  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford (patellofemoral pain syndrome) has been ruled out for Friday's game.

    Coach Brad Stevens said on Wednesday that Horford will be out a few games. After lingering knee soreness caused Horford pain for a few weeks, expect him to stay out until he makes significant progress, if not fully pain free. Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis are decent streaming options in deeper leagues but are too hard to trust in standard leagues. Robert Williams has looked impressive in his short amount of time recently, but gets too few minutes for fantasy purposes.

    Brad Stevens said that Al Horford will probably be out for a few games.

    The writing has been on the wall after Horford was diagnosed with patellar tendinitis last week. The Celtics will likely play it safe in order to protect their big man and owners should prepare accordingly. Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis should be good streaming opportunities in deeper leagues but they are both not very consistent to be added in 12-team formats.

    Al Horford (knee) is questionable for Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

    Horford has missed two straight games, but shouldn't be out much longer. The Celtics can afford to sit him thanks to their outstanding depth. Against the lowly Wizards, the Celtics could very well sit him in this one. Aaron Baynes would see a big uptick in playing time if that's the case.

    Al Horford is out on Monday and is day-to-day going forward.

    Brad Stevens said that Horford has been dealing with patellar tendinitis for a while so the Celtics may go slowly with him. Daniel Theis is starting in his place again on Monday and will look to replicate his huge game against the Bulls in Boston's last game. It'll be tougher sledding against the Pelicans but you can expect Theis to be a popular DFS option tonight. Owners will just have to sit tight with Horford and hope he doesn't miss much more time.

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) remains doubtful Monday's game.

    Horford was ruled out but the Celtics quickly issued a correction, though we still wouldn't expect him to play. With Aron Baynes and Gordon Hayward also out, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris and Daniel Theis will do the heavy lifting at the forward spots. We might also see Semi Ojeleye and Robert Williams get some run.

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) is doubtful for Monday's game.

    Horford has been dealing with this knee soreness for a few weeks now, and a few games off should help him. Daniel Theis should start again with Aron Baynes (ankle) doubtful.

    Al Horford is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Pelicans because of left knee soreness.

    Horford got the night off on Saturday against the woeful Bulls, but it'd be a huge lift if he could return tomorrow night against Anthony Davis and friends — especially with Aron Baynes questionable. Going super small isn't the best recipe for dealing with The Brow. Horford rode the exercise bike and tried to warm up on Saturday but ultimately couldn't play, and an MRI showed no structural damage. Check back for an update tomorrow. Daniel Theis could be very busy tomorrow.

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) will not play Saturday vs. Chicago.

    Horford rode a stationary bike then tried to warmup before the game but said his knee was too sore. He recently had an MRI that showed no structural damage. It's just wait and see for Horford at this point. He may take a few games off if necessary to get fully healed. Daniel Theis will start in this one.

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) will workout before Saturday's game before his status is determined.

    The Celtics are already down Aron Baynes and Robert Williams, so if Horford misses, things could get weird. Horford has missed two of the last six games and may add another to that tally Saturday. The knee soreness has been bothering him for a few weeks now, and given his age, it is a bit concerning. Daniel Theis and Marcus Morris would be in for heavy workloads if Horford can't play.

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to take on the Bulls on Saturday.

    Horford missed two of the last six games and is now in danger of missing another. This knee soreness has been bothering him for a few weeks now so that is concerning. With Aron Baynes already ruled out, Daniel Theis could potentially be forced into a lot of minutes against the Bulls with Marcus Morris playing some small-ball center. Robert Williams could make an appearance as well.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford posted 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting to go with 12 boards, three assists and four blocks on Thursday.

    Big Al had zero points in the first quarter, but turned it up afterwards, taking advantage of a porous Knicks' frontcourt. He had his fingerprints all over this game as evidenced by his high efficiency and volume.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford returned from a one-game absence (rest) on Saturday and hit 7-of-11 from the field for 15 points.

    Horford's line was muted elsewhere with three rebounds, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer, but it was good to see him active just the same. You can also cut him some slack since he had to deal with Karl-Anthony Towns on the defensive end. Big Al will be fine going forward, so look forward to solid top-50 lines as soon as Boston's next game.

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams is active for Friday’s game vs. the Cavs.

    Al Horford (rest) will get the night off so Williams might get some minutes behind starter Aron Baynes but with only 3.6 minutes per game on the season, he hasn’t made a fantasy impact this year. If Boston gains a large, early lead, it’s very possible Williams can get more run than usual, but that’s a risk you don’t need to take for DFS.

    Al Horford (rest) has been ruled out for Friday's game.

    This seems like a normal day of rest for the veteran center. Aron Baynes is the assumed starter, while Marcus Morris should also see extended minutes and usage.
