Daniel Theis

Fantasy News

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis played 13 minutes on Tuesday making his only shot attempt and finishing with two points, three rebounds and one assist in a victory against the Wizards.

    Theis missed the first part of the season with a torn plantar fascia in his right foot, but still managed to play 66 games. He offers the Celtics more value as a stretch-five than he offers fantasy owners. Theis will finish around 275/255 in 8/9-cat formats.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (right foot soreness) is available to play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

    Theis is the only player left in the Celtics frontcourt who sees a regular role, albeit a small one. With a likely starting spot and the opportunity to be the third option on Tuesday, Theis makes for a nice cheap DFS play.

    Daniel Theis (right foot soreness) is questionable to play on Tuesday against the Wizards.

    Fantasy owners who are still playing need to be sending all the good vibes they can to Theis, as he'd have an incredible setup if he can indeed play tomorrow. Al Horford, Aron Baynes, Marcus Morris and Gordon Hayward are all out and the Celtics might only have seven or eight active players. Theis has filled the box score in extended minutes before and would be a nice fit against the smaller Wizards.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis finished Saturday night’s game with 16 points on 7-9 shooting, four rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes off the bench.

    Theis is always worth a look whenever Al Horford is out since he makes the most out of the minutes given to him by the coaching staff. He's normally not a fantasy option when everyone is healthy so always take his production with a grain of salt.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis started the second half on Saturday night after Robert Williams got hurt and ended the night with five points, three rebounds and two blocks in 16 minutes.

    Theis got some extra room to work as the last big standing on the roster but Boston went small for most of the second half. If Aron Baynes and Williams remain sidelined by their respective injuries, Theis could be worth a look on nights where Al Horford sits.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford (knee) and Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) will not play on Saturday vs. the Hornets.

    This is more of a maintenance day for Horford as the Celtics have already discussed giving their vets some rest before the playoffs start and Saturday is the front end of a back-to-back set. Daniel Theis will have an opportunity to produce with both of the big men out.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    The MRI results on Aron Baynes’ ankle were positive and he hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

    We assume this means Baynes won’t play on Saturday which would put Daniel Theis next in line get minutes off the bench. We should have an update after Saturday’s shootaround.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (illness) played only nine minutes in Saturday's win over the Hawks.

    Theis was questionable because of his illness so it was good to see him on the floor at all. He's generally not a fantasy option when Boston's fully healthy, but with Al Horford expected to rest for at least three games before the playoffs there will be some streaming opportunities.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (illness) is expected to be available against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Theis missed Thursday's game with an illness but coach Brad Stevens said he expects him to be available for Saturday's early game. Theis was averaging only 7.7 minutes over his last five contests and is not on the fantasy radar.

  • Terry Rozier - G - Boston Celtics

    Terry Rozier and Daniel Theis are both questionable to play on Saturday as they deal with an illness.

    If Rozier is unable to play, Marcus Smart gets all the run he can handle while Aron Baynes is a likely beneficiary if Theis is out.

    Daniel Theis (illness) will not play on Thursday against the Kings.

    Theis was questionable as of yesterday but the Celtics will give him the night off to get back to 100 percent. He's a fantasy afterthought now that Aron Baynes is back, anyway.

    Daniel Theis (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Theis has lost a lot of his minutes since Aron Baynes returned, so this news should only have owners checking the wire in extremely deep leagues.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford hit 7-of-11 from the field to finish Friday’s home win over the Wizards with 18 points (no 3s), six rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and no turnovers.

    Boston had a very equitable offense on Friday with seven players scoring in double figures but Horford led the team. He’s been a top-25 play in 9-cat over the last month and he’s rolling now that he’s finally healthy. Daniel Theis chipped in 11 points, two 3s and a steal in the win.

    Daniel Theis (right knee soreness) is expected to play in Friday's game versus the Wizards.

    Theis has been dealing with some lingering soreness for some time now, but with the lack of depth in the Celtics' frountcourt it looks like he will continue to play through the pain. It would not come to a surprise to see Theis get some rest once Aron Baynes returns from injury. The Wizards are one of the league worst at defending opposing centers, making a decent streaming spot in extremely deep leagues.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (right knee soreness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Theis has averaged 2.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.0 block in 11.8 minutes over his last five games. Even if he plays, he isn't a good streaming option for Friday and should be left on the wire unless you need blocks in a deep league.
