Horford produced 18 points (7-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists from 35 minutes in Thursday's 92-88 win over the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

Horford delivered his sixth double-double of the season, increasing his rebounds per game to 9.0 from 6.8 last season. More impressive was Horford's help out defense which aided in keeping the top scoring Warriors to a season low of only 88 points. Big Al and Boston hope to extend their 14-game winning streak Saturday in Atlanta.

Horford delivered an efficient 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 11 rebounds and three assists over 30 minutes in Tuesday's 109-102 win in Brooklyn.

EDGE Analysis

Horford has filled the void left by Gordon Hayward's season-ending injury, improving his scoring, rebounding and shooting percentages over last year's production. Big Al seems to have a natural chemistry with new Celtic point guard Kyrie Irving. The two stars run the pick and roll well, especially with Horford continuing to improve his outside shooting (note the career high 1.5 made threes per game). Boston has now won 13 games in a row, though the streak will be in jeopardy Thursday night versus the Warriors.

Horford totaled 21 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists, three rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes during a 95-94 win over the Raptors on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

In his return from a two-game absence, Horford (concussion) was fantastic, as he led the team in scoring in the win. He only missed one shot in an incredibly efficient display in which he also handed out four dimes. The only down side to the effort was the three rebounds marked a season low.

Horford (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Raptors, Celtics radio play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

EDGE Analysis

Horford was given a probable designation heading into Sunday, so this was the expected move all along. He'll likely return to the starting lineup after a two-game layoff and doesn't appear to be dealing with any sort of restrictions. With Horford expected back in the top unit, look for Aron Baynes to move to a bench role in the corresponding move.

Horford (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against Toronto, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Horford was held out of a second straight game Friday versus Charlotte, but all signs point to the big man returning to action following an off day Saturday. A two-game absence would be relatively palatable for fantasy owners, considering Horford has missed significant time due to concussions in the past.

Horford (concussion) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets, voice of the Boston Celtics Sean Grande reports.

EDGE Analysis

After some back and forth about Horford's availability coming into the contest, he's ultimately been ruled out. In his stead, it's likely that Aron Baynes will draw another start. Horford will continue to be evaluated to determine his progress and should be considered day-to-day until further word emerges.

Horford (concussion) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets.

EDGE Analysis

Horford was originally ruled out for Friday's contest, but it looks like the center may have made some progress in the last day that would suggest otherwise. Horford needs to be free of concussion symptoms for at least 24 hours in order to be cleared to play, so expect the big man to now be a game-time decision for Friday night's game.

Horford (concussion) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston, general manager Danny Ainge said Horford's concussion isn't as bad as the one that sidelined him nine games last season, though it appears Horford is still set to miss some time. Friday will mark his second straight absence and it remains unclear if Horford will be cleared for Sunday's tilt with the Raptors either. In the meantime, look for Aron Baynes to pick up another start at center after posting an impressive 21 points, eight rebounds and three assists in relief on Wednesday.

Horford has entered the NBA's concussion protocol and will be sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Horford took a shot to the head during Monday's game and is seemingly showing signs of a possible concussion. More information on how long the injury will last should emerge within the next few days. In the meantime, however, it seems likely that reserve center Aron Baynes will be the main beneficiary of Horford's absence. Guerschon Yabusele and Daniel Theis should also see additional run off the pine.

Horford finished with 15 points (5-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists and one block across 33 minutes during Monday's 110-107 win over the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

Horford has been rebounding much better this season, never having slipped below six boards on any given night. Last year, he averaged just 6.8 rebounds per contest. He's also continued to pass well, making him a low-profile triple-double threat.
