Al Horford questionable for Celtics vs. Pacers Game 2 due to illness


The Boston Celtics added an unexpected name to their injury report Wednesday.

Forward Al Horford is questionable for Wednesday night's Game 2 of the Celtics' first-round NBA playoff matchup with the Indiana Pacers due to illness, the team announced.

Horford obviously would be a significant loss for Boston if he can't go in Game 2. The veteran forward was vital to the Celtics in Game 1, making key plays in the third quarter to spark a comeback victory at TD Garden.

Game 2 is set for 7 p.m. ET in Boston, with pregame coverage on NBC Sports Boston beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
