Top Luke Kornet News

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Returning to Boston

    Kornet agreed to a one-year deal with the Celtics on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Kornet bounced back during his second full season with the Celtics in 2023-24, averaging 5.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.6 minutes per game over 63 regular-season appearances. The 28-year-old will remain with the Celtics for the 2024-25 campaign and will likely be in store for a similar role as a depth option in the frontcourt, though he might get a little extra run while Kristaps Porzingis recovers from a foot injury.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Good to go

    Kornet (wrist) will play in Monday's Game 4 against Indiana, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Kornet was spotted warming up with tape on his injured left wrist prior to tipoff, and he's been cleared to give it a go. He logged 13 minutes in Game 1 before suffering the wrist injury in Game 2 and should see reserve minutes again Monday night behind Al Horford.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Questionable for Monday

    Kornet (wrist) is questionable for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Pacers on Monday, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Kornet suffered a sprained left wrist early in Game 2 against Indiana and carried a doubtful tag prior to Game 3 before being officially held out. The questionable tag is a slight upgrade, but with the Celtics up 3-0, there is no indication they will risk further injury to the 28-year-old before a potential Finals series. If Kornet is unable to go, Oshae Brissett will likely serve as the backup center.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Sitting out Saturday

    Kornet (wrist) won't play Saturday in Game 3 of the Celtics' Eastern Conference Finals series versus the Pacers.

    Kornet was previously carrying a doubtful designation into Sunday, so his absence from Game 3 comes as little surprise. Oshae Brissett is likely to pick up a handful of reserve minutes as the primary backup to starting center Al Horford while Kornet is in street clothes.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Unlikely to play Saturday

    Kornet (wrist) is doubtful for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Pacers on Saturday, Taylor Snow of the Celtics' official site reports.

    Kornet exited Thursday's Game 2 due to a left wrist sprain and will likely be unavailable for at least one matchup. Assuming Kornet is sidelined, Oshae Brissett could see additional run for Boston.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Capped at five minutes with wrist sprain

    Kornet didn't return to Thursday's 126-110 win over the Pacers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals after suffering a sprained left wrist in the first quarter. He finished with two rebounds and one turnover in five minutes.

    After Kornet's early exit, Oshae Brissett (12 minutes) ended up serving as the Celtics' primary reserve big man behind frontcourt starters Al Horford and Jayson Tatum. With Kristaps Porzingis (calf) not expected to be ready to play until Game 4, Kornet's status for Saturday's Game 3 gains added import. The Celtics would likely once again lean more heavily on small-ball lineups featuring Horford, Tatum and Brissett as their main frontcourt options if Kornet joins Porzingis in street clothes.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Questionable to return Thursday

    Kornet is questionable to return to Thursday's Game 2 against the Pacers due to a left wrist sprain.

    The potential absence of Kornet will hurt the team's frontcourt depth, as the Celtics are already missing Kristaps Porzingis (calf). If Kornet can't return, then Xavier Tillman would be in line to absorb minutes as Al Horford's backup.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Officially cleared to play

    Kornet (calf) is available for Monday's Game 4 against the Cavaliers.

    Kornet was probable for Monday's matchup and will officially be able to suit up once again. Over the first three games of the series, he's averaged 3.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Nabs probable tag

    Kornet (right calf tightness) is listed as probable for Monday's Game 4 against the Cavaliers, Justin Turpin of WEEI.com reports.

    Kornet sustained a calf strain in late April but has suited up for each of the last six games for Boston. If he were to end up missing Monday's tilt, Xavier Tillman would likely work behind Al Horford at the five.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Gets five minutes in return

    Kornet (calf) tallied two points (2-2 FT) and one rebound across five minutes Saturday in the Celtics' 104-84 win over the Heat in Game 3 of the first-round playoff series.

    After Kornet was ruled out of the Celtics' playoff opener April 21, head coach Joe Mazzulla labeled the backup center as week-to-week after he strained his right calf during a practice. Ultimately, Kornet missed just two games on account of the issue, as he took back a small role in the Boston rotation in his return to action Saturday. Kornet is unlikely to see his playing time grow substantially as the Celtics' playoff run continues.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Available to play Saturday

    Kornet (calf) is available for Saturday's game against the Heat.

    The availability of Kornet means the Celtics will be at full strength for Game 3 of the series against the Heat. Kornet should see minutes off the bench, though he's likely to have a very limited role with both Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford available.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Likely available Saturday

    Kornet (calf) is probable for Saturday's Game 3 in Miami.

    After starting the final two regular-season games while the usual starters rested, Kornet was sidelined for the first two postseason games while rehabbing a calf injury. Even if he gets the green light, Kornet isn't guaranteed a significant role, especially if Al Horford and Kristaps Porzingis remain healthy.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Gets in work Thursday

    Coach Joe Mazzulla said Thursday that Kornet (calf) is feeling good and more will be known about his injury Friday depending on how he responds to work being done on the court, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Kornet has already missed the first two games of Boston's first-round series against Miami with a calf injury. While Kornet could return to action if the series is drawn out, the Celtics appear to be using Al Horford as their sole bench big.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Set for multi-game absence

    Coach Joe Mazzulla said Sunday that Kornet (calf) is "week-to-week" after suffering a calf injury at practice this week, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Kornet's injury opens the door for Xavier Tillman to log third-string center minutes and step into the occasional frontcourt mismatch scenario with his strength. Kornet averaged just 2.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in 4.0 minutes across eight postseason appearances last year, so there isn't precedent for much rotational change in Boston.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Out for series opener Sunday

    Kornet is out for Sunday's game against the Heat due to a right calf strain, Taylor Snow of the Celtics' official site reports.

    Kornet gives the Celtics size down low, but he wasn't expected to play heavy minutes off the bench as long as Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford are healthy. Kornet averaged 5.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks across 15.6 minutes per game in 63 regular-season appearances.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Notches three blocks vs. Wizards

    Kornet registered 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and three blocks in 27 minutes during Sunday's 132-122 win over Washington.

    Like Friday's game against Charlotte, Kornet was in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest with the Celtics resting all of their starters plus Al Horford (rest). Kornet registered three blocks this season for the eighth time and scored in double digits for a second straight game. Kornet established himself as a key big man off the bench for Boston, and he finishes the regular season averaging 5.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over 15.6 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Double-double vs. Charlotte

    Kornet logged 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 25 minutes during Friday's 131-98 win over the Hornets.

    Kornet got his sixth start of the season Friday with the Celtics resting all of their starters plus Al Horford (toe). Kornet took advantage of the opportunity, as he managed to register his first double-double of the season and the third of his career. He'll likely get the start at center for Boston's regular-season finale against Washington on Sunday.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Gets starting nod

    Kornet is in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Hornets, Justin Turpin of WEEI.com reports.

    Kornet will replace Kristaps Porzingis (hamstring) in the starting lineup Friday. Kornet is averaging 10.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.4 blocks in 30.0 minutes across his last five starting appearances.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Returns to bench

    Kornet isn't starting Monday's game against the Hawks, Justin Turpin of WEEI.com reports.

    Kornet got the nod at center Saturday against the Bulls, but he'll retreat to his usual bench role with Kristaps Porzingis back in action following a maintenance day off. Kornet is averaging 6.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 blocks in 11 March appearances (three starts).
