Kyrie joined the Celtics in Brooklyn on Monday and will return to the court wearing a mask intended to protect him from further damage. He has been returning top-20 value this year and owners can safely deploy him in their lineups. The return will send Marcus Smart back to the bench but he is already averaging 30 minutes per game so he shouldn’t see a big change in his numbers. Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin will also have their roles reduced as the Celtics look to continue their winning streak.
