Jayson Tatum had a decent return to the court on Thursday with 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting with seven rebounds and three assists in a game-high 40 minutes.
Tatum had a decent return to the court if we shield our eyes from the poor shooting performance. Clearly the knee soreness truly was minor as he played a heavy complement of minutes. He's a strong top-30 contributor on a per-game basis. Gordon Hayward struggled even more than Tatum in this contest, shooting 1-of-10 from the floor and scoring just seven points in 32 minutes.

Hayward has been alternating strong and poor shooting performances over the last week, but is still a fourth-round value. Owners would like to see the see-sawing stop after tonight.

Gordon Hayward struggled scoring on Monday, hitting 4-of-11 from the field en route to eight points while adding six rebounds and eight assists.
Hayward was able to salvage his night by adding elsewhere as his shot wasn't falling tonight. The Celtics looked better with him on the floor so the 30 minutes are well earned and he should be a lock for mid-round value as long as he's healthy.

Jaylen Brown struggled mightily on Thursday night, making just two out of his 12 shots, scoring six points and grabbing five boards as the Celtics lost 109-98 to the Sixers.
Brown couldn't get going in this one and that was a huge reason the Celtics couldn't hold on. Gordon Hayward also struggled with eight points on 11 shots. Both should be around the top-50 for the season.

Hayward's full line was highlighted by 4-of-7 shooting from 3-point land as he also added three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block. Hayward's bounce-back season is in full swing and as long as he stays healthy, is a top-40 play.

Gordon Hayward double-doubled with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, adding 10 rebounds four assists, one 3-pointer and one block in Monday's 93-99 loss to the Wizards – yes, the Wizards.
Hayward struggled with his shot, but so did all his teammates in this one. Jayson Tatum went 8-of-20 from the field for 17 points with one rebound, two assists, one trey and two blocks. Don't fret too much about these lackluster performances from these two. They should settle into a top-50 to top-75 range on the season.

Hayward has been amazing this season and has made huge improvements from his play last season. He's a top-40 guy in 9-cat and should continue to build on his play as the new year rolls around.

Gordon Hayward scored 13 points, on as many field goal attempts, going 3-of-13 from the field, while adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in Saturday's loss to the Raptors.
Though it was an off shooting night for Hayward, he was still able to contribute in other categories in the contest. Owners have come to expect inconsistent shooting nights from Hayward as the Celtics have four legitimate scorers that can light it up on any given night. Nevertheless, he continues to get 30-plus minutes a night and will continue to rack up countable statistics.

Jaylen Brown had a career-high 34 points during the Celtics' 129-117 victory over the Cavs on Friday, while adding nine rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers.
Brown went 13-of-20 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line over the course of the game and has really become an offensive force for the Celtics this season. His game is still not the best for fantasy, but with his newfound ability to score consistently this season he is likely heading for mid-round value. Gordon Hayward (seven points, eight assists, five rebounds) largely deferred to Brown and Jayson Tatum today, but it is hard to imagine that being the case everytime.

Gordon Hayward (sore left foot) returned from a three-game absence on Wednesday and picked up right where he left off, tallying 14 points, five rebounds, six assists, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.
Hayward shot 6-of-9 from the field and didn't have to play a ton as Boston handled the shorthanded Raptors fairly easily. He should be back in all lineups and managers just have to hope that the next injury isn't right around the corner.

Gordon Hayward (sore left foot) will play and start against the Raptors on Christmas.
The latest round of treatment seems to have done the trick, and though Hayward is not going to log heavy minutes it doesn't sound like there's a serious restriction on him today. Feel free to get GH in all lineups.

Gordon Hayward (sore left foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Hornets.
Make that three games in a row for Hayward, whose continued absence is creating a little more anxiety for his owners with each missed game. Semi Ojeleye and Grant Willims will continue to pick up the slack while he is out.
