  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker narrowly missed out on a double-double on Thursday night, finishing with 19 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in 46 minutes as the Celtics outlasted the Clippers.

    Walker put up good popcorn numbers but 5-of-17 shooting is just ugly. He should be fine the rest of the way, but might not be a second-round asset like he was drafted to be. The only other guard to play significant minutes behind Walker and Marcus Smart in the absence of Jaylen Brown was Brad Wanamaker, who managed nine points in 26 minutes, so Walker should get as much run as he can handle.

    Brad Wanamaker (left ankle sprain) has been cleared to play on Friday.

    Wanamaker was listed as probable but he shouldn't be viewed as a fantasy option with both Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart returning from their respective injuries tonight.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart (right quad contusion) and Brad Wanamaker (left ankle sprain) are both probable ahead of Friday's tilt vs. the Hawks.

    With Kemba Walker, Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown all questionable heading into tomorrow's game, there could be additional opportunity for both Smart and/or Wanamaker if they suit up. Continue to monitor the news up until tip-off as more updates are expected. Smart has the higher upside out of the two players.

    Kemba Walker is officially listed as questionable to face the Hawks on Friday as he recovers from some soreness in his left knee.

    Walker is in jeopardy of missing his fourth straight game on Friday. Romeo Langford earned his first start of the season on Wednesday but didn't produce with the additional opportunity. Marcus Smart and Brad Wanamaker are both probable and could be in line for additional opportunity if Walker sits out and they suit up.

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) will not play on Wednesday.

    Walker was previously listed as questionable but will miss his third straight game. Brad Wanamaker is shaping up as an interesting DFS play in light of the injuries to Walker and Marcus Smart.

    Marcus Smart (right quad contusion) will not play during Wednesday's game.

    He is improving but isn't quite ready to return to action. Brad Wanamaker will get another game with heavier minutes.

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Marcus Smart is questionable for this one as well. If neither can go Brad Wanamaker would be in line for extended minutes and is worth a streaming look.

    Grant Williams may have had his best game of the season on Monday vs. the Hawks, putting up 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 25 minutes.

    Williams' minutes have fluctuated too much for him to be a trustable fantasy contributor. However, the rookie has shown potential and his recent defensive stats have helped his cause quite a bit. Brad Wanamaker was even better off the bench on Monday with 16 points (5-of-9 FGs), three rebounds, five assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes. Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart missed this game, so don't expect this on a regular basis from Wanamaker.

    Marcus Smart (right thigh contusion) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Hawks.

    The Celtics have already ruled Kemba Walker out and if Smart is unable to play we should see a heavy dose of Brad Wanamaker

    Brad Wanamaker benefitted from the blow-out nature of Saturday's win over the Sixers and recorded a season-high 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting with one rebound, three assists, two 3s and two steals in 26 minutes.

    Kemba Walker is expected to miss at least one more game. And while Wanamaker is not much of a fantasy noisemaker, he could be worth a stream in Walker's absence.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) will be held out for at least the next two games.

    Walker's knee flared up after Thursday's game and while coach Brad Stevens does not think it will be a long-term thing, admitted that it's something they will have to monitor going forward. Walker missed a game with the same knee soreness two weeks ago and his 35.7 field goal percentage over the last three games may be a reflection of the injury. Marcus Smart should move into the starting lineup with Brad Wanamaker locked in as his backup.

    Javonte Green (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Green has averaged 4.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in his last ten games. That makes him a useful role player for the Celtics but not worth owning in fantasy circles. Brad Wanamaker could see a bit more action if Green doesn't play.

    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker was quiet on Wednesday, registering eight points, three boards, four assists, two steals and two blocks.

    The four defensive stats are a welcome addition, and the lack of production can be attributed to the score as the Celtics blew out the Grizzlies. Carsen Edwards and Brad Wanamaker both so time as a result, finishing with seven and ten points respectively.

    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Suns.

    Brad Wanamaker may be in line to draw the start for Walker with Marcus Smart already slated to start for Jaylen Brown. Walker's injury doesn't seem to be long-term and he should be treated as day-to-day going forward.

    Romeo Langford (illness) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    Brad Wanamaker will see additional run with Langford out and Kemba Walker questionable.
