Jonas Jerebko double-doubled off the bench on Friday, scoring 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with 10 rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes.
Jerebko fits the Celtics' spread attack very well and he's worth a very hard look right now. He has only averaged 16.5 minutes over his last three games, posting 12.0 points with 2.3 treys, 5.3 boards, 1.7 assists and 0.6 combined steals and blocks in that span. With the way he has looked lately, the playing time should go up. Feb 28 - 1:31 AM

Jonas Jerebko played some center during Boston's win over New York on Wednesday.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens admitted he was "throwing darts" when he put together the lineup combination that had the 27-year-old at center, but liked what he saw. "He’s got ability to stretch the floor and he does fit well with what we’re trying to do," Stevens said. He added, "He's a big that can shoot, play the 3 or the 4, space the floor. So I like his skill set and I think he’s excited about being here." It's worth monitoring Jerebko's playing time on the rebuilding Celtics, but he's better off left on waivers for now.

Jonas Jerebko came off the bench to hit 7-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in just 21 minutes on Wednesday.

This was easily a season high for Jerebko and his best game of the year, as the Tyler Zeller was in foul trouble and the Celtics went small. Keep an eye on him, but it's highly doubtful we'll see him do this again any time soon. Especially since they were playing against the Knicks, aka the worst team in the league.

Updating a previous report, Jonas Jerebko (illness) will be available to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

Head coach Brad Stevens hinter earlier that Jerebko might not play even if he dresses, so owners should be aware of that before plugging him into lineups. There is plenty of opportunity in the Boston frontcourt now that Jared Sullinger (foot) is done for the season, so owners in deep leagues will want to monitor Jerebko closely.

Jonas Jerebko (illness) is questionable to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

Head coach Brad Stevens said that Jerebko may not play even if he does dress, so owners will want to avoid this situation if possible. Jerebko could potentially carve out a decent role in Boston with Jared Sullinger (foot) out for the season, but it looks like his debut with the Celtics could be pushed back.
Feb 22 - 8:03 PM

Speaking to the media following Sunday's shootaround, Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens acknowledged that with both Kelly Olynyk (ankle) and Jared Sullinger (foot) unavailable, Jonas Jerebko could be forced into the rotation.

"[Jerebko] has got the ability to stretch the floor. He does fit well with what we're trying to do, so [giving him minutes] makes a lot of sense," Stevens said, replying to a question on whether injuries push Jerebko's possible contributions to the forefront. "But again, I don't know exactly how that will play itself out in terms of minutes [Sunday night against the Lakers]." We'll let you know how the rotations play out following the game, but Jerebko may be able to muster some short-term value in deeper leagues with the Celtics banged up.
Feb 22 - 7:52 PM

Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome will be available for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

While they'll be available to play, both Datome and Jerebko are stepping into a very crowded rotation in Boston, and they're unlikely to see major minutes during their first game with their new team. Jerebko does have a shot of getting some minutes with Jared Sullinger (foot) being ruled out for the remainder of the season, but he's very unlikely to gain any sort of relevancy in standard leagues as a bench player in Boston.
Feb 22 - 2:14 PM

Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome will have a chance to prove whether or not they will fit into Boston's system.

"We wanted to see how those two players fit with us," Ainge said. "They’re players we’ve liked before that we watched play and develop, and we want to see how they fit in our system. We want to see how they fit with our coaches and mesh with our players. Datome is a great shooter and Jerebko is a bigger perimeter player who can do a lot of the things Kelly [Olynyk] does." While Jerebko could potentially carve out a decent role with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) and Jared Sullinger (foot) sidelined, owners in most leagues can simply use a wait-and-see approach here, as both players have a lot of work to do in order to pop up on the fantasy radar.
Feb 21 - 10:24 AM

Jonas Jerebko will not play against the Kings on Friday.

He will join the team in Los Angeles for Sunday's game. Jerebko will likely get minutes, but he's not very effective at filling the stat sheet. Just watch him for now.
Feb 20 - 8:39 PM

Jonas Jerebko is expected to get minutes for the Celtics, but is not expected to play on Friday night against the Kings.

The Celtics are paper thin up front with Jared Sullinger (leg) out indefinitely and Kelly Olynyk (ankle) day-to-day. Jerebko isn't a strong rebounder and a whopping 68.2 percent of his shots come without a dribble, so it's hard to imagine him behind highly involved in the offense. Keep an eye on him in deep leagues, though.

Jonas Jerebko was traded to the Celtics on Thursday.

He was playing just 10.5 minutes per game in February and had two DNPs. Jerebko is probably not going to be in the rotation with the Celtics and can be left on the wire.
Feb 19 - 3:38 PM

Jonas Jerebko is not even considering returning to Europe when he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season.

"No I’m in the NBA," said Jerebko. "That’s it. I’m not even considering going overseas right now. The NBA is where I want to be. I want to stay in this league." Jerebko may be able to land another NBA contract, but as a guy that is averaging a meager 5.6 points and 3.2 rebounds on the season, he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Jan 30 - 5:38 PM

Jonas Jerebko picked up another DNP-CD on Tuesday against the Cavaliers.

He has essentially been replaced in the rotation by Anthony Tolliver, and it was the second time in the last five games that he didn't play at all. If this game is any indication, it's safe to drop Jerebko in almost all leagues.
Jan 27 - 10:28 PM

Jonas Jerebko didn't really build off a solid performance on Saturday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and a steal.

Jerebko didn't play bad but he wasn't able to push himself into the 12-team discussion tonight. It could happen at some point, and 26 minutes off the bench is a solid amount of run so keep an eye on him.
Jan 12 - 10:26 PM

Jonas Jerebko hit a dagger 3-pointer against the Nets on Saturday, finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

His minutes were down before tonight with an average of just 15.7 per game over his previous three. Jerebko does have a lot of potential because he hits treys and is decent in steals, but it's hard to grab him until he gets regular minutes.
