Tyler Zeller: Waived by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller was waived by the Celtics on Sunday.

With his $8 million contract set to guarantee on Sunday, the Celtics went ahead and cut bait in order to free up some additional cap space to make a run at some bigger free agents. Zeller is coming off a 2016-17 campaign where he averaged just 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds across 10.3 minutes, but he should still receive plenty of interest on the open market as a potential depth option in the frontcourt.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Likely to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller is expected to be waived on Sunday, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.

Zeller's salary for the 2017-18 season will be guaranteed on Sunday if he's not let go, so it appears the Celtics are ready to move on from the 27-year-old big man in their quest to secure a big time free agent. In 51 games with the Celtics this past season, Zeller averaged just 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds across 10.3 minutes, but he should be able to latch on elsewhere as a boost to another team's frontcourt depth.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Out Wednesday vs. Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller is dealing with a personal issue and won't play in Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports.

Zeller is dealing with a family issue, although it doesn't sound like he'll be away from the team for long. His next opportunity to play will be Thursday against the Hawks, but considering he's seen single-digit minutes in each of the last four games, his absence shouldn't have a drastic impact on the team's regular rotation.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Sees a rare 10 minutes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller banged out six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block from a rare 10 minutes in Wednesday's 109-100 home win over Indiana.

Zeller had not seen 10 minutes of run since February 1st. Coach Stevens admitted post game he wanted to give Zeller minutes to prepare for bigger teams come playoff time. It's no secret that rebounding has been an issue for Boston, and Stevens clearly wants Zeller sharp should extra rebounding help be needed. Expect Zeller to play less Friday versus the more guard-oriented Suns. Zeller has had four DNP's in March.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Likely to play Sunday vs. Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller (illness) is still under the weather, but is expected to play Sunday against the Suns, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

The Celtics' game notes listed Zeller as doubtful for the contest, but it appears the center has made more progress than anticipated in his recovery from the stomach flu since the notes were published. Though he's normally only a fringe option in coach Brad Stevens' rotation, Zeller may be in store for more minutes than normal Sunday with Al Horford (elbow) ruled out.
