Brandon Bass expressed a desire to return to the Celtics next season.
Bass is entering unrestricted free agency, and he admitted he doesn't know what to expect next. Bass also admitted that he didn't play well in the playoffs, citing a mental issue, and noted that his "mental game" is something he plans to work on during the offseason. He's likely to be wearing a different uniform for 2015-16. Apr 27 - 10:25 AM

Brandon Bass will keep his spot in the starting lineup for Game 4 against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

jonas Jerebko practiced with the first unit on Saturday and actually started the second half of Game 3, but it looks like head coach Brad Stevens will continue to roll with Bass. However, Bass has been playing poor and is averaging just 5.3 points, 2.7 assists, 1.7 boards and 1.0 block per game through the first three games of the series, so owners in daily leagues should probably ignore him.
Apr 26 - 11:21 AM

Brandon Bass struggled on Tuesday with two points, two rebounds and three assists, going 0-of-6 from the field and 2-of-2 at the free throw line in 15 minutes of action.

The Celtics were out-rebounded 34-46 in Game 1 and they lost the battle 39-47 tonight, though they did collect 13 on the offensive glass. Jared Sullinger's return has taken a chunk out of Bass' playing time and this is the third time he's logged under 15 minutes in the past five games, so this isn't a fluke occurrence.
Apr 21 - 10:00 PM

Brandon Bass hit just 3-of-6 shots for nine points, five rebounds, two steals and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

The Heat held a 17-point halftime lead and coach Brad Stevens seemed to be grasping for straws in hopes of getting back in the game. Eleven players saw meaningful minutes for Boston, while even Gerald Wallace came off the bench and played four minutes. With that many hands in the cookie jar, the Celtics are a potential headache for fantasy owners going forward. The Celtics are in a dogfight for the playoffs with Indy, Brooklyn and Charlotte, and fell a full two games behind the Heat with tonight's loss.
Mar 26 - 12:53 AM

Brandon Bass had 20 points, three rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer on 8-of-11 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.

That's an efficient line as Bass's surprising season continues. He's not making many headlines, but is averaging 13.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and is shooting 66 percent over his last five games, making him worth a look in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 12:37 AM

Brandon Bass scored 14 points during a 100-90 win over the Heat on Monday, adding nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and one turnover in 33 minutes.

He played 38 minutes in each of his previous two games, averaging 18.0 points, 11.5 boards, 3.0 dimes and 1.0 treys in those games. Bass has shown enough in the past two weeks to warrant a pickup in standard leagues.
Mar 10 - 12:33 AM

Brandon Bass blew up for 19 points and a career-high 17 rebounds vs. the Magic on Sunday, adding five assists in a road loss in Orlando.

Kelly Olynyk's return to action hasn't dented Bass' value, and he's now averaging 18.0 points and 11.5 rebounds in 38.0 minutes over Boston's past two games. He's a decent low-end PF to target as long as Brad Stevens is giving him such copious playing time.
Mar 8 - 9:23 PM

Brandon Bass scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, one steal and one three over 38 minutes on Friday against the Pelicans.

We don't fully trust Bass and it's likely he alternates good games with bad games unless somebody gets hurt.
Mar 7 - 1:54 AM

Brandon Bass played just 18 minutes and finished with seven points and four rebounds on Wednesday.

Kelly Olynyk was back, but played just seven minutes, so Bass's line is a bit concerning. Brad Stevens uses some interesting rotations, and Bass only had one foul tonight. As of tonight, he's no longer a reliable fantasy option, in our opinion.
Mar 4 - 10:53 PM

Brandon Bass led the Celtics with 15 points on Tuesday, making 7-of-15 shots with five boards, one assist and three turnovers vs. the Cavs.

He played 27 minutes, more than any player except Evan Turner (six points, seven assists), and the only other Celtic in double-digits was Isaiah Thomas (11 points). Bass is a sketchy fantasy option even with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) on the sidelines, but he and the Celtics should bounce back quickly on Wednesday.
Mar 3 - 9:32 PM

Brandon Bass threw down a vicious dunk over Andrew Bogut on Sunday, finishing the Celtics' tough loss with 15 points, 12 rebounds and one assist.

The Celtics led this game by 26 points but let it slip away in the second half, eventually falling 101-106 to the Warriors. Bass made 6-of-12 shots and 3-of-4 free throws, and his highlight-reel dunk can be viewed via the link below. He's a solid player to own while Jared Sullinger (foot) and Kelly Olynyk (ankle) are both out of commission, but his role may soon dwindle with Olynyk nearing a return.

Mar 1 - 8:44 PM

Brandon Bass played just 20 minutes in Friday's win over the Hornets, scoring eight points on 3-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds and one block.

Bass saw his minutes clipped with Jonas Jerebko (16 points, 10 boards) playing so well tonight and that's with no Kelly Olynyk (ankle) around, too. The emergence of Jerebko is a real concern but owners might want to wait a game or two before weighing in on a drop considering Bass has been fairly productive lately.
Feb 28 - 1:45 AM

Brandon Bass is set to become a free agent in the summer, but said that he is open to returning to the Celtics next season.

"If I’m wanted back then yeah, I would want to be back for sure," said Bass. "It’s been a blessing for me to be here four years, to finish out my contract here. I’m excited about that. Hopefully everything will continue to go in a positive direction." Bass has been pressed into a much larger role since Jared Sullinger went down with a season-ending stress fracture in his foot, and while his value will take a hit when Kelly Olynyk (ankle) eventually returns, Bass will probably be worth owning in most leagues for the rest of the way.

Brandon Bass scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and two steals in Monday's win over the Suns.

Bass is probably going to be a bit more inconsistent when Kelly Olynyk eventually returns, but he'll probably be worth owning for the rest of the year.
Feb 24 - 12:46 AM

Brandon Bass pitched in 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting during Sunday's OT loss to the Lakers, playing 40 minutes in the absence of both Jared Sullinger (foot) and Kelly Olynyk (ankle).

He added five rebounds, one assist and two blocks with only one turnover. Olynyk is day-to-day but Sullinger is done for the season with a metatarsal stress fracture, giving Bass a path to sustained low-end value. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect much more than points, rebounds and nice FG and FT percentages from Bass, but he's worth scooping off the waiver wire in leagues with 12 or more teams.
