Enes Kanter To Miss Sixth Straight Game, Jaylen Brown Returns Vs. Hornets

The Celtics meet the Charlotte Hornets at Spectrum Center on Thursday night in a meeting of Kemba Walker and Terry Rozier in their new threads, but Boston will do so without center Enes Kanter.

Kanter, who suffered a left knee injury in the Celtics’ season opener against the Philadelphia 76ers, will miss his sixth consecutive game Thursday after being upgraded to questionable just 24 hours earlier, per the Celtics. Jaylen Brown will make his return to the lineup after missing three straight games with an infection.

Daniel Theis and Robert Williams both were listed with lingering ankle and hip injuries, respectively, but will be available just as they were Tuesday vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Celtics and Hornets are set to tip-off Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET.
