8:32 p.m.: The D.J. White waiting game continues. Multiple reports say the Celtics and the 26-year-old forward have come to an agreement for the 6-foot-9 Indiana product to join the team, but there appears to be a snag with the paperwork. As a result, White is still not officially a Celtic and cannot play with the team, even though all indications are that he was ready to go as early as Sunday in Portland. In the meantime, the Celtics will have to make due with the players they have, which was enough to earn a victory over the Suns on Friday but not so much against the Blazers. All indications are that Kevin Garnett, who was given off Friday to rest, will play with no limitations in the second part of a back-to-back. The Celtics do not have another game after this one until Friday. The projected starters appear below. Celtics Kevin Garnett Brandon Bass Paul Pierce Courtney Lee Avery Bradley Jazz Al Jefferson Paul Millsap Marvin Williams Randy Foye Jamaal Tinsley 8 a.m. ET: Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson will still be in Utah Jazz uniforms when the Celtics take the court at Energy Solutions Arena on Monday. Finding anyone who is not surprised by that development could be harder than finding a good bar in Salt Lake City. The Jazz shockingly stood pat at last week’s trade deadline despite the fact that both Millsap and Jefferson are free agents at the end of the season, and both could be in line for raises. The Jazz cannot afford both of them, however, and many observers assumed they would try to move one during the season. Instead, it looks like the team simply will let their contracts expire and see what it can do with the salary cap space. In the short term, that makes the Celtics’ job tougher. Paul Pierce led a late rally that fell short Sunday in Portland, and his chances of getting the Celtics back to their winning ways in Utah would have been much greater if one of the Jazz’s All-Star caliber frontcourt players were not around. Join us for updates and analysis during the game, which tips off at 9 p.m. ET.
