Tayshaun Prince was not at the Celtics' practice on Thursday.
He's old and it's not surprising to see the veteran sit out some practices. He recently admitted he'd rather play for a contender than on a rebuilding team in Boston, and he'll probably get his wish as the trade deadline approaches. He has however worked his way into the rotation, scoring 12 and 19 points in his previous two outings. At best, Prince makes for a risky option in daily leagues, but he has no business being on a roster in standard leagues. Jan 29 - 3:55 PM

Tayshaun Prince said he would rather play with a contender than with the Celtics, according to the Boston Herald.

"Obviously I want to be in a winning situation," Prince said. "Everybody wants to be in a winning situation, make no mistake about it, especially toward the end of your career." He has been playing well with his new team and even played 30 minutes on Monday. Once Prince departs, it should open up some minutes for Marcus Smart, Evan Turner and Jae Crowder.

Tayshaun Prince scored 19 points off the bench on Monday against the Jazz, hitting 7-of-10 shots (including two threes) with two rebounds and five assists in 30 minutes.

The Celtics are probably trying to build his trade value and that makes him somebody to consider riding in DFS leagues, but even then we're hesitant to get fully behind that.
Jan 26 - 11:56 PM

Tayshaun Prince played 24 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday with nine points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Why? Maybe the Celtics are trying to help him build some trade value or maybe they like him out there to show some of their younger guys how to keep their fouls down. Prince has still been one of the worst per-minute fantasy guys in the last five years, so he can be ignored in most leagues.

Despite speculation that Tayshaun Prince would be leaving the Celtics via a buyout or a trade, coach Brad Stevens was impressed by his play on Monday.

"I didn't expect to play him nearly that much," Stevens said. "I felt pretty comfortable with him on the floor because he's real savvy, always in the right place especially defensively." Stevens added that he wanted Prince to remain a Celtic, but as much as he wants that to happen, it doesn't make sense for the rebuilding Celtics to give the veteran Prince minutes over younger players such as James Young and Jae Crowder. Regardless of what happens, Prince remains off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
Jan 21 - 9:32 AM

Tayshaun Prince made his Boston debut against the Clippers on Monday with two points, two rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 19 minutes.

He played down the stretch and coach Brad Stevens said he "didn't expect to play him nearly that much." Prince is very likely to be bought out, so fantasy owners can keep him on the wire just about everywhere.
Jan 19 - 6:15 PM

Tayshaun Prince said "all options are on the table" when it comes to his future with the Celtics.

Prince is expected to be active for Monday's game, but beyond that his status is unclear. The Celtics could attempt to trade him, or they could simply buy out the veteran so he can join a playoff-bound squad. The Clippers are known to have interest in acquiring Prince and could desperately use some help at the small forward spot.
Jan 19 - 9:39 AM

Tayshaun Prince and Shavlik Randolph are expected to be active for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

Both of these guys are entering a very crowded rotation, and are unlikely to provide any fantasy value in most leagues. Leave them on the wire.
Jan 18 - 4:33 PM

Tayshaun Prince practiced with the Celtics on Sunday.

Prince was initially believed to be waived by Boston, but it appears Danny Ainge is going to keep him in an attempt to use him as an asset in a later trade. Prince has no fantasy value in Boston's crowded rotation, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Jan 18 - 3:24 PM

The Clippers are reportedly interested in acquiring Tayshaun Prince from the Celtics.

It was thought that the Celtics would buy out Prince, but they will likely explore all their options including a potential trade with the Clippers. Regardless, Prince's days of fantasy relevancy are long gone, and he can be left on the wire no matter where he lands.
Jan 18 - 10:35 AM

Tayshaun Prince is expected to be with the Celtics for their game against the Clippers on Monday.

It was reported that Prince was going to be bought out by the Celtics, but nothing has been agreed upon yet. It's clear that the Celtics are thinking towards the future, so Prince likely won't have a role if he stays in Boston. Prince is well off the radar in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 1:18 PM

Tayshaun Prince will likely be bought out by Thursday, and he is not expected to be available for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

He clearly doesn't fit in with Boston's plans and a buyout is imminent at this point. Prince is well past his prime and will likely have a limited role wherever he lands. You can leave him on the wire with confidence.
Jan 14 - 12:16 PM

The Celtics are reportedly discussing a buyout with veteran F Tayshaun Prince.

Prince has no business being on a rebuilding team in Boston, so this news comes as no surprise. He'll sign on with a contender upon being released (Cleveland?), but he won't be worth owning in almost any league regardless of where he lands. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 13 - 6:53 PM

Tayshaun Prince will speak with general manager Danny Ainge about whether he'll be bought out.

The Celtics acquired Prince only for his expiring contract and chances are the 34-year-old forward will want to join another team. There's no need to pick up Prince almost anywhere for fantasy purposes.
Jan 12 - 2:32 PM

Tayshaun Prince is now officially a member of the Celtics.

The three-team trade was finalized on Monday, and now Prince is officially a member of the Celtics. It wouldn't be a surprise to see the veteran bought out and join a playoff-bound team.
