I hate to say it but with Seth Curry testing positive for Covid, and the Wizards having played the Sixers a couple of nights ago, the Wizards should immediately quarantine and this game should probably be canceled.

Yeah, I don’t think this is good news. Cs have 5 guys now that likely won’t play tonight. Green has been out like 1.5 weeks now. If the 5 players need to sit out the same amount of time, the Cs will be very short handed.

i expect we will see a lot of waters, edwards, and fall. who else do they have?

edwards showed a flicker of nba ability last game. let's see if he can build that into a fire.

fall, he will play hard and do his best and be very tall....and then probably foul out.  ;)

waters....i have not had the love for him that others here do. i like his defense and playmaking. but his shooting and turn overs are a problem.

heck, we may even see nesmith play for a while. let's see whether the nba game is still too fast for him.

This game shouldn't even be played. Seth Curry tested positive and he played against the Wizards a few days ago. Now the C's have a positive case (Timelord) + 3 other guys who were supposedly in close contact. And obviously between the three teams (PHI, WAS, BOS), these guys probably were near each other and probably interacted with each other even on the bench or off-the-court. Just not safe to play the game and potentially lead to a bigger outbreak.

People are getting excited to see more of Tacko Fall.  I don't think that will be the case.  I see a core unit of Smart, Brown, Tatum, Theis, Ojeleye, all playing up to 36 min.  Pritchard will play around 24 and that leaves 12 each for Waters, Edwards, Nesmith.

Unless there is foul trouble or a blow out, I don't expect much of Tacko.

Ojeleye vs. Thompson or either Williams is not all that much different so playing Semi more is really not that big a deal.  We will be very small though.  Our closing unit will probably be Pritchard, Smart, Brown, Tatum, Theis, pretty much what we saw down the stretch against Miami anyway.  Maybe even start the game with that unit.

Waters, Edwards, Nesmith, Ojeleye plus one starter as the second unit, yikes.

Teague and Green might play though, right?

We got this .....

Three man game .....two guards looking for Tacko under the rim,  when they pack it in ,   you shoot 8-15 jumpers all day .  NO threes !   That leads to fast breaks and this is bad for tacko . 

Shoot the ball in close make them either step out a few feet or get dunked on . 

Pritchard should use Tacko as a dunking machine , never more than 6 feet from the rim.

I have a tough time seeing them roll with Semi as a small-ball center, or Tatum for that matter. I think Tacko definitely gets 12-15 minutes, and we pray that Theis somehow stays out of foul trouble.

Forget tonight, shouldn’t  the entire Celtics team need to quarentine for 14 days? We have a positive player that everyone was exposed to...

It’s actually gross negligence and very disappointing on the NBA’s part if these games are played, having these exposed players out in the world possibly spreading a virus they currently test negative for...

There's no way they are doing that. Even in the MLB, NFL, etc. when they had outbreaks on certain teams or groups of teams, they just kept playing on and pushed on.
