The Celtics' season is finally here and we'll have all the updates for you as they take on Fenerbahce Ulker of Turkey at 2 p.m.

As for the game, Chris Wilcox (back spasms), Avery Bradley (shoulder surgery) and Micah Downs (sore left shoulder) are out. The injury really damages Downs's chances of staying longer in training camp.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said the starters will play about half the game and he'll allow the younger players to go most of the second half.

Two players to watch for Fenerbahce Ulker are point guard Bo McCalebb and center Michael Batiste. Batiste, a former Long Beach State player, is a European veteran. McCalebb played at the University of New Orleans and is considered one of the best point guards in Europe.
