David Lee (heel) and R.J. Hunter (hip flexor) out for New Orleans game

The Celtics look to end their five-game road trip on a winning note, but will have to do so short-handed:

Lee missed Saturday's loss in San Antonio, a game where his services were dearly needed as the Celts were outscored 44-30 in the paint. Hunter's absense will sting as well as the C's are already thin in the backcourt without Marcus Smart.
