Jonas Jerebko returned to action on Monday but missed all five of his shots off the bench and scored four points in a preseason win over Phoenix.
He's not worth drafting in fantasy leagues, but as soon as Derrick Favors goes down with an injury, Jerebko could end up seeing enough minutes to be considered off the waiver wire. Oct 10 - 12:27 AM

Amir Johnson (right shoulder) will not suit up for Game 4 against the Cavs on Tuesday, according to sources of Michael Eaves of ESPN.

With Johnson set to spend Game 4 on the sidelines, we could see Kelly Olynyk move into the starting five, and there should be some more playing time available for Jonas Jerebko. For now, we'll be considering Johnson questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.
May 23 - 6:27 PM

Amir Johnson (sprained right AC joint in shoulder) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 4 in Cleveland.

Johnson tweaked his shoulder during Game 3, and while he was able to initially play through it, it sounds like it swelled up a bit overnight. He's headed for an MRI, so we'll have a better idea on his status for Game 4 once those results are made public, but if he is forced to the sidelines that would open up some minutes for guys like Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko. Gerald Green could also return to the starting five if Johnson is indeed unavailable on Tuesday night. Stay tuned.
May 22 - 2:33 PM

Amir Johnson (illness) and James Young (illness) will be available to play Monday vs. the Nets.

With Johnson back in action, Kelly Olynyk will likely return to the bench and Jonas Jerebko's minutes will take a hit. Young is available, but there are no guarantees he'll actually get out there tonight. Johnson is averaging just 6.4 points and 4.6 rebounds this season, so he can't be considered a viable target in most settings.

Amir Johnson (illness) was present during shootaround on Monday.

Johnson was forced to the sidelines on Saturday with the illness, but he appears to be on track to get back on the court tonight. We won't get official confirmation until we're closer to tip-off, but with Johnson likely to give it a go, we could see Kelly Olynyk return to the bench and there won't be as many minutes available for Jaylen Brown and Jonas Jerebko. Stay tuned.

Terry Rozier picked up a DNP-CD on Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

Rozier is shooting just 27.3 percent from the field in March, so maybe coach Brad Stevens is trying to send him a message. "That's not easy from their standpoint, and I respect that," Stevens said of not playing Rozier or Jonas Jerebko on Wednesday. "And that's hard. But we're going to need all those guys and we're going to need them to be playing great." Avery Bradley played 39 minutes in the win and Marcus Smart is basically a sixth starter, so Rozier is only looking at a handful of minutes at best in the near future.

Al Horford (elbow sprain) will not play Sunday vs. the Suns.

Head coach Brad Stevens said that while he doesn't believe that Horford's elbow issue will be a long-term thing, he's not sure when Horford will be able to get back on the court, so for now, we'll consider him questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers. With Horford out, Jonas Jerebko will move into the starting five, and Kelly Olynyk should see some more minutes with the second unit. Isaiah Thomas will be a one-man wrecking crew on offense tonight.
Mar 5 - 3:47 PM

Jaylen Brown and Jonas Jerebko will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Suns, with both Avery Bradley (hamstring) and Al Horford (elbow) unavailable.

Brown will be flirting with minutes in the high-20s tonight sans Bradley, so he could be someone to throw out there as a DFS punt play with what should be an uptempo matchup against Phoenix. Jerebko's numbers aren't very impressive as a starter, so he's not a great target today despite the increased opportunity. Daily Slant: Brown accumulates the majority of his fantasy points through points and rebounds. While Phoenix allows the 2nd-most points per game – and Boston has an implied total of 116.5 points today – they’re the 8th-best team in rebounding differential. Over his past 12 starts, he provided a 6X return or more as exactly as often as he was stuck under 3X (four times each). Although he’s in a good spot to score some baskets, it may not be enough to down a GPP, even with the savings.
Mar 5 - 3:40 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) and Al Horford (elbow) will not play Sunday vs. the Suns.

Bradley said that he's dealing with soreness in both of his hamstrings, but the plan all along was for him to sit out one game of this back-to-back set, and he fully expects to play Monday against the Clippers. With both Bradley and Horford unavailable today, Jaylen Brow and Jonas Jerebko will return to the starting five, and Isaiah Thomas is going to be extremely busy on offense. IT4 looks like a solid DFS option with a favorable and uptempo matchup against Phoenix.
Mar 5 - 3:37 PM

Amir Johnson returned to Boston's starting lineup on Wednesday and posted five points and two boards in 15 minutes of action.

Jonas Jerebko shifted to the bench tonight, and this situation will be in flux for the foreseeable future. "In an ideal world we're a little bit flexible on [the frontcourt rotation]," said coach Brad Stevens. As tonight's line clearly demonstrates, Johnson isn't a reliable option.

Feb 1 - 11:15 PM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) practiced on Tuesday and he's hopeful to return to action for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Head coach Brad Stevens wouldn't commit to Bradley being ready to return to the court, but he did say that if Bradley does get back for Wednesday's game he'll be dealing with a minutes limit. Bradley's return will send either Jaylen Brown or Jonas Jerebko back to the bench, and Marcus Smart's minutes will take a hit. Bradley said he's planning on getting in another workout later tonight, but owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Jan 31 - 2:34 PM

Al Horford (groin) will start Monday vs. the Pistons.

Horford will be returning from a two-game stint on the sidelines, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active for tonight's matchup with the Pistons. Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Jaylen Brown and Jonas Jerebko will join Horford in the starting five for tonight's game. Daily Slant: Despite Horford being active, Andre Drummond is the center to target in the BOS/DET game. Drummond has posted 20pts/17reb in each of the two games between these teams this season, and outside of one contest last year where he ran into early foul trouble, Drummond has dominated the Celtics over his short career. Boston ranks 20th in DvP against the center spot and with a starting front-court of Horford and Jonas Jerebko, the Celtics should continue to have trouble slowing Drummond.
Jan 30 - 6:12 PM

Jaylen Brown and Jonas Jerebko are starting again on Saturday vs. the Magic.

Al Horford (groin) did not travel and is day-to-day, while coach Brad Stevens wants to keep Marcus Smart's minutes under 30 off the bench. Brown had arguably his best game as a pro on Friday with a career-high 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two triples in 30 minutes, so he's worth a look in the short term in both season-long leagues and in DFS.
Jan 28 - 6:39 PM

Amir Johnson came off the bench on Wednesday and had six points in 10 minutes of action, making both of his shot attempts with five boards and one assist.

Brad Stevens was likely playing the matchup game here. Al Horford was able to spread the court more against Clint Capela as a center, while Jonas Jerebko was a better defensive option against Ryan Anderson. Johnson is only worth your attention if he's playing a steady 24-28 minutes per game, which hasn't been the case lately.
Jan 25 - 11:14 PM

Kelly Olynyk rolled his right ankle when he was tripped up by a ball boy while going through some shooting drills on Sunday, and he was unable to participate in the remainder of the practice.

At the moment, It's unclear how severe this ankle injury is, but for now we'll have to consider Olynyk questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets. If he's out, his playing time will be divvied up between Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround.

Jan 15 - 2:19 PM

Amir Johnson returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday with 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, five rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes.

Johnson was benched in a small-ball affair vs. the Rockets on Monday, but he retook the starting job against Orlando's bigger frontcourt tonight. The veteran is impressive on a per-minute basis, yet he's averaging a mere 19.5 minutes per game. Until that number increases, he's only worth a look in leagues with 14 or more teams.

Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) will miss "at least a week," according to coach Brad Stevens.

Stevens added that he doesn't expect Crowder to return "any time soon," so owners should brace themselves for an extended absence. Marcus Smart took Crowder's spot in the starting lineup after halftime, but guys like Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier and Jonas Jerebko could also see more playing time until he returns. Stay tuned for updates over the next few days.
Wed, Nov 2, 2016 10:50:00 PM

Tyler Zeller will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bulls with Al Horford (concussion) unavailable.

Zeller rarely does much as a starter, so he's not a great fantasy target tonight. Amir Johnson could spend some time at the five in certain small ball lineups with more minutes falling to guys like Jae Crowder, Jaylen Brown and Jonas Jerebko.
Wed, Nov 2, 2016 06:13:00 PM

Tyler Zeller will likely move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls with Al Horford (concussion) unavailable.

Through three starts last season, Zeller compiled meager averages of 5.3 points and not much else through 11.2 minutes a night, so him moving into the starting unit really doesn't mean much in terms of fantasy hoops. Amir Johnson should see some increased minutes sans Horford, while guys like Jaylen Brown, Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko could see an uptick in minutes in some small ball lineups.
Wed, Nov 2, 2016 12:20:00 PM

Tyler Zeller led an impressive bench effort on Wednesday with 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, two blocks and just one turnover in 16 minutes.

If you exclude Jonas Jerebko (1-of-8 from the field), the Celtics' bench scored a combined 36 points on 15-of-23 shooting. Zeller benefited from Kelly Olynyk's continued absence, and should continue to see 14-18 minutes until Olynyk returns.
Wed, Oct 26, 2016 10:58:00 PM

Danny Ainge said that the Celtics are hopeful that Kelly Olynyk (shoulder surgery) will be able to return to the court by mid-November.

Jaylen Brown and Jonas Jerebko will likely pick up most of Olynyk's minutes, with Jae Crowder earning some extended run at the four-spot. Olynyk is not worth drafting anywhere.
