The Celtics could get one of their leaders back for Friday's game against the Pacers.

While Jaylen Brown has once again been ruled out, Marcus Morris has been upgraded from out to questionable for Friday's matchup in Indianapolis.

This will be Brown's third straight game missed with a back injury suffered right before shoot-around Monday morning, but is not expected to be a long-term thing. Morris missed Wednesday's game in Miami with a knee injury.

Friday's game is important as it could potentially decide home court advantage in the playoffs if the two teams were to stay as the No. 4 and 5 seeds. They are currently tied at 47-32 on the year.
