Tyler Zeller played just seven minutes on Thursday and had two points and three rebounds.
Even with Jae Crowder (personal) out, Zeller could barely find the court tonight. Kelly Olynyk played 23 minutes off the bench and had a nice game, and is a much better reserve center to take a flier on than Zeller. Feb 10 - 1:51 AM

Date:

Tyler Zeller scored 10 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers in 20 minutes.

He has been out of the rotation but had a chance tonight with Al Horford (groin) not playing. With Horford expected back on Saturday, fantasy owners can ignore this one.

Tyler Zeller (illness) was a healthy DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Zeller hasn't played since Dec. 29, and he hasn't logged more than 12 minutes in a game since Nov. 28. He's waiver wire fodder as long as Al Horford, Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk are healthy.
Jan 25 - 11:16 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

Zeller fell out of the rotation before missing 10 games in a row. With Kelly Olynyk playing well in the backup center role, Zeller belongs on the wire and will be lucky to see a few minutes on Tuesday.
Jan 23 - 1:31 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Blazers.

OK then. Zeller did go through some practice and he is getting closer, but the team will keep him out.
Jan 21 - 3:20 PM

Tyler Zeller was not on the injury report for Saturday against the Blazers.

He went through practice on Friday and should be available. Zeller isn't a lock for the rotation, but he could be called on if the team doesn't have Jonas Jerebko (illness). Most fantasy owners can ignore this.
Jan 21 - 3:02 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Zeller was able to get through a full practice on Tuesday, so while he'll miss Wednesday's game, there's a chance he'll be able to return to action Saturday vs. Portland. That being said, Zeller is a negligible part of the rotation in Boston, so his return to action won't have any meaningful impact in fantasy hoops.
Jan 17 - 2:30 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Zeller is finally feeling better, but Monday will mark his eighth straight game on the sidelines due to this illness. We'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, but with the main guys in Boston's frontcourt healthy, Zeller won't have any fantasy value.
Jan 16 - 6:04 PM

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Tyler Zeller (illness) is feeling a lot better and getting closer to a return.

The illness has forced Zeller to spend the past seven straight games on the sidelines, but it sounds like there's a chance he'll be able to return to action Monday vs. the Hornets. He'll likely be eased back into things, but he's not a significant part of the rotation anyway, so his return to action will have a negligible impact in fantasy hoops.
Jan 15 - 2:46 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Hawks.

He's not even traveling with the team and can't seem to shake this illness. Luckily for the Celtics, Amir Johnson (ankle) could return against the Hawks. Zeller was not in the rotation before the illness, so this doesn't have any fantasy implications.
Jan 12 - 1:07 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play on Wednesday against the Wizards.

The Celtics are going to be a little short on their depth up front. With Zeller and Amir Johnson (ankle) out, there should be plenty of minutes for Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko. We should see Jordan Mickey in the rotation and more small-ball lineups, too.
Jan 11 - 6:13 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

He's expected to miss his fourth straight game. Zeller was out of the rotation before the illness, so his absence will not have a meaningful impact on the rotation.

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

Zeller has missed three straight games but had played only sporadic minutes even when healthy. Over the 10 games in December in which he played, Zeller averaged just 1.3 points and 0.9 rebounds in 6.4 minutes. He has no fantasy value.

Jan 7 - 12:54 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Friday.

Even before his illness on Tuesday, Zeller has been out of the rotation. Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk have been the bigs next to Al Horford.
Jan 6 - 5:47 PM

Tyler Zeller (illness) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

Zeller was recently hospitalized with a bad sinus infection, but he's since been released from the hospital, and it seems there's a decent chance he'll be able to return to action Friday vs. the 76ers. In terms of fantasy hoops, Zeller is a negligible part of the rotation in Boston, so his playing status is irrelevant.
