Hawks G Dejounte Murray (back) ruled out vs. Celtics

Atlanta Hawks guard Dejounte Murray will miss Wednesday night’s game against the host Boston Celtics due to lower back tightness.

Murray last missed a game on Jan. 28, when he was sidelined against the Toronto Raptors due to right hamstring tightness.

In 49 games this season (all starts), the 27-year-old Murray has averaged 21.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.3 steals. He is shooting 46.6 percent from the field and 37 percent from beyond the arc.

Boston will also be short-handed in the backcourt, as Jrue Holiday was ruled out due to a right elbow sprain.

Holiday, 32, has averaged 13.1 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 46 games (all starts) this season.

Atlanta enters Wednesday 22-28 on the season, while the Celtics are an NBA-best 38-12.
