Celtics fans can breathe a sigh of relief (or frustration, depending on your point of view), because the concussion that kept Horford out of nine games this season isn’t the cause - his wife is.

Al Horford will not play tonight for personal reasons. "He'll be good to go Tuesday at practice," Brad Stevens says.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 28, 2016
Boston will likely miss Horford against one of the league’s best rebounding bigs (Hassan Whiteside) in tonight's matchup with the Miami Heat, but it's hard to fault a guy for wanting to be there for the birth of his kid - even after his unexpected two week absence. Congratulations, Al - hopefully we can find a way to get some Geno Time going to celebrate, though it's sure to be harder without you.
I PROBABLY WONT WATCH THIS GAME WHICH IS EFFECTIVELY MEANINGLESS BUT I NEED TO PROJECT MY INSECURITIES TOWARDS MY JOB ONTO YOU AL HORFORD! https://t.co/iHznS6vdmI— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) November 28, 2016
