M. Turner - C
Turner exited Monday's contest against the Jazz with a left ankle injury and is questionable to return, Pat Boyland of the Indiana Pacers Radio reports.
Turner suffered a left ankle sprain early in the first half. If he's unable to take the court, look for Domantas Sabonis and Kyle O'Quinn to see an uptick in minutes.

J. Jackson Jr. - PF
Jackson will remain in the starting lineup despite JaMychal Green (jaw) returning from injury, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.
Coach J.B. Bickerstaff confirmed that Jackson will remain the starting power forward amidst speculation that Jackson may lose his starting role with the return of Green, who was the preseason starter. Jackson has played well so far this season, and despite the fact that both players are likely to see a healthy dose of minutes, the time share with Green is worth monitoring going forward.

M. Muscala - PF
Muscala will resume a bench role Monday against the Suns.
Muscala drew the start at power forward Sunday, scoring just six points over 37 minutes of action. He should log a good chunk of playing time off the bench, but Wilson Chandler gets the nod and figures to do so moving forward.

W. Chandler - PF
Chandler will start Monday's game against the Suns.
After ceding his starting spot to Mike Muscala for Sunday's game, Chandler will resume his usual role Monday. The move corresponds with an increase in Chandler's minutes restriction to a maximum of 27 minutes. Chandler appears to be on the right track to playing without any limitations soon.

J. Smith - SG
Smith will come off the bench Monday against the Pistons, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
After starting the previous four games, Smith will return to a bench role as Cedi Osman rejoins the starting lineup in his place. Smith is averaging 6.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 16.3 minutes per game as a reserve this season (six games).

C. Osman - SF
Osman is starting at forward Monday against the Pistons, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Osman will rejoin the starting lineup after coming off the bench in his first game back from a minor injury last week. He'll replace J.R. Smith in the starting five. In 11 starts this season, Osman is averaging 11.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 30.6 minutes.

G. Hayward - SF
Hayward will come off the bench Monday against the Hornets, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Hayward has struggled to get going so far this season, averaging just 10.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists across 26.7 minutes per game, so he'll retreat to the bench as the Celtics look to shake things up. Aron Baynes will enter the starting lineup in place of Hayward, who should still play a significant role off the bench.

A. Baynes - C
Baynes will start in place of Gordon Hayward on Monday against the Hornets, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Baynes will get the spot start as coach Brad Stevens seeks to mix it up a bit. Hayward has been stiff so far this year, so the move is likely aimed at giving him an opportunity to get going against the Hornets substitutes rather than a long-term lineup change.
