BOSTON -- Charlotte forward Josh McRoberts is sidelined Wednesday night against the Boston Celtics for what the Bobcats called "personal reasons."

Anthony Tolliver started in place of McRoberts, who scored a season-high 19 points in a loss at Atlanta on Monday.

The 6-foot-10 McRoberts is averaging 9.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists.

Tolliver is shooting just 33 percent from the field, but 42 percent from 3-point range in five games.

The team expects McRoberts back on Friday when it plays at Cleveland.
