C. Felicio - PF
Felicio (ankle) will be active for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Kelly Crull of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Felicio sat out Thursday's opener due to a sprained ankle. Even though he's available Saturday, he may not be part of the rotation.
Added 2:43 pm (EST)
Ayton (ankle) was upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Nuggets after going through morning shootaround, Evan Sidery of The Bright Side and LockedOnSuns reports.
Ayton rolled his ankle Friday, but has avoided anything serious. During his debut, he posted 18 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes.
Added 2:34 pm (EST)
L. Nance Jr. - SF
Nance (ankle), according to coach Tyronn Lue, was "moving around fine" at Saturday's practice, Spencer Davies of BBallInsiders reports.
An official status for Nance hasn't been given, but he should be considered questionable for Sunday's game until further notice. His potential return could mean fewer minutes for Ante Zizic.
Added 2:30 pm (EST)
S. Dekker - SF
Dekker (head), according to coach Tyronn Lue, is "good" and avoided a concussion, Spencer Davies of BBallInsiders reports.
It appears Dekker will be available for Sunday's game against Atlanta, though an official confirmation has yet to be provided. More information may arrive after Sunday's morning shootaround.
Added 2:27 pm (EST)
Ayton (ankle) participated in parts of shootaround Saturday and remains questionable to play against the Nuggets, TJ McBride of Mile High Sports reports.
Ayton continues to nurse a rolled ankle, but the Suns are hoping he'll be able to take the floor Saturday night. His participation in shootaround is an encouraging development, but a final call likely won't be made until closer to game-time.
Added 2:13 pm (EST)
C. Lee - SG
Lee (neck) will not play Saturday against the Celtics.
The Knicks' game notes list the wing as out with the same neck injury that's already cost him two games. Continue to consider Lee questionable on a game-to-game basis going forward.
Added 2:02 pm (EST)
G. Hayward - SF
Hayward is out for Saturday's game against the Knicks in order to rest his left ankle, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
The Celtics will understandably exercise caution with Hayward, who missed essentially all of last year due to a gruesome ankle injury, on an early season back-to-back. His absence could afford Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart expanded usage.
Added 1:40 pm (EST)
D. Wright - PG
Wright (thigh) is out for Saturday's contest against the Wizards, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Wright is nursing a strained left adductor, which is limiting him enough to keep him from taking the floor Saturday. In his stead, Fred VanVleet should see expanded usage.
