12/5/2022 Al Horford, BOS, F-C
Horford will sit out when the Celtics conclude a back-to-back set on Monday at Toronto.

12/5/2022 Malcolm Brogdon, BOS, G
The Celtics will hold out Brogdon (illness) for Monday's game at Toronto.

Analysis: Brogdon's absence may have more to do with this being the second of a back-to-back more than anything else. Payton Pritchard averaged 10 points and 3.5 rebounds when Brogdon missed four straight games in mid-November and should be in line for an increased role.
