Celtics vs. Bucks injury update: Chris Wilcox, Leandro Barbosa sit for Boston

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics will play the Milwaukee Bucks for the fourth and final time of the regular season, but will be without Chris Wilcox and Leandro Barbosa.

Even though it is only December, the Boston Celtics will play the Milwaukee Bucks for the fourth and final time in the 2012-13 regular season on Friday night, but will need to do so without two of their rotational players in Chris Wilcox and Leandro Barbosa, via Steve Bulpett of The Boston Herald.

Wilcox will not be in uniform for the Celtics tonight because of a right thumb injury that also caused him to miss Wednesday's win against the Cleveland Cavaliers, which was the second game of a back-to-back for the team.

Barbosa won't be with the team on Friday, as the guard deals with a personal matter for the time being, so he will also be inactive for the team. No further information was disclosed on his situation.

After Friday's game, the Celtics will have a few days to rest, recover and prepare for division foes the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday at the Barclays Center.
