Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Starts, scores 13 points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (hip) started at shooting guard posted 13 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one steal and one block across 28 minutes in a 107-97 loss to the Raptors on Friday.

After Brown's hip injury kept him sidelined for the final three games before the All-Star break, the rookie returned to action Friday and took back a spot in the starting five with Avery Bradley (Achilles) still sidelined. He ended up turning in a quality shooting effort and seems to be gaining trust from coach Brad Stevens as the season goes on, but Brown will likely move back to the bench perhaps as soon as Sunday against the Pistons. Bradley indicated that he feels 100 percent healthy and has received clearance to play, and it appears he was only held out Friday for precautionary purposes.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Drops 19 points off bench Friday vs. Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart supplied 19 points (6-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, and four assists across 32 minutes during Friday's 107-97 loss to the Raptors.

Coach Brad Stevens opted to start Jaylen Brown over Marcus smart at the shooting guard slot, but Smart played four more minutes than Brown and dropped 19 points despite only hitting one of his seven three-point attempts. While he has shown flashes of potential when given the opportunities, Smart's minutes and fantasy value will likely take a significant hit once Avery Bradley (Achilles) returns from his injury, which is currently scheduled for Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Will come off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Raptors, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

Smart had started the previous five games at shooting guard due to injuries on the wing, but rookie Jaylen Brown's return from injury will put Smart back into a reserve role Friday. He still figures to see heavy minutes with Avery Bradley still out, but they could be slightly reduced from the 35.3 he was averaging in his last five starts.

Celtics' Gerald Green: Out Friday, Sunday with heel injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (heel) isn't traveling with the Celtics and won't play Friday against the Raptors or Sunday against the Pistons, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

Green injured his right heel in a Feb. 15 game against the 76ers, and though he was able to play through the injury a day later in the team's loss to the Bulls, it appears his condition worsened over the All-Star break. After failing to practice Thursday, the Celtics decided it was best to let Green recover in Boston rather than join the team on their two-game road swing. Green was only averaging 14.6 minutes per game over his previous five appearances, so none of the Celtics' wings figure to gain substantial fantasy value in the short term while he's out.

Celtics' Avery Bradley: Will remain out Friday vs. Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradley (Achilles) will sit out Friday against the Raptors, CSN Northeast's A. Sherrod Blakely reports.

Bradley did travel with the Celtics for their two-game road trip to kick off their post-All-Star break schedule, and even though the shooting guard saw involvement in morning shootaround and said he feels 100 percent healthy, coach Brad Stevens and the team's staff decided it was for the best for Bradley to miss his 17th consecutive game. Despite Bradley's extended absence, the Celtics have surged into second in the Eastern Conference standings, so the team has the luxury of holding him out for precautionary purposes. Marcus Smart is expected to see the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard in Bradley's stead, though it's uncertain if Smart or Jaylen Brown (hip) will start at the position. Bradley's next chance to return to the court will come Sunday against the Pistons.
