BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Celtics beat the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday with just nine healthy players, but it’s not something they want to make a habit of with a tough March schedule ahead of them.

So with an extra roster spot and in need of some depth on the bench, the Celtics signed guard Chris Babb to a 10-day contract on Friday.

Babb, a training camp invitee and Boston’s final roster cut ahead of the regular season, was playing for Boston’s D-League affiliate in Maine. In 32 games with the Red Claws, Babb averaged 11.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

Babb, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Iowa State, scored 16 points to go with three assists and four rebounds in five preseason games for Boston.

The 6-5 guard will give Boston some more depth at shooting guard as Avery Bradley continues to nurse an ankle injury.
