Jared Sullinger made 8-of-15 from the field for 17 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.
He's likely going to have a bigger scoring burden on his shoulders with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) set to miss multiple games. Sullinger has really turned it on again over his last five, averaging 18.4 points, 8.8 boards, 0.8 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.2 treys. He's a must-start player. Jan 23 - 2:44 AM

Jared Sullinger played through an illness on Friday in a 119-103 loss to the Bulls with 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

Compared to December, his numbers look good and it's all about opportunity. Sullinger played just 25.9 minutes per game with 10.3 field goal attempts last month, but he's getting over 31 minutes and 14 shots per game this month. He should be a mid-round guy for the rest of the season.

Jared Sullinger (illness) is a game time-decision against the Bulls on Friday, but is expected to play.

He came with the illness on Thursday and he's certainly going to be playing at less than 100 percent. If Sullinger taps out, Brandon Bass would likely benefit the most. Kelly Olynyk could play some power forward as well. Sullinger owners can pencil him into their lineups.

Jared Sullinger was unable to finish Thursday's practice due to illness.

Sullinger and James Young both left practice due to illness, according to Jay King of MassLive. We'll have to check back on their availability for Friday's game against the Bulls, but Jae Crowder, Brandon Bass, and Kelly Olynyk would all be in line for a minutes boost if Sullinger is unable to go.

Jared Sullinger was outstanding against the Pelicans during a 108-100 win on Monday, scoring 27 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

While the other Boston big men are stuck in a wild rotation, Sullinger has held steady at 31 minutes per game this month, averaging 12.7 points, 8,5 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.7 treys in his previous seven games. He's back to being a must-start player.
Jan 13 - 12:01 AM

Jared Sullinger was awful against the Nets on Wednesday, making 1-of-7 from the field for two points with six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

He had three solid games to start the year, averaging 16.7 points, 10.0 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.7 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.7 triples. Sullinger will be fine and should get a nice matchup against the Pacers on Friday with Roy Hibbert (ankle) up in the air. His fantasy owners shouldn't be worried.
Jan 8 - 12:58 AM

Jared Sullinger was the lone bright spot in the starting five with 22 points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks in 33 minutes.

The other four starters scored just 18 points tonight in a bad loss. Sullinger is "back" after a quiet December, so make sure he's in your lineup the rest of the way.
Jan 5 - 10:39 PM

Jared Sullinger kept it going on Saturday with 16 points, 16 boards, two assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

He turned in a very sub-par December, averaging 11.2 points, 7.5 boards, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.1 triples on 44.4 percent from the field. Sullinger has turned it around in his past three games and he should be considered as a must-start player.
Jan 3 - 11:53 PM

Jared Sullinger had a terrific outing against the Kings on Wednesday with 20 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and no turnovers.

He was great on both ends and made 9-of-18 from the field. Sullinger's ownership in fantasy leagues was unjustifiably dropping and today's game is a reminder of what he's capable of doing. Coach Brad Stevens loves him and Sullinger looks like the safest big man to own in Boston. He was only posting late-round value in standard leagues over the past month, but he should rise to being a mid-round guy soon.

Jared Sullinger (ankle) will play on Wednesday vs. the Kings, but Marcus Thornton (calf) will not.

Sullinger wasn't able to practice on Tuesday, but it looks like he will be all set to play vs. the Kings. He has been really inconsistent for the Celtics lately, but he should be able to turn thins around and is still a must-own player. You can safely plug him into all active lineups.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 11:20:00 AM

Jared Sullinger (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday, and he is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Sacramento.

If Sullinger is forced to sit, Kelly Olynyk will be the primary beneficiary of his absence, while Brandon Bass and Brandan Wright would also see a minor uptick in value. Stay tuned.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 05:52:00 PM

Jared Sullinger (ankle) said he is unsure whether or not he'll be able to play against the Kings on Wednesday.

When asked if he'll play on Wednesday, Sullinger gave a vague answer of, "I don't know. We'll see." The Celtics play three games in four days starting on New Year's Eve, so they may take a cautious approach with the 22-year-old. If he's unable to play on Wednesday, Kelly Olynyk would see the biggest boost in his fantasy value while Brandon Bass would see an uptick in his minutes as well.

Jared Sullinger (ankle) will not practice on Monday, and Brad Stevens is unsure of his availability this week.

The Celtics don't play until Wednesday on New Year's Eve, but then have a back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday. If Sullinger misses any time, Brandon Bass is a candidate to start, but Kelly Olynyk would likely see an increased role as well. Of the two, Olynyk is the more favorable fantasy play and has eight straight games with double-digits in the scoring column.

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. He did tweak his ankle slightly, but he is expected to be fine moving forward.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 09:25:00 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.
