Good afternoon from Boston. Nets-Celtics tip in 15. Kyrie Irving is back to face his former team with KD. First game they’ve played together since Jan. 12. Garden isn’t as full as I’d have hoped.

Fun fact*…Grant Williams has dropped to 4th in the NBA in 3-point shooting, but if he makes his first one this afternoon…he jumps to 44.92%..which would lead the league.

The Celtics have upgraded Jaylen Brown to available following his pre-game workout. – 12:12 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash admits it might be tricky getting Ben Simmons, a unique player, to fit without a ton of time. But because of all the things Ben does well, Nash doesn’t think it will be an overly mechanical process with square pegs and round holes.

Ime Udoka was asked pregame if it would be a challenge to have to change game plans multiple times during a series if Kyrie Irving is still unable to play in home games.

“No,” Udoka said. “The difficulty is guarding him. So, if he’s out, it’s fine by me.” – 11:51 AM John Karalis @John_Karalis

Seth Curry (ankle) is available for the Nets today. – 11:42 AM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Steve Nash said he never had any COVID symptoms during his time out. His numbers were high but it was really just waiting it out. #Nets – 11:32 AM Brian Robb @BrianTRobb

Nik Stauskas picked the Celtics over several other teams pursuing him according to Ime Udoka. Boston’s injury situation could give him an opportunity early on masslive.com/celtics/2022/0… – 11:27 AM Boston Celtics @celtics

Coach Udoka says Jayson Tatum’s versatility and competitiveness on the defensive end shouldn’t be overlooked: “He’s taken on any challenge.” – 11:24 AM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Nets say Seth Curry is available. – 11:24 AM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Ime Udoka said Boston was looking at signing Nik Stauskas before Aaron Nesmith got hurt. Udoka said the Celtics are “always looking at available shooters” and liked Stauskas because of that. Boston feels fortunate to have gotten Stauskas because other teams were interested too. – 11:23 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Seth Curry is upgraded to available today for the #Nets against the #Celtics. – 11:22 AM Jay King @ByJayKing

Jaylen Brown will test out his ankle prior to tip-off and will be a gametime decision, per Coach Udoka. – 11:19 AM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Ime Udoka says it’s not about the Nets offensive sets because “they’re not running anything complicated.” Said dealing with Brooklyn is about their talent. – 11:19 AM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Derrick White will get the start if Jaylen Brown can’t go – 11:19 AM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Ime Udoka said that Aaron Nesmith had more significant swelling in his sprained ankle than Jaylen Brown did with his. Udoka said that will keep Nesmith out longer than Brown is expected to be. – 11:19 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Jaylen Brown is going to get tested and go through pregame warmups according to Ime Udoka. Status still up in the air vs the #Nets. #Celtics – 11:19 AM Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

Jaylen Brown is going to test his ankle sprain before the game and see if he can play, Ime Udoka says. Swelling has gone down and Udoka says he’s hoping for some good news.

Aaron Nesmith is out with his own ankle sprain, one Udoka said is going to keep him out longer than Brown. – 11:18 AM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

There’s no decision on Jaylen Brown’s availability tonight, but the Celtics have upgraded him to questionable with an ankle injury. – 11:18 AM Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA

Ime Udoka says Jaylen Brown is testing out his right ankle sprain pregame to see if he can play today. Swelling has gone down but there will be a bit of pain tolerance.

Aaron Nesmith had more significant swelling and will “be out for a longer period of time, for sure.” – 11:18 AM Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP

Jaylen Brown will “test it” pre-game according to Ime Udoka, he’ll be the proverbial gametime decision for this afternoon against the Nets. – 11:17 AM Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe

Jaylen Brown will test his right ankle prior to the game. Gametime decision. #Celtics – 11:17 AM Jay King @ByJayKing
