The Celtics will go for their third win of the season against the Wizards but it will have to come without Rajon Rondo, who will miss his second consecutive game with a sprained right wrist. And as expected, Keyon Dooling and Chris Wilcox are also out.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he is not concerned about Rondo's injury long term but he is questionable to return tomorrow against the Orlando Magic.
So Avery Bradley will be the start and will be helped by E'Twaun Moore. The combo was inconsistent in Friday's loss to Phoenix but Bradley had his moments.
