Rudy Gay and Marcus Thornton out for Kings, Rondo and Bradley out for Celtics

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Both teams will be missing at least two regular starters in tonight's game.

It appears that both teams will be entering tonight's game a little banged up.

Coach Brad Stevens confirmed to a Boston radio station that Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley will both be out tonight dealing with soreness.  Rondo has played just 8 games since coming back from his ACL injury.  Bradley is out with an ankle sprain.  With no Rondo or Bradley, Boston's backcourt starters project to be Jerryd Bayless and Gerald Wallace.  Rookies Phil Pressey and Vander Blue, along with recent signing Chris Johnson, will probably see some time as well.

For Sacramento, Rudy Gay apparently caught whatever virus Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette had last week:

Derrick Williams, who sat out last game with a foot strain, will start in Gay's place.

Also out for Sacramento is Marcus Thornton, who is nursing a bruised hip and knee after a really hard fall in Wednesday's game against the Raptors.  Ben McLemore will likely start in his place.
