We have a bit of a heavier slate of games for Tuesday night in the NBA. The marquee matchup is between two of the top teams in each conference: the Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz. Both teams will be missing a few key players, however. Jaylen Brown is dealing with a knee injury and is questionable, while Mike Conley has already been ruled out due to a hamstring injury. Damian Lillard is off the injury report for the Blazers and is expected to return to the lineup. Other than that, we’ll keep an eye on the Nets, who will be without Kevin Durant again and could rest another superstar.
Let’s take a look at lineups for Tuesday night.
