Boston Celtics vs. Dallas Mavericks: Injuries and likely starting lineups

The Boston Celtics host the Dallas Mavericks at TD Garden for the first time this season, and will do so with a clean bill of health for the tilt for the second straight game.

The Mavs, however, are coming at this contest with a few more injury concerns to deal with than the Celtics are. They are currently dealing with a pair of big men having trouble in the nose department and a star who might not suit up. That would be Derek Lively II and Maxi Kleber, who are both listed as available due to nasal fractures, and Luka Doncic, who, apart from potentially healing up from a sprained ankle is also dealing with a broken nose.

Doncic is listed as questionable for the game.

Probable starting lineups


  • Jrue Holiday

  • Jaylen Brown

  • Derrick White

  • Jayson Tatum

  • Kristaps Porzingis


  • Kyrie Irving

  • Josh Green

  • Luka Doncic

  • PJ Washington

  • Derek Lively
