  • Terry Rozier - G - Boston Celtics

    Terry Rozier stepped up for the Celtics after Kyrie Irving (sprained knee) was ruled out for the game and produced 16 points (6-of-12 shooting), five rebounds, three dimes, two triples and two steals.

    Rozier is a grab right now, considering the possibility that the Celtics might take it easy on Irving this close to the All-Star break. Scary Terry will wobble your team's field goal percentage but will be a decent source of points, dimes, threes and steals given the extra run. Marcus Smart was awful tonight with two points (1-of-5 shooting), three boards, five assists, one steal and one block.

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum was off his game on Saturday, going 4-of-12 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line to wind up with 16 points, eight rebounds, one triple and one steal.

    Tatum has been a top-50 play in 9-cat on the season, so we're not too worried about this disappointing outing. Keep him plugged in as usual.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a sprained knee and will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

    He leaves the game after logging 14 minutes and tallying 14 points, one rebound, two assists and one trey. It's time to grab Terry Rozier again, folks. The Celtics will take it easy on their prized guard, so it isn't unlikely that he'll sit out until after the All-Star Break.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving was escorted to the locker room by a trainer in Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Uh oh. Irving, for all of his fantastic per-game appeal, has managed to sour weekly contests with his habit of missing games every so often with this-and-that injuries. Hopefully, this one isn't something serious though. Stay tuned.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (sore left knee) has been upgraded to available for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    With Aron Baynes (foot) being out, Theis has been putting up good numbers and should be owned everywhere. Now that he looks good to play, he should be plugged into lineups.

  • 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.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving led the Celtics in scoring in their 128-129 loss to the Lakers on Thursday with 24 points on 6-of-21 shooting to go with seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Irving started off hot, cooled off and then hit the go-ahead bucket late in the fourth quarter only to watch Rajon Rondo clinch the game at the buzzer. It's encouraging to see Irving distribute the ball and make plays for his teammates when he's off his game offensively and the uptick in assists shows developments in his game that are more than welcome in the fantasy world.

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum double-doubled on Thursday with 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Tatum was dropping buckets on Rajon Rondo early in the game but the Lakers adjusted later on by putting Kyle Kuzma on him. He's one of the most consistent players on the Celtics and has quickly overtaken Gordon Hayward (four points on 2-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and five assists) as the No. 2 man on offense after Kyrie Irving.

  • Jaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown logged 25 minutes off the bench on Thursday and scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, an assist and a block.

    Brown came off the bench and provided a spark for the Celtics in a high scoring affair along with Terry Rozier (19 points on 5-of-9 shooting with five triples, four rebounds, six assists and a steal) but both players have low fantasy ceilings due to their minutes when the roster is healthy.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford scored 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and a triple-one on Thursday.

    Horford had potentially the game-winning block on Brandon Ingram, but Rajon Rondo spoiled his night. His minutes weren't high tonight, but it's partly due to Daniel Theis (20 points on 9-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, two triples and two blocks) being on fire and a slight matchup issue with the Lakers bigs. He's still as steady as they come.

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Willliams (sore back) is available for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    Williams is worth a roll of the dice if you need some blocks tonight, as the Lakers aren't a bad matchup for him at all. He'll hold blocks specialist appeal for as long as he's in the rotation, though Boston is reportedly looking at Enes Kanter on the buyout market. Between that and Aron Baynes' eventual return, Williams is only a short-term play.

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams (sore back) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    Williams has missed the last two games, allowing Daniel Theis to absorb all the backup minutes behind Al Horford. While Williams is going to be on the very edge of the rotation even with Aron Baynes out, he might still be able to play enough to hold value as a blocks specialist. Until he's ready to play, however, that's all moot.

  • Marcus Morris - F - Boston Celtics

    Marcus Morris (knee) will play in Thursday's matchup vs. the Lakers.

    Morris missed Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs along with Kyrie Irving and both of them will be returning to the lineup on Thursday vs. the Lakers. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will get their workload slightly diminished and Morris will move back into his top-75 producing role.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving (hip) will play on Thursday vs. the Lakers.

    Irving will return to the lineup after missing Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs. This means that Terry Rozier will go back to the bench and become less valuable in this matchup and those that have Kyrie can feel free to deploy him in all lineups. Hopefully he'll be able to stay available for good this time.

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Sam Amick of the Athletic is reporting that the Celtics and Pelicans have talked about Jayson Tatum already, adding that the young forward is expected to be a major part of negotiations if the two sides reconnect in the summer.

    While the Celtics aren’t permitted to actually complete a trade this week for Anthony Davis, as long as Kyrie Irving remains on their roster, there’s nothing stopping the two teams from connecting and it appears that there has been plenty of talk between the two of them. The uncertainty surrounding Tatum is just one of many factors that complicate the Pelicans’ decision-making process, but his upside arguably exceeds that of any of the players the Lakers have offered so far. This is another report that proves how the Pelicans would be wise to wait until the summer to deal AD and we are all waiting to see what’s the next piece of the puzzle.
