Report: Celtics’ Aron Baynes out for month with broken hand

Just when it appeared Celtics were coming around, they’ve lost two straight, including to the Suns last night.

That defeat included more bad news.

Celtics:

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Boston uses Al Horford (who’s banged up himself), Daniel Theis and Baynes regularly at center. Baynes primarily plays against bigger opposing centers, allowing Horford to slide to power forward, and is quite good in that role.

Now, Horford (once healthy) and Theis will have to make due in those matchups. Rookie Robert Williams can also stay in the rotation, especially if Horford remains out.
