The Boston Celtics will be without three key players against the Orlando Magic, as Jaylen Brown, Enes Kanter and Jayson Tatum have all been ruled out with separate injuries.

Brown was the last of the three players to be ruled out for the game, as he sprained his right ankle on Jan. 20.

Kanter has a right hip contusion he suffered on Jan. 22.

He will also miss the team’s next game on Jan. 26 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Without Kanter, the Celtics announced that they recalled Tacko Fall from the G League for extra depth in the frontcourt.

Tatum suffered a right groin strain on Jan. 22, but said he feels better, as his MRI came back clean.

As a result from these injuries, Kemba Walker and Gordon Hayward will have more playmaking responsibilities and Daniel Theis should see a lot of minutes at center.
