Celtics injuries linger as Marcus Morris is ruled out vs. Bucks


BOSTON -- The Celtics will remain without one of their most consistent players heading into tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Marcus Morris will miss his second game in a row with right knee soreness, the team announced this afternoon.

He joins Al Horford (patellofemoral pain syndrome in his left knee) and Aron Baynes (fractured fourth metacarpal on his right hand) among the Celtics who will not play tonight. Horford is out indefinitely while Baynes' injury is expected to keep him out at least four weeks.

Boston did get some good news on the injury front with Guerschon Yabusele available to play tonight after missing two games with an ankle sprain that was expected to keep him sidelined for more than just a couple of games. 

"The initial sprain wasn't a high ankle sprain," said Boston head coach Brad Stevens. "I initially thought it was, the way he fell. And anytime you got a guy his size sprains an ankle, you're even more concerned about it. But he's done a great job of getting back; he feels really good. They wouldn't give him the green light if he wasn't full go."
