Al Horford to sit out rest of season

Horford, under contract for two more seasons, will remain a member of the Thunder and will continue to train at the team’s facility. Coach Mark Daigneault said Horford is unlikely to travel for away games. “When I arrived, I understood the direction of the team, we had a great individual plan in place for me, and I feel like as a result I’ve played really good basketball for the Thunder,” Horford said in a statement. “At the same time, I know what it’s like to be a young, aspiring player, and at this point in the season I understand how important playing meaningful minutes is for their careers and their development.”

Boston Celtics center Al Horford will miss “at least a few games” after being diagnosed with patellofemoral pain syndrome in his left knee, coach Brad Stevens said Wednesday. The Celtics also said Gordon Hayward, who has been dealing with an illness, won’t play Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards. The 32-year-old Horford, who is averaging 12.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game for the Celtics this season, has missed the past two games after a 19-point, 12-rebound performance against the New York Knicks on Thursday. “This is one of those things that it just wasn’t getting better,” Horford said, according to the Celtics’ official Twitter account.
