Gordon Hayward (right ankle sprain) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday’s game vs. the Bulls.
That’s good news for Hayward owners and hopefully he’s able to keep up his standard-league play from the past few weeks. Jaylen Brown takes a little ding if Hayward plays.

Jaylen Brown logged 25 minutes off the bench on Thursday and scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, an assist and a block.
Brown came off the bench and provided a spark for the Celtics in a high scoring affair along with Terry Rozier (19 points on 5-of-9 shooting with five triples, four rebounds, six assists and a steal) but both players have low fantasy ceilings due to their minutes when the roster is healthy.

Jaylen Brown will move into the starting lineup on Tuesday night with Marcus Morris sidelined by right knee soreness.
Terry Rozier will start for Kyrie Irving (hip), as expected. Brown's been playing well of late and is inching his way towards standard-league value. He should get a chance to continue the trend tonight in a cake matchup with Cleveland.

Jaylen Brown posted 12 points, two rebounds, two assists and two triples in Sunday's win over the Thunder.
Brown took advantage of Boston's injuries to post top-100 value over the last few weeks, and while we're generally not all that interested in Brown's services for 12-team leagues it's worth pointing out that he says he's finally feeling good after battling a nagging wrist issue for several weeks. We'll see how high he can climb by season's end.

Jaylen Brown had 11 points on 5-for-12 from the field to go with four steals, two rebounds, an assist and a turnover in 21 minutes during Friday’s road win over the Knicks.
The four steals were nice but the cupboard was pretty bare aside from those rips. Brown has put up surprising top-75 value in 9-cat over the last few weeks but will be hard pressed to keep any consistent value above the top-100 when the team is healthy. Gordon Hayward had 14 points, two 3s and two blocks in 21 minutes but the good games have been few and far between for Hayward this season (just top-135 value on the season).

Jaylen Brown was in the zone on Wednesday vs. the Hornets and led the Celtics with 24 points on 10-of-18 shooting, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in 30 minutes.
Sans Kyrie Irving, who was out tonight with a sore right hip, Brown stepped up and delivered on offense. He's stated that he's grown comfortable with his role off the bench and it showed in this game. He's not the most consistent Celtic out there but he is able to pop with big games every now and then. This is the first 20-point, 10-rebound of Brown's career.
January 25, 2019, 4:03 pmKyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics
Kyrie Irving (flu) is not on the injury report and is looking like he’ll play on Saturday against the Warriors.
It’s good to see Irving back for a possible preview of the NBA Finals. His return and corresponding usage puts a lid on Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown’s upside.

Jaylen Brown scored 23 points on 8-for-12 shooting to go along with six rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's 123-103 win against the Cavaliers.
The Celtics had this game under control for basically the entire second half, but it's still good to see Brown have big games. The talent we saw last season is still there, he's just stuck at the bottom of an extremely deep roster. He is still too unreliable from a fantasy perspective to own in standard leagues.
January 14, 2019, 9:51 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown scored 22 points on 9-of-18 shooting with two triples, six rebounds, two steals and a block against the Nets on Monday.
Brown started off a bit slow, but he turned it up in the fourth quarter to help the Celtics climb back after being down as much as 26 points with only 8:47 left in the final quarter. He scored 10 points within that time frame, but the team still fell short. Brown got a bump due to injuries tonight, but he still isn't a reliable player in fantasy due to his shooting inefficiencies paired with his low defensive numbers.
January 9, 2019, 9:42 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown put up 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting in a team-high 29 minutes in a blowout win over the Pacers on Wednesday.
He also added seven rebounds, three assists, two defensive stats and two 3-pointers to the box score. Co-youngster Jayson Tatum put up 20 points with four rebounds on 9-of-15 shooting. Brown is just inside the top-200, while Tatum is inside the top-50 so it is clear who is the preferred option of the two.
January 7, 2019, 12:50 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown has been playing through a bone contusion in his right hand for about a month now.
Despite the pain and discomfort, Brown has stepped up his game over the last couple of weeks and has been re-added to the starting lineup, at least temporarily, with Marcus Morris and Kyrie Irving out. He's still been the biggest victim of Gordon Hayward's return this season and is not a player worth owning in 12-team leagues. There are just too many impediments to consistent value.

Jaylen Brown made the most of his move into the starting lineup on Friday, pacing the Celtics with a team-high 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting, adding two rebounds, two triples, two dimes and three steals.
Brown has been trending up lately, scoring in double figures in four out his last five games on crazy .635 shooting from the field. This is a short-term boost in value while Kyrie Irving (scratched cornea) remains out, so act accordingly.
January 4, 2019, 7:50 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown will move into the starting lineup on Friday with Marcus Morris sidelined by a neck issue.
Brown scored a season-high 30 on Monday but has been more miss than hit as a fantasy player this season. Gordon Hayward remains the preferred option in the wake of Morris' injury, even coming off the bench. If you're dying to use Brown tonight seems as good as ever, but he's still not much of an asset in 12-team leagues.

Jaylen Brown hit 10-of-15 shots (3-of-5 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) for 30 points, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Spurs.
Brown needs to have a lot more of those before we're buying into any progression on his stat set issues. Percentages and low counting stats in relation to his talent level is why he's overvalued in standard leagues, but in points formats he's a must-own player.
December 27, 2018, 11:21 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown scored 18 points off the bench on Thursday against the Rockets, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including a three) with five rebounds and 3-of-5 hits from the foul line.
Brown's lack of statistical versatility pretty much kills his fantasy value. Owners can do better in standard leagues, but in points formats he gets a big bump. He also discussed his right hand soreness after the game. "It’s annoying man. I’ve been struggling with that for the last month and a half or so.” That's not going to help matters, obviously.
