Al Horford is on the mend.
The Boston Celtics center has missed seven of his team’s last 11 games — including the last five — while nursing Patellofemoral pain syndrome in his left knee. And although Horford won’t play Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns, it does sound like the 32-year-old is making some progress.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens on Tuesday offered the following update on Horford:
The Celtics have played well with Horford out of the lineup, winning four straight before falling to the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.
Horford is averaging 12.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season.
