New York0-10-1
Celtics' Isaiah Thomas: Leads Boston in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas led the Celtics with 25 points (7-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 9-9 FT) and added six rebounds, nine assists, and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 122-117 win over the Nets.

Thomas is already a consensus top 40 fantasy player, and in that sense, this performance is hardly out of the ordinary. The perfect nine for nine free throw shooting is worth extra note. Thomas has been one of the league leaders in free throw percentage impact, but he has remained a tier below James Harden and Kevin Durant. If Thomas could increase his number of attempts while maintaining his efficiency, he could challenge their years-long duopoly. During the final three preseason games, Thomas attempted 10 free throws per 36 minutes.

Celtics' Jae Crowder: Shines in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowder scored 21 points (9-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt) and added five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 122-117 win over the Nets.

A third or fourth option on the Celtics, Crowder can be overlooked at times. But Crowder is a strong across the board fantasy producer. He's unlikely to reach 20 points and three three pointers every night, but the rest of his Wednesday box score is entirely repeatable. At only 26 years old, Crowder should still be improving.

Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Sidelined for a few more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Olynyk (shoulder) remains "a couple weeks away" from returning to the court, per coach Brad Stevens.

While Olynyk has already returned to 5-on-5 work, the Celtics are planning to bring the big man along slowly to minimize the risk of re-injury. In his absence, Amir Johnson figures to start alongside Al Horford up front, while Tyler Zeller and Jonas Jerebko will be slated for slightly increased roles off the bench.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Ruled out of opener, hopes to return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's season opener against the Nets.

Smart's sprained left ankle has improved of late, but he remains without a firm return timetable. The third-year guard estimated that he'll be back in "about a week," which would likely mean he'll miss at least the first three games of the season. Following the opener Wednesday, Boston plays at Chicago on Thursday and at Charlotte on Saturday before returning home to host the Bulls next Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Remains without timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (ankle) is improving but remains without a return timetable, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports.

Smart sprained his left ankle in last Wednesday's preseason finale and has remained limited in the day since, but coach Brad Stevens stopped short of ruling the guard out of the team's season opener Wednesday against the Nets. At this point, it appears rather unlikely that Smart will be available Wednesday, but more should be known following Tuesday's session. If Smart is ultimately held out, Terry Rozier would be in line for increased minutes.
