BOSTON (WHDH) - Celtics power forward-center Al Horford will be available for the Celtics’ Game 2 against the Miami Heat. Boston currently trails 1-0 in the series.

Horford missed the Celtics’ Game 1 after being placed in the NBA’s Covid-19 Protocols. Horford originally began the day as “doubtful” to play before being upgraded to “questionable” this afternoon.

Horford, 35, is averaging 13 points and 9.4 rebounds per game during the Celtics’ playoff run. Horford has been a crucial piece for a Celtics’ defense that has been among the league’s best since the beginning of the new year.

The Celtics will look to even the series against Miami when the two teams tip off at 8:30 p.m. at the FTX Arena in Miami.
