The 2 time NBA All-Defensive First Team player is recovering from the injury, that happened at the end of last month. The Celtics are 5-6 without him in the lineup and he could miss seven more games through the end of the first-half of the season. He’s averaging 13 points, 6 assists and close to 2 steals per game.
