Celtics injury report: Seven players ruled out vs. Cavaliers originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
#NEBHInjuryReport for tomorrow vs. Cleveland:
Sam Hauser (Health & Safety Protocols)- OUT
Juancho Hernangomez (Health & Safety Protocols) - OUT
Al Horford (Health & Safety Protocols) - OUT
Jabari Parker (Health & Safety Protocols) - OUT
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) December 21, 2021
Most notably, starting power forward Al Horford will miss his fourth straight game due to protocols, while rotation players Grant Williams and Josh Richardson will miss their fourth and second straight games, respectively.
Like many NBA teams currently, Boston has been hit hard by the latest wave of COVID-19.
Since returning from a disastrous 1-4 five-game West Coast road trip and players began appearing in protocol, the Celtics are 2-2, with wins over the Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks and losses against the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers.
The Cavs are 19-12, in third place in the Eastern Conference following six straight wins.
