5:30 PM : The team has announced that Porzingis has been upgraded to “available” and will be participating in tonight’s game against the Timberwolves on the road.
12:30 PM : For tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Boston Celtics’ injury report is as follows:
– Oshae Brissett (left thumb sprain) – Possibly Available
– Kristaps Porzingis (right eye sty) – Questionable
– Neemias Queta (right foot injury management) – Unavailable
– Derrick White (personal reasons) – Unavailable
Porzingis wasn’t initially included in the Celtics’ injury report, indicating that his eye problem seems to have emerged unexpectedly.
According to the team, Derrick White was notably absent from the Boston Celtics’ pre-game practice.
While there was a chance he could have rejoined the team for the Timberwolves’ matchup tonight, he has made a personal decision to take a break from the game, which means Al Horford is expected to start again.
Yet, in the event that Porzingis also sits out, the identity of the fifth starter remains uncertain. Nevertheless, Horford would predominantly occupy the center position during the game in place of Porzingis.
On a positive note, Neemias Queta’s recovery from his right foot injury appears to be progressing well.
The Boston Celtics, renowned for their offensive prowess, boast a flawless 5-0 record this season, emerging as the lone undefeated team.
Their fans’ aspirations now rest upon them triumphing over the Minnesota Timberwolves(3-2), the league’s defensive juggernaut, in tonight’s away matchup.
