Robert Williams III

    Daniel Theis is listed as probable for Saturday's game with the Suns as he continues to recover from right knee soreness.

    Theis appears to be largely over the issue at this point, as he appeared in back-to-back games on Wednesday and Thursday. Moreover, his status has improved as he was listed as questionable earlier in the week. Pencil him in for late-round value as he shares time with Enes Kanter. Robert Williams III (left hip bone edema) is out so that could give Theis a little more run, but it will not make much of a difference.

    Coach Brad Stevens told the media that Robert Williams (left hip bone edema) is progressing and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

    Williams is off the fantasy radar for this season but is a name to watch as he is only 22 years old and is only in his second season.

    Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Robert Williams (left hip bone edema) won't be playing "anywhere in the near, near future."

    Williams hasn't played since December 6. Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis should continue to have some fantasy value as long as Williams is missing from the rotation. Williams can provide defensive stats and rebounds but has only been used sparingly this season.

    Brad Stevens said that there were positive indicators from the latest MRI on Robert Williams (hip edema).

    Williams will meet with a specialist after Boston's current road trip. He's probably at least a week away from even being considered ready to return, but fantasy GMs should know that he can be a great source of blocks even in limited minutes. His eventual return should harsh the mellow of Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

    Robert Williams has been diagnosed with a bone edema in his left hip and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

    Well, at least this adds some predictability to the Celtics' center rotation in the immediate future. We've seen this type of bone bruise in the hip area linger, most notably in the case of Otto Porter's rookie season, so don't count on Williams making his return at the three-week mark. The Time Lord may make some noise later in the season, but his minutes will be limited even more so after his return, so he's a drop in all but the deepest of leagues.

    Robert Williams (sore left hip) has been ruled out for Thursday.

    Williams' absence will give more minutes to Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter. The second-year big man has been on the cusp of top-150 value for most of the season but his floor is shaky as a low-minute guy that needs to block shots by the handful to make him worth the trouble.

    Robert Williams (sore right hip) is being ruled out against the Pacers on Wednesday.

    With Williams missing another game, Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter will again handle the center minutes for the Celtics in a timeshare.

    Daniel Theis scored 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting on Monday, adding a rebound, two assists, three blocks and two triples.

    Theis produced across the board and took advantage of an easy matchup. He played 21 minutes compared to Enes Kanter's 17 (seven points, four rebounds and one block). Neither player is very attractive to own, especially with Robert Williams (left hip soreness) set to return soon.

    Robert Williams (sore right hip) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Cavs.

    Williams did not practice on Sunday and may need a few days off to get right. Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis will handle to center minutes with Williams out.

    Robert Williams (sore right hip) was unable to practice on Sunday and is doubtful for Monday's game.

    Williams is averaging 1.1 blocks in 14.1 mpg on the season, and his likely absence should give Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter more room to breathe. It's a frustrating timeshare that has the three Celtics bigs on the outside looking in on standard-league value.

  • Enes Kanter

    Enes Kanter played 18 minutes on Friday night but wasn't able to cook up anything interesting with eight points, four rebounds and three assists.

    Kanter is mired in a nasty timeshare and is outside the top-200 on the season, though he's been better with top-170 numbers in the last two weeks. Either way it's just not enough for a guy who cost a middle-round selection, and we wouldn't blame you for a frustration drop. The fact that he's trending upward, even slowly, is enough to warrant a hold, but don't be shocked if that ends up being nothing. Starter Daniel Theis played 15 minutes and had seven points, a steal and a block while Robert Williams had three boards and a steal in 13 minutes. What a mess.

    Daniel Theis, who left Friday's game with a knee injury, was able to start and play 17 minutes on Sunday.

    Theis had two points, two rebounds, two assists and a block. Enes Kanter was able to cobble together 11 & 11 with a block in just 16 minutes while Robert Williams picked up two swats in seven minutes. This is going to be a very frustrating timeshare, as all three offer standard-league appeal (despite Kanter's poor start) and do enough different things on the court to all stay in the rotation.

    Daniel Theis (illness) is available for Wednesday's tilt against the Nets.

    Theis' return will likely send Enes Kanter back to the bench. Theis is currently ahead of both Kanter and youngster Robert Williams on the depth chart and there is no reason to believe that that will change with the Celtics currently boasting the third best record in the Eastern Conference.

    Daniel Theis has been ruled out of Monday's game due to illness.

    Enes Kanter and Robert Williams should be in line for additional time on the court. Theis is an excellent rebounder and can contribute blocked shots, but his scoring has been sporadic of late.

    Daniel Theis collected a season-high 14 rebounds to go with eight points, six assists and three steals on Wednesday.

    Theis played for 31 minutes while Enes Kanter and Robert Williams only saw 12 minutes and nine minutes respectively. Theis played well and actually had the second highest assist count on the team tonight. He is the one to own in this frontcourt and has been a top-100 player over the last two weeks.
