Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown will return to Celtics lineup Friday vs Hawks


The Boston Celtics aren't at full strength yet, but they will take strides in that direction tonight against the Atlanta Hawks.

Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward, both missing time because of illnesses, will be available to play tonight according to head coach Brad Stevens. 

Stevens also indicated that Al Horford (knee) remains out, with Aron Baynes replacing him in the starting lineup. 

However, Baynes is still on the mend from an ankle injury which will limit him to 12-15 minutes tonight according to Stevens.

Boston hosts the Atlanta Hawks tonight at 7 p.m.
