According to Jared Weiss of The Athletic, Boston Celtics F Al Horford is expected to face several workload restrictions during the 2022-23 season. (Source: Jared Weiss of The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: After a deep playoff run that saw Horford play a grueling 35.4 minutes per game, the team has expressed interest in having the veteran face workload restrictions next season.

With a thin rotation at the forward position, the Celtics will take a cautious approach as they aim to head back to the NBA finals this season. With a minutes restriction, Horford's stock will likely shrink in redraft leagues but his upside in category leagues remains elite as a rebound, shot blocker, and three-point shooter at the PF position.
