With the league on hold for a minimum of 30 days, let’s take a look at the Boston Celtics and examine their play up to this point of the season.

With the NBA gone and the Boston Celtics off the floor for at least a month, it’ll be tough for fans around the world to fill the void that the suspension of the league created.

Especially for fans of the contending teams, nothing hurts more than enjoying a great season, only for it to be thrown off by a situation as rare as the current one.

For fans of the Boston Celtics, there may be a small silver lining. Their health issues could clear up over the extended break, and the team could see some serious improvement if and when the NBA season returns.

The team has struggled with injuries all season long, which has resulted in very few games being played at complete health. Even with that obstacle, the team finds themselves third in the Eastern Conference, behind the Toronto Raptors.

The latest on the injury list has been Jaylen Brown with a sore hamstring, and Kemba Walker has battled a knee injury, the effects of which can be seen easily in his latest performances.

The C’s have tried to rebound from last year’s uncharacteristic mess, and they’ve done it quite successfully.

Early season doubts were laid to rest within the first month, and although the team’s latest string of games hasn’t been their best, things would be much better if they were operating at full health.

With the season still fresh in everyone’s mind, it’s time to do an evaluation of the Boston Celtics, consisting of their offensive game, defensive game, and an overall grade that spans all aspects of the game of basketball.
