The Celtics kick off a five-game road trip Friday against the Golden State Warriors, and they may welcome the return of two big men from injury along the way.
The Celtics announced Thursday that Daniel Theis (sprained right little finger) and Robert Williams (sore right ankle) are questionable to play in Game 1 of the five-game swing. Gordon Hayward remains out while recovering from surgery on his broken left hand and still is expected to be out several weeks.

The Warriors have been battling the injury bug big time this season, with big names like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney sidelined with various ailments, so the Celtics won’t be facing the starting lineup they’re used to seeing from Golden State.
Tip-off at Chase Center is slated for 10:30 p.m. ET.
