BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Celtics guards Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart are injured--nowhere close to a return--and reserve Shane Larkin's just out of the hospital after a couple days battling the flu.
So, that leaves Boston's back-court to rely on Terry Rozier, who's dealing with a nagging ankle injury.
He'll need to be fine because, again, Boston's thin at guard, and this is a potential playoff preview with the Bucks at 8 p.m.
Plus, Rozier's been really good lately. He's scored at least 10 points each of his last 25 games and he's averaging nearly 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists during the run.
The C's have won their last six to move within two games of the Raptors for first in the East. Boston's also taken two of three meetings from Milwaukee this year.
Bucks have won four of their last six.
Hear from Rozier below.
