Top Aaron Nesmith News

  • Pacers' Aaron Nesmith: Heading to Indiana

    Nesmith was traded to Indiana from Boston alongside Daniel Theis, two other players and a first-round pick for Malcolm Brogdon on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After two seasons of limited playing time in Boston, the 2020 first-round pick now finds himself with Indiana. While Nesmith is bound to see the court more with the rebuilding Pacers than he did with the contending Celtics, the 22-year-old still has plenty of competition for minutes. Nesmith is set to compete amongst the likes of Chris Duarte, Buddy Hield, Duane Washington and Bennedict Mathurin for playing time coming into next year.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Scores 11 points in limited action

    Nesmith accumulated 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two assists and one steal in eight minutes during Sunday's 144-102 victory over Washington.

    Nesmith needed just eight minutes to register his eighth double-digit scoring performance of the season. The second-year wing's playing time was likely a result of Boston's commanding lead, as he garnered back-to-back healthy DNPs during the Celtics' previous two contests.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Returning to bench role

    Nesmith will come off the bench for Wednesday's matchup with the Heat, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    With Jayson Tatum rejoining the lineup after a one-game absence, Nesmith will shift back to a reserve role. The 22-year-old is averaging 3.6 points and 1.8 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game this season.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Fills in with 13 points

    Nesmith posted 13 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and three steals over 39 minutes during Monday's 115-112 overtime loss to the Raptors.

    Nesmith entered the starting five with Jayson Tatum (knee) sidelined, and he didn't come close to absorbing Tatum's usual production. Although the Celtics have depth in the backcourt, the squad is particularly vulnerable when elite players like Tatum and Jaylen Brown (knee) are out of the lineup.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Joins starting lineup

    Nesmith will start Monday's game against the Raptors, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 22-year-old will make his third start of the season with Jayson Tatum (knee) and Jaylen Brown (knee) both out on the second night of a back-to-back set. Nesmith has averaged 7.5 points and 3.3 rebounds over the seven games in which he's played at least 20 minutes this season, so he's not a risky streaming option even with Boston short-handed.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Lackluster during return

    Nesmith logged five points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds across 14 minutes during Tuesday's 136-127 loss to the College Park Skyhawks.

    Nesmith made his G League return Tuesday. However, the forward failed to make all but one shot and failed to supply tallies in other statistical categories (apart from rebounds).

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Assigned to G League

    Nesmith was assigned to the G League's Maine Celtics on Tuesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Nesmith was recently cleared for action following a seven-game absence due to an ankle injury. However, he doesn't have a consistent role with the NBA club, so he'll presumably get extended run during his time in the G League.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Will play

    Nesmith (ankle) will be available for Monday's game against Oklahoma City, John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal reports.

    This will put an end to a seven-game streak of absences for Nesmith, who hasn't played since March 3. His role has been all over the place this season, and given the recent absence it's no guarantee that he'll find more than a few garbage-time minutes.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Questionable Monday

    Nesmith (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Thunder, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Nesmith has missed the last seven games due to a sprained right ankle and it remains unclear if he'll be ready to return to the court Monday. If he's ultimately ruled out, his next opportunity to return will be Wednesday against the Jazz.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Won't play Sunday

    Nesmith (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Nuggets.

    While coach Ime Udoka said Nesmith is getting close to a return, the young wing will miss a seventh straight game as he continues to contend with a sprained right ankle. There's a decent chance he'll remain out Monday at Oklahoma City to finish out the back-to-back set.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Upgraded to questionable

    Nesmith (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Nesmith has been out for about two weeks due to a sprained ankle, but it appears he might be a bit ahead of schedule in his recovery. If he returns Sunday, he'll presumably be on a minutes limit.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Return date still far away

    Celtics head coach Ime Udoka said Wednesday that Nesmith (ankle) will remain out for "a while," Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    According to Udoka, Nesmith is still experiencing significant swelling of his sprained right ankle and will need the inflammation to subside before he's able to resume on-court activity. Once that happens, a clearer timeline for the second-year wing's return date could come into focus. Nesmith has been a fringy member of Udoka's rotation throughout the season, averaging only 10.5 minutes over 45 appearances.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Extended absence likely

    Celtics head coach Ime Udoka said Sunday that Nesmith (ankle) had significant swelling and "will be out for a longer period of time" than Jaylen Brown (ankle), Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Nesmith sprained his ankle during Thursday's contest against the Grizzlies, and based on Udoka's comments, he'll likely be facing a lengthy absence. While Brown will be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest versus Brooklyn, Nesmith may be sidelined for the entirety of Boston's upcoming three-game week.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Out Sunday

    Nesmith (ankle) is out for Sunday's matchup against the Nets.

    Nesmith sprained his ankle during Thursday's game against the Grizzlies. On a positive note, the Celtics could be getting Jaylen Brown (ankle) back, as he's listed as questionable.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Exits early Thursday

    Nesmith exited Thursday's contest early with an ankle sprain and won't return for the remainder of the game, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Nesmith earned a spot start with Jaylen Brown (ankle) ruled out for Thursday's contest with the Grizzlies. The forward left the game with one assist and one steal in five minutes of action. Expect Grant Williams and Derrick White to see extended minutes with Nesmith done for the game.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Enters starting five

    Nesmith will start Thursday's game against Memphis, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    The 22-year-old hasn't scored in his past two appearances but will make a spot start Thursday with Jaylen Brown (ankle) unavailable. Nesmith combined for zero points (0-10 FG, 0-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 43 minutes across his two previous starts this season.

  • Celtics' Aaron Nesmith: Receives DNP in win

    Nesmith did not see any playing time in Saturday's 113-104 win at Detroit.

    That marks the fourth DNP-Coach's Decision for Nesmith over Boston's last 10 games. Coach Ime Udoka has shortened his rotation to essentially eight players. Derreck White, Grant Williams and Payton Pritchard are the only reserves seeing significant playing time. The hope had been that when Boston traded Romeo Langford to San Antonio, it would free up reserve minutes on the wing for Nesmith. But that has not proved to be the case. Boston has won 11 of its last 12 games, so don't look for Udoka to change his approach any time soon.
