Daniel Theis notched a 23-minute double-double on Thursday against the Bucks with 12 points, 10 boards and two blocks.
Theis has been fantasy-viable even in standard leagues despite playing just 21 minutes per contest on average. That should continue and both he and Enes Kanter are worth owning and should be counted on for late-round value.

Daniel Theis will be available for Wednesday's game against the Pistons after dealing with some soreness in his right knee.
Theis will split the center minutes with Enes Kanter as they take on Andre Drummond and company. Theis' return may limit the value of Kanter but both players have shown that they can retain standard league fantasy value even while splitting the center minutes.

Daniel Theis (right knee soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.
Theis missed Monday's game, and there is a good chance he'll be sitting out a second in a row. Enes Kanter would have the C spot to himself again after putting up 15 points and nine rebounds against the Bulls on Monday.

Daniel Theis (right knee soreness) will not play on Monday night.
Enes Kanter is lined up for a huge game against a weak Chicago frontcourt. Deep-league GMs will need to prepare for a short stint without Theis, who has been a solid source of rebounds and blocks all year despite fluctuating minutes.

The Celtics are listing Daniel Theis (right knee soreness) as questionable for Monday.
Theis continues to start at center for Boston but is clearly second in the fantasy pecking order behind a resurgent Enes Kanter. If he sits tomorrow, Kanter should have a field day.

Daniel Theis, not normally known for his offensive contributions, chipped in 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, two 3s, one assist and one block on Wednesday.
The offensive output was a welcome surprise, but that's not the reason Theis is on your roster. It was an above-average night for him on the season and will be one that'll be hard to replicate given all the weapons at the Celtics' disposal.

Daniel Theis (left knee soreness) has been upgraded to available for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Spurs.
Theis will split the center minutes with Enes Kanter on Wednesday. Kanter has been outperforming Theis from a fantasy perspective but both players are worth a look in standard leagues if they are on your wire.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Robert Williams (left hip bone edema) won't be playing "anywhere in the near, near future."
Williams hasn't played since December 6. Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis should continue to have some fantasy value as long as Williams is missing from the rotation. Williams can provide defensive stats and rebounds but has only been used sparingly this season.

Daniel Theis (left knee soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Spurs on Wednesday.
If Theis can't go, Enes Kanter would be staring at a heavy workload and makes for an enticing DFS option with the likely playing time increase. Keep tabs on the situation as we get closer to game time.

Enes Kanter continued to produce standard league value on Friday, tallying 14 points, nine rebounds, two blocks and two steals against the Cavs.
Kanter is continuing to land right around a double-double and is a solid source of blocks. It adds up to late-round value as he receives minutes in the low-to-mid 20s. Daniel Theis got the start and was no slouch with nine points, six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer of his own. It may wind up being a timeshare for the duo, but that could keep them right around standard league value, with Kanter as a 12-team option while Theis is more of a 14-team candidate.

Enes Kanter put together eight points, 13 rebounds and one block while coming off the bench agaisnt the Hornets on Sunday.
Kanter received 24 minutes in this one and he is beginning to emerge with late-round value now that he is getting minutes in the mid-to-low 20s. Daniel Theis did little in his 15 minutes (zero points, five rebounds, three assists, one block), but Grant Williams did go crazy over 22 minutes (12 pooints, 5-of-6 FG, four rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer).

Daniel Theis was able to cook up eight points, six rebounds, a steal and four blocks in just 22 minutes on Friday night.
Theis rarely amazes, but he sprinkles enough stats across the box to hold low-end value as a boring center option in 12-team leagues. He's not must-own, but he should be if you need blocks.
December 18, 2019, 1:43 pmGordon HaywardSF, Boston Celtics
Gordon Hayward (sore left foot) will not play on Wednesday.
Hopefully he'll be able to return for Friday's game. For now, Daniel Theis should see a bump in opportunities. Hayward had looked solid in his first three games back from a fractured left hand.

Daniel Theis scored 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting while adding five rebounds, one assist and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Theis played 20 minutes tonight and continues to get some extra run with Robert Williams out of action and has been a fringe standard-league guy (top-160/135 in 8/9 cat leagues).
December 9, 2019, 9:57 pmDaniel TheisPF, Boston Celtics
Daniel Theis scored 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting on Monday, adding a rebound, two assists, three blocks and two triples.
Theis produced across the board and took advantage of an easy matchup. He played 21 minutes compared to Enes Kanter's 17 (seven points, four rebounds and one block). Neither player is very attractive to own, especially with Robert Williams (left hip soreness) set to return soon.
