The Boston Celtics will not have Rajon Rondo (bruised left shin), Jared Sullinger (sprained left ankle), or Jerryd Bayless (hyperextended right knee) available for Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rondo will miss his second straight game after being a late scratch before Friday's win over the Charlotte Bobcats. Both Sullinger and Bayless suffered their maladies in Friday's game. Sullinger returned in the fourth quarter, but his ankle was swollen after the game. Bayless remained in Boston for an MRI and did not accompany the team to Cleveland.

The Celtics also announced that forward/center Kris Humphries will be a game-time decision after he eased himself back into action Friday after missing two games due to right knee tendinitis.

If Humphries cannot play, Boston would be dangerously thin with only eight available bodies. Vitor Faverani and Gerald Wallace are out for the year after knee surgeries, while Keith Bogans has been excused from the team since mid-January.
