Best of luck to Brad Stevens over the next few weeks, as the Celtics head coach will have to continue to juggle his roster and rotations.
“As far as rotating other guys and who gets those minutes, who has a chance to play that hasn’t been playing as much or who is going to play more who has been playing a little bit, that’ll be determined based on opponent over the next five games that we’re on this trip,” Stevens explained Monday. Walker sat out last Monday night in Chicago after playing the night before, and will likely sit out Wednesday night as the team keeps him in bubble wrap. The veteran has averaged just under 25 minutes in his six games back, with his heaviest workload at 28:35 against Philadelphia on Jan. 22.
Stevens is going to have to put on quite the show over the next few weeks, as he tries to maneuver a guard rotation that has taken two big hits over the last two weeks.
