Celtics injury report vs. Philly

Danilo Gallinari (left knee ACL repair) - OUT
Robert Williams (left knee arthroscopy) - OUT


Glad to see that Brogdon isn’t on the report. I was a little worried that he would be after exiting last game with leg soreness.

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

With Mazzulla being the first Celtics coach to begin a season 2-0 since Doc Rivers did it in 2009-10, there’s a possibility that he could end up being the coach in Boston for the long haul, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“The outlook for Joe Mazzulla is that he’s got every opportunity, even a likelihood, that he’ll be able to shed the interim tag at the end of the season and be the Celtics’ long-term coach,” Wojnarowski said on ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” Friday night. “Brad Stevens certainly believed in him when he put him in the job but the relationships with the players — it’s one thing to be an assistant coach and have a relationship, it’s another to be a head coach [with the players].

“I think for Joe Mazzulla, right away he challenged his team and said ‘Listen, people think we’re going to be vulnerable now.’ He really got them on course with his leadership. You see the ball moving, you see them playing fast. This is a Celtics team, with all the talent they have, I think having the key players on his side, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Marcus Smart, that’s been immense for him.”

“He wouldn’t have (taken) any of the credit for tonight, but the thing that I like about Joe and admire about him is that he’s very honest that he doesn’t know everything,” Tatum said following Tuesday’s win. “He wants us to help him out as much as he’s helping us out. It’s like we’re in a relationship, and we’re all on the same page and trying to accomplish the same thing. We’re all in this together.”

Surprised it wasn’t more, TBH.

I’m not.  Just because Marc Davis says it was intentional doesn’t mean it was.  He made contact, which the NBA correctly ruled as reckless, and got an extra game, which is pretty standard.  He didn’t attempt to run into the official, but he was angry and definitely did a bad job of avoiding her.

My question would be does the NBA feel a need to give more protection to female refs? I could see if it were punches thrown or something and do we really need two in one game? I just think it is asking for problems.

Danilo Gallinari will still be out for the first few months of the NBA season due to ACL surgery, but the veteran forward made some positive strides Tuesday.

But Gallinari hit the gym Tuesday and got up a corner 3-pointer. He posted the video on his Twitter, which can be seen below: https://twitter.com/gallinari8888/status/1584847737522044928?cxt=HHwWgICqodqnwf4rAAAA

“First shot after injury … Same touch,” Gallinari wrote on Twitter.

Of course due to his knee injury, the forward did not jump while taking the shot, but it is still encouraging to Gallinari back in the gym and getting shots up.

Here’s hoping Danilo recovers before the end of the regular season.

I can understand the ejection.  I think the additional suspension is a little much.  If you watch the video, she was looking at him and moving in that direction.  It’s not like he was ran up and bumped her and got in her face.  It was accidental contact and he was moving away from her

“It is clear that they’re asking about big guys but they’re asking about wings, too, poking around,” one league executive told Heavy Sports. “They’re taking the temperature on what might be out there, who might get released or bought out, who they might have to give up a pick, a first-rounder, a second-rounder, to get. It is early so no one is giving up on players now but when you get to late December and January, seems like they want to be in a good spot to make a call on what to do then.” – via Sean Deveney @ Heavy.com

Not sure how reliable and certainly not surprising.  I would say the buy out phase of the discussion is pretty much over.  That part seems like old news.  Favors (big guy) and Harkless (wing) are still out there.  Certainly not surprising that the Celtics are "poking around".  Maybe more surprising that Harkless and Favors are still available.

So the Celtics are laying the ground work for multiple avenues based on how the season goes.  Good.

I know that individual +/- is not an end all stat and that we are only 4 games in, but the initial results are interesting.  On the surprising bad side:

G. Williams    -7
Smart          -10
Brogdon       -13

On the surprising good:

D. White     +22
Vonleh         +6

Tatum and Brown are both +7, about what you would expect.  Horford is +4.  Vonleh in a fair amount of minutes is +6.  Real happy with that.  Hope he can keep it up.  No one else has enough minutes to really matter.

I hope that they're getting positive feedback about good players that may become available.  Otherwise, waiting isn't necessarily our best strategy, as we have a need now, and the means to fill it.
