Brandon Bass is starting in the second half in place of Kelly Olynyk for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

We don't know if this is matchup-based, or due to Olynyk's poor play. However, this is definitely something we will monitor going forward, stay tuned. He finished with eight points, five boards and one steal. Fantasy owners can keep him on the wire unless coach Brad Stevens says something.

Brandon Bass was impressive off the bench for the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting and adding six rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, and one block.

He looked great but starter Jared Sullinger played even better by posting 21 points and 19 boards. Bass may carve out a nice role off the bench this season but he won't be worth drafting in almost any format.

Brandon Bass, who has started at PF for the Celtics over the last few seasons, had just three points and one rebound in 16 minutes Wednesday.

He hit just 1-of-6 shots and the Celtics are high on Jared Sullinger, who is the new starting PF for Boston. Forget about Bass this season.

Brandon Bass suffered a corneal abrasion in Friday's scrimmage.

He is expected to be fine and it does not appear to be anything major. "I got a rebound." He said. "A minute later, Kelly [Olynyk] went for the rebound and poked me in my eye." Bass is projected to come off the bench behind Sullinger at the moment so we would not recommend picking him up in standard formats.

Brandon Bass has been working on his corner 3-poiners this summer.

He's attempted only two corner 3-pointers in his entire career and missed them both. Bass probably isn't going to be taking enough for it to matter in fantasy leagues. He'll come off the bench to start the season.
Oct 3 - 9:33 AM

Brandon Bass remains uncertain of his role with the Celtics heading into the 2014-2105 season.

Brandon Bass admitted that he does not know where he fits in with the rebuilding Celtics this season. "It’s kind of whatever coach wants to do," he said in response to questions about how much he will play. Bass and his expiring contract are a trade chip the Celtics will likely shop this season. Despite scoring 11.1 points and grabbing 5.7 rebounds per game in 82 games last season, he's still devoid of any kind of upside in standard leagues.
Oct 2 - 4:40 PM

The Celtics are reportedly making a strong push to trade Brandon Bass.

The Celtics are in full rebuild mode, and with Boston likely more interested in developing guys like Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk, the 29-year-old veteran just doesn't make sense on the team. However, Boston has yet to receive an enticing offer from around the league, and they are not interested in simply dumping Bass for nothing. But if Boston can get a promising young player, or draft pick in return for Bass, he will likely be dealt. As it stands right now, nothing is imminent.

Brandon Bass hopes to improve offensively this summer, after averaging 11.1 points on 48.6 percent shooting last year.

"Defense is mandatory for me every possession," Bass said. "I just want be that way offensively. I think that it's time to be able to play both ends of the court at a high level." Bass took nearly half of his shot attempts within eight feet of the hoop last year, but he was most effective between 8-16 feet. His fantasy value is buoyed by terrific FT percentages (85.8 percent last season), making him a player to target in the final rounds of fantasy drafts.
Jul 7 - 1:38 AM

Brandon Bass had 19 points, five rebounds and a block on 7-of-11 shooting in Saturday's win over the Cavaliers.

With Jared Sullinger and Kris Humphries out, Bass and Kelly Olynyk handled the big-man duties and both of them played very well.
Apr 12 - 10:31 PM

Brandon Bass scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists and four blocks in the Celtics' loss on Monday.

Bass hasn't had a solid game since mid-March and we need to see him do this again, if not multiple times before we pay him any real attention.
Apr 1 - 12:55 AM

Brandon Bass hit 8-of-12 shots for 18 points and four rebounds in 30 minutes on Wednesday.

That's the most points he scored since back on Feb. 21 when he had 20, and he hadn't scored more than eight points in his previous four games. Bass is always worth a look, but he plays for Brad Stevens, who tweaks with his lineups and rotations as much as any coach in the league. Just ask the owners of Kris Humphries.
Mar 19 - 11:23 PM

Brandon Bass hit just 2-of-5 shots for five points, two rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes on Monday against the Mavs.

Bass has really taken a turn south lately and he can be dropped in 12-16 team formats.
Mar 18 - 1:40 AM

Brandon Bass was held to single-digits for the second straight game on Sunday, going 2-of-8 from the field for five points.

The Pistons' defense isn't exactly locking teams down of late, but Bass' minutes have tailed off and the typically efficient scorer was just 2-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 at the FT line. He's been prone to slumps throughout the season yet he's managed to sustain late-round value thanks to his rebounds (5.9), blocks (0.9) and solid percentages.
Mar 9 - 9:21 PM

Brandon Bass scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes on Saturday against the Kings.

Bass scored 20 points with eight rebounds and a steal on Friday, and tonight reinforced the often shaky nature of his fantasy value. Jared Sullinger was also out tonight with a mild concussion, adding to the disappointment for owners that made the add. Bass is a much better fit for deeper leagues that can handle the peaks and valleys but he's worth a look while he's starting and making small amounts of noise.
