The Celtics will trot out another new starting 5 on Wednesday night as Chris Wilcox joins the first unit alongside Avery Bradley, Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass.

Boston is playing without both guard Courtney Lee (sprained ankle) and Kevin Garnett (ankle inflammation). On Tuesday against the Knicks, Boston went with Jordan Crawford in Lee's starting role, but now in Cleveland the Celtics will go big with Wilcox at center and Green shuffling to a swingman role.

The Celtics have lost five straight and owns a 1-game lead over Milwaukee at the bottom of the Eastern Conference playoff ladder.
