  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Held scoreless across 15 minutes

    Pritchard ended with zero points (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 15 minutes during Monday's 122-112 loss to the Pacers.

    Coming into the contest, Pritchard had averaged 10.0 points on 47.8 percent shooting over his previous six appearances. However, he fell flat during the In-Season Tournament loss, missing all five of his shots en route to his first scoreless outing since Nov. 8. Pritchard is averaging a career-high 20.5 minutes per game this season, but he's not delivering consistent production.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Hits two triples in win

    Pritchard posted six points (2-6 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and two rebounds with zero turnovers over 20 minutes in Sunday's 113-103 home win over the Hawks.

    Sunday marked Jrue Holiday's (ankle) second consecutive missed game. However, Pritchard once again was not able to seize the opportunity to earn extra minutes at point guard. Coach Joe Mazzulla decided to shift Derrick White to the point and started Dalano Banton at shooting guard. Pritchard continues to struggle with his three-point shot. He is now shooting 32.2 percent this season from behind the arc.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Goes off in loss

    Pritchard notched 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Monday's 121-118 overtime loss to Charlotte.

    Pritchard dropped a season-high 21 points Monday, taking advantage of Derrick White's (personal) absence. While this was a great performance, managers should take note that prior to Monday, Pritchard had scored in double digits only twice this season. Viewing this as an outlier, he is not worth adding outside of very deep formats.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Shooting woes continue

    Pritchard eked out zero points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt) and two assists over 19 minutes in Saturday's 124-114 win in Brooklyn.

    On a night with fellow guard Derrick White (personal) out, Pritchard had an opportunity to see big minutes. However, Pritchard's shooting woes continued despite Brooklyn's poor defense. The reserve guard is now shooting 29.6 percent from the field over Boston's first five games. On Saturday, he generated a minus-10 point differential. Expect Pritchard to eventually break out of his slump, but his minutes will stay minimal until he does so. He'll attempt to turn things around Monday night in Minnesota.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Just misses double-double

    Pritchard racked up 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and nine assists over 26 minutes during Wednesday's 155-104 win over the Pacers.

    The game was effectively over at halftime, and Boston's key bench players wound up seeing extra run as the team rested starters in the fourth quarter. Pritchard took advantage, nearly recording his second career double-double while scoring in double digits for the first time in 2023-24. The fourth-year guard won't see consistent usage in a deep Celtics backcourt, but as he showed at the end of last season, Pritchard can post strong fantasy numbers when he gets the opportunity.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Struggles from field

    Pritchard amassed zero points (0-8 FG, 0-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, six assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 126-107 victory over the Wizards.

    After playing an average of 12.0 minutes in his previous two games, Pritchard saw extended run Monday due to the lopsided score. While he did a solid job rebounding and facilitating, Pritchard going 0-for-8 from the field was disappointing considering how hot he was in the preseason.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Heads to second unit

    Pritchard will come off the bench for Tuesday's preseason game against New York, John Karalis of reports.

    Pritchard returns to his designated role off the bench. Jrue Holiday and Derrick White start in the backcourt alongside Boston's full cast of key contributors.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Another strong performance

    Pritchard notched 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt), a rebound, three assists and a steal across 24 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 112-101 preseason win over the 76ers.

    Pritchard has been one of the best players in the preseason and is making a solid case to earn a more prominent role off the bench by the time the regular season begins. Through three preseason contests, the guard, who recently signed a four-year extension with Boston worth $30 million, has averaged 21.3 points per game.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Returns to bench

    Pritchard isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's preseason game versus the 76ers, Tim Bontemps of reports.

    With Derrick White and Jrue Holiday back in action, Pritchard will return to a bench role. Pritchard is expected to serve as Boston's backup point guard this season.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Strong showing versus Knicks

    Pritchard recorded 21 points (7-15 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals across 29 minutes in Monday's 114-107 preseason loss to the Knicks.

    Pritchard recently signed a four-year, $30 million extension before the preseason opener, and he has backed that up with 20 or more points in each of his first two exhibition contests. While he's not expected to become a regular starter overnight, Pritchard should see a bigger role off the bench compared to previous seasons, presumably as Jrue Holiday's or Derrick White's backup. Of note, Pritchard averaged a career-low 13.4 minutes per game in 2022-23. Expect that number to increase this season.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Moves into starting lineup

    Pritchard will start Monday's game against the Knicks, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Fresh off a 26-point performance in the preseason opener Sunday, Pritchard will now get a shot in the starting lineup, as Boston is resting its usual starters for the second night of a back-to-back set. Pritchard will be joined by Sam Hauser, Oshae Brissett, Dalano Banton and Luke Kornet.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Shines after signing extension

    Pritchard registered 26 points (9-14 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes during Sunday's 114-106 preseason win over Philadelphia.

    Pritchard signed a four-year, $30 million extension before the preseason opener and scored a team-high 26 points on elite shooting efficiency. It was certainly an eventful day for the offensive-minded point guard, who's slated for a bigger role this year after Boston made numerous offseason changes. After seeing 19.2 minutes per game as a rookie, Pritchard's playing time has dropped in back-to-back campaigns. However, Marcus Smart and Malcolm Brogdon are no longer in the picture, and Boston added only one guard -- Jrue Holiday -- in return, leaving Pritchard as the top guard behind Holiday, Jaylen Brown and Derrick White. It's still unclear how the starting lineup will shake out, but Pritchard has clearly moved up a notch on the depth chart and may get to play closer to 20 minutes per game again, especially if he continues to shoot like he did Sunday.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Earns multi-year extension

    Pritchard signed a four-year, $30 million extension with Boston on Sunday, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    Pritchard has been a rotational contributor for Boston across three seasons in the league, bottoming out at 13.4 minutes per game last year, but he's due for an expanded role in 2023-24. The 25-year-old has rained in 40.0 percent of 3.5three-point attempts in his career, and he profiles as the third guard behind Jrue Holiday and Derrick White. Boston's confidence signing him to a long-term deal bodes well for his expected usage moving forward.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: With second unit for Game 1

    Pritchard will come off the bench for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Saturday versus Atlanta, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Pritchard drew the starting nod in the Celtics' regular-season finale and logged a 30-point triple-double in 46 minutes. However, he is expected to retreat to his usual role as a depth piece in the backcourt and will likely struggle to crack Boston's playoff rotation.

  • Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Historic triple-double as starter

    Pritchard closed Sunday's 120-114 victory over Atlanta with 30 points (10-21 FG, 9-16 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 14 rebounds and 11 assists across 46 minutes.

    Pritchard got a starting nod Sunday due to Boston resting numerous regular starters in the regular-season finale, finishing the win with a 30-point triple-double while leading all players in scoring, rebounds, assists and threes made. Pritchard posted a career-high point total in his first-ever triple-double, becoming the third player in franchise history to score 30 points with at least 13 rebounds and 11 assists, joining John Havlicek and Larry Bird. His role should decrease in the postseason since several key contributors should be back in action.
