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.
Feb 24 - 9:25 AM

Aron Baynes (left elbow) will not return against the Pistons on Friday.

The team originally called him available to return from his left elbow injury, but apparently the injury was worse than originally thought. Daniel Theis has been tearing it up in the first half, so coach Brad Stevens may just go with him even more after halftime. He's not really a strong pickup unless he was already on your radar before today.
Feb 23 - 8:11 PM

Aron Baynes will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

It was an obvious move against DeAndre Jordan. Baynes won't have much fantasy value and Greg Monroe being on the roster is just another way he could lose playing time.
Feb 14 - 6:28 PM

Aron Baynes started Thursday's game but finished with just two points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 14 minutes of action.

The Celtics' physical veteran isn't rostered in most fantasy leagues anyway, but he looks like the biggest loser with Greg Monroe in Boston -- he hadn't played fewer than 16 minutes in over two weeks. The silver lining is that Baynes appears healthy after being cleared for concussion symptoms during Tuesday's game vs. Toronto.
Feb 8 - 11:41 PM

Coach Brad Stevens said Aron Baynes (head) will play against the Wizards on Thursday.

He is feeling fine after taking a hit to the head during the Toronto game on Tuesday. Expect him to start as usual, but he doesn't have much value.
Feb 8 - 11:52 AM

Aron Baynes scored eight points on 3-of-5 shooting Sunday to go with eight rebounds, two blocks and two turnovers through 21 minutes as a starter.

Baynes came through with the blocks, but it could be tough for him to find meaningful minutes once Greg Monroe works his way into the rotation. Daniel Theis recorded six points, eight rebounds, two assists, one block and one turnover in 20 minutes off the bench, but he might drop from the rotation entirely once Monroe gets out there. Baynes and Theis belong on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Feb 4 - 2:56 PM

Aron Baynes had a productive evening vs. the Hawks on Friday with 11 points, eight rebounds and five assists in 24 minutes.

The Celtics were shorthanded again tonight with Marcus Morris (knee), Kyrie Irving (quad) and Marcus Smart (fight with a picture frame) all out, so Baynes took advantage. However, the Celtics do have some reinforcements on the way in Greg Monroe and Morris is considered day-to-day, so Baynes could end up being a big loser in terms of fantasy. He was only relevant in deeper leagues anyways.
Feb 2 - 11:13 PM

Aron Baynes is back in the starting lineup vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

He averages 18.9 minutes as a starter and 15.8 minutes as a reserve this season, so this doesn't move the needle much. Coach Brad Stevens likes to mix up his lineups based on the matchup, so this isn't a permanent move. Marcus Morris will move to the bench.
