Already sidelined for Boston in the game was Al Horford, Marcus Morris, and Guerschon Yabusele. Horford and Morris are both out with soreness, so they should be available in the upcoming contests.
In contrast, Yabusele and Baynes are expected to miss an extended amount of time.
During his second season with the Celtics, Baynes has averaged 5.5 points and 4.4 rebounds over 14.8 minutes of playing time.
