The funeral game seems so long ago.
Ahead of tomorrow night’s matchup against the Wizards, the Boston Celtics recently released their injury report. It is, to put it midly, extensive:
#NEBHInjuryReport for tomorrow’s game vs. Washington:
Brown (concussion) – OUT
Hayward (left ankle rehab) – OUT
Horford (illness) – QUESTIONABLE
Irving (left knee soreness) – OUT
Smart (right thumb sprain) – OUT
Theis (left knee meniscal tear) – OUT

That is so, so many of their players. It’s their starting All-Pro point guard, their 2nd-year wing starter, their All-Star caliber center, and their best defensive player/hustle guy.
It looks like tomorrow is going to be the Wizards vs. Jayson Tatum and the Celtics bench.
That sound you hear is the Wizards dodging all the bullets.
