    Marcus Smart chipped in seven points (3-for-11 shooting), seven rebounds, six assists, one triple, one steal and a block across 32 minutes in Friday's win.

    Smart could not get his shot going but reminded us of the high floor that comes with his well-rounded game. Look for his shot to get back on track soon.

    Devin Booker was fabulous in this one, finishing just one assist shy of a triple-double in Saturday's 123-119 win over the Celtics, chipping in 39 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and finishing 14-of-15 from the charity stripe.

    Booker ruined the Celtics' Marcus Smarts' career-night, dropping 39 points on the road and finishing just shy of a triple-double. Everyone knows that Booker can score but the ball handling has steadily improved and he is averaging over six assists a game. He continues to be a top-30 fantasy option and games like these may push him into top-20 consideration.

    Marcus Smart had the green-light tonight and scored a career-high 37 points in Saturday's brutal 123-119 home loss to the Suns, chipping in five rebounds, eight assists, four steals and a franchise-high 11 triples.

    There is so much fantasy goodness oozing from this performance from Smart. With teammate Kemba Walker on the shelf for this one, Smart facilitated the ball in this one, finishing with eight assists. He also finished with four steals, which would have made this a great night for him for fantasy purposes. However, he let the ball rip from behind the arc, shooting an absurd 22 from behind the arc and converting on 11 of them. He ended up going 13-of-25 from the line finishing with what is statistically an efficient night.

    Marcus Smart said that he rolled his ankle in Thursday's game but he will be good to go on Saturday against Phoenix.

    Smart put up a heck of a line on Thursday with Jaylen Brown (thumb) sidelined with 24 points, five triples, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 36 minutes. We could expect as much on Saturday if not more with Brown ruled out and Kemba Walker (knee) popping up on the injury report as questionable.

    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) is questionable to play on Saturday against the Suns.

    This is the first we are hearing of the knee issue for Walker but hopefully it's nothing serious. With Jaylen Brown already ruled out, Marcus Smart could potentially see upwards of 40 minutes if Walker is ruled out as well. Semi Ojeleye and Brad Wanamaker would also see more minutes while Tremont Waters was called up from the G League for this game as well.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) will not play on Saturday versus Phoenix.

    Brown's scan showed no issues and he was close to playing so there is a decent chance he is back on Monday against the Lakers. He missed Thursday's game in which Marcus Smart filled in admirably with 24 points, five triples, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block so fire him up on Saturday as well.

    Marcus Smart is listed as probable with a left ankle sprain as the Celtics face off against the Suns on Saturday.

    This is our first sign of an ankle issue for Smart, but it would be surprising for it to cost him time on Saturday. Smart has been delivering steady doses of steals and 3-pointers to provide his usual mid-round value. Jaylen Brown is questionable (right thumb sprain) which could open up a few more touches for Smart.

    Marcus Smart scored 24 points to go with four rebounds, three defensive counters and five 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Smart had a nice bounce-back performance after he struggled on Wednesday and got tossed. He might have some stinkers but overall he's a pretty reliable mid-round value.

    Marcus Smart was ejected from Wednesday's game after getting assessed with two technical fouls.

    Smart started the game for Jayson Tatum and was able to see 34 minutes and produced three points on 1-of-9 shooting with three rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer and two steals. He had the hot head but not the hot hand tonight.

    Marcus Smart came off the bench on Monday and scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two triples.

    Now that Smart has finally recovered from his eye infection, he's back to putting up mid-round numbers on a daily basis. He's a fantasy stud and should be treated as such.

    Marcus Smart exploded for 24 points, five 3-pointers and three steals off the bench against the Sixers on Thursday.

    Smart will be back on the bench for the Celtics now that Kemba Walker is back, but he should still be a viable mid-round fantasy asset with his defensive counters. He's a great 3-and-D option.

    With Kemba Walker back in the starting lineup on Wednesday, Marcus Smart returned to the bench with a lackluster showing, making 3-of-10 shots fro 12 points, five assists and two threes.

    Smart had an off night in this one and is even coming off a stat sheet-stuffing fiesta on Monday. Owners have nothing to fear. A hold here is the only "smart" choice to make.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (illness) will be available to face the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Walker has missed three games with a severe illness but will likely push Marcus Smart back to the bench. The Celtics are a deep team, but Walker's contributions across the board give him top-25 value going forward.

    Marcus Smart continued to start for Celtics on Monday for an ill Kemba Walker and did it all with 13 points on 3-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, two threes, three steals and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Smart has been solid as a starter for the Celtics and should be counted on to land on a top-60 floor even when Walker returns to reclaim his starting PG role.

    Kemba Walker (illness) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Wizards.

    This will be the third straight game Walker will miss with an illness. Marcus Smart should continue to start with Walker out, while his usage gets distributed amongst Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward.
