PHILADELPHIA — The Boston Celtics' frontcourt will remain significantly depleted courtesy of injuries to Kris Humphries (knee) and Jared Sullinger (ankle) that have yet to heal enough for their return.

"Those guys (Humphries and Sullinger) are both out," Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said prior to the team's shoot-around at The Palestra on the University of Penn's campus. "Jared's ankle is still swollen, hasn't gotten much better."

Boston will also be without Jerryd Bayless who suffered a right knee injury on Friday against Charlotte.

He did not travel with the team to Cleveland and is not with them currently in Philadelphia.

Stevens said Bayless is still "stiff and sore the last time I talked to him via text, which was (Sunday)," Stevens said.

And it remains to be seen if Rajon Rondo (shin) will play. He was a last-minute scratch in Friday's win over Charlotte, and did not play the following night in Cleveland.

He remains a game-time decision as to whether he'll play tonight.
