    Daniel Theis scored 20 points in 33 minutes of action on Tuesday vs. the Pacers, adding six rebounds, two blocks and three assists in a well rounded effort.

    Theis is ranked 81st this year on a per game basis and holds top-60 fantasy value over his last 24 games. That is a pretty large sample size, indicating that he is more than a viable option for fantasy lineups in all formats. Theis qualifies as one of the best waiver wire pickups of the season and has very likely been on a lot of winning fantasy squads this year.

    Robert Williams (back strain) is probable to play in Tuesday's tilt vs. the Pacers.

    Williams is third on the depth chart behind Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter. He can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues. However, he has shown that he has the potential to be a blocks specialist if he ever locks down a bigger role. He is a name to watch as he continues to work on his craft as this is only his second season in the league.

    Daniel Theis had 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting while grabbing seven rebounds, an assist and one steal on Wednesday.

    Theis appears to have secured his role as the starting center for the Celtics. This could lead to a top-80 finish for his 2019-2020 campaign, a very welcome surprise for any owners that stuck with him.

    Daniel Theis had 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting and added nine rebounds before fouling out late in the game Sunday against the Lakers.

    Theis has clearly usurped Enes Kanter for minutes in coach Brad Stevens' offense, as evidenced by his spot in the starting lineup. Theis got 31 minutes in Sunday's game and should continue to provide top-75 value the rest of the season.

    Daniel Theis had a huge game on Friday vs. the Wolves, playing 27 minutes and scoring 25 points with 16 rebounds, both of which are new career-highs.

    There it is. Theis is back and better than ever. Enes Kanter only played nine minutes tonight, so that certainly helped him, but keep Theis entrenched in your fantasy lineups. He looks fully healthy and took advantage on Friday.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams (hip) participated in practice on Wednesday and felt good.

    The Celtics are encouraged by Williams' progress and plan to ramp him up in practice over the next 1-2 weeks. Williams will be behind Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis in the rotation and will only have appeal as a block specialist. Kanter and Theis will lose value when Williams enters the rotation. Theis is a top-70 player over the past month in 26 minutes per game while Kanter is outside the top-175 in 19 minutes per game. Theis will likely hold standard-league value and Kanter will remain a low-upside option in 16-team leagues.

    Daniel Theis fouled out and was limited to 24 minutes on Thursday night, scoring 12 points and blocking two shots.

    Theis had to watch the late stages of this contest from the bench, but that didn't mean Enes Kanter replaced him either. Kanter played just 20 minutes for his eight points and eight boards as Brad Stevens opted to use Grant Williams instead, who didn't trouble the scorers. Theis and Kanter are both worth owning as top-100 and top-150 values, respectively.

    Daniel Theis (right ankle sprain) logged 30 minutes on Sunday afternoon, notching 13 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer.

    Theis' defense was much-needed against a dangerous Thunder team and he took the vast majority of the playing time, even though he was returning from a one-game absence here. Enes Kanter was limited to four points, eight rebounds and a steal in 17 minutes off the bench and his value will be dependent on how well Theis is playing when both are healthy. Both guys should be rostered in just about all leagues but Theis has more upside given his stat set and playing time trends.

    Daniel Theis (right ankle sprain) will suit up in Sunday's matchup vs. the Thunder.

    He sat out of Friday's matchup and has been dealing with nagging injuries for the past couple of weeks. The good news is he should play in tonight's game and although he isn't the flashiest player, he deserves to be owned in most leagues.

    Daniel Theis will remain out with a right ankle sprain for Friday's matchup vs. the Hawks.

    Theis has been solid, yet unspectacular this season and warrants a roster spot in standard leagues. Enes Kanter and Grant Williams will see a boost in value for as long as Theis remains out. Kanter and Theis were both winners from a fantasy perspective at the trade deadline as the Celtics did not trade for a center as many speculated that they would.

    Enes Kanter (right hip contusion) will start on Wednesday vs. the Magic.

    Kanter will start on Wednesday and should see extended run with Daniel Thies and Robert Williams out.

    Enes Kanter (right hip contusion) will be available for Wednesday's game.

    Kanter had previously been considered probable. With Daniel Theis and Robert Williams out, he's in a nice situation against the Magic.

    Daniel Theis (right ankle sprain) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    With Theis out for this one, Enes Kanter will be looking at ample minutes at C. Kanter had eight points, nine rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes of action in his return to the court on Monday.

    Enes Kanter (right hip contusion) is being listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.

    This will be Kanter's second game back after a five-game absence. The Celtics will be without Daniel Theis and Robert Williams in this one, opening up ample minutes for Kanter. He may have been dropped in a few leagues and remains a nice pickup for rebounds, high percentages and double-digit points.

    Daniel Theis (right ankle) was being evaluated for a concussion on Monday in addition to his ankle issue.

    Theis did not end up returning to Monday's game despite getting the okay. His ankle had some swelling that kept him on the bench. Pay attention to how banged up he is prior to his next game on Wednesday.
