BREAKING: Huge Update To Celtics Injury Report

Al Horford has been ruled out for Game 1 between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

The Boston Celtics are in Florida to take on the Miami Heat for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday night, and there has been a huge update to their injury report for the game.

Former All-Star Al Horford has been ruled out for Game 1 due to health and safety protocols.  

Horford had originally not been on the injury report, so him being ruled out was very late.  

The five-time NBA All-Star had been on the decline for several years, but he has been playing fantastic as of late and was a huge reason that the Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks in the second-round of the playoffs.

Therefore, him missing Game 1 could be very costly for the Celtics on the road against the Heat. 

Meanwhile, the Heat have been resting for over four days, because they wrapped up their second-round playoff series last Thursday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The two teams played in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2020, and the Heat won the series. 

  • SHOULD THE BUCKS MAKE A TRADE? On Sunday afternoon, the Milwaukee Bucks lost Game 7 to the Boston Celtics, which officially ends their 2021-22 NBA season in the second-round. Last season, they won the NBA Championship, and they will now enter an offseason where they can look to improve the roster to get back to the NBA Finals. CLICK HERE.
