Boston Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak against the injury-riddled Toronto Raptors. Despite the fact that Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown had an off night for Ime Udoka’s squad, the Celtics prevailed.

Boston bounced back after losing at San Antonio on Friday night, playing for the second time this season without their best bench player, Dennis Schroder, who was ruled out due to a sprained ankle.

Head coach Ime Udoka shared an update on the German point guard, as the Celtics are going to a two-day break before the team’s next game on Wednesday.

(via Mass Live):

“It’s a single-game thing,” he said of the injury. “He rolled it pretty bad a few weeks ago, I think it against Miami, played through it, played well, especially with Jaylen being out. He pushed through it.

He did again last game and just a chance to get them some rest. But he’s done it twice now and so we wanted to give him these days, obviously with two days off after this game as well. Should be back against Philadelphia.”

The Celtics will host Philadelphia on Wednesday night in a showdown between Eastern Conference rival teams. After Sunday’s victory, Boston improved to 11-10.
