    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.

    Carden Edwards will not be active for Monday's game against the Lakers despite being called up to the main roster.

    With Brown off the injury report and Kemba Walker expecting to play, the Celtics don't need for Edwards at this time. He is well off the fantasy radar.

    Marcus Smart has been ruled out with an eye infection ahead of Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    With Smart ruled out, there will be more opportunity for Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards and Brad Wanamaker. Romeo Langford could also some opportunity on Wednesday in what has been an injury-riddled first year.

  • Marcus Smart

    Marcus Smart is officially questionable for Friday's tilt vs. the Nuggets due to a bruised abdomen.

    Smart was dealing with an illness that he appears to have gotten past. Now he appears to be dealing with the injury that forced him to leave Sunday's game early. It appears that Grant Williams will start if Smart misses Friday's contest while Semi Ojeleye, Brad Wanamaker and Carsen Edwards could all see some additional run.

    Marcus Smart (illness/oblique) did not participate in Tuesday's practice and is considered doubtful to play against the Heat on Wednesday.

    Smart is the latest victim of the flu bug sweeping through NBA locker rooms and that, in addition to the oblique injury that he picked up during Monday's game, has him on the wrong side of playing against the Heat. If Smart is ruled out, Javonte Green, Brad Wanamaker and Carsen Edwards will all be in line for additional minutes.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (neck bruise) is being listed as probable to return to game action ahead of Wednesday's game against the Nets.

    With Walker set to return, Brad Wanamaker and Carsen Edwards are going to lose most of their value. Each can be dropped in standard leagues, while Walker can safely be plugged back into lineups.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker was released from the hospital late Friday night to rejoin the team for their return to Boston.

    The Celtics Twitter account added that, "[Walker] will be re-evaluated tomorrow and further updates will be provided as appropriate." It was a scary scene in the first half on Friday as Walker collided head-first with teammate Semi Ojeleye and had to be stretchered out but at least it appears he has avoided a significant injury. Ojeleye started the second half for Walker while Brad Wanamaker and Carsen Edwards may see an uptick in minutes in the near-term.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Carsen Edwards scored a career-high 18 points in Wednesday's win over the Wizards, adding four rebounds, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in just 20 minutes of action.

    The Celtics blew things open a bit in the fourth before a late push got the score to respectable territory, so we're not going to expect similar output in the next one. That said, Edwards is a wonderful scorer and could come into a nice bench role while Gordon Hayward is out. Consider him in 16-teamers for end-of-bench scoring punch.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (illness) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

    With Brown ruled out, expect to see more of the usual suspects for the Celtics while rookies Grant Williams will have all the opportunity that he would like. Carsen Edwards and Marcus Smart should also see a bump in minutes due to Brown's absence

  • Romeo Langford
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Romeo Langford (sore right knee) and Tacko Fall (concussion protocol) have been ruled out for Friday's game against the Raptors.

    Langford had a scary fall in a preseason game that will hold him out for at least the first two games of the regular season while Tacko is recovering from a concussion. Neither of these players are on the fantasy radar in standard redraft leagues with Langford having more potential this season if he is able to outduel Carsen Edwards upon his return from injury.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Carsen Edwards made his NBA debut against the Sixers on Wednesday, going 1-for-3 from the field for three points in 11 minutes.

    Edwards can be used as a sparkplug scorer but he'll need more minutes than this to get on the fantasy radar.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Carsen Edwards shot 10-for-16 from the floor for 30 points with three boards, one block and nine triples in 21 minutes against the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Wow. Edwards was unconscious from beyond the arc, going 9-for-15 and putting on an absolute show. Eight of his treys came in the third quarter, where Edwards scored 26 of his 30 points alone. He will play behind Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart at point guard this season, but he is worth being on the radar in deep leagues and a name to stash away in case of injuries. Remember the name.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams will start Tuesday against the Cavs alongside Brad Wanamaker, Carsen Edwards, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams.

    Willaims gets his crack in the starting Celtics C carousel tonight after playing just 11 minutes on Sunday. There are a lot of cheap options to choose from on the Celtics for tonight's three-game DFS slate.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic.

    Kemba is currently getting drafted in the second-third round in standard redraft leagues. The Celtics are likely being overly-cautious with their All-Star point guard. If Kemba ends up sitting out, Marcus Smart, Carsen Edwards and Romeo Langford could see more opportunity. It is worth noting that Langford is listed as probable with a groin injury.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics have made the signing of rookie Carsen Edwards official.

    Edwards has been spectacular all summer long and looks like he could be a scorer in this league for years to come. There is a chance he can crack low-end rotation minutes in his first season as a ball handler behind Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart, making him a guy worth monitoring in very deep leagues.
