Celtics Center Rule Out for today’s Game vs. Knicks
Monday night’s matchup between the Celtics and Knicks will tip off at 7:30 EST at TD Garden.
After suffering two straight losses, their first defeats of the 2023-24 campaign, the Boston Celtics bounced back with consecutive wins.
First, they bested the Brooklyn Nets, 121-107, in their first game of the NBA’s inaugural in-season tournament. Then, they made light work of the Toronto Raptors in a 117-94 victory Saturday night.
Now Boston welcomes the New York Knicks to TD Garden for a Monday night matchup. These two squared off in their season opener, with the Celtics earning a 108-104 win at Madison Square Garden.
Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis (8) dunks past New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson (23).
The only player on the hosts’ injury report for the rematch is center Neemias Queta. The 24-year-old from Portugal will miss his eighth-consecutive regular-season game due to right foot injury management.
Queta recently started doing on-court work again, and he’s on track to return soon, but the team will continue taking a cautious approach with his progression.
