BOSTON: LAST SEASON: 55-27, lost in Eastern Conference finals.
COACH: Brad Stevens (sixth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jaylen Brown (14.5 ppg), G Kyrie Irving (24.4 ppg), F Jayson Tatum (13.9 ppg), F Gordon Hayward (2.0 ppg; played one game last season), C Al Horford (12.9 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Shane Larkin, C Greg Monroe
KEY ADDITIONS: F Robert Williams, G Brad Wanamaker, G P.J. Dozier
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All eyes are on Hayward coming off his surgery and rehab from the gruesome left ankle injury he suffered in the season opener last season. After nearly a year away from playing 5-on-5 basketball, he says he's back to 100 percent. The same is true for point guard Kyrie Irving following a pair of surgeries on his left knee that caused him to miss the end of the regular season and playoffs. Irving's also pledged his allegiance to Boston, saying recently that he intended to re-sign with the Celtics in 2019.
OUTLOOK: With LeBron James now in the Western Conference, the Celtics enter this season as the presumptive favorites in the East. The injuries to Hayward and Irving gave Brown and Tatum a chance to shine and both young emerged as budding stars. After re-signing reserve guard Marcus Smart, Boston enters the season with a roster that's nearly fully intact from a year ago. The Celtics were one of the league's top defensive teams a last season and are expected to be there again under the defensive-minded Stevens. The challenge for the sixth-year
COACH will be getting this talented group to share the ball.
CHARLOTTE: LAST SEASON: 36-46, missed playoffs.
COACH: James Borrego (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kemba Walker (22.1 ppg), G Jeremy Lamb (12.9 ppg), G Nicolas Batum (11.6 ppg), F Marvin Williams (9.5 ppg), C Cody Zeller (7.6 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Dwight Howard, G Treveon Graham
KEY ADDITIONS: G Tony Parker, C Bismack Biyombo, F Miles Bridges
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Hornets added 17-year veteran Parker to bolster their second team and to play down the stretch of tight games alongside Walker, a two-time All-Star and the team's best player. Lamb is expected to replace former No. 2 overall pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in the starting lineup, although second-year guard Malik Monk could push him for that job. Zeller regains his starting job after Howard was traded, a move that may prove to be addition by subtraction. Borrego is expecting big things from Batum, who should have a bounce back season playing with close friend and fellow Frenchman Parker.
OUTLOOK: The Hornets should compete for a playoff spot in the East, where mediocrity reigns. Their starting lineup isn't any better than it was a year ago, but they're much deeper this season and there shouldn't be as much drop off as last season when it comes to the second team. Charlotte will play an up-tempo game under Borrego, a former assistant with the Spurs. In fact, the Hornets have been working with a 12-second shot clock in practice to get used to playing at a faster pace. Rebounding could be an issue with Howard gone.
Struggling Hornets still optimistic as Celtics await

The Charlotte Hornets, sinking in the Eastern Conference playoff chase, decided to shake things up.

Coach James Borrego, his team having won just four of its past 15 games, went with a more youthful look Thursday night, when the Hornets responded with a 113-106 home victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Perhaps he will try the same strategy Saturday when Charlotte (32-39) plays host to the Boston Celtics (43-29).

"Right now, I'm taking it in one-game segments," Borrego said. "Right now, I like that lineup. I wanted to take a look at it."

That lineup included second-year player Dwayne Bacon at guard in place of 11th-year pro Nic Batum while continuing to feature rookie forward Miles Bridges, who posted his first career double-double (11 points, 12 rebounds).

Meanwhile, center Willy Hernangomez (only four appearances since Feb. 2) played 23 minutes off the bench, Malik Monk saw his second-most minutes (19) in more than a month and rookie point guard Devonte' Graham played for only the fourth time in more than a month.

"This isn't throw in the towel, we're out of the playoffs," Borrego said after the game.

"There is none of that going on right now. No. 1, we're trying to win every single game, just like we did tonight. We're not holding back. But I want to take a look at some different combinations and some different bodies out there, and I think that's what we're doing with this lineup change."

Charlotte's victory Thursday night pulled it within three games of the Miami Heat for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.

The Celtics are mostly locked into a first-round 4-5 matchup against Indiana, although home court will be up for grabs down the stretch.

Boston star guard Kyrie Irving, who has scored at least 30 points in a career-high four consecutive games, has talked about sitting out some games to rest for the playoffs, so load management and health will be big topics for the Celtics in the final 10 games, with health taking priority over seeding.

"We don't want to look past these 10 games," said guard Terry Rozier, "but we're obviously getting prepared for the playoffs. Some guys may rest, but we got to get in that mindset right now. Once the playoffs are here, it's like, there are no taking steps back. We got to be ready from out the gate; fresh out the gate."

Forward Gordon Hayward has missed two games while in concussion protocol, although he is likely to return Saturday at Charlotte, or Sunday at home against the San Antonio Spurs, president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Thursday in his weekly radio appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston.

Ainge also seemed positive about center Aron Baynes, who suffered a Grade 2 ankle sprain in Wednesday's loss at Philadelphia. Baynes is critical to Boston's defense.

"I don't think it's going to be three weeks, but I think that it's just a day-to-day injury," Ainge said on radio. "We'll obviously be careful. We need everybody healthy by playoffs."

Boston is 2-1 against Charlotte this season, the most recent game a 126-94 home win for the Celtics on Jan. 30, when Irving was sitting out due to a hip injury.
