Andrew Bogut Healthy, Ready to Play Against Celtics at TD Garden

The Celtics made quick work of the Milwaukee Bucks a week ago, but that was back in the good old days when Scott Skiles' club was still fighting through major injuries. Since then, they've made two big strides back.

Big man Andrew Bogut is back in the mix, giving the Bucks an All-Star caliber man in the middle to revive them offensively. Bogut was out for a couple of weeks with a strained muscle in his rib cage, but he's back now and he's averaged 11.3 points and 9.3 rebounds in three games.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is also back after battling illness last week. He's expected to start. Drew Gooden and Ersan Ilyasova remain out for the time being, which seriously hampers Skiles' bench depth. The Bucks are still looking to get their whole team back as they make a run at the playoffs.

Kevin Garnett and Nenad Krstic will be matched up with Bogut and Mbah a Moute in the post. Glen Davis, who missed 10 days with an injury, is now back and ready to come off the bench.

Here's the lineup card for C's-Bucks:

Rajon Rondo, PG
Ray Allen, SG
Paul Pierce, SF
Kevin Garnett, PF
Nenad Krstic, C

Brandon Jennings, PG
Carlos Delfino, SG
John Salmons, SF
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF
Andrew Bogut, C
