While health should be better after the All-Star Break, the Celtics return to action tonight likely without Gordon Hayward, who suffered an ankle sprain during a workout. They’ll take on the NBA-leading Milwaukee Bucks on the road at 8 p.m.
Aron Baynes is also out for Boston, but Kyrie Irving should return after a two-game absence before the break. Giannis Antetokounmpo and deadline-ac uisition Nikola Mirotic are probably for the Bucks.
Also, Zion Williamson’s shoe blowout and knee injury, and Joel Embiid set to miss a week for Philadelphia 76ers.
