Horford was in the concussion protocol after being hit in the head on Monday. The injury was never thought to be all that serious (at least as far as concussions go) so it’s not surprising to see him back quickly. The fact that he was ruled out in advance of the game gives us some pause about his potential availability for tonight regardless of the change in tag. If he were to end up playing, it’d suck the wind right out of Aron Baynes‘ sails, though the Celtics might need him tonight against the Hornets’ big frontcourt. Perhaps Marcus Morris takes the bigger hit and Horford slides to power forward. Check back for an update closer to game time.
