Top Aaron Nesmith News

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Provides spark off bench

    Nesmith ended with 10 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, one assist, one block and two steals over nine minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the 76ers.

    Nesmith scored 10 points off the bench and notched his fourth double-digit scoring performance of the season. However, he played just nine minutes -- which will likely be reduced even more when Marcus Smart (thigh/COVID-19 protocols) returns to the lineup -- and is averaging just 3.2 points on 36.7 percent shooting during the 2021-22 campaign. He's unlikely to crack fantasy relevancy as long as the Celtics remain relatively healthy.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Almost logs double-double

    Nesmith logged 21 points (9-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal across 31 minutes during a 117-89 win Sunday against the Herd.

    Nesmith was excellent during his first G League game this year. The Maine Celtics will view him as one of their primary scoring options and an adequate rebounder until he is promoted to Boston again.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Assigned to G League

    The Celtics assigned Nesmith to the Maine Celtics of the G League on Sunday.

    Nesmith has played only six minutes in two games since clearing the COVID-19 protocols, so he'll head to the G League to receive more consistent playing time. The 2020 first-round pick has 28 NBA appearances this season and has averaged 3.1 points and 1.7 rebounds in 10.7 minutes.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Will be available Wednesday

    Nesmith (COVID-19 protocols) is listed as available for Wednesday's contest against the Spurs, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Nesmith will be available for the first time since entering COVID-19 protocols Dec. 24. It's unclear what his role will be Wednesday, as the Celtics are closer to full strength than they were the last time he was in the rotation.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Questionable Wednesday

    Nesmith (COVID-19) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Nesmith has a good chance at finally returning to the rotation since entering the league's health and safety protocols Dec. 24. Although the forward cleared protocols for the Celtics' recent game against the Magic on Sunday, Nesmith ultimately didn't play.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Won't play Sunday

    Nesmith is listed as out on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Magic, as he's still in the league's health and safety protocols.

    Nesmith reportedly cleared protocols Saturday and initially didn't have an injury designation coming into Sunday's game but apparently that report was inaccurate. The 27-year-old will miss a fifth straight game and will try to return Wednesday when the Spurs come into town.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Exits protocols

    Nesmith (COVID-19 protocols) exited protocols and is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Magic, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

    Nesmith last played Dec. 22. He's seen spot run for most of the season. In December, he averaged 4.4 points and 2.0 rebounds in 13.7 minutes.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Lands in protocols

    Nesmith was placed in health and safety protocols Friday, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Nesmith joins an extensive injury list. The Celtics will be extremely shorthanded for the Christmas Day matchup against the Bucks.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Returns to bench Monday

    Nesmith will come off the bench Monday against the 76ers.

    Nesmith received a spot start Saturday and had zero points (0-5 3Pt), seven rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes, but he'll return to the bench Monday with the likes of Dennis Schroder (illness) available. Nesmith should still see some action as a reserve given the Celtics are still shorthanded.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Starting vs. Knicks

    Nesmith will start Saturday's matchup against the Knicks, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    With the Celtics down Dennis Schroder (illness), Romeo Langford (neck) and others, Nesmith will be forced into the starting five for just the second time in his career. In the three games this season that he's seen 20-plus minutes, Nesmith has averaged 7.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 assists.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Sees 14 minutes in loss

    Nesmith scored nine points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt) but failed to register any other stats beyond three fouls over 14 minutes of run in Tuesday's 117-102 road loss to the Lakers.

    Nesmith's zero rebounds were one of many contributing factors that led to Boston being outrebounded 51 to 34 by the Lakers. The Lakers overwhelmed Boston for most of the night. Nesmith has now bounced back from two DNP-Coaches Decisions and appeared in three straight games, during which he has averaged 6.7 points and 1.3 three-pointers per game.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Scores 13 in win

    Nesmith generated 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist over 18 minutes in Thursday's 95-78 win in Miami.

    Bench players Nesmith, Romeo Langford and Dennis Schroder were all a big part of a dominant second quarter where Boston outscored the Heat 33-9. It was an ugly offensive night for Boston, but the defense was stellar. The bench effort was needed, as Jaylen Brown left in the second half due to a hamstring issue and Jayson Tatum scored only 10 points. Boston next travels to Dallas for a Saturday night matchup with the Mavs. Should Brown's hamstring issue linger, playing time will open up for both Nesmith and Langford.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Off injury report

    Nesmith is off the injury report for Saturday's matchup against the Wizards.

    Nesmith has been dealing with a non-COVID illness, but he'll be able to take the court Saturday. He's been a DNP-CD over the past two games, though he could see an increased workload with Marcus Smart (illness) sidelined.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Dealing with non-COVID illness

    Nesmith is dealing with a non-COVID illness, but he will still travel with the team to Washington and hopes to play in Saturday's contest against the Wizards, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Nesmith didn't practice Friday due to the illness, but he hopes to be ready for Saturday's contest against the Wizards. The 22-year-old wing hasn't seen any playing time the last two games, so if he's unable to suit up, it shouldn't affect coach Ime Udoka's rotations.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Scoreless in win

    Nesmith posted zero points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 12 minutes in Sunday's 107-97 win at Houston.

    The good news is that through three games, Nesmith is clearly part of new coach Ime Udoka's current nine-man rotation. The bad news is that through three contests, Nesmith has yet to score despite playing nine minutes per game. The second-year wing will have a chance to break his 0-for-10 shooting slump Monday night in Charlotte.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Strong showing in preseason loss

    Nesmith finished Wednesday's preseason loss to the Magic with 23 points (8-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes.

    The 14th overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft was able to show his offensive capabilities with many of the Celtics' starters resting. Nesmith scored efficiently while also showing his playmaking skills, which he hadn't been able to do last season as he never did better than two assists. He is unlikely to see many meaningful minutes in the regular season but will have another chance to earn a rotational role when the Celtics play the Heat in their preseason finale Friday.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Returns to bench

    Nesmith will come off the bench Saturday against the Timberwolves, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Coach Brad Stevens will opt to start Evan Fournier and Semi Ojeleye, sending Nesmith to the bench. Across his past 11 appearances, he's averaged 8.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in 19.0 minutes.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Enters starting five

    Nesmith will start Wednesday's game at Cleveland, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

    The 21-year-old will make the first start of his NBA career with Kemba Walker (rest), Marcus Smart (calf) and Jaylen Brown (wrist) out for the Celtics. Nesmith has averaged 4.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in 14.1 minutes this season, but he should have an increased role Wednesday.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Scores 16 in 19 minutes

    Nesmith played 19 minutes off the bench and recorded 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal Sunday in the 130-124 loss to the Heat.

    Nesmith has now scored 15 or more points in four of his last six outings while adding 5.3 boards per contest over that span. With Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart all missing time recently, the Vandy product has made the most of his time on the floor.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Scores 16 off bench

    Nesmith had 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-4 3Pt) and four rebounds in Sunday's loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Nesmith was coming off of a 16-point effort against the Spurs on Friday, and he's now scored in double figures in the last three games. The rookie was a hyperefficeint three-point shooter at Vanderbilt and he's up to 38.2 percent from three this season after Sunday's perfect night.
