Jonas Jerebko continues to earn minutes with his high energy defense and ability to stretch the floor. He played 14 minutes in Boston's blowout win in Houston.
The Swedish Bird has averaged 13 minutes over the last five games. That said, Jerebko is much more valuable to Brad Stevens and his deep rotations than he is within any fantasy lineups. Enjoy Jerebko's energetic play, but avoid him in all but the deepest leagues.
Jonas Jerebko collected four points and four rebounds in the Boston Celtics ' 100-98 loss at Indiana.
Jerebko's role through the Celtics' first four games of the year has been limited to 13 minutes per game, which is a result of him coming behind Amir Johnson and David Lee at power forward. He's averaging 4.3 points and 2.8 rebounds per game in the regular season, which are both less than his career averages. Regardless of his role, the fifth year power forward has never been much of a scoring threat throughout his career.
Jonas Jerebko was the first off the bench for the Boston Celtics during their Monday preseason win versus Brooklyn.
Jerebko got a boost in minutes due to both David Lee and Jae Crowder resting to nurse minor injuries. Still, he was productive, collecting 11 points, seven rebounds, an assist and a steal in 21 minutes of aggressive play. Jerebko has proven he can offer coach Brad Stevens a productive spark off the bench when called on. But Jerebko's minutes will be erratic barring longer term injuries at the small and power forward positions.
Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens intimated Tuesday that to open the season, the Celtics have settled on playing only four big men,CSN New England's A. Sherrod Blakely reports. "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."
While Stevens is certainly keeping the door open for whom those four players might be, the early preseason rotations seem to indicate that Tyler Zeller and David Lee are the current starters with Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk first off the bench. That leaves Jonas Jerebko and newly slimmed Jared Sullinger on the outside looking in for playing time. Jerebko is also behind Evan Turner and Jae Crowder at the small forward spot. The Swedish Larry Bird is looking more like the Swedish Ryan Kelly.
Jonas Jerebko has rejoined the team following an illness that held him out of Sunday's practice, Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News reports.
It's unclear exactly what illness Jerebko was dealing with, but it appears the issue is now behind him. He should be good to go moving forward barring something unforeseen.
