Al Horford (calf) scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Pelicans. He's been banged up lately with a sore knee and sore calf, but he's had plenty of time off to rest and it's a great sign that he played 38 minutes tonight. Horford hit four 3-pointers for the eighth time of his career in the loss, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block. The Celtics were bullied by Anthony Davis tonight and Horford will have his hands full again on Thursday vs. Joel Embiid and the 76ers.

Horford (calf) is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Brian Robb of the Boston Sports Journal reports. Hoford sat out practice over the weekend, but rejoined the team for Monday's session and was never expected to miss any time. He'll take on his typical role Tuesday and he doesn't appear to be on any sort of restrictions, so he can be activated in both season-long leagues and DFS contests Tuesday.

Al Horford (knee) was held out of Saturday's practice as a precaution. Horford said he feels good, and with the Celtics off until Tuesday, we wouldn't expect this calf issue to be something that forces him to the sidelines. We'll throw him on the injury report just to be safe, and owners can expect to get another couple updates ahead of Tuesday's tip.

Al Horford (sore knee) returned on Thursday with 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in a resounding comeback win vs. the Sixers in London. Horford missed Saturday's game with soreness, but that absence was precautionary and gave him five full days to rest, due to Boston's trip to London. He hit 5-of-10 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs tonight, with one 3-pointer, one block and only one turnover, and looked completely fine in 35 minutes of action. He'll get another long break, too, before facing the Pelicans on Tuesday.

Horford (knee) practiced fully Tuesday and said he would play Thursday against the 76ers, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports. Horford sat out the Celtics' most-recent contest Saturday against the Nets with knee soreness, but it appears the team's lengthy time off between games afforded the big man some added recovery. The return of Horford to the starting lineup will push Aron Baynes back to the bench and result in less run for backup center Daniel Theis.
