The Boston Celtics have been granted a $3.23 million disabled player exception due to the preseason injury suffered by free agent addition Danilo Gallinari, according to Shams Charania. Disabled player exceptions are granted when a player suffers an injury that is determined to be season-ending. Boston used its taxpayer mid-level exception on Gallinari in free agency, and will now have an exception worth half of that figure to be used in either the buyout market or in a trade.

The Celtics have two other notable exceptions to work with: a $6.9 million trade exception they got by sending out Juancho Hernangomez and a $5.9 million exception they generated when they sent Dennis Schroder to Houston. Both expire before the trade deadline. While these three exceptions all have value individually, they cannot be aggregated. This essentially means that the Celtics could add one player worth up to $6.9 million, another up to $5.9 million and a third for up to $3.23 million.
