The Boston Celtics suddenly are a banged-up bunch.
Aron Baynes, Kyrie Irving and Guerschon Yabusele all have been ruled out for Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans with various ailments. Furthermore, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward are listed as doubtful for the highly anticipated matchup at TD Garden.
Check out this injury report:
Our apologies to those who purchased tickets expecting to see the Celtics at their best.
Oh, and fans might not even get to see superstar forward Anthony Davis, as the Pelicans big man could sit out after suffering a hip injury Sunday night against the Detroit Pistons. Davis did return to that game, but with New Orleans playing the second half of a back-to-back, it wouldn’t be a surprise if “The Brow” got a breather.
If there’s one upside, it’s that the Celtics’ injury woes could result in some minutes for rookie Robert Williams III.
The Celtics and the Pelicans are scheduled to tip-off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
