The Celtics have announced Derrick White has officially been ruled out for Thursday’s Game 2 in Miami according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel’s Ira Winderman. (Ira Winderman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Derrick White will miss Game 2 for the birth of his first child. White left Miami after Game 1 in order to be at the birth. Marcus Smart (foot) is expected to return for Boston after missing Game 1 but White’s absence leaves the same depth hole to fill in the Celtics’ backcourt. Look for Payton Pritchard to see big minutes like he did when Smart was out in the last game. White should return Saturday for Game 3 in Boston.
