Max Strus played only two games for the Bulls in 2019-20 before sustaining a season-ending injury at the G League Winter Showcase in December.
The rookie from DePaul went undrafted and was released by the Celtics before being signed by the Bulls. Strus scored 18.2 points per game in the G League, then averaged 2.5 points and 0.5 rebounds in his brief stint with the Bulls. All told, Strus could miss a full year or more due to the torn ACL.

The Bulls announced on Monday that Max Strus sustained a torn ACL and bone bruise to his left knee at the G League Winter Showcase.
He will undergo surgery in approximately three weeks after his swelling and discomfort resolves, and he is expected to be out for eight-to-12 months. The Bulls signed Strus to a two-way contract back in October. He averaged 18.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 13 games for Windy City and we hope the best to him as he is facing a long recovery.

Max Strus made his NBA debut via garbage-time minutes on Friday and recorded five points and one rebound in five minutes.
He's on a two-way deal, so don't expect an appearance that's fantasy-relevant any time soon.

The Bulls have signed G Max Struss to a two-way contract on Tuesday.
Strus appeared in four games for the Celtics this preseason where he averaged 5.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 14.6 minutes. The undrafted rookie from DePaul is not on the fantasy radar.

The Celtics have waived Max Strus.
The writing was on the wall with this one, as Javonte Green had been the frontrunner for the 15th and final roster spot.

Shams Charania reports that Javonte Green is likely the frontrunner for the Celtics' final roster spot.
Boston converted Max Strus to a partially guaranteed two-year deal last week, but he may still end up getting cut. Whoever wins the gig shouldn't be expected to play much this season.

The Celtics are signing two-way contract player Max Strus to a two-year NBA deal with partial guarantees.
Strus hasn't had any explosive performances in preseason but he was an outstanding scorer and 3-point shooter in college, which will give him specialist appeal for Brad Stevens when the Celtics need some pop off the bench. It's clear that Boston is invested in Strus' development, which makes him easier to target in deep dynasty drafts.

Max Strus scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting while adding three triples, two assists and three rebounds on Thursday.
Strus has been a big time scorer in his two years in college and that hasn't changed in the Summer League. He's still gunning and the ball is going in, but there's still a lot of work for him to do before he becomes fantasy relevant.

Celtics sign DePaul senior guard Max Strus to a two-way deal.
Strus averaged 20.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 3.2 triples. The high-volume shooter attempted 8.9 treys per game, making only 36.3 percent of them. He was named to the 2nd All-Big East Team with many high-scoring games including a season high 43 points against St. Johns. He will likely spend most of his time in the G-League but could get some opportunities based on how the Celtics roster shapes up.
