Monday night at TD Garden, Derrick White registered his first triple-double and scored his 5,000th career point.

After his milestone night, the seventh-year guard shared with Inside The Celtics what he's most proud of about a basketball journey that, collegiately, started at the University of Colorado–Colorado Springs, a place whose list of alums to reach the NBA starts and ends with him.

White's chance for an encore after helping lead Boston to a 119-94 victory vs. the Detroit Pistons will come Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

As the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, at least based on records, prepare for their third of four regular-season meetings, with the series tied at one, multiple starters are on the hosts' injury report.

The Celtics, who enter this clash ten games ahead of Milwaukee, list Jaylen Brown as questionable due to a right ankle sprain. Jrue Holiday, who did not play in Monday's win vs. the Pistons, has the same status because of a right AC joint sprain.

Sam Hauser, who erupted for a career-high 30 points, burying 10/13 threes, also a personal best, in Boston's 130-104 victory over the Washington Wizards, is questionable due to the left ankle sprain that abruptly ended his Saint Patrick's Day performance.

That he's not already ruled out seems like a positive development after the six-foot-eight sharpshooter missed Monday's matchup against Detroit.
