Boston Celtics

Celtics Looks to Get Back on Track at Home

Just when the Toronto Raptors (33-12 SU, 20-25 ATS) were getting healthy, a key rotation player has hit the injured list ahead of Wednesday’s big matchup with the Boston Celtics (25-18 SU, 22-21 ATS). Fred VanVleet is listed as day-to-day with a hip/thigh contusion.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, ESPN, TSN (Toronto), NBCS Boston LINE: Celtics -2.5; O/U: 223.5.

VanVleet appears to have hurt himself during Friday’s 122-105 romp over the Brooklyn Nets (+10 away). He sat out Sunday against the Wizards. Meanwhile, Kyle Lowry logged 50 minutes for the Raptors, and all the remaining starters played more than 40 minutes. They’ll have two days off to prepare for the Celtics, who visited the Nets on Monday. The Celtics lost 109-102. The Celtics were swept on their three-game road trip through Miami, Orlando and Brooklyn and return home with questions about the team’s consistency and cohesiveness.

Kawhi Leonard Leonard, meanwhile, is suffering from tightness in his left leg. Leonard’s issue doesn’t appear to be serious – he finished Sunday’s game in Washington after a brief visit to the dressing room. However, Leonard also played 45 minutes in Toronto’s 140-138 double-overtime win over the Wizards (+5 at home). With the Raptors returning home Thursday to play the Phoenix Suns, there’s a good chance Leonard will sit out the first of these back-to-back games

PREDICTION: Raptors 118, Celtics 111
