Jonas Jerebko said that he is excited about re-signing in Boston.
"It was my goal to come back after last year to this organization and coach and teammates," Jerebko said. "I’m happy the feeling was mutual and everything worked out." Jerebko agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal this summer, but playing time is going to be hard to come by in a very crowded backcourt. He will be fighting for rotational minutes during training camp, but he likely won't see enough run next season to matter in standard leagues. Aug 2 - 9:22 AM

Jonas Jerebko said the Celtics were his first choice in free agency.

"There were teams that were knocking on the door, but I just liked being in Boston and what we had going on," he said. Jerebko is hoping for an expanded role this time around with the Celtics, but he's going to have to assert himself in a crowded frontline rotation in order to get that.

Celtics sign forward Jonas Jerebko to two-year, $10 million deal on Thursday.

Jerebko is a good fit for the Celtics' pace-and-space game but he faces a lot of competition for minutes. He's only worth keeping an eye on in deeper formats at this time.

Jonas Jerebko will sign a two-year, $10 million deal with the Celtics.

Apparently his awful four postseason games against the Cavs didn't matter. Jerebko did come on down the stretch during the regular season and even put up a 16-point game in the finale, but this big of a contract is a slight surprise.
Jul 1 - 3:42 PM

Celtics president Danny Ainge said the Celtics would like to re-sign Jonas Jerebko.

Speaking on a local radio station, Ainge said he likes the "Swedish Larry Bird", but re-signing him will depend on the cost and the team's draft moves. Jerebko averaged 7.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.9 three-pointers in 29 games with the Celtics and would help provide the team with some veteran depth, but he's unlikely to be a major part of any team's rotation next year and isn't on the standard-league fantasy radar.
Apr 30 - 10:46 AM

Jonas Jerebko is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but he is hopeful to return to the Celtics.

"I loved it here," Jerebko said. "I’d love to come back. I’d definitely like to keep this going." Jerebko averaged 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game off the bench this season for Boston, and though he does help spread the floor with his perimeter shooting, it would be tough to imagine him having a significant role next season once the Celtics reload through the draft and free agency. He should garner some interest around the league, but in terms of fantasy, he isn't on the standard-league radar for the 2015-16 season at the moment.
Apr 29 - 11:32 AM

Jonas Jerebko scored four points with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He played just four minutes in Game 2 and he actually played well today. Jerebko was able to battle under the boards and led his team with three offensive boards. He only made 2-of-7 from the field, so he's not a lock to see this much playing time in Game 4.
Apr 23 - 9:49 PM

Jonas Jerebko, who was limited to just four minutes of action during Game 2 due to a calf issue, said on Thursday that his calf is feeling better.

Jerebko could see closer to the 18 minutes he got during Game 1 tonight, but it's very unlikely that he shows up in the box score in any meaningful way. His fantasy value is essentially non-existent.
Apr 23 - 6:02 PM

According to head coach Brad Stevens, Jonas Jerebko was limited by a calf issue in Game 2 which is why he saw just four minutes of action.

The good news is that the injury isn't serious, and he is expected to see his minutes increased in Game 3 on Thursday. We will leave him off the injury report for now, but we will have another update if necessary after their shootaround on Thursday. Expect his minutes to creep up in the high teens if his calf progresses well.
Apr 22 - 2:11 PM

Jonas Jerebko nearly fell out of Boston's rotation on Tuesday, finishing a loss in Cleveland with zero points in just four minutes off the bench.

Jerebko's rebound rate of 12.6 percent was fourth-best on the Celtics this season, ahead of Kelly Olynyk and Brandon Bass. He also had the best defensive rating (99.8) of any regular rotation player, so his absence was surprising, but the Celtics still gave the Cavs all they could handle with a modified frontcourt. We'll keep an eye on Jerebko's role as the series shifts to Boston.
Apr 21 - 10:05 PM

Jonas Jerebeko scored 17 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer on 7-of-10 from the field in 21 minutes against the Bucks on Friday.

It was his best offensive game since February and his timing is impeccable with Jared Sullinger returning. Jerebko could wind up losing playing time to Sully and he only played 18.7 minutes in March, so it's hard to be excited about his value going forward.
Apr 4 - 12:00 AM

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.
Feb 25 - 11:29 PM

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.
