Aron Baynes had six points on 3-of-3 shooting off the bench vs. Cleveland, adding six rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Baynes tweaked his ankle but returned after having it re-taped, playing 17 minutes behind a starting frontcourt of Al Horford, Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum. It was a situational move against the small-ball Cavs, and Baynes should resume the starting gig vs. Minnesota on Friday. Even when healthy and starting, though, he won't help most owners.

Aron Baynes had his right ankle retaped and is available to return on Wednesday.

He went to the locker room, but his ankle tweak didn't look too bad. It sounds like Baynes is going to be OK.
Jan 3 - 8:55 PM

Aron Baynes will come off the bench Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

Baynes' minutes could trend towards the teens tonight going up against the small ball Cavs, so he's not a very enticing option in most formats.
Jan 3 - 6:22 PM

Aron Baynes tied his career-high with four assists in 23 minutes on Sunday, adding five points, 10 rebounds, one steal and one block.

Baynes continues to post understated fantasy lines that don't reflect his real-world impact on games, but at least he helped owners who deployed him tonight. He hit 1-of-2 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws, without any turnovers, helping the Celtics improve their record to 30-10.

Aron Baynes finished with 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting in Saturday's 102-93 win in Memphis.

The big man from New Zealand is enjoying his best offensive stretch of the season, averaging 10.5 points with 4.3 rebounds per game over the past four outings. He has connected on 20-of-29 (68.9 percent) from the field during the span. Despite the hot stretch he is really only worth using in deeper leagues since he only contributes in the scoring and rebounding categories.

Aron Baynes scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He started next to four perimeter guys and it helped open things up for his best offensive output since Nov. 8. Al Horford (rest) is fully expected to be back and isn't likely to be rested in the near future, so expect Baynes to go back to his 18-minute average per game. He's only for deep leagues, but congrats to anyone who used him tonight.

Aron Baynes grabbed a season-high 13 rebounds (three offensive) as a starter on Sunday, adding six points and one steal in 27 minutes.

Baynes held his own vs. Andre Drummond (15 boards) tonight, and wasn't at all limited after getting kneed in the stomach by Pau Gasol on Friday. This was one of his best performances all season, and the first time he's exceeded 20 minutes in two weeks, so there's no incentive to grab him in most situations. Just give him a look for DFS on Monday, since Marcus Morris (knee) has been ruled out and Al Horford (knee) is questionable.

Aron Baynes (abdomen) is probable to play against the Pistons on Sunday.

He took a shot to the stomach from Pau Gasol and had to go to the locker room on Friday, but it sounds like Baynes is fine. He'll likely be going toe-to-toe with former teammate Andre Drummond in the starting lineup.

Aron Baynes scored four points with three rebounds and two turnovers in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He took a shot to the stomach from Pau Gasol and went to the locker room, but Baynes is OK. This is kind of Bizarro World with Baynes getting hurt on contact from under the basket. While Baynes is a big guy, keeping him on your shallower fantasy team could be extremely painful... for you.

Aron Baynes went to the locker room in the third quarter on Friday, but he is expected to return.

He had some contact with Pau Gasol under the basket, and he went down in a heap. Baynes was not really limping, so it could be an upper-body injury or some sort of muscle pull. The Celtics will likely go smaller while Daniel Theis figures to see extra run.
Fri, Dec 8, 2017 11:22:00 PM

Aron Baynes started on Saturday with six points, one rebound, two assists and one block in 18 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

He did not start the second half of this game, but that's nothing new as coach Brad Stevens always goes on feel for his rotation -- he's really, really good at it. Baynes is only a low-end big in deep leagues.
Sat, Dec 2, 2017 03:46:00 PM

Aron Baynes scored two points with two rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 14 minutes as starter against the 76ers on Thursday.

The Celtics second unit was on a roll for the most part and Joel Embiid (rest) didn't play, so they didn't need Baynes too much. Expect him to come off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 10:59:00 PM

Aron Baynes will start and Marcus Morris will move to the bench against the 76ers on Thursday.

Even without The Process, the Celtics will still go with their big lineup. Baynes will be making his 12th start of the year, averaging 6.0 points, 5.9 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.9 blocks in 19.6 minutes per game over his previous 11. His value doesn't really change much here.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 05:47:00 PM

Aron Baynes scored 13 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one turnover off the bench in 22 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

He was right behind Al Horford for this game and dominated the second unit. Baynes could be in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Pacers because Marcus Morris is out. His fantasy value hasn't changed much as a low-end big man.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 10:14:00 PM

Aron Baynes will move back to the bench on Friday against the Magic.

Marcus Morris will get the start in this game against the smaller Aaron Gordon at the four. Saturday should be interesting to see what the Celtics do because Marcus Morris is expected to sit, but the Pacers have a smaller four in Thaddeus Young. Expect Baynes to play close to 12-15 minutes tonight.
