The Boston Celtics will be without Courtney Lee on Wednesday night in Cleveland.

Neither Lee nor Kevin Garnett -- both battling left ankle ailments -- made the trip with the team. For Lee, who sprained his ankle Friday in Dallas, this will be the third straight game he's missed after appearing in the first 68 contests.

The Celtics started Jordan Crawford in place of Lee on Tuesday in order to keep Jason Terry in a reserve role.

Lee could be back on the floor as early as Friday's visit from Atlanta. Garnett is expected out for two weeks with ankle inflammation.
