Joel Embiid (left knee maintenance) isn't on the injury report for Tuesday's game vs. Boston. Embiid sat out Sunday's game but that was purely a precaution in the second half of a back-to-back set. If fantasy managers survived without him due to the left knee bruise, they're now well-positioned with fantasy playoffs just about underway in most leagues.

Evan Fournier hit 5-of-9 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers, and 3-of-3 free throws for 17 points, six assists, two steals, one block, and one turnover in a win over the Hornets. After missing all 10 of his shots in his Celtics debut, Fournier has quickly found his rhythm. At one point he made 11 shots in a row stretching back to his last game. In his last two games combined, he's made 11-of-16 3-point shots and scored 40 points. It's unlikely he continues to shoot at this ridiculous rate, but it's great news he's catching on so quickly.

On the other side, the Celtics have covered in five of their last seven games overall and are 6-2 against the number in their last eight home games when facing an opponent that has a winning road record. Boston is also 19-7 at the betting window in their last 26 games as a home dog and 5-2 ATS in its last seven games playing on one day of rest.
