The Celtics have announced that Al Horford will sit out Sunday’s game with an illness.
Hopefully Horford isn’t out long, as the Celtics are one of two teams left scrapping for home court throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. Aron Baynes may draw the start at center but Marcus Morris stands to benefit with extra time at the power forward slot. He’s been knocking down his triples lately and should return late-round value at a minimum going forward. Daniel Theis should also get some extra minutes and is a nice target for blocks and boards.
