    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Scores eight points in season-ending loss

    Zeller scored eight points (4-6 FG) and added five rebounds across 12 minutes in Thursday's 104-92 Game 6 loss to the Hawks. With the Celtics trailing by 21 points entering the fourth quarter, Zeller was given a chance to try to will the team back to victory, but his efforts ultimately proved futile in the season-ending loss. Though he entered the season in a starting role, Zeller ended up dropping steadily down the depth chart throughout the season and made appearances in just three of the six games in the first-round playoff series. Zeller will become a restricted free agent in the offseason, and given his limited role this past season along with the existing crowd in the Celtics' frontcourt, it would be surprising if he donned the green and white in 2016-17.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Matches career-highs with 26 points, four blocks off bench Friday

    Zeller recorded 26 points (9-15 FG, 8-9 FT), four blocks, three rebounds, and two assists across 25 minutes during the Celtics' 124-109 win against the Bucks on Friday. Zeller had scored 22 points in 61 minutes over his last five appearances. However, he wound up breaking Isaiah Thomas' streak of 17 games in a row as the team's leading scorer. Though Zeller was spectacular on Friday, Saturday's matchup with the Hawks has much greater stakes since home-court advantage in the first round is up in the air. As a result, it might not be reasonable to expect a repeat performance from Zeller.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Plays seven minutes Wednesday

    Zeller scored three points (1-1 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding three rebounds and one assist in seven minutes during the Celtics' 104-97 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday. Zeller averaged 16 minutes per game in March, the most in any individual month during 2015-16. Still, he has been a healthy scratch from the rotation in four of the last eight matchups. The Celtics go small fairly often, plus the team possesses plenty of depth in terms of big men. Given the lack of certainty regarding his role, Zeller is not worth targeting in most leagues.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Receives CD-DNP Monday

    Zeller spent Monday's entire game on the bench, snapping his 11 game streak of 10 or more minutes per game. Coach Brad Stevens stuck with small ball lineups versus Orlando's different three guard lineups. With Magic center Nikola Vucevic out due to a groin injury, Orlando gave big minutes to guards Brandon Jennings, Evan Fournier, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton. It didn't work, as Boston led for most of the game, eliminating the need to insert Zeller. Celtic Amir Johnson, who reportedly is feeling better after some foot issues, played a season high 34 minutes. Look for Zeller to return to the court Wednesday versus the Raptors.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Scores 16 points in blowout loss

    Zeller put up 16 points (5-9 FG, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, and two blocks over 18 minutes in Wednesday's 130-109 loss to the Thunder. Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) returned to the rotation following an extended absence, but with the Thunder taking a commanding lead by the third quarter, Zeller still saw solid minutes. That's unlikely to continue now that the Celtics frontcourt is nearly back to full strength, so don't expect too many more double-digit scoring performances from Zeller with less than a month to go in the season.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Gets 26 minutes Wednesday

    Zeller scored nine points (3-4 FG, 3-3 FT) to go with seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in 26 minutes during the Celtics' 116-96 win versus the Grizzlies on Wednesday. Zeller's minutes continue to increase, and he is averaging 9.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, 0.6 assists, and 0.2 steals in 21 minutes per matchup over the last five games. February's 16 minutes per contest were the most he had seen in any individual month this season, but if the first four games of March are any indication, he is set to earn a more substantial role this month.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Settling into reserve role

    Zeller has settled into a solid reserve role for Boston, averaging 15 minutes per game over Boston's last 10 contests. After a long stretch of DNP's, Zeller has returned to provide low-post defense and solid rebounding off the bench. The fourth year veteran is averaging 8.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.6 blocks over the past 10 games.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Continues Productive Run

    Zeller scored a season-high 17 points in Sunday's win versus the Kings. Brad Stevens has woken the bearded sleeping giant. After three months of fantasy irrelevance, Zeller has now posted four straight productive games in February. Over that span, he's averaged 13.8 points, 6.5 boards and 1.3 blocks from 21 minutes per game, while shooting 69% from the field. While it's hard to expect this trend to continue for the rest of the season, Zeller now makes for a very intriguing daily fantasy play.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Has productive night down low in Friday win

    Zeller had 16 points (8-10 FG), four rebounds and an assist in 20 minutes on Friday in a win against the Cavaliers. Zeller has been getting more run lately and that could continue going forward as Kelly Olynyk gets fewer minutes. This is now three productive outings in a row for Zeller and everything is trending in the right direction for him. It may be a little premature to add him to your season-long roster right now, but keep an eye on him in the next couple of games to get a true indicator of where his role lies with the Celtics. Zeller has a great matchup against Denver in the next game on Sunday, but again, his minutes are not set in stone.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Sets multiple season highs in Tuesday's win

    Zeller had his best game of the season in Tuesday's 97-879 win over the Knicks, scoring a season-high 16 points (8-13 FG) with 10 rebounds during 27 minutes. It was Zeller's first double-double since January 2015 as coach Brad Stevens played his bench extensively Tuesday. This resulted in a season-high 27 minutes in which Zeller killed the Knicks on the offensive glass. Right now it's safe to flag Zeller in 10- or 12-team leagues, but go ahead and take a chance on him in deeper formats.
