In the first half of game 4 against the Sixers, Boston’s back up point guard suffered a shoulder injury.
A report came out this morning saying that Shane Larkin is “very very sore”. (Shoulder sprain)
Coach Brad Stevens said that he will be out for game 5 tonight and the foreseeable future.
Surgery probably won’t be necessary.
Boston has shown that they can play with pretty much anyone out there on the court with the likes of Stevens holding the reigns.
Look for the Celtics to be un-phased as they look to close out the series tonight even more short handed than they were before.
