Projecting Boston Celtics' Playoff Rotation

Well folks, it's official. The seventh-seeded Boston Celtics will head to New York to begin their first-round playoff series against the Atlantic Division champion Knicks.

After a 2012-13 campaign where everything that could possibly have gone wrong did, the Celtics have emerged battered but not broken as they head into the truly meaningful games of the NBA season.

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are as healthy as they are going to be at this point in their careers, while Jeff Green and Brandon Bass are both looking more and more like the players Danny Ainge thought they were when they both received lucrative contracts in the 2012 offseason.

Jason Terry and Courtney Lee are both struggling in place of the injured Rajon Rondo, but the team has found some surprising contributors in Jordan Crawford and Shavlik Randolph off the bench.

This Celtics' roster is far from perfect, but it's the roster they are going to have heading into the playoffs. With that in mind, let's take a look at the expected minutes and roles for the Celtics' top-10 rotation players.

Note: The hypothetical 11th man here is Terrence Williams, but I just cannot see him receiving consistent minutes in a seven-game series.
