The Boston Celtics might be down more than All-Star forward Jaylen Brown in their Oct. 9 preseason exhibition game Saturday evening with the Toronto Raptors, according to the team. The Celtics announced that veteran reserve point guard Dennis Schroder is listed as questionable for the tilt scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. Eastern Time at TD Garden tonight, with the German floor general evidently suffering from a left knee contusion (a fancy way to say bruise).

Presumably dinged up in practice, it may not be much to worry about given the game does not count towards the team’s 2021-22 regular-season record, but when added to Jaylen Brown’s diagnosis with an asymptomatic case of COVID-19 not even 24 hours ago, it’s understandable if fans are already getting a little nervous.

Thankfully possessing a deep bench, the absence will have plenty of options to pick up the slack should Schroder sit out the friendly, with Payton Pritchard, Josh Richardson and camp invitee Ryan Arcidiacono available to help fill in for No. 71 if the need presents itself.
