Celtics injury report: Will C's have Horford for Raptors game?


Al Horford could be ready to make his 2021-22 NBA season debut Friday night when the Boston Celtics host the Toronto Raptors.

Boston listed the veteran big man as questionable for the home opener as he returns from COVID-19, which kept him sidelined in the preseason. Grant Williams replaced Al Horford in the Celtics' starting lineup for Wednesday's season opener vs. the New York Knicks.
