Hoping to strengthen an understaffed squad, the Boston Celtics are bringing in reinforcements – some veterans.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics Wings are signing C.J. Miles for the NBA hardship exception. Miles, 34, has not been part of an NBA roster since the 2019-20 season when he appeared in 10 games with the Washington Wizards. His last game promotion in the league dates back to November 26, 2019. Just last week, however, he signed with G League Ignite, where he lost nine points on his NBAGL debut in December and racked up five rebounds in 22 minutes 17.

Miles has a lot of experience and sharpshooting. The Dallas-born former second-round pick of Utah Jazz has hit a total of 1,250 career three-points (35.8%) in his 892 games (including postseason). Miles’ other stints during his 15-year NBA career include stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors and Memphis Grizzlies. During that time, he averaged 9.6 points and 2.4 rebounds per game.

As NBC Sports Boston’s Darren Hartwell pointed out, Miles’ 10-day deal doesn’t count towards the Boston squad limit, because the exception is only granted to teams where at least three players have missed three consecutive games due to injury or illness.

Of course, the Celtics are definitely covered by these provisions, as the team is currently seven players on pause. Wing Josh Richardson entered the health and safety protocols on December 19, joining Grant Williams, Al Horford, Juancho Hernangomez, Jabari Parker, Sam Hauser, and Brodric Thomas.

Additionally, Boston also listed Jayson Tatum (Sprain left ankle), Dennis Schroder (illness, non-COVID) and Romeo Langford (neck pain) as questionable for their December 20th match against the Philadelphia 76ers.

As for Philadelphia, you are arguably as exhausted as Boston after they entered Health Center Andre Drummond and Guard Shake Milton on December 19 – and have recorded the league’s security protocol. Additionally, they’ve all listed Joel Embiid (ankle), Danny Green (hip) and Tyrese Maxey (quad) as questionable in their most recent injury report. Ultimately, the NBA decided to postpone the Sixers’ game against the New Orleans Pelicans scheduled for Sunday. Wojnarowski reported, however, that there is « optimism » that Philly « will be able to resume gaming in Boston on Monday ».

Miles is the second hardship case in the Celtics’ list in the last three days. On December 18, the team announced that they had signed a 10-day hardship release striker Justin Jackson of the G League’s Texas Legends.

Jackson, 26, was number 15 in the Sacramento Kings overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. The North Carolina product has since spread throughout the league, spending time with the Dallas Mavericks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Milwaukee Bucks. With the latter, he earned a championship ring a season ago, although he only appeared in one game in the regular season and didn’t drive a minute in the postseason. The 6-foot-8-inch forward has played a total of 248 NBA games (61 starts) over the course of his career, averaging 6.6 points in 19.1 minutes per competition.
