Jared Sullinger played just seven minutes with two points, four rebounds and one turnover in a loss to the Hawks on Thursday.
He had an off night on both ends. Sullinger had a bumpy ride this season, starting with a terrible training camp and even falling to the fifth big on the roster. However, he did get it going to become the primary offensive big man for most of the year. The Celtics are almost certainly going to address their frontcourt in the offseason, which will likely push Sullinger out of the standard-league convo to start the 2016-17 season. Apr 28 - 10:46 PM

Date:

Jared Sullinger finished the Celtics' Game 4 victory with only two points on 1-of-7 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 17 minutes of action.

Sullinger bumped knees with Marcus Smart in the first quarter but that wasn't the cause of his quiet game. He fell out of the starting lineup for Game 3 and seems destined to stay in a bench role vs. the Hawks -- he shot a combined 14-of-43 (32.6 percent) in his previous six games, and the Celts are better-served with Jerebko spacing the court as a perimeter threat.
Apr 24 - 9:14 PM

Jared Sullinger scored four points off the bench on Friday against the Hawks, adding four rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes.

Moving him to the bench was absolutely the right move against the tough frontline of the Hawks. Sullinger may play less on Sunday with Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) possibly coming back.
Apr 22 - 11:11 PM

Jared Sullinger will come off the bench on Friday against the Hawks.

He was terrible in Game 2 and it makes sense to bring him off the bench. Al Horford ate Sullinger alive while the Boston big man couldn't get into an offensive rhythm. His move to the bench is good news for Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko.
Apr 22 - 6:26 PM

Jared Sullinger played just 14 minutes vs. the Hawks on Tuesday, scoring four points on 2-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and one assist.

He fouled out of Game 1 in just 19 minutes and was benched at halftime tonight in favor of Evan Turner. Coach Brad Stevens seems to be leaning towards more small-ball lineups moving forward, so that's bad news for Sullinger's minutes. He will be a shaky option in Game 3 on Friday even if Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) misses another game.
Apr 19 - 10:48 PM

Jared Sullinger fouled out in his 19 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday, scoring nine points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

It'll be a game to forget for Sullinger. He was in foul trouble for almost the entire game and he was not very good on the glass. It'll be interesting to see how coach Brad Stevens uses Sullinger in Game 2, but he probably won't clear 20 minutes.
Apr 16 - 9:58 PM

Jared Sullinger scored four points with three rebounds five assists and no turnovers in 17 minutes against the Hornets on Monday.

He lost playing time again after moving to the bench in the second half on Saturday. Coach Brad Stevens has lost some trust in Sullinger since Kelly Olynyk returned, especially when teams space them out. His playing time in the first round will depend on the opponent.
Apr 11 - 10:20 PM

Jared Sullinger moved to the bench in the second half against the Hawks on Saturday with four points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 11 minutes.

It's one of the few times coach Brad Stevens made a matchup move and it didn't work in this loss. Sullinger's owners shouldn't totally press the panic button just because he had a bad game. Although, a matchup against the Hornets isn't the best spot for him.
Apr 9 - 9:59 PM

Jared Sullinger scored 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting during Friday's blowout win over the Bucks, adding five boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

Sullinger had connected on just 37.5 percent of his shot attempts in his previous two outings, so him shooting above 50 percent from the field was a welcome sight for his owners. Unfortunately he's only been a 15th round guy in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks, and with his minutes being impacted by the logjam in Boston's frontcourt partnered with his limited contributions on the defensive end, it could be tough for him to turn things around for the final three games of the season.
Apr 8 - 11:27 PM

Jared Sullinger played 21 minutes in another start on Wednesday, making 3-of-8 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs to finish with eight points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Boston is in the midst of a pressure-packed playoff race, as there are just 1.5 games separating the No. 3 seed from the No. 6 seed in the East. They're unlikely to rest anyone down the stretch but Sullinger's owners are more concerned about his shaky playing time (19.0 minutes in his past two games) and poor efficiency (43.7 percent shooting this season).
Apr 6 - 10:49 PM

Jared Sullinger double-doubled during Friday's win over the Warriors, tallying 20 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one turnover in 27 minutes.

The Celtics handed the Warriors their first regular-season home loss during regulation since Nov. 11 of 2014, so tonight's performance from Boston was impressive to say the least. Sullinger went 7-of-13 from the field and 4-of-6 from the stripe, giving him a solid true shooting percentage of 63.9 to go with his usage rate of 26.6. It'll be interesting to see if he can keep his momentum going into Sunday's game vs. the Lakers with Jae Crowder (rest) back in the fold.
Apr 2 - 4:33 AM

Jared Sullinger finished Sunday's 120-105 road victory with 17 points, 13 rebounds (six offensive), one assist and one steal in a season-high 36 minutes.

Sullinger made 7-of-15 shots and it's very encouraging to see his playing time increase despite the availability of both Kelly Olynyk (20 minutes) and Tyler Zeller (10 minutes) off the bench. While the minutes tonight are nice, Sully has proven all season long that he only needs 24 minutes per game to be a mid-round value.
Mar 20 - 9:24 PM

Jared Sullinger played just 17 minutes against the Raptors on Friday with six points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers during a 105-91 loss.

He had a cut on his face, but that's not why his playing time dropped. Before tonight, Sullinger had played at least 20 minutes in every game since Kelly Olynyk hurt his shoulder back on Feb. 10, but Olynyk's return could hurt him. He should still be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 18 - 11:39 PM

Jared Sullinger started vs. the Thunder on Wednesday and wound up with 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting, four rebounds, and one turnover in 20 minutes of action.

Sullinger's minutes may take a small dip with Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) back in the rotation, but he's proven all season long that he can help fantasy owners in 24 minutes per game. None of Boston's starters played more than 29 minutes in a lopsided loss tonight, so Sully's owners shouldn't overreact to this one-game sample.
Mar 16 - 9:57 PM

Jared Sullinger had 15 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 5-of-11 shooting on Tuesday.

Sully should benefit with Jae Crowder out for a couple weeks with a sprained ankle and has double-doubled in three of his last four games. Start him with confidence.
