Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls: Injuries and likely starting lineups

The Boston Celtics return to action after a long layoff for the NBA’s 2024 All-Star Week festivities, and do so against a banged-up Chicago Bulls squad. The Celtics seem to be trending towards good health at the start of the stretch run, with no players listed as out for the contest.

That means that the Celtics may get to see newly-acquired backup big man Xavier Tillman, Sr. on the court for Boston for the first time, but they may need to wait for their other trade deadline addition. That is because reserve wing Jaden Springer is still listed as questionable for the game with a right ankle impingement.

On the other side of the court, the Bulls list Lonzo Ball (knee), Torrey Craig (knee), Zach LaVine (foot), and Patrick Williams (bone edema) as out.

Probable starting lineups


  • Jrue Holiday

  • Jaylen Brown

  • Derrick White

  • Jayson Tatum

  • Al Horford


  • Coby White

  • Ayo Dosunmu

  • DeMar DeRozan

  • Nikola Vucevic

  • Andre Drummond
