With Jaylen Brown, others out, Celtics down to 8 available players

The Boston Celtics announced today that Jaylen Brown, Semi Ojeleye and Javonte Green join the growing inactive list of players due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. The Celtics have just eight eligible and active players ahead of Sunday's contest with the Miami Heat.

According to Jared Weiss of The Athletic, the eligible players are: Marcus Smart, Jeff Teague, Payton Pritchard, Carsen Edwards, Tremont Waters, Aaron Nesmith, Daniel Theis and Tacko Fall.

This leaves the Celtics with a single traditional wing in the rookie Nesmith. He, Theis and Fall are the three players above 6-foot-3 who are available to play. Given that most of these rulings have come in the past couple of days, the Celtics could be playing this lineup for multiple games.
