Kris Humphries (knee) is unlikely to play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

Rondo to start tonight; Sullinger, Humphries and Bayless likely done for season

Rajon Rondo warmed up prior to tonight's game with something different to report. After missing the last two games with a bruised left shin, the Celtics point guard pronounced himself ready to go tonight against the Sixers.The same can't be said of Kris Humphries (sore knee), Jared Sullinger and Jerryd Bayless. All three, according to Celtics coach Brad Stevens, are likely done for the season, with the season finale against Washington a layup away on Wednesday night at 8.

Kris Humphries likely out for the season - Kris Humphries (F/C) Boston Celtics

Kris Humphries (knee) is unlikely to play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

Pregame: Humphries out, too

Add Kris Humphries to the list of unavailable bodies on Saturday for the Boston Celtics. Humphries tried to warm up in Cleveland, but his ailing knee won't allow him to go. Humphries eased him back into action on Friday night, this after missing the previous two games with right knee tendinitis. The knee, which he says will only improve with extended time off, simply isn't healthy enough to play on consecutive nights. That means that the Celtics are without Humphries, Rajon Rondo (left shin), Jared Sullinger (left ankle), and Jerryd Bayless (right knee).

Rondo, Bayless, Sullinger, Humphries all out, but not shut down

On some teams in this situation, and at this point in the season, the act of shutting down a player due to nagging injuries would be a matter of course.But Brad Stevens doesn’t run those teams. Tonight's scratches against Cleveland, with only two games left in the season, could very easily be on the floor tomorrow night in Philadelphia. Kris Humphries, still striggling with knee soreness, was a game-time scratch.

Having settled in with Celtics, Kris Humphries may want to stick around

Having settled in with Celtics, Kris Humphries may want to stick around

The trip was exhausting and, for Kris Humphries, depressing.Mikhail Prokhorov bought the New Jersey Nets, and as a kickoff to the 2010 exhibition season, the oligarch owner flew his new team to Moscow for practice. Games in Beijing and Shanghai followed.And Humphries was buried. The Nets had traded for Troy Murphy, drafted Derrick Favors, and even added the antiquarian Joe Smith. That left Humphries as the fourth power forward.

Despite record, Stevens will not shut down injured players

Brad Stevens wants his players to play out the string. Avery Bradley has a strained Achillies.  Jared Sullinger has a deep thigh bruise.  Kris Humphries has a strained right patella tendon. Given the fact that the Celtics are eliminated from the playoffs, it is logical to ask if Stevens would consider simply shutting down these guys and letting the rest of the squad play out the season. Nope.  It sounds like Bradley and Sullinger are looking to play on Wednesday.  Humphries is going to be out for at least the next two games but if he can go, he'll go.

Humphries (knee) set for MRI

Boston Celtics forward/center Kris Humphries will undergo an MRI on an ailing right knee on Wednesday and will not accompany the team on its trip to play the Atlanta Hawks. Humphries sat out Saturday's loss in Detroit with what the team termed a strained right patella tendon. He's battled knee issues at times this season and the current issue has lingered. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said it was too early to know if the injury will force the team to shut down Humphries for the remainder of the season.

Humphries won't travel because of knee injury

Humphries won't travel because of knee injury

The Celtics have 6 more games on tap, but Kris Humphries may have played his last. Not to mention it could have been his last as a Celtic with his pending free agency this summer. CSNNEThis is just what the Boston Celtics need - another player goes down with an injury.Boston big man Kris Humphries will not travel with the team for Saturday night's game at Detroit because of patella tendinitis in his right knee.This injury might the reason Humphries' production has tailed off lately, with the most noticeable dip being his rebounding.In Boston's last five games, he has averaged 8.6 points and...

Notebook: Humphries also out vs. Detroit

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics will be without three starters on Saturday night in Detroit as Kris Humphries is the latest scratch due to right knee tendonitis. Humphries started Friday's 111-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, but played only 15 ½ minutes and did not start the second half. Humphries did not travel with the team and joins the backcourt tandem of Rajon Rondo (rest) and Avery Bradley (right Achilles strain) on the inactive list for Saturday's tail end of a back-to-back against the Pistons.

Would you rather: re-sign Kris Humphries or give those minutes to a developing Kelly Olynyk?

Would you rather: re-sign Kris Humphries or give those minutes to a developing Kelly Olynyk?

In yesterday's visit with The Sports Hub's Toucher & Rich, Danny Ainge talked about the idea of bringing back Kris Humphries next season. For what it's worth, he said they have had "a few conversations." That's nothing definitive, but there's a mutual interest there.  The team likes him and Hump has mentioned in the past that he'd like to return to Boston.  He understands the where the team is at and seems willing to be part of the rebuild process.  Who would have thought eight months ago that it would be Humphries and not the elder statesman Keith Bogans or the up-and-coming MarShon...
