The sore neck injury that limited Jeff Green in Boston's 99-90 loss to Toronto on Wednesday should not be an issue tonight according to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.

"He's much better today," Stevens told reporters prior to tonight's game against the Raptors. "He had a different pep in his step today."

In the loss to Toronto on Wednesday, Green was 3-for-9 shooting and finished with just six points - more than 10 below his team-leading average this season.

"He tried to play through it," Stevens said. "He's played in every game this season. That's important to him. But he wasn't right (health-wise). It's good that he's feeling better."

In addition to Green, Stevens said the Celtics will field the same starting unit of Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley with Brandon Bass and Kris Humphries in the frontcourt.
