The Boston Celtics recalled MarShon Brooks from the Maine Red Claws of the D-League on Thursday. He's expected to rejoin the team for Friday's game against the Golden State Warriors.

Brooks, who has played only 61 minutes in nine appearances for Boston this season, used a five-game stint in Maine to shake some rust and prep for whenever an opportunity arrives with the Celtics. Brooks averaged 27.4 points, 6 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1 block over 35 minutes per game.

The Celtics created some backcourt minutes by trading Courtney Lee to Memphis this week, but newly acquired Jerryd Bayless has filled those minutes initially. The backcourt will get a little more crowded when rehabbing Rajon Rondo returns to game action.
