Top Dalano Banton News

  • Trail Blazers' Dalano Banton: Shows up with 16 points in loss

    Banton totaled 16 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-10 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal over 26 minutes during Tuesday's 121-109 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Blanton had his best scoring total of the season in the loss and has logged more than 20 minutes in back-to-back games. The Nebraska product failed to catch on in Toronto and Boston, but he finds himself in the best possible position with a team focused on a youth-based rebuild. Blanton isn't relevant as a fantasy target yet, but he will see more minutes if Portland's injury-riddled roster continues to be an issue.

  • Trail Blazers' Dalano Banton: Available Saturday

    Banton (recently traded) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

    After being acquired from the Celtics on Thursday, Banton looks like he'll be available to make his Trail Blazers debut two days later. Banton projects to be outside of the Portland rotation when the Trail Blazers have close to their full complement of guards available, but he could be needed to fill some minutes out of the backcourt Saturday due to Shaedon Sharpe (abdomen) and Anfernee Simons (ankle) being ruled out and Malcolm Brogdon (illness) and Scoot Henderson (foot) listed as questionable.

  • Trail Blazers' Dalano Banton: Traded to Portland

    Banton was traded from the Celtics to the Trail Blazers on Thursday in exchange for a protected second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Banton was moved back and forth between the G League and parent club in recent weeks and was on the fringes of Boston's rotation. He averaged 2.3 points and 1.5 rebounds in 7.1 minutes per game over 24 appearances in the NBA to begin the year and will attempt to carve out a role in Portland.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Recalled to Boston

    Boston recalled Banton from the G League's Maine Celtics on Saturday.

    Banton has appeared in three of the Celtics' last five contests. He continues to profile as end-of-bench depth.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Back with Boston

    The Celtics recalled Banton from the G League's Maine Celtics on Saturday.

    Banton didn't rejoin the parent club in time for Saturday's 145-113 win over the Rockets, but he saw steady playing time in Maine's 112-92 win over Indiana Mad Ants the same day. In 35 minutes with Maine, Banton produced 28 points (10-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six assists, five rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Rare appearance Friday

    Banton notched two points (1-1 FG) across two minutes during Friday's 120-118 win over the Raptors.

    Banton cracked the rotation for just the third time in the past 10 games, scoring two points for the third straight contest. With three key pieces on the sideline, the Celtics were forced to go deep into their rotation, hence the playing time for Banton. Even in the deepest of leagues, Banton has no fantasy value.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Cleared to play

    Banton (illness) is available for Sunday's game against the Magic, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Banton will be available after missing Friday's win over Orlando. However, he's not a regular part of the rotation, so he may not see any playing time during Sunday's rematch.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Iffy for Sunday

    Banton (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Magic.

    Banton is in danger of missing his second straight contest Sunday due to a non-COVID illness. However, the 24-year-old guard hasn't been a consistent part of Boston's rotation, even when available.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Ruled out for Friday

    Banton has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic due to a non-COVID illness.

    Banton fell out of the Celtics' rotation over the past few matchups, and he'll be unable to suit up Friday due to his illness. His next chance to return will be in a rematch against Orlando on Sunday, but his absence shouldn't significantly impact Boston's game plan.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Moves back to bench

    Banton isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Bulls.

    After recovering from his ankle injury, Jrue Holiday will replace Banton in the starting five Tuesday. Banton is averaging 2.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 6.2 minutes across his previous six appearances coming off the bench this season.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Makes first start of season

    Banton racked up eight points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes during Sunday's 113-103 win over the Hawks.

    This was the first start of the season for Banton and just the third of his career. Jrue Holiday (ankle) missed his second straight game, so Banton got a rare opportunity to play extended minutes, with Al Horford moving into Kristaps Porzingis' (calf) spot in the lineup. Holiday is day-to-day, and Porzingis is expected to miss at least a week, so it will be interesting to see if Banton can carve out more rotation minutes.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Will start Sunday

    Banton will start Sunday's game against the Hawks, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Al Horford will take Kristaps Porzingis' (calf) spot in the starting lineup, while Banton replaces Jrue Holiday (ankle). Banton made just three starts over the previous two campaigns with Toronto, so this is an unfamiliar role for the 2021 second-round pick. Banton has played double-digit minutes just once this season, averaging 6.2 minutes per game across six appearances.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Debuts in blowout win

    Banton accumulated two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes during Monday's 126-107 win over the Wizards.

    Banton entered the contest during second-half garbage time well after Boston built a big lead in the first quarter. Monday marked the reserve's first minutes as a Celtic. It didn't go well. In a game Boston won by 19, Banton produced a point differential of minus-17 over just 10 minutes. In addition to Boston's stacked starting lineup, Banton is behind reserves Payton Pritchard and Sam Hauser. The former Raptor will probably earn limited and sporadic minutes throughout the season.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Back to bench

    Banton won't start Wednesday's preseason game against the 76ers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    With all of Boston's regulars resting Monday, Banton drew a start and posted 20 points (8-19 FG) in 30 minutes. Banton moves back to a reserve role with Derrick White and Jrue Holiday suiting up, but Jayson Tatum (rest) and Jaylen Brown (rest) will still be sidelined, so Banton should still see a sizable role off the bench Wednesday.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Full performance in loss

    Banton posted 20 points (8-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt 3-3 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Monday's 114-107 preseason loss to the Knicks.

    With Boston's regular starters resting, Banton led the Celtics in playing time and shot attempts. The 23-year-old has good size to make an impact on the wings for Boston, but he shot just 29.4 percent from three-point range last season. He'll likely need to provide better shooting to see the court for meaningful stretches during the regular season.

  • Celtics' Dalano Banton: Gets starting nod Monday

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

    With Boston's usual regulars sidelined for the second night of a back-to-back set, Banton gets a chance with the starting unit. He'll be joined by Payton Pritchard, Sam Hauser, Oshae Brissett and Luke Kornet.
