Top Al Horford News

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Not listed on injury report

    Horford (back) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game in Sacramento, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Horford sat out the second leg of a back-to-back Saturday, but he'll return to the floor for Tuesday's game, which will likely result in Blake Griffin heading back to the second unit. The Celtics do not have a back-to-back set during Week 22, so Horford should be available for all three of Boston's games.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Ruled out Saturday

    Horford (back) will not play in Saturday's game against the Jazz, Keith Smith of reports.

    Horford teased fantasy managers by saying there was "definitely a possibility" he would play in Saturday's game, but he will wind up on the sidelines due to back soreness. Horford has not played both ends of a back-to-back set this season for Boston, and his absence should allow for Blake Griffin, Grant Williams and Mike Muscala to see expanded roles. Horford appears likely to be back in action Tuesday against Sacramento.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Could play Saturday

    Horford said there's "definitely a possibility" he plays in Saturday's closing leg of a back-to-back set against the Jazz, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Horford has sat out at least one leg of every back-to-back this season but indicated Friday that he might suit up for Saturday's tilt. Although his statement is encouraging, fantasy managers should keep an eye out for the Celtics' initial injury report for a better idea of Horford's availability.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Quietly churning out value

    Horford finished Wednesday's 104-102 win over the Timberwolves with 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Horford is still usually a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end for the Celtics whenever he's on the court, but his better-than-average passing skills for a big man and ability to contribute in the defensive columns continue to make him a quality fantasy option in category leagues. He's been a top-75 player in nine-category leagues on a per-game basis this season, and his value has risen higher over the past two weeks while the Celtics have been without frontcourt mate Robert Williams (hamstring). While spending more time at center sans Williams over the past six games, Horford is averaging 10.8 points (on 50 percent shooting from the field), 6.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 2.8 three-pointers, 1.5 blocks and 0.7 steals in 33.2 minutes.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Solid efficiency in win

    Horford contributed 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds and five assists across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 115-93 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Even with Robert Williams (hamstring) sidelined, Horford had his playing time capped Wednesday, but that was largely a byproduct of the blowout. He continued his run of elevated efficiency during his limited time on the court, and he's now converting at a 58.6 percent clip from the field and 62.5 percent from three-point range over his last six games. Regression is almost certainly coming for Horford, but fantasy managers should continue to enjoy the hot offensive run for as long as it lasts.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Off injury report

    Horford (back) is available for Wednesday's matchup against the Trail Blazers.

    Horford sat out the second half of the Celtics' back-to-back set Monday. With Robert Williams (hamstring) out, Horford should continue to play an elevated role, and he's found his stride over the past eight games, averaging 13.9 points on 57/59/80 shooting, 7.4 boards and 3.3 assists in 33.1 minutes.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Ruled out Monday

    Horford (back) is out Monday against the Cavaliers.

    This was always the most likely situation for Horford after he played 46 minutes Sunday night. Grant Williams is an exciting streaming option Monday, and we could see guys like Sam Hauser, Luke Kornet and Mike Muscala get extended opportunity as well, with Robert Williams (hamstring) and Jayson Tatum (knee) also sidelined.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Plays 46 minutes in 2OT loss

    Horford provided 20 points (7-15 FG, 6-10 3Pt), 14 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal across 46 minutes during Sunday's 131-129 double-overtime loss to New York.

    The 36-year-old veteran was forced to play big minutes due to the absence of Robert Williams (hamstring) and the long two-overtime contest. Big Al's end-of-game, corner three attempted game-winner came up short. One could tell he was running on fumes. Boston has now lost three of its last four. Despite Boston's recent trade for Mike Muscala, this game showed the Celtics are still thin in the frontcourt. Monday's game at Cleveland will be the second of a back-to-back, which is when Boston has traditionally given Horford the night off.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Delivers double-double in win

    Horford produced 23 points (8-10 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block over 33 minutes during Wednesday's 117-113 victory over the Cavaliers.

    Horford continues to produce despite being one of the most veteran players in the league. He had an impressive performance Wednesday while going up against one of the best big men duos in Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley. The 23-point output was a season-high mark for Horford, and he ended just one rebound shy of tying his season-best mark in that category.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Slow night on glass

    Horford ended with 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over 28 minutes during Monday's 109-94 loss to the Knicks.

    Horford was efficient as a scorer and has been of late, knocking down 55.0 percent of his shots from the field and 51.7 percent from deep over his last five appearances. However, he was uncharacteristically silenced on the boards, matching a season-low output with only two and adding just a single assist, dropping his overall fantasy impact. He added just four rebounds the only other time he faced the Knicks, falling below his 6.1 boards-per-game average in both, so there's reason to believe matchup played a factor on that front.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Cleared for Wednesday

    Horford (knee) is available for Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons, John Karalis of reports.

    Knee inflammation caused Horford to miss three of the past four games, but he'll be fine for the Celtics' final tilt before the All-Star break. Across his past 10 appearances, the veteran has averaged 8.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 31.8 minutes.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Won't play Tuesday

    Horford (knee) is out Tuesday at Milwaukee, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

    Knee inflammation will keep the center out for the third time in four games, and the Celtics have just one more game before the All-Star break. However, Robert Williams (ankle) will be available Tuesday, and Horford plans to play Wednesday against the Pistons.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Now questionable

    Horford is questionable for Tuesday's matchup against Milwaukee due to right knee swelling, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Horford was a late addition to the injury report Tuesday afternoon and could be sidelined for the third time over Boston's past four games. Robert Williams (ankle) is also listed as questionable, while Jayson Tatum (illness), Jaylen Brown (face) and Marcus Smart (ankle) have already been ruled out, so the Celtics may not have one regular starter in their first five against the Bucks, who are only 1.5 games back of Boston for first place in the East.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Delivers big game in return

    Horford (knee) finished Sunday's 119-109 win over the Grizzlies with 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one block in 30 minutes.

    Back in action following a two-game absence due to an inflamed right knee, Horford came through with one of his better fantasy performances since the calendar flipped to 2023. Though he's moved into more of a tertiary role on the offensive end in his age-36 season, Horford could notice a mild boost in usage over the Celtics' final two games before the All-Star break with Boston potentially without the services of Jaylen Brown (face), Marcus Smart (ankle) and Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles), all of whom sat out Sunday. Over the long haul, however, Horford will deliver most of his value in the blocks and three-pointers category rather than in the scoring column.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Starting against Memphis

    Horford (knee) is starting Sunday against the Grizzlies, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    As expected, Horford starts in his return, and Grant Williams moves back to the bench as a result. The veteran Horford is averaging 9.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game this season while logging 30.8 minutes per contest, and he is not expected a have his minutes restricted following a two-game absence due to right knee inflammation.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Absent from injury report

    Horford (knee) will be available for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Horford has missed a pair of contests with right knee inflammation but has been given the green light ahead of Sunday's tilt. His return will likely push Grant Williams back to the second unit.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Won't play Friday

    Horford (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets, John Karalis of reports.

    Horford was initially probable for Friday's matchup but was downgraded to questionable before being ruled out for a second consecutive game. Grant Williams will presumably start once again.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Downgraded to questionable

    Horford (knee) was downgraded to questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets.

    Horford was initially expected to play Friday after sitting out Wednesday's surprise win over the 76ers, but now things are less clear. However, Robert Williams is available, shoring up the Celtics' frontline. Luke Kornet and Blake Griffin could see more action if Horford is sidelined.
