Jeff Green will start his 82nd game of the season on Wednesday.

After missing the entire 2011-12 season, Green has now missed one game over the past two seasons. He's averaging a career-high 16.8 points, 1.6 threes, 4.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals on the season, but admitted that trying to be a go-to scorer has been a difficult transition.
Apr 16 - 11:28 AM

Jeff Green scored 27 points during Monday's 113-108 loss to the Sixers to go with three boards, one assist, three steals and two 3-pointers.

He's basically been two different players all season. There's been the Green who will take horrible contested jumpers, and there's the aggressive one who will attack the rim like he did tonight. On the whole, it's been a disappointing season for Green after really coming on strong in 2012-13.
Apr 14 - 10:24 PM

Kelly Olynyk scored a career-high 28 points vs. the Sixers on Monday to go with nine boards, three assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He dropped 25 points on Saturday and has suddenly become the go-to frontcourt guy in Boston. The Celtics are likely to have Jared Sullinger (ankle) and Kris Humphries (knee) in Wednesday's game and will give the rookie big minutes in that game. Olynyk looks like a must-start player vs. the Wizards in the season finale.
Apr 14 - 10:18 PM

Rajon Rondo returned to the lineup on Monday vs. the Sixers, scoring eight points with 11 boards, 14 assists and two steals in 35 minutes.

He was popped in the nose in the first quarter and had to leave the game, but he made it back without incident and looked fine. Rondo missed the last two games due to a shin injury and should be ready to go for Wednesday's finale. Although, he did say after the game he's not sure if he'll play against the Wizards.
Apr 14 - 10:15 PM

Rajon Rondo (shin) will start against the Sixers on Monday.

He missed the last two games due to an out-of-nowhere shin issue, but he's likely close to 100 percent tonight. Rondo gets a great matchup in his return and figures to hit the ground running. If you were planning to use Phil Pressey tonight, it might be time to reconsider.
Apr 14 - 6:13 PM

Rajon Rondo (shin) is a game-time decision for Monday's game vs. the Sixers.

He went through a full shootaround and it sounds like he has a chance to play. His shin injury kept him out of his previous two games and it allowed Phil Pressey to step up. We should have an update on Rondo shortly.
Apr 14 - 5:58 PM

Kris Humphries (knee) is unlikely to play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

He has tendinitis in his knee and it was a bit of a surprise to even see him on the court for 11 minutes on Friday. Humphries can be cut in all fantasy leagues while Kelly Olynyk and Brandon Bass will get some extra playing time in a very thin frontcourt.
Apr 14 - 5:53 PM

Jerryd Bayless (knee) is unlikely to play against the Wizards on Wednesday, according to coach Brad Stevens.

He was ruled out for Monday's game very early and his knee injury from Friday has already cost him one game. Bayless was brought on the team more for his contract, but he played fairly well in his 41 games with the Celtics. Avery Bradley and Phil Pressey will get some extra run.
Apr 14 - 5:50 PM

Coach Brad Stevens said Jared Sullinger (ankle) is likely out for the season.

He didn't travel for Monday's game and it would almost be a shock to see Sullinger back out there. He had an interesting season and shot a whopping 208 shots from beyond the arc, which doesn't make much sense considering he made just 26.9 percent of them. Fantasy owners can expect Brandon Bass and Kelly Olynyk to see big minutes.
Apr 14 - 5:47 PM

Jerryd Bayless (knee) didn't travel with the Celtics for Monday's game in Philly.

Bayless was recently scheduled to have an MRI but the test results haven't been announced, and for now we're considering him questionable to return on Wednesday. Avery Bradley will continue to dominate minutes at SG in his absence.
Apr 14 - 11:23 AM

Kris Humphries (knee) will not play vs. Philadelphia on Saturday.

He's dealing with tendinitis and it seems the Celtics are content to let him rest down the stretch, rather than asking their veteran soon-to-be free agent to risk aggravating the problem in a meaningless game. Brandon Bass and Kelly Olynyk will get extra playing time with Humphries and Jared Sullinger (ankle) out of commission.
Apr 14 - 11:21 AM

Jared Sullinger (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

The Celtics made the call early which suggests that Sullinger isn't on the verge of playing, and we may have seen the last of him this season. If he doesn't play Wednesday, he'll finish with season averages of 13.3 points on 42.7 percent shooting, 8.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.7 blocks in 28 minutes per game.
Apr 14 - 11:18 AM

Rajon Rondo (shin) is questionable to return vs. the 76ers on Monday.

He sat out Friday and Saturday and the Celtics are just playing out the string with two games left, so owners should consider it a bonus if he suits up. Jerryd Bayless (knee) has already been ruled out so Avery Bradley should be busy regardless of Rondo's status.
Apr 14 - 11:16 AM

Since returning from an injury three games ago, Avery Bradley has gone 13-of-16 from beyond the arc.

Bradley has really been draining his 3-point attempts lately, and with a favorable matchup vs. the 76ers on Monday, that hot streak could continue. Despite a laundry list of injuries, Bradley has turned in a nice season, improving his averages across the board in points (14.7) rebounds (3.8) 3-points made (1.3) and shot attempts (13.5). If he can manage to stay healthy next season, he could be a nice asset to have on your fantasy roster.
Apr 13 - 9:12 AM

Phil Pressey started in place of Rajon Rondo (rest) and hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, five rebounds, 13 assists and a steal.

Any time Rondo will miss, Pressey is worth a shot in most fantasy leagues. He's not a great scorer, but did a nice job for the Celtics tonight.
