The Boston Celtics suffered two close losses to the Houston Rockets before the NBA paused operations over concerns of COVID-19.
And on Tuesday, Boston will get a rematch in its final scrimmage before meaningful seeding games begin Thursday, July 30. But coach Brad Stevens is resting the team’s main contributors in favor of the “Summer Celtics.”
Available players for the scrimmage include:
Robert Williams III
Meanwhile, Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Daniel Theis, Marcus Smart and Enes Kanter all get a rest day.

And with the Celtics resuming their season against league MVP favorite Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks, they need all the rest they can get.
