BOSTON -- Finally, some good news on the injury front for the Celtics. 

Aron Baynes, who suffered what coach Brad Stevens described as a Grade-2 ankle sprain on Wednesday, appears to be on a quicker-than-expected road to recovery. The injury which often sidelines folks for at least a month, won’t keep Baynes out that long. 

In fact, Stevens told reporters on Friday there’s a chance that Baynes could be available as early as Sunday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs. 

The injury occured in the first half of Boston’s 118-115 loss to the Sixers, the latest chapter in what has been an injury-riddled season for Baynes. 

An assortment of injuries have led to Baynes missing a career-high 29 games this season. And without Baynes, the Celtics are just 16-13 this season
