Jonas Jerebko (flu) came off the bench on Wednesday with five points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 12 minutes.
Jerebko started with Al Horford (elbow) on the sidelines recently, but Horford was back tonight so Jerebko's role shrank accordingly. He's averaging 4.0 points as a starter and 4.1 points as a reserve and it's safe to conclude that he belongs on the waiver wire. Mar 9 - 1:51 AM

Jonas Jerebko is available to play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He was at shootaround and could get minutes. Coach Brad Stevens said that Jaylen Brown could play a little more, so Jerebko's playing time could come from the power forwards. That makes even more sense against a team like the Warriors. Jerebko is tough to trust in fantasy.

Jonas Jerebko (flu) was at shootaround on Wednesday.

The extent of his participation isn't know, but an ill player usually doesn't go to shootaround to help prevent others from being sick. In other words, Jerebko may have a decent chance to play. With Jaylen Brown playing well, the Celtics will almost certainly go smaller more often against the shooting on the Warriors.
Mar 8 - 3:13 PM

Jonas Jerebko (flu) is out for Monday's game against the Clippers due to a bout with the flu.

With Jerebko on the shelf it is likely Jordan Mickey picks up a few minutes off the bench. Amir Johnson also might see a little more run than he typically gets. Jerebko will have a full day to rest before his team returns to action Wednesday at home against the Nets.
Mar 6 - 9:09 PM

Jonas Jerebko filled in for Al Horford (elbow) on Sunday, but he scored just one point with five rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes vs. Phoenix.

Amir Johnson started at center tonight, Kelly Olynyk played 22 minutes, and even Jordan Mickey logged nine minutes. Jerebko has been nowhere near holding fantasy value this season and Horford is just day-to-day, so this doesn't have lasting fantasy implications.
Mar 5 - 8:20 PM

Jonas Jerebko will start Sunday vs. the Suns, with Al Horford (elbow) unavailable.

Through five starts this season, Jerebko owns forgettable averages of 4.6 points, 6.4 boards and 1.0 triple per contest on 40.0 percent shooting, so he's still not a great target in most settings despite getting the start.
Mar 5 - 3:52 PM

Jonas Jerebko (nose) played 10 minutes vs. the Kings on Wednesday, finishing with two points, two rebounds and two turnovers.

Jerebko broke his nose after colliding with Jaylen Brown on Sunday. He played with a mask tonight and said that he'll need offseason surgery, but the injury didn't cost him a single game. His availability is great for the Celtics' ever-changing rotations, but it doesn't matter in the majority of fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 2:02 AM

Jonas Jerebko (nose) tweeted that he suffered a broken nose on Sunday, but will be ready to play on Wednesday vs. the Kings.

The good news is that it seems he avoided a concussion. However, there is only limited fantasy impact here, as Jerebko is averaging just 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game this season.

Jonas Jerebko (nasal contusion) will not return to Sunday's game against the Clippers.

Jerebko took a direct, and very hard hit to his face via a Jaylen Brown shoulder, and the Celtics still haven't ruled out a potential concussion. He'll end his night with two boards, one steal and zero points through 10 minutes, and if he's forced to miss any additional time, Kelly Olynyk will likely pick up most of his minutes. He's scheduled to undergo an X-ray to determine if he's dealing with a broken nose, but for now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.
Feb 5 - 4:10 PM

Jonas Jerebko went back to the locker room after having a cut opened up on his head after a collision with Jaylen Brown.

Jerebko got caught with a Brown shoulder that opened up a pretty nasty cut on his face, and he should be considered questionable to return. If the injury forces him to miss any time, Kelly Olynyk would likely pick up most of his minutes.
Feb 5 - 3:55 PM

Jonas Jerebko played 19 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing a comeback win vs. Toronto with six points, three rebounds, two assists and one block.

Jerebko isn't the most stable fantasy option, to say the least. "The one thing that you get by bringing Jonas off the bench is you keep that Jonas-Kelly [Olynyk] pairing together," coach Brad Stevens said before the game. "That's been really good for us." Olynyk was a late scratch tonight but Stevens rolled with Jerebko off the bench anyway, and said his frontcourt will remain "flexible" to account for different matchups.
Feb 1 - 11:16 PM

Jonas Jerebko will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Amir Johnson will get back in the starting five to better matchup with Toronto, so Jerebko's minutes will likely fall back to the teens. As a reserve, Jerebko can't be viewed as a viable target in most settings.
Feb 1 - 5:45 PM

Jonas Jerebko made another start on Monday and hit just 1-of-2 shots (a 3-pointer), finishing with three points, but also had 10 rebounds in 24 minutes.

Jerebko is an interesting fantasy option right now since he's starting for Boston, but he hasn't scored more than eight points in his last five games and was coming off a scoreless dud on Saturday, when he played just 18 minutes. Whether he's starting or coming off the bench, Jerebko's a low-end fantasy option and you can probably find a more consistent performer off you waiver wire.
Jan 30 - 11:32 PM

Jonas Jerebko will start at power forward for Monday's game against the Pistons, sending Amir Johnson to the bench.

Through four starts this season, Jerebko owns meager averages of 5.0 points, 5.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per game on 38.9 percent shooting, so he's not a great target in most settings despite the increased opportunity as a starter. Johnson is also a negligible fantasy option in most leagues.
Jan 30 - 6:13 PM

Jonas Jerebko scored seven points in a start against the Magic on Friday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Al Horford (groin) did not play, so this comes with a grain of salt. We saw Jerebko start on Wednesday, but the bottom line is coach Brad Stevens just plays the matchups too much. If JJ can do it again on Saturday, maybe that'll help his case as an add.
