BOSTON - The starting lineup for the Celtics is as unpredictable now as it was to start the season.

Prior to Boston's preseason finale against Brooklyn, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace and Kelly Olynyk would start.

And the fifth starter would be Vitor Faverani, depending on how his back felt.

"I feel OK," Faverani told CSNNE.com. "Whatever coach wants me to do."

Still, the final call will be made by the team's medical officials on whether the 6-foot-10 rookie will play.

This would be Faverani's first NBA start.
