Pregame: Humphries out, too
By Chris Forsberg
Add Kris Humphries to the list of unavailable bodies on Saturday for the Boston Celtics.
Humphries tried to warm up in Cleveland, but his ailing knee won't allow him to go. Humphries eased him back into action on Friday night, after missing the previous two games with right knee tendinitis. The knee, which he says will only improve with extended time off, simply isn't healthy enough to play on consecutive nights.
That means that the Celtics are without Humphries, Rajon Rondo (left shin), Jared Sullinger (left ankle), and Jerryd Bayless (right knee). The Celtics have only eight healthy bodies available for Saturday's game
Boston started Phil Pressey, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, and Kelly Olynyk.
For the Cavaliers, Luol Deng is out.
