The Cleveland Cavaliers announced their starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Boston Celtics.

Cleveland will be without starting center Jarrett Allen due to an illness (not COVID-19 related), and guard Ricky Rubio will start in his place.

Rubio will be joined by Isaac Okoro, Darius Garland, Dean Wade and Evan Mobley.

The Cavs beat the Celtics 91-89 on Saturday and are looking for their third straight win in Monday’s contest.

Allen has appeared in 14 games for the Cavs so far this season. He’s been a key part to their success, as the big man is averaging 14.2 points, 10.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 69.4 percent from the field.

Cleveland is 9-5 on the season and looking to get to double-digit wins against a 6-7 Celtics team. Monday’s game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. EST.
