Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Misses Tuesday's practice with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown did not participate in Tuesday's practice due to an illness, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

No official word regarding his status for Wednesday's Game 5 has been announced, but Brown should likely be considered questionable for the contest due to the illness that caused him to miss Tuesday's practice. That being said, he's played a combined two minutes over Games 3 and 4, so his availability for Wednesday likely won't have too much impact on the fantasy forecast.

Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Scores 10 in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk posted 10 points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, one steal and one block across 16 efficient minutes in Sunday's 104-95 Game 4 win in Chicago.

Coach Brad Stevens leaned on Olynyk and Marcus Smart as his two key bench players to even the series with Chicago. Olynyk and Al Horton are the only legitimate bigs seeing time in Stevens' playoff rotations, as both Amir Johnson and Tyler Zeller received Game 4 DNP's. Expect the Celtics to stay small during Wednesday's critical Game 5 back in Boston, with Olynyk's minutes staying in the 14-17 minute range, a slight decrease from his 21 minute regular season average.

Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Again plays only one minute in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown played only one minute during Boston's Game 4 win and was statistically shut out.

That's back-to-back one minute playoff games for the rookie Brown, who averaged 17 minutes per game during the regular season. Coach Brad Stevens clearly doesn't trust Brown versus crafty veterans Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade. Instead, Stevens has turned to veteran wing Gerald Green to boost the starting line-up's scoring options. Avoid Brown in all DFS formats Wednesday as the C's return home to face the Bulls for a critical Game 5.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Tough in the clutch during Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart fought for five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block from 33 clutch minutes in Sunday's 104-195 Game 4 win in Chicago.

Smart thrusted his usual grit and risky ball hawking defensive skills right at the Bulls, at one point angering Bulls star Jimmy Butler. Smart's contributions tend to fall outside of the box score; he's generally more valuable to the Celtics than he is to your fantasy lineup. Look for more big minutes off the bench for Smart as the Celtics return home Wednesday for a critical Game 5.

Celtics' Gerald Green: Drains four threes in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-9 3Pt) while adding seven rebounds in 23 minutes during Sunday's 104-95 Game 4 win over the Bulls.

Making his second straight start, Green supplied the Celtics with some key outside shooting as they took both games in Chicago to even the series at 2-2. The 31-year-old is quickly becoming one of the surprising stories of the postseason, and with Boston's rotations clicking at the moment expect Green to remain in the starting five for Game 5 on Wednesday.
