The Celtics are listing Al Horford as questionable for Monday’s game with a right knee contusion.
Horford briefly left Sunday’s game and said he’d see how it felt this morning. The answer isn’t definitive, but he’s definitely not 100 percent. If Horford sits (the odds of which are higher than normal given the B2B situation), Aron Baynes will get lots of minutes at center. Daniel Theis would also be looking at extra work, and there’d be some run off in the direction of Guerschon Yabusele and Semi Ojeleye. The first two are the most reliable fantasy alternatives but there’s not much there anyway. A Horford absence would leave Boston very undermanned and turn a matchup with the Bulls into one of the uglier bouts on the card tonight.
