Deandre Ayton came back from injury on March 9 and led the Portland Trail Blazers to a win over the Toronto Raptors with a monster night, finishing with 30 points and 19 rebounds. Scoot Henderson also returned and scored 13 points while dishing out 5 assists despite being on a minutes restriction.

Will head coach Chauncey Billups get another starter back tonight as his team faces the Boston Celtics?

Is Jerami Grant playing tonight?

Ayton and Henderson have no injury designation, so it appears things went smoothly for them in the win over Toronto.

Grant, who's missed the Blazers last two games with hamstring soreness, is listed on Portland's injury report as questionable. He'll be a game-time decision. With Jabari Walker also out, Matisse Thybulle, Rayan Rupert and Kris Murray would again get extended run if Grant can't play.

Portland is still without Malcolm Brogdon, who's dealing with elbow tendonitis.

The Celtics, meanwhile, owners of the best record in the NBA by 4.5 games entering tonight, will be without a pair of key starters themselves.
