The Celtics will lose at least two, and in some cases three, key players when they play against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday at 10 pm.

For each team, both Jaylen Brown (tension of the right hamstring) and Al Horford (stiffness of the waist) appear, and Romeo Langford (sprain of the right ankle) is suspicious.

Brown was unable to play Friday’s match against Utah Jazz for the same reason. He missed 10 of the Celtics’ last 15 games and played 13 of the 24 games of the season (including Saturday).

Horford scored 21 points on Friday, but the Celtics seem to be cautious back-to-back on the streets on the second night. He has played 20 out of 24 games and is relatively durable overall.

Langford, who played jazz for 11 minutes, played 18 out of 24 games. He hurt his ankle against Utah and as a result missed the second half.

The Blazers include superstar Damian Lillard (abdominal tendonopathy-injury management) and role players Anfernee Simons (right ankle sprain) and Nassir Little (left ankle sprain). There is a possibility of Guard Norman Powell (nasal fracture).

The Celtics have been 6-4 in the last 10 times, 12-11 overall, and are currently 9th in the improved Eastern Conference.
