While Jaylen Brown is out for the rest of the year, Walker is still not playing back-to-backs, Williams (turf toe) has no definite return date and Smart will also not play due to a contusion in the same right calf he injured back in January.
#NEBHInjuryReport vs. Cleveland:— Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 12, 2021
Jaylen Brown (Left Scapholunate Ligament Tear) - OUT
Marcus Smart (Right Calf Contusion) - OUT
Kemba Walker (Left Knee Injury Management) - OUT
Robert Williams (Left Foot Turf Toe) - OUT
The Celtics are currently in seventh place at 35-34 and three-games behind the sixth seeded New York Knicks (38-31), but ahead of the 33-36 Charlotte Hornets (eigth) by two games in the loss column. With the likely hood that the "Play-In Tournament will be the C's fate, Smart could be just getting some much needed rest before the team travels to Minnesota Saturday and then Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
