      Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Plays 14 minutes in garbage time

      Zeller saw 14 minutes in Monday's 111-95 win over the Rockets. He contributed nine points (3-6 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, and one steal. Zeller cracked double digits in the minutes column for the first time since Oct. 30, when he was still being utilized in the starting lineup. He had taken DNPs in three of the Celtics' previous four games, and Monday's relatively ample minutes load can likely be attributed to the team pulling away from the Rockets by the end of the third quarter. Don't expect Zeller to reemerge as a regular rotation option for the Celtics in the near future.

      Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Plays only three minutes

      Zeller, after being demoted to the bench for the first time this season, played only three minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers. That's two straight games of single digit minutes, two shots and zero points for Boston's Zeller. He is now clearly behind Jared Sullinger, Amir Johnson, David Lee and even Kelly Olynyk in coach Brad Stevens' big man pecking order. That said, Stevens will experiment with lineups throughout the season. For now, Zeller's fantasy value is very low.

      Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Takes over reserve role Wednesday

      Zeller will move to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pacers. Zeller and David Lee will make way for Jared Sullinger and Amir Johnson on Wednesday, even though Zeller and Lee started the first three games of the season. It appears that coach Brad Stevens wants to switch things up in preparation for the long season ahead, which hurts the value of all Boston's frontcourt players while Stevens tinkers with his lineup.

      Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Continues to start at power forward Friday

      Zeller will remain in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Raptors, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports. Despite the staunch competition in Boston's frontcourt, Zeller will continue to start over the likes of Jared Sullinger, Amir Johnson, and Kelly Olynyk despite getting pulled off the court early in the opener against Philadelphia, resulting in just 11 total minutes of action. The depth threatens his viability and those who have a vested interest in Zeller should be aware of his potential for shortened minutes, even though he continues to start.

      Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Starts in season opener

      Zeller will start in Wednesday's season opener against Philadelphia, Ben Rohrbach of Yahoo! Sports reports. Zeller has seemingly edged out Amir Johnson and Jared Sullinger for a starting spot in the frontcourt alongside David Lee, although fellow contender Kelly Olynyk is suspended Wednesday for his rough play against Kevin Love in last year's playoffs. Assuming that Zeller continues to start over Olynyk moving forward, all frontcourt players will likely struggle for fantasy relevancy as they split up the workload under coach Brad Stevens.

      Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Totals 12 points Friday

      Zeller totaled 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 FT), two assists, four rebounds, and a block in 14 minutes in Friday's, 101-95 loss to the Knicks. The Celtics' starting center tied his preseason low in minutes but posted his best scoring night of the exhibition slate. Zeller has shot at a 54 percent clip (15-for-28) this preseason, a number in line with his career best .549 figure in 2014-15. The fourth-year pro figures to tally about 30 minutes per game maximum in the regular season, and appears to be clearly ahead of Kelly Olynyk at this point in time.

      Celtics C Tyler Zeller, PF David Lee seem set for starting roles

      Brad Stevens intimated Tuesday that Celtics center Tyler Zeller and David Lee would be his starters at center and power forward, respectively, to open the season. "My thought right now is we won't play more than four on most nights," Stevens said. "Whoever those four may be, may depend on the night, may depend on how they're playing, may depend on who is healthy." Zeller and Lee have been playing together as the starters throughout the preseason, and Stevens has offered no inclination that he plans on changing things up. However, his comments that he'd likely only use four big men in a given game suggests that there are no plans to lengthen the rotation beyond 10 players, which likely leaves Zeller to assume 25-30 minutes on most occasions. That's still not an abundance of playing time, and Zeller hasn't really shown enough ability as a rebounder to represent much more than a low-end Fantasy option.

      Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scores career-high 26 points in win

      Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scored a career-high 26 points on 11 of 15 shooting from the field in Boston's 108-89 win over the 76ers Monday. Zeller also grabbed five rebounds and dished out two assists in the contest. Zeller has shot lights out over the last two games, going a combined 19 of 25 from the field and scoring 44 points. "I think it's just opportunity," Zeller said to MASSLive.com. "Especially against people like Hibbert, who want to play at the basket, you can stretch the floor. I used it some my first two years in Cleveland, and now, if the opportunity's there, being able to pick-and-pop in the middle, my teammates are realizing, and I'm showing them that I can shoot that. So they're getting the ball to me. And then when I don't have it, we're making great plays off that."
