The Boston Celtics expect to get All-Star guard Kemba Walker back but could be missing two other key players when they host the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.
Such has been a constant for the Celtics this season as short-term ailments have kept the team’s starting five from playing together on a regular basis. Irving, who played for the Celtics the past two seasons, missed the first trip with a shoulder injury and is now out for the season after it was determined in late February that he would undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder. “Once you get one win under your belt against a quality team, that can translate into another win. That’s why tomorrow’s game is so important for us.”
Nets guard Garrett Temple is questionable for Tuesday’s game with a right shoulder sprain.
