Al Horford News
Boston Celtics center Al Horford (groin) and guard Romeo Langford (calf) have been ruled out for Monday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. Horford has a left adductor strain, while Langford is dealing with left calf tightness. Horford's absence means that the team will likely lean more on Grant Williams and Robert Williams III, both of whom are prime targets for DFS on Monday. Horford is off to a solid start to the year. He's posted a double-double in each of the two games he's played. Over those two games, he's averaged 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game.
Boston Celtics forward Al Horford (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. The veteran big man continues to work his way back from COVID-19. He was able to play 30 minutes on Sunday, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Horford sit out here. He is still trying to get his conditioning back and also dealing with a groin injury. Grant Williams would likely be asked to slide into the starting five for Monday's game. He'd have some streaming appeal and be an interesting DFS option, assuming Horford sits out.
Boston Celtics shooting guard/small forward Josh Richardson (migraine) and power forward/center Al Horford (health and safety protocols) will make their respective season debuts during Friday's contest against the Raptors. Richardson figures to lead Boston's second unit, while Horford -- who is expected to play just 20-25 minutes -- shifts into the starting lineup. With Horford back in the mix, Grant Williams moves into his familiar bench role, zapping him of most of his fantasy intrigue. Richardson has not averaged fewer than 30 minutes per contest since his rookie season 2015-16, but his role with the Celtics remains very much up in the air to start the season.
Boston Celtics forward/center Al Horfordhas been ruled out for Wednesday's opener against the New York Knicks. Horford's homecoming tour will be delayed after the veteran center tested positive for COVID-19 and is in quarantine. It is unclear if Horford is showing any symptoms, but for now it's safe to assume his chances of playing opening week are slim. Horford's absence will likely give Robert Williams III, Enes Kanter and Grant Williams extra minutes at the center position.
