Semi Ojeleye Stars For Boston Celtics

Fast-rising National Basketball Association (NBA) youngster, Semi Ojeleye has taken another step forward in his progression at Bpsoont Celtic, as he was involved in yet another key game for the franchise.

Ojeleye got his latest opportunity to shine, as a spate of injuries forced Celtics to go with another new starting lineup.

Joining the usual starters Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum were Gordon Hayward and Ojeleye against Milwaukee Bucks.

The insertion of Ojeleye in the starting lineup came with a hot tip of him doing the best job of any Celtic when it comes to defending against the Bucks Nigerian-born All-Star, Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Having Hayward back in the starting unit provides Boston with another versatile play-maker to help the first unit offensively.

Boston are without Al Horford (patellofemoral pain syndrome, left knee), Aron Baynes (fractured fourth metacarpal, right hand) and Marcus Morris (knee soreness).

Horford and Morris are starters while Baynes is one of the first big stars off the bench, playing behind Horford.

The Celtics did get a bit of good news on the injury front with Guerschon Yabusele (right ankle sprain) returning to the active roster after missing the last five games.
