Tacko Fall OUT with eye irritation

Tacko Falls due to eye irritation

Boston Celtics big man Daniel Theis returns to action for the Celtics, making his preseason debut after missing Tuesday’s opening loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, and with it, a return to the starting lineup.

Second-year wing Javonte Green will get a second start, and the rest of the starters from the Philly friendly will remain the same, though two-way center Tacko Fall will sit with an irritated eye. Speaking with the media ahead of the game, coach Brad Stevens had noted most players will get a similar range of minutes to what they had in the 76ers preseason loss on Tuesday.

The Celtics coach did not pull punches when he explained what the focus would be, however.

“We need to get good work in from a conditioning standpoint and clean some things up from the other night,” he said bluntly.

Boston will be facing former star point guard at TD Garden for the first time since he left in free agency to join Brooklyn, and will have a healthy Kevin Durant in tow, just his second game of pro basketball since tearing his achilles tendon more than a season ago.

“Kevin has been one of the great players of this generation, and Kyrie is super special,” reflected Stevens, who holds the Celtics’ Atlantic Division foe in high regard.

“They’re super deep. I like their additions in the offseason adding Landry Shamet and Jeff Green,” he added.
