The Boston Celtics should have at least two of their big three available when they try and stop the Phoenix Suns on Thursday.

Celtics Injury Report

Kemba Walker has been cleared of a non-COVID illness that has also affected Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart.

Walker missed Boston's 102-96 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday, but it looks like he'll suit up tonight. Walker will head right back into the starting lineup at the point, sending Payton Pritchard back to the bench. You might want to look for another option at FanDuel since Walker is pricey at $6900 and will be matching up with Chris Paul and Phoenix's sixth-ranked defense.

Jayson Tatum was originally listed as questionable with a left ankle impingement but will be available against Phoenix. Tatum has been a beast of late as Boston has risen in the Eastern Conference and is coming off a triple-double against the Bulls earlier this week. The 23-year-old could have a bigger scoring workload if Jaylen Brown, who is listed as doubtful with shoulder bursitis, doesn't suit up.

Boston is a slight home dog at FanDuel Sportsbook coming in at +1.5 and could be a good value play on the moneyline at +102. Phoenix is on the second half of a back-to-back after a tight game with the 76ers last night and will play their third game on the road in four nights against top competition in the East.
