Horford out, Irving probable vs Denver

BOSTON – The days of playing short-handed continue for the Boston Celtics who will be without at least one all-star when they host the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.

The Celtics announced on Tuesday that Al Horford (rest) will not play. A knee collision with Detroit’s Anthony Tolliver on Sunday made Horford a game-time decision prior to Boston’s 108-85 loss at Chicago on Monday. Horford played but like most of his teammates, didn’t play as well as he would have liked before finishing with 15 points, four rebounds and five assists which included him missing all four of his 3-point attempts.

Horford, Irving Helping To Mold C's Emerging Stars

BOSTON – How have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, two 21-and-under wings, proven this season that age is just a number? The answer lies in the presence of two of their teammates.

In Al Horford and Kyrie Irving, the Celtics have two four-time All-Stars who approach their on-court and off-court lives as basketball players in a truly professional manner. That type of example, as Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle pointed out earlier this season, can make a profound impact on young players like Brown and Tatum.

“When you pair really good talent with really good leadership on teams,” Carlisle said before facing the Celtics on Nov. 20, “guys get better faster.”
