#NEBHInjuryReport for tomorrow vs. Orlando:— Boston Celtics (@celtics) January 22, 2023
Malcolm Brogdon (personal reasons) - OUT
Danilo Gallinari (left knee ACL repair) - OUT
Marcus Smart (right ankle sprain) - OUT
Robert Williams (left knee injury management) - QUESTIONABLE
Smart sustained the injury late in the second quarter of the C's 106-104 win over the Toronto Raptors Saturday night. Meanwhile, Robert Williams -- who's also listed as questionable -- collided with his teammate Jaylen Brown and banged the left knee that he's still rehabbing in the same game. Both Williams and Smart did not return following halftime.
"Rob hyperextended his knee," said Mazzulla during his postgame comments. "It's nothing serious, just obviously taking precaution. He felt good coming off the court. Smart, obviously you saw, sprained his ankle. X-Rays were negative. It's just a matter of how he's able to cope with it day-to-day,"
