Celtics forward Al Horford has been stealing glances of the team’s summer league games when he is able, and he has been especially intrigued by rookie forward Jayson Tatum. “I’ve been impressed with his ability to just score on isolations,” Horford said in a telephone interview. “Coming into the NBA — you can do it at a high school or college level — but the fact that he is so comfortable in those positions, I’m very impressed by it. And, I mean, he’s only 19 years old, and he’s going to keep getting better, so I was very impressed with him, and the way he can shoot the ball.”
After the Celtics lost to the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals, Ainge said that Horford had been playing through nagging elbow pain since suffering a sprain in March. The forward says he feels better now, though, and is looking forward to starting this possibility-filled season. “I’m doing good,” Horford said. “The time off always helps. I’m doing well, just working. I’m trying to get better, get stronger.”
Storyline: Al Horford Injury
Millsap was the last remaining starter from the Hawks’ 60-win Eastern Conference final team from 2014-15. Just two years after the franchise-record run, Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Horford and now Millsap are gone. The Hawks received only at first-round pick for Teague (which turned into Taurean Prince) and a 2019 protected first-round pick from the Cavaliers for Korver. Carroll signed with the Raptors as an unrestricted free agent in 2015.
