Al Horford will be starting the season as a bench player for the Boston Celtics. This is a departure from his usual role as a starter, both with the Celtics and during his brief stint with the Philadelphia 76ers.
The decision to bring Horford off the bench is strategic, as it helps manage his playing time, especially during back-to-back games.
By doing so, the Celtics can maintain a more stable starting lineup, which was influenced by the acquisition of Jrue Holiday before the training camp began.
