Celtics rule out several starters for their tilt against the Jazz on Tuesday.

Tuesday night, the 50-14 Celtics will play their final game of a five-game road trip against the 28-36 Utah Jazz, who are ranked 12th in the Western Conference.

Monday night at the Moda Center, the Boston Celtics defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 121-99 to record their 50th victory of the year.


The C’s play the Utah Jazz to wrap up their five-game trip away from TD Garden one day later.


Due to a sprained big toe on his left foot, Al Horford will not be playing on this second night of a back-to-back. Against Portland, the 16-year-old veteran ended with 11 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 blocks.


Additionally, Jaylen Brown, who has a sacroiliac strain, has been ruled out by Boston. This is how the Mayo Clinic describes that injury:


An excruciating ailment affecting either or both sacroiliac joints. These joints are located where the pelvis and lower spine converge. Sacroiliitis may radiate down one or both legs and produce discomfort and stiffness in the lower back and buttocks.”



Against the Trail Blazers, the three-time All-Star scored a career-high 27 points. In addition, he contributed five assists and six rebounds.


A right hamstring strain will make Kristaps Porzingis to miss his third consecutive game.


It wouldn’t be shocking if Xavier Tillman, who didn’t play in Portland, ends up playing a lot of minutes in Utah now that Horford and Porzingis are out.

Svi Mykhailiuk is doubtful for Tuesday’s game against the Jazz after being out of the lineup on Monday due to personal issues.
