Terry Rozier, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Aron Baynes and Al Horford will start again on Friday against the Cavs.
This time, coach Ty Lue should be expecting Semi Ojeleye to be on the bench. Kidding aside, Lue also gave credit to coach Brad Stevens for the Baynes move, which helped out Horford in Game 5. Marcus Morris is still going to see minutes in the up 30 and will be the main defender on LeBron James. May 25 - 7:03 PM

Aron Baynes had six points, seven rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes in Boston's 96-83 Game 5 win over Cleveland on Wednesday.

Brad Stevens decided to switch up his roster for the first time this series and says that he started Baynes so that he could rotate his starting wings and two reserve wings throughout the remainder of the night. We'll see if he sticks with this lineup as the Celtics try to close out the series and advance to the NBA Finals on Friday.

Aron Baynes will reportedly start at center for Game 5 on Wednesday, with Marcus Morris shifting to the bench.

The Celtics are coming off two straight losses in Cleveland, so coach Brad Stevens opted to switch things up. The Cavs pounded Boston on the glass in Games 3 and 4 and Stevens is likely betting that Baynes will help neutralize Tristan Thompson's impact on the boards, while providing superior rim protection.
May 23 - 8:22 PM

Coach Brad Stevens was non-committal on the Celtics starting five for Game 1 on Sunday.

"We're going to play all the lineups," Stevens said. The lineup with Aron Baynes worked out against the 76ers because of Baynes hitting corner treys, but it's certainly possible they roll with Marcus Morris instead. It wouldn't be a surprise to see them go with Semi Ojeleye after his strong round against the Bucks. Morris is likely going to see minutes regardless, but Baynes could be tough to trust in DFS.
May 12 - 2:46 PM

Aron Baynes stepped up with 13 points, nine rebounds (five offensive), one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

Baynes shot a combined 7-of-16 from deep vs. Philly in the semifinals, which is more 3-pointers than he'd made in his previous 409 career games. His ability to hit from the corners gave Boston critical scoring while forcing Joel Embiid further out of the paint, and he was just as impressive defensively tonight, including standing up Embiid to preserve a lead with 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers skew toward small-ball lineups, however, and it will be very interesting to see how coach Brad Stevens deploys Baynes in the Conference finals.
May 9 - 11:36 PM

Aron Baynes scored a career-high 26 points with 14 rebounds (nine offensive) and two assists on Wednesday, going 12-of-23 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line in just 20 minutes.

Baynes took a career-high 15 shot attempts in the first half alone, and Brooklyn simply couldn't keep him off the glass tonight. He was an unlikely focal point for the Celtics' offense, but that's just because they were resting five players in a meaningless 82nd game. It's nice to know Baynes has this in him, but it doesn't impact his role for the postseason and beyond.
Apr 11 - 10:50 PM

Aron Baynes scored 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting Tuesday, to go with four rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 22 minutes.

This was Baynes' third game in a row hitting double-figures in the scoring department, but it was also his sixth consecutive outing without any defensive statistics. He's not worth owning in most leagues, despite the recent scoring kick.
Apr 3 - 11:14 PM

The Celtics won their fourth straight game on Wednesday, aided by Aron Baynes' 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting, 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

Baynes scored 10 points in the first half alone and his physicality is a great tool for coach Brad Stevens, especially in matchups like this (vs. Dwight Howard). He's a combined 10-of-11 from the field since returning from his elbow injury, but doesn't typically do enough to be owned anywhere.
Mar 1 - 12:11 AM

Aron Baynes (elbow) returned from a one-game absence in a win over the Grizzlies on Monday, scoring nine points with two rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He hit all four of his shots from the field and did all his damage in 16 minutes. He was probably slated to play a few more minutes, but the score got out of hand late. He's basically in a timeshare with Daniel Theis right now and usually only sees minutes in the high teens, so there's not much fantasy appeal here.
Feb 26 - 10:08 PM

Aron Baynes (elbow) will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Memphis, sending Daniel Theis back to the bench.

Baynes should be good for minutes in the high-teens tonight, but with averages of just 5.8 points, 5.3 boards and 0.7 blocks per game as a starter this season, that doesn't mean much. Theis will split the reserve minutes with Greg Monroe, rending both those guys non-options in most leagues.
Feb 26 - 6:20 PM

Aron Baynes (elbow) will play Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

Baynes will likely replace Daniel Theis in the starting five tonight, and with him back out there, there will be fewer minutes available for Theis and Greg Monroe. Baynes isn't a realistic target in most settings.
Feb 26 - 5:46 PM

Aron Baynes (elbow) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

When Baynes sat out on Saturday vs. the Knicks, Daniel Theis started and played 18 minutes with six points, seven rebounds, one assist and one block, while Greg Monroe played just 11 minutes with six points and three boards. The Celtics also played a lot of small ball with Marcus Morris logging 30 minutes. We should have an update soon, but there isn't a lot of fantasy implications here.
Feb 26 - 12:24 PM

Aron Baynes (elbow) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday and Daniel Theis will start.

He will be re-evaluated on Sunday after his injury on Friday. With Baynes out, coach Brad Stevens will be looking at Daniel Theis, Greg Monroe, Marcus Morris, Jayson Tatum and really anyone to fill the void. Theis is coming in hot off a career night and he is going to start, so he's probably the guy to use in DFS.
Feb 24 - 6:05 PM

Aron Baynes (left elbow) is listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

Baynes injured his elbow in the first quarter of Friday's win over the Pistons and was unable to return to the contest. Coach Brad Stevens said after the game that the elbow was sore. If Baynes is unable to play on Saturday, Daniel Theis and Greg Monroe would soak up additional minutes.
Feb 24 - 11:52 AM

Coach Brad Stevens said Aron Baynes is dealing with a sore left elbow but has not been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

Baynes started on Friday vs. the Pistons, but logged just three minutes before injuring his elbow. Daniel Theis was the primary beneficiary in Baynes' absence. Theis scored 19 points and grabbed seven boards in 21 minutes off the bench. We should have an update on Baynes Saturday afternoon.
