A couple members of the Boston Celtics will not be suiting up today for their second European exhibition game after falling ill.

“We’ve had some upper respiratory issues for a couple of days now, and we have a couple of other guys who are a little feverish,” Brad Stevens said at this morning’s shootaround. “It’s going around and I don’t know who’s going to be available and who’s not.”

Amir Johnson has already been ruled out of todays game against Real Madrid due to the illness and David Lee was not present at shootaround.

On top of losing players to this illness, Boston will also be down Evan Turner who, despite looking like he was going to play, will sit out today’s matchup.

Perry Jones will be missing from action as well after flying back home to the United States due to a death in his family.

Celtics are scheduled to wrap up their European excursion today and fly back to the states on Friday.
