Gerald Wallace (knee) underwent successful season-ending surgery on Tuesday.
We've still yet to see a report of an "unsuccessful" season-ending surgery, but it's good to hear that all went well with Crash's procedure. His minutes will most likely be gobbled up by Jerryd Bayless, Chris Johnson, and the potentially soon-to-return Avery Bradley. Mar 4 - 12:42 PM

Gerald Wallace will have season-ending surgery to repair his torn meniscus as early as Tuesday.

To describe Wallace's first year with Boston as disappointing would be quite the understatement. Crash, the once fantasy gold mine, a guy who could contribute meaningful stats across the board is a shell of his former self. Through 58 games this season he averaged a meager 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. Wallace was averaging 24 minutes per game, and with Avery Bradley (ankle) also currently watching from the sidelines those minutes will most likely be distributed to Jerryd Bayless, and Chris Johnson.

Gerald Wallace has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and is out indefinitely.

Wallace is also battling bone spurs in his ankle. Add the two injuries together, and the veteran could very well miss the rest of the season. The always injury-prone Wallace has appeared in 58 games this year, averaging 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists. His absence will open up tons of minutes for Jerryd Bayless and Chris Johnson, especially until Avery Bradley (ankle) returns.
Feb 28 - 12:06 PM

Gerald Wallace came off the bench on Wednesday and hit 4-of-8 shots for 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes.

He didn't have a steal, block or 3-pointer, but still played pretty well despite the benching. He's averaging 9.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.0 steals over his last five games, but he may have trouble playing this well if he continues to come off the bench. Jerryd Bayless started in his place tonight and blew up for 29 points.

Gerald Wallace will come off the bench on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

The Celtics not having Jared Sullinger (concussion) or Kelly Olynyk (toe) means Wallace will have to play some power forward. His value goes up a little bit tonight against another team with some holes in their frontcourt.
Feb 26 - 5:58 PM

Gerald Wallace started once again with Avery Bradley (ankle) out on Saturday against the Kings, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

Wallace got ejected after the game and made some funny comments about the refs so he might be looking at a fine. He's very hit or miss even when he starts and plays a boatload of minutes so owners should use him with extreme caution.
Feb 23 - 1:49 AM

Gerald Wallace made another start with Avery Bradley out with an ankle injury and had nine points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and a block on 3-of-5 shooting in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

He filled the stat sheet tonight, but his lack of scoring and shaky hold on a starting job makes us leery of trusting him. He also hit the floor hard on several occasions tonight, and he could find himself injured if he keeps playing like Crash. But as long as he's starting, Wallace should at least be on the fantasy radar right now.
Feb 20 - 12:40 AM

Gerald Wallace hit all three of his shots (including a three) to finish with eight points, three rebounds, four assists and three steals in a start for Avery Bradley (ankle) on Monday.

Wallace is worth a look in deep leagues if he gets spot-action like this but that's about it. He's been a mixed bag in this type of role so far this season.
Feb 10 - 11:19 PM

Gerald Wallace chipped in four points and three rebounds during Sunday's loss to Dallas, but he also turned the ball over three times in 15 minutes.

The veteran forward admitted that his "whole body is sore" after a hard fall on Friday, and even said half-jokingly that he should change his nickname since he's no longer able to 'Crash' around the court and recover as quickly as he used to. Despite filling up the stat sheet on Friday, Wallace has been too inconsistent for use in typical fantasy leagues.
Feb 10 - 9:19 AM

Gerald Wallace started for injured Avery Bradley (ankle) in Friday's win over the Kings, scoring eight points on 4-of-8 shooting with 12 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes.

Turn back the clock and count that money if you started him in FanDuel. Crash took advantage of a prime situation against a depleted Kings team, and with Bradley and Rajon Rondo expected back soon there's nothing really to see here. Wallace could easily go 1-for-3 for two points, three boards and a steal the next time out.
Feb 8 - 12:14 AM

Gerald Wallace returned from a family funeral in time to play on Sunday, but coach Brad Stevens opted to keep him out of the lineup.

The Celtics played with the lead throughout the first half and Stevens had already suggested that he'd give Wallace some time to gather himself emotionally, so his DNP-CD isn't too surprising. He should be ready to go vs. the 76ers on Wednesday.
Feb 3 - 10:58 AM

Gerald Wallace did not play against the Magic on Sunday.

He was expected to play and went through warmups. There has been no word on why Wallace didn't play after returning from a death in the family, but his fantasy value took a big hit today with Avery Bradley returning to the lineup.
Feb 2 - 4:47 PM

Gerald Wallace is expected to play Sunday vs. the Magic.

Wallace was away from the team dealing with a death in his family, but he has arrived in TD Garden and is expected to play. Wallace has the uncanny ability of putting up close to no stats even when given heavy minutes, however there is only one game played in the NBA on Super Bowl Sunday, so if you're desperate for a body go ahead and plug in Wallace.
Feb 2 - 11:55 AM

Gerald Wallace (personal) wasn't available for Saturday's practice.

He's dealing with a recent death in his family and remains questionable to suit up vs. the Magic, which is the only game played around the NBA on Sunday.
Feb 1 - 1:03 PM

Gerald Wallace (personal) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic.

Wallace had a death in the family and isn't sure if he'll be back with the team for Sunday. The 12-year veteran will be a very weak fantasy option even if he plays as Avery Bradley (ankle) is expected back.
