Celtics list three players on initial Game 6 injury report
In their Game 5 win over the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics had their full rotation available for the first time all series. Heading into a potentially-clinching Game 6, the team isn’t ruling anybody out yet.
On Thursday, the Celtics released their first injury report prior to Game 6. It’s identical to the one they released before Game 5, with Marcus Smart (ankle) and Robert Williams (knee) both listed as questionable. Forward Sam Hauser (shoulder) remains out as he has been all postseason.
The Heat also aren’t ruling anybody out, but are listing five players – all regulars in the rotation – as questionable. That includes guard Tyler Herro (groin), who missed Game 5. Other names on the list are guards Kyle Lowry (hamstring), Max Strus (hamstring), and Gabe Vincent (hamstring) and forward P.J. Tucker (knee).
The next update from both teams will likely come at some point early Friday afternoon. Game 6 takes place Friday night at TD Garden, with coverage beginning at 8 p.m. ET on 98.5 The Sports Hub and the 98.5 The Sports Hub Celtics Radio Network.
