Celtics Injury Report: Things Look Promising For Clash With Blazers

Marcus Smart and Aaron Nesmith both are questionable

by

The Boston Celtics’ injury report continues to get smaller and smaller.

Boston has been on a roll lately — although it fell to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night — as it’s gotten healthier, and the C’s could have even more good news on the horizon.

The Celtics released their injury report for their Friday night showdown with the Portland Trail Blazers at TD Garden, and only two players remained on the list — Marcus Smart and Aaron Nesmith — and both are listed as questionable.

Smart has missed the squad’s last five games after testing positive for COVID-19, but he has cleared the NBA’s health and safety protocols and should be back Friday or Sunday against the Washington Wizards at the latest.

Nesmith missed the Celtics’ loss to the Hornets due to an ankle sprain, but it’s a good sign he’s already listed as questionable.

The Celtics will look to get back in the win column Friday against the Blazers, with tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET from TD Garden.
