Jonas Jerebko snared a season-high 10 rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday, adding two points on 1-of-8 shooting with one steal and one turnover.

The Sixers shot 39.3 percent, so rebounds were plentiful, and Jerebko earned a few extra minutes with the game under control in the fourth quarter. He's carved out a steady 15-minute role but isn't productive enough to consider owning in the vast majority of leagues.
Jan 24 - 9:40 PM

Jonas Jerebko played 16 minutes against the Nets on Saturday with five points, seven boards, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He made just 1-of-6 from the field and hasn't been playing well. Jerebko was playing minutes close to 20 towards the end of last month, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him lose even more minutes.
Jan 2 - 6:00 PM

Jonas Jerebko scored 12 points in 25 minutes against the Wolves on Monday with seven rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers.

Coach Brad Stevens has been trusting Jerebko a lot more. Even before the injuries to Jared Sullinger (back) and Amir Johnson (foot), Jerebko was getting minutes in the teens in his last three. He's still only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Jonas Jerebko played 16 minutes against the Hawks on Friday with six rebounds, one assist and no points.

He played a lot of clutch minutes and coach Brad Stevens continues to drive us up a wall with his rotation. Jerebko hasn't really capitalized on his 15.3 minutes per game over the last three games, so he might fall out of the rotation again.

Jonas Jerebko started the second half of Wednesday's game, replacing Amir Johnson, but finished scoreless with two rebounds and no defensive stats in 16 minutes.

The Pacers were going small with Paul George at PF, which may be the reason Brad Stevens once again altered his starting lineup. Jerebko has reached the 20-minute mark just once all season and he belongs on the waiver wire in the vast majority of leagues.

Jonas Jerebko replaced Amir Johnson in the starting lineup for the second half of Wednesday's game vs. Indiana.

Brad Stevens praised Jerebko's defensive versatility on Tuesday and one day later he gave him a mid-game promotion. Johnson was ineffective in the first half and Jerebko matches up better vs. Paul George, who is playing PF, so this could just be a temporary move. There's too much uncertainty in Boston's frontcourt to make any pickups here.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said the team value's Jonas Jerebko's ability to defend multiple positions.

While Jerebko hasn't been lighting up the stat sheet, he's found other ways to make a difference on the court for the Celtics. "That’s why [players like Jerebko] are so valuable," said Stevens. "If you've got guys that can guard multiple positions, especially that can swing from the perimeter to the bigs, and vice versa, it’s huge." Kudos aside, the Swedish Larry Bird is averaging just 4.6 points and 3.6 boards per game and can be left on waivers in standard fantasy leagues.

Jonas Jerebko (illness) returned to practice on Monday.

It was just a one-day absence for the forward, who did not come to practice on Sunday. He's fine.

Jonas Jerebko (illness) did not practice on Sunday.

He'll be fine when the regular-season comes around, but he's a candidate to pick up a plethora of DNP-CDs this season with Boston's improved depth. He's not worth a draft pick in most leagues.

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.

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.

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.
