    Brad Wanamaker brought some heat off the Celtics bench on Friday, delivering 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting, adding four rebounds, one assist, one triple and two steals.

    The efficient shooting and the two steals from Wanamaker make him a worthy add, considering he did his damage despite the return of Kemba Walker (rest). That said, you still have to take his 24 minutes tonight with a grain of salt as the Celtics blew the Raptors out of the water early and never looked back.

    Brad Wanamaker stepped up in the absence of Kemba Walker (knee) on Wednesday, coming off the bench for 13 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field and a 5-of-6 clip at the line.

    Wanamaker was able to make his owners happy tonight as he added three rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks to the box score. He's going to pop with value hovering around the top-100 in games where the Celtics are without Walker.

    Kemba Walker logged 22 minutes on Sunday but looked good in his time on the floor, going 5-of-6 from the field for 14 points, two threes and a block.

    Walker has looked good despite his limited workloads so far and he was antsy to get back into the game in the fourth quarter even though he had already hit his minutes cap. His long-term health remains the priority, but we'd expect Walker's leash to lengthen in the next game, as it did for this one after he played well in the re-opener. One minor effect of Walker's improvement is that Brad Wanamaker (10 minutes, one assist) fell off the map after a solid game on Friday. Kemba remains a dicey fantasy option because of how little he's playing but is definitely headed in the right direction.

    Brad Wanamaker ushered in the resumption of the 2019-20 season with a solid performance off the bench, dropping 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from the line.

    This was a welcome performance from Wanamaker, who also added six rebounds, one assist and two steals to round out his line for the night. He got some extra run tonight with Kemba Walker's minutes being managed and was limited to 19. While we respect Wanamaker's potential, he still lacks the consistency needed to be trusted in fantasy.

    Brad Stevens expects Kemba Walker (left knee) to play 14-20 minutes during Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Stevens said that Walker's knee is feeling good, but he will be brought along slowly for precautionary reasons. Walker is expected to assume a full workload by the time the playoffs arrive. Brad Wanamaker, Javonte Green and Romeo Langford have seen expanded roles during scrimmage action.

    Brad Wanamaker averaged 6.6 points, 1.4 triples, 2.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 0.8 steals in 19.3 minutes off the bench, returning 241/245 value in 8/9-cat scoring formats.

    With Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart missing time due to various injuries, the Celtics had to turn to Wanamaker for some much-needed help at the point guard position and the veteran delivered. Although his percentages were ugly and he doesn’t really have a diverse fantasy game, Wanamaker proved to be a nice option in deeper formats. He is a free agent at the end of the season and he should be able to generate some interest around the league as a scoring guard who can hit the triple.

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) is considered probable for Tuesday's game.

    Walker hasn't played since February 16 but looks to be ready to face the Nets. Brad Wanamaker should see a reduced role, but even without Walker he wasn't playing all that much. Walker has averaged 21.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.0 assists this season.

    Kemba Walker will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday as he continues to nurse a sore left knee.

    Walker will now miss his fourth consecutive game since playing in the All-Star game. In his absence, Brad Wanamaker and Romeo Langford have seen additional opportunity handling the ball but neither are standard league streamers. Marcus Smart and the rest of the starters will benefit the most while Kemba is sidelined. Walker's next opportunity to play will be on Saturday vs. the Rockets.

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness), who has already been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Blazers, is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Marcus Smart will be in line for yet another start if Walker is unable to go, while Brad Wanamaker would again see additional minutes as well.

    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 (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.
