Celtics forward Al Horford is questionable for Game 2 of the opening-round playoff series against the Pacers Wednesday night at TD Garden because of an illness.

Horford, who participated in Tuesday’s practice, had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists in Boston’s Game 1 win Sunday. If he is unable to play, Marcus Morris would be the most likely candidate to reenter the starting lineup in his place.

Morris entered the starting lineup with Marcus Smart on Nov. 23 and stayed there until being replaced by Aron Baynes for the final few weeks of the regular season. He had 20 points in Game 1.
