Porzingis left in the middle of the third quarter of the C's 113-96 loss to the Orlando Magic Friday afternoon with what the team is calling a left calf strain and did not return. The veteran big man, who finished with nine points and four rebounds, will miss at least the next three games as he'll be re-examined during the week -- according to coach Joe Mazzulla.

However, Holiday was seen shooting around during today's pregame and seemed to be moving comfortably just movements prior to Mazzulla telling reporters the point guard was downgraded and would be sitting out.

No word if Holiday will be considered day-to-day, but with Porzingis missing the next few games, the Celtics most likely will start Al Horford for the foreseeable future. They have also reportedly recalled rookie Jordan Walsh from their G League affiliate up in Maine.
