  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) will not play on the Celtics' upcoming road trip, which means he'll miss at least three more games.

    Danny Ainge said that Baynes may not return until early March, so this isn't too surprising. Daniel Theis gets at least three more games of fantasy appeal.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) is expected to return in late February or early March, per Danny Ainge.

    Baynes was expected to be out through the All-Star break because of a bruised cuboid bone, but this extends that timeline by a couple weeks. Daniel Theis' deep-league value will be safe until Baynes returns.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (sore left knee) is being called questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

    Theis has been delivering low-usage top-80 9-cat value over the last two weeks with Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) out. If he can’t go we might see Robert Williams (back) if he’s healthy enough to play or the Celtics might elect to go small vs. the Clippers.

    Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) is likely to be sidelined through the All-Star break.

    Baynes is dealing with a bruised cuboid bone. Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will step up in the rotation and are both solid deep-league options for the next couple of weeks. Al Horford is back at full strength so they might not have the same type of production they did when Baynes was out last, but both of Boston's backup bigs are worth consideration in 16-team formats.

    Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) will be sidelined for at least the next week.

    Baynes had recently returned from a broken left hand but only lasted two weeks before getting hurt again. While he's sidelined, Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will be back on the deep-league radar. Theis is the target for his all-around game while Williams will become a solid blocks specialist.

    Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    It's a new issue for Baynes and there has not been word on how long he is expected to miss. Daniel Theis and Robert Williams should fill in for Baynes while he is out. Theis is a decent deep-league streaming option while Williams is in play if you need blocks.

    Aron Baynes started for Al Horford (rest) in Wednesday's game but only managed two points, eight rebounds and an assist in the win.

    Baynes took just four shots, making one, in 22 minutes and did not record a defensive stat. If Horford were to miss an extended period of time, Baynes would have some upside, but he should not be owned right now. He provides Boston with much more value than he does fantasy owners.

    Aron Baynes returned from a broken left hand on Wednesday and scored nine points with five rebounds in a win over the Raptors.

    Marcus Smart also returned from illness and had five points with four rebounds, three assists and three steals. Smart has been a top-100 player this season and he can be plugged back into lineups. Baynes can remain on the wire.

    Aron Baynes (broken left hand) will return to the lineup on Wednesday night.

    Baynes underwent surgery on December 20 and has been sidelined ever since. He might not play a ton tonight, especially with the Raptors having only Greg Monroe as a pure matchup for Baynes, but his return should help settle Boston's defense and help them out on the glass. Robert Williams and/or Daniel Theis figure to be bumped from the rotation shortly, and Baynes is a rebounder who can pick up the occasional block or 3-pointer in very deep leagues.

    Aron Baynes (broken left hand) is questionable to play on Wednesday.

    We're going to guess that his re-evaluation today went well. The Raptors aren't a great matchup for Baynes while Jonas Valanciunas is sidelined so he shouldn't play much tomorrow even if he does make his return. Daniel Theis and Robert Williams may be pushed out of the rotation when Baynes is back at full strength. Deep-leaguers can wait and see unless you're in dire need of rebounds.

    Aron Baynes (broken left hand) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

    Last week it was said that Baynes may be able to return around the middle of this week, so if all goes well tomorrow there's a real chance that he can be back in the lineup shortly. His return will help Boston out up front since Al Horford is still under a loose minutes restriction, while it may spell the end of the deep-league appeal for Daniel Theis and Robert Williams.

    Aron Baynes (broken left hand) will be re-evaluated early next week and may be able to return mid-to-late next week if all goes well.

    That's the absolute best-case scenario for Baynes, so we'd conservatively project him to return a little bit after than that. Think two weeks. Baynes underwent surgery on December 20 and was set to be re-evaluated tomorrow, but it sounds like the Celtics will push that back to give him more time to heal. Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will be fighting to stay in the rotation when Baynes does return.

    Aron Baynes (hand) plans on visiting the doctor within the next two days to get on updated timetable on his hand.

    Baynes has been out since Dec. 19 and his original timetable was somewhere around four to six weeks. Robert Williams is also dealing with and injury right now and Daniel Theis just isn't the guy to match up with heavy centers so the Celtics are definitely missing Baynes.

    Aron Baynes underwent successful surgery on his hand on Thursday and expects to return to action in four to six weeks.

    Robert Williams and Daniel Theis are really the Celtics' only serious big man options right now, so they may creep onto radars in deep leagues. Williams more specifically has some upside while backing up the oft-injured Al Horford.

    Aron Baynes has been diagnosed with a broken hand and will undergo surgery, sidelining him for about a month.

    This is the time to pick up Robert Williams, who should get a shot to shine in his rookie campaign. He will get some nightly threats to his minutes from Daniel Theis as both backup Al Horford, when he finally returns.
