  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (sore left knee) has been upgraded to available for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    With Aron Baynes (foot) being out, Theis has been putting up good numbers and should be owned everywhere. Now that he looks good to play, he should be plugged into lineups.

    Daniel Theis (sore left knee) is being called questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

    Theis has been delivering low-usage top-80 9-cat value over the last two weeks with Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) out. If he can’t go we might see Robert Williams (back) if he’s healthy enough to play or the Celtics might elect to go small vs. the Clippers.

  • Daniel Theis - F - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis played 17 minutes with Aron Baynes (foot) out on Sunday and was able to collect 14 points (5-of-6 shooting), two rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.

    Baynes will be out through the All-Star break and Robert Williams was out with a sore back today, so Theis got plenty of opportunity to get some numbers today. He's a nice deep-league add and DFS option for as long as Baynes is out and has a pretty solid stat set. Theis is unlikely to climb too high with Al Horford healthy but he can get to the top-200 neighborhood without much trouble. Horford had 17 points nine assists, two steals, a block and a three in 31 minutes today while hitting 8-of-13 from the field.

    Daniel Theis came off the bench on Friday but still did more damage than starter Aron Baynes, playing 21 minutes and producing 18 points, seven rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    Baynes is probably not 100 percent yet and was limited to 14 minutes, five points, three boards and two assists tonight. Theis looks like the better option for the duration of Al Horford's absence but it hasn't been a fair fight given Baynes' own injury. We like Theis' stat set but Baynes figures to take the lion's share of minutes once he's healthy, so you can make a compelling case for either guy in deep leagues.

    Daniel Theis started over Al Horford (left knee soreness) on Saturday and turned in a huge game with 22 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal, four blocks, two 3-pointers and an 8-for-15 shooting line.

    Theis was an absolute menace against the pitiful Bulls and somehow finished as a plus-50 in 32 minutes of work. That's the fourth-highest plus-minus in any game in the last 12 years. Horford is expected to return soon, which will really hurt Theis' value, but he is improving lately. After being out of the rotation earlier in the year Theis has played 17, eight and 17 minutes in the three contests preceding this injury-aided line. His versatility and defensive acumen makes him an option in 20-team leagues and he'd be a hot pickup if Horford was ever sidelined for multiple games.

    Daniel Theis will start Saturday over the injured Al Horford (left knee soreness).

    The Celtics' frontcourt is thinner than a shadow in this game with Horford, Aron Baynes and Robert Williams all out. Theis has a big workload ahead of him and is a fine daily play if you still have time to slot him in. Marcus Morris should be a good play as well. The Celtics will likely put Morris at the five in small ball lineups a lot throughout the night.

    Daniel Theis (plantar fascia) has been doing some light running and shooting work and is hoping to return to the Celtics next week.

    Theis was expected to be in a walking boot for two weeks and then be day-to-day from there, but if he's already shed the boot then he's a couple days ahead of schedule. We'll still need to see him go through a full practice or two before declaring a return imminent, but next week is definitely on the table if he progresses quickly. He won't be a fantasy factor but will give the Celtics a great depth option up front.

    Daniel Theis (plantar fascia) will be in a walking boot for two weeks and work his way back from there.

    Theis expects to be day-to-day once the boot comes off. He's not going to be worth holding in most formats but those of you in super deep leagues will have him back relatively quickly considering the injury he's dealing with.

    Daniel Theis (plantar fascia tear) is out indefinitely.

    Theis was not on fantasy radars and was only filling in for Aron Baynes, who is close to being fully healthy. If Baynes misses more time, rookie center Robert Williams could see extra minutes. Theis can not catch a break since coming back to the NBA as he suffered a torn meniscus last season. If there's a silver lining it's that Brad Stevens has said the injury won't be "season-derailing" and that while Theis is still looking at a multi-week recovery, it's still expected to be a relatively quick recovery.

    Daniel Theis (foot) will be available on Saturday.

    Theis might be called upon against the Pistons and their big bodies up front. Last game the Celtics opted to use Semi Ojeleye as their small ball five but that's not going to fly in this matchup.

    Daniel This (foot) is questionable to face the Pistons on Saturday.

    Theis is playing only 10.5 minutes per game this season but with Aron Baynes sidelined, Al Horford may see a very heavy workload against Andre Drummond if Theis cannot go.

  • Daniel Theis - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (knee) returned to action and scored four points with four rebounds, an assist and a block in Friday’s loss to the Hornets.

    Theis had season-ending knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus so it’s good to see him out there. He started the second half for Al Horford and played 14 minutes so it seems coach Stevens was comfortable throwing him out there. Theis was a valuable member of Stevens’ rotation last season but won’t approach standard league value with everyone healthy.

    Daniel Theis said Monday, "I feel great. My knee's fully recovered."

    Theis played well in a reserve role last season as a 3-and-D center before suffering a season ending knee injury. With Al Horford and Aron Baynes still around, plus rookie Robert Williams, Theis will have a hard time getting enough volume to contribute in fantasy if everyone stays healthy.

    At the Celtics golf tournament on Wednesday, Brad Stevens said that Daniel Theis is back to playing some 5-on-5.

    Theis wasn't doing 5-on-5 activity about two weeks ago so it's a positive step. He might not be cleared for training camp when it first opens but it sounds like he'll be ready soon barring setbacks.
