It looked like it was better yesterday, but it was just sore. I could see during the broadcast the other night that his shoulder was bothering him, and he made a move and he's not sure if it’s just if he got hit or just stretched it out. But he’ll be alright in the next few days in my opinion.
"I'm not sure when exactly, but it was still sore yesterday. Hopefully he's feeling better today."
