Following an eventful All-Star break in which Jayson Tatum got to compete in his first All-Star Game, the 21-year-old will look to get his team off to a hot start to the final stretch of the regular season.
The Celtics will have to go to battle without star point guard Kemba Walker, who was ruled out with a sore left knee. The Timberwolves will be shorthanded as well, as they'll be without star big man Karl-Anthony Towns as he deals with a wrist injury.
Boston (38-16) is coming off a thrilling double-overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers in which Tatum played the hero, dropping 39 points while playing sensational defense. Minnesota (16-37) lost 14 of its last 15 games heading into the break.
