Jared Sullinger played 31 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday during a 101-88 loss with 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.
It certainly wasn't an eye-popping line, but Sullinger has been at 50 percent from the field or greater in five of his last six games. His minutes are back up after the nine-minute dud on Tuesday, so his owners can breathe a little easier. Dec 27 - 9:25 PM

Jared Sullinger turned it around against the Nets on Friday with 19 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

His previous 10 games have been awful, making just 38.6 percent from the field for averages of 8.1 points, 7.1 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks. Sullinger was losing some playing time and was at just 24.0 minutes per game in that span. Hopefully, this game gets him going, so keep him owned in standard leagues.

Jared Sullinger's downward trajectory continued on Tuesday, as he went scoreless in nine minutes and was benched for the entire second half.

This marks eight consecutive games with under 30 minutes for Sullinger, who is averaging a mere 15 minutes in the two games since Brandan Wright arrived from Dallas. Sully has enough upside to hang onto him for a few more games, in the hopes that he'll reclaim a bigger role in Boston's busy frontcourt, though owners in competitive leagues may have no choice but to dump him on the waiver wire. Kelly Olynyk replaced Sullinger as the Celtics' starting PF in the second half.

Celtics PF Jared Sullinger was conspicuously quiet on Sunday, finishing with nine points, six rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in only 21 minutes of action.

Sullinger scored double-digit points in 13 straight games to begin the season, but he's done it just twice in Boston's past seven games. His minutes are hovering around 25 per game over the past few weeks and the arrival of Brandan Wright is a real threat to his production, but Sullinger has too much value to cut in leagues with 12 or more teams. At the very least, fantasy owners should wait until the Celtics' rotations settle down following the Rajon Rondo trade.
Dec 21 - 9:23 PM

Jared Sullinger hit 7-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds, an assist and a block in 24 minutes on Wednesday.

Sully had scored either five or zero points in each of his last four games coming in, but finally broke out of the funk tonight. However, the minutes were low, while Brandon Bass scored 18 points in 22 minutes off the bench, and Kelly Olynyk added 15 points and a full stat line in 30 minutes off the pine. With those guys playing so well, Sullinger's days of racking up monster lines for the Celtics are on a hiatus. Hopefully it's a temporary one.

Jared Sullinger remained in his slump on Monday during a 105-87 win against the 76ers, scoring five points with 11 rebounds, two assists and four turnovers.

He made just 2-of-10 from the field, missed both free throws, and was 1-of-3 from deep. Sullinger made just 23.1 percent from the field in his last five games, averaging 5.0 points, 7.4 boards, 2.0 assists and 0.6 triples in that span. This is likely his low point on the season, so go ahead and try to buy low. He's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 15 - 11:28 PM

Jared Sullinger got some extra shots up at the Celtics' practice facility over the weekend.

It's part of his routine when he feels he's not playing well. Over his last three games, Sullinger is a combined 4-of-21 from the floor for just 10 points total. The skid shouldn't last for long, and we expect Sullinger to return to form sooner rather than later. Monday's game against the Sixers would be a good place to start.
Dec 15 - 10:59 AM

Jared Sullinger is one of the main reasons why the Celtics are on a three-game losing streak, as he is averaging more fouls per game (3.7) than points (3.3) in that stretch.

"Sully's a really good player who's had a couple tough games in a row," said coach Brad Stevens. "I think the most important thing we can do is encourage him, but we certainly need him to be good." Those are brutal numbers for Sullinger after a solid start to the season, but he should get it turned around soon. Even with this slump, he is posting mid-round value on the season and still belongs in all active lineups.

Jared Sullinger missed all six of his field goal attempts in the Celtics' 101-95 loss to the Knicks on Friday, finishing with no points, four rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes.

Sullinger started the year shooting a bit better than expected and he may be coming back to career norms. He's still a solid mid-round value and he should get back on track soon.
Dec 13 - 12:35 AM

Jared Sullinger scored 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with 13 rebounds and two steals in the Celtics' 113-96 win over the Lakers on Friday.

Sullinger is rolling with third to fourth round value this season and as long as he stays healthy he has a shot at keeping it up. Rajon Rondo wrapped up breakfast with Kobe and threw down 12 points, eight rebounds, 16 assists and a steal in the win.
Dec 6 - 1:17 AM

Jared Sullinger struggled vs. the Spurs on Sunday, going 4-of-11 from the field (1-of-3 from beyond the arc) for nine points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and four turnovers.

Sullinger only managed to see 25 minutes of action during Sunday’s blowout loss, but he should be better than this on most nights. Sullinger is quietly having a career-year this season, averaging 16.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.2 three-pointers, and just 0.8 turnovers per game. His arrow is only pointing up, and he’ll look to bounce-back Tuesday in a favorable matchup vs. Atlanta.
Nov 30 - 3:16 PM

Jared Sullinger was spotted wearing goggles at practice on Saturday, after he was apparently hit in the eye on Friday.

To be clear, he should be fine and there shouldn't be any doubt for his status moving forward. He was an animal on Friday, finishing with 23 points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He is quietly having an impressive season and owners have to feel good about themselves so far. We will update his status as needed.
Nov 29 - 1:37 PM

Jared Sullinger made four 3-pointers against the Bulls on Friday with 23 points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover in 33 minutes.

He was 9-of-19 from the field and attempted nine shots from beyond the arc. Sullinger has 10 triples in his last three games and is boosted his shooting to 30.6 from deep with this hot stretch. Sullinger is putting up career numbers in basically every category except steals and is a must-start option.
Nov 28 - 3:31 PM

Jared Sullinger set season-highs on Sunday for both field goals attempted (22) and 3-pointers attempted (nine), though he finished with only 19 points in a loss to Portland.

Sullinger was 8-of-22 from the field with three triples, while rounding out his evening with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block. He has a green light to shoot from distance, to say the least, and is blowing away his ADP through the first dozen games of Boston's season.
Nov 23 - 8:25 PM

Jared Sullinger scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in Friday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Both Sullinger and Jeff Green (12 points, six boards, four assists, one steal, one block) are rolling and should be in all lineups.
