Wanamaker had eight points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and four assists in Friday's 115-105 win over the Clippers.
Wanamaker's points, rebounds and assists tally Friday marked his highest of the new calendar year. He is averaging 4.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists through five games in 2021. Wanamaker serves to be a backup for Stephen Curry, meaning he will likely not provide much value unless the two-time MVP is hurt.
Wanamaker recorded two points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 123-98 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Wanamaker failed to convert a field goal for the second time this season during the blowout loss. So far, through five games, he's averaging 5.4 points, 2.6 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 17.6 minutes.
Wanamaker agreed to a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the Warriors on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wanamaker played a backup point guard role with the Celtics last season, seeing 19.3 minutes per game and averaging 6.9 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds. Wanamaker will continue occupying a reserve role with the Warriors, though he'll likely have to battle with Jordan Poole and Damion Lee for minutes in the backcourt.
Wanamaker will not receive a qualifying offer from the Celtics, making him an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wanamaker played a key role off of the Celtics' bench last season, appearing in 71 games and averaging 19.3 minutes per game -- both career highs by a fair margin. The 31-year-old should draw some interest on the free-agent market, but he's unlikely to ever be a fantasy-relevant player.
Wanamaker posted 11 points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, five steals and zero turnovers over 25 minutes in Tuesday's 117-114 overtime Game 1 loss to Miami.
Over Wanamaker's two-year NBA career, he's never had a regular season or overtime game with five steals until Tuesday night's contest. His six assists and and five made free throws were both playoff career highs. This was his second ever playoff game with 24 or more minutes of play. The reserve guard had an excellent defensive game and even replaced center Daniel Theis in overtime when Theis fouled out. Boston will look to turn things around Thursday night in Game 2 versus the Heat.
Wanamaker posted 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in Monday's Game 5 win over Toronto.
On a night when the Celtics didn't shoot threes well as a team, Wanamaker made his presence known off the bench, draining three from beyond the arc on his way to a playoff-high 15 points. In fact, it was Wanamaker's highest point total in any game since Aug. 7.
Wanamaker generated eight points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers over 19 minutes in Tuesday's 122-107 win over the Grizzlies.
Over seven Orlando bubble games, Wanamaker has averaged 19.6 minutes per game, which is right on par with his season average (19.3). Boston has now won four straight and had already locked in third place seeding in the East. Wanamaker could see extra minutes Thursday versus Washington if coach Brad Stevens decides to rest his starters before the playoffs.
Wanamaker posted eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three assists, three rebounds and one steal over 21 minutes in Tuesday's 112-106 loss to the Heat.
This was a nice bounce-back game from the reserve guard after he went scoreless versus the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Wanamaker has averaged 19 minutes of run over three Orlando bubble games, which is right in line with his season average. It was thought Wanamaker might see more run with Kemba Walker (knee) on a minutes restriction, but that didn't happen. Walker played 27 minutes in Tuesday's loss, so Wanamaker's window of opportunity seems to have closed. Boston now faces the Nets on Wednesday in the second game of back-to-backs for both squads.
Wanamaker posted seven points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two assists and one rebound over 13 minutes in Friday's 98-84 scrimmage loss to the Thunder.
Wanamaker was one of eight Boston reserves to see double-digit playing time after coach Brad Stevens benched his starters at halftime. The Thunder dominated Boston for all four quarters, as Boston seemed more interested in regaining its game legs versus winning the contest. Wanamaker remains behind Kemba Walker (knee) and Marcus Smart on the point guard depth chart, though Boston is resting Walker in an effort to make sure his hurt knee is fresh for the playoffs. That might lead to Wanamaker seeing a little more than the 19.3 minutes per contest he averaged over his first 63 appearances. Walker did not play in Friday's scrimmage.
Wanamaker will return to a reserve role in Friday's game against the Jazz, Celtics' play-by-play annoucner Sean Grande reports.
Wanamaker got the spot-start in Wednesday's 112-106 victory over the Cavaliers, but will return back to the bench in favor of Kemba Walker. He has averaged 6.6 points 2.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists across 19.1 minutes in 59 games as a reserve this season.
Wanamaker collected six points (2-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 112-106 win over the Cavaliers.
With Kemba Walker (knee), Gordon Hayward (knee) and Jaylen Brown (hamstring) all out, Wanamaker received the spot start and was mostly ineffective in the win. However, this is the most playing time the second-year guard has logged in 46 games. Brown is expected to miss the next week, and if either Walker or Hayward join him on the sidelines for Friday's matchup versus the Jazz, Wanamaker could see more than 25 minutes again. If this situation unfolds, the 30-year-old will be a solid cheap option to target for daily-fantasy formats.
Wanamaker will start Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers, Celtics play-by-play analyst Sean Grande reports.
With Gordon Hayward (knee), Kemba Walker (rest) and Jaylen Brown (hamstring) all sidelined, coach Brad Stevens will opt to put Wanamaker and Marcus Smart in the backcourt against Cleveland. It will mark Wanamaker's first career start. In the 14 games he's seen at least 24 minutes this season, Wanamaker has averaged 10.4 points, 3.5 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals.
Wanamaker registered nine points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four assists and two rebounds in 29 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 129-120 loss to the Nets.
Wanamaker logged his second-highest minute mark against the Nets, as he took advantage of a depleted backcourt to earn more playing time. Wanamaker should experience a rise in his minutes tally due to the fact names such as Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker and Gordon Hayward are not completely healthy. This could translate to bigger numbers on a short-term basis.
Wanamaker totaled 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 victory over Portland.
Wanamaker, who had been struggling of late, produced a solid performance in the win. He has been seeing additional run with Kemba Walker (knee) on the sidelines, but this was the first time he has been able to capitalize on the opportunity. Unfortunately, Walker could return as soon as Wednesday, news that would see Wanamaker relegated to a minimal role moving forward.
Wanamaker generated six points (1-4 FG, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 22 minutes in Friday's 127-117 win at Minnesota.
The boost in playing time was expected with Kemba Walker (knee) out. Wanamaker was the backup point guard when Marcus Smart needed a breather. What's surprising is Wanamaker didn't attempt any threes. Over his past 27 games, Wanamaker has averaged 6.3 points and 1.6 three-point attempts over 19 minutes of run. The 30-year-old veteran may again need to provide extra minutes should Walker remain out for Sunday's matchup with the Lakers.
Wanamaker (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Hawks.
The veteran guard was originally considered probable with the left ankle sprain, and he'll be able to play Friday, as expected. Kemba Walker (knee) and Marcus Smart (thigh) are back in action Friday, but the absences of Gordon Hayward (foot) and Jaylen Brown (ankle) should provide plenty of opportunities for Wanamaker off the bench.
Wanamaker is probable for Friday's game against the Hawks due to a sprained left ankle.
Wanamaker has emerged from Wednesday's win over the Magic with a sprained ankle, but he should still take the court Friday. Since the new year, he's averaging 6.1 points, 2.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 18.7 minutes.
Wanamaker finished with 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, four steals and three rebounds across 27 minutes off the bench in Monday's 123-115 win over the Hawks.
Javonte Green may have entered the starting five in place of the injured Kemba Walker (knee) and Marcus Smart (thigh), but Wanamaker functionally served as the Celtics' top point guard. After a strong showing through the first two quarters, Wanamaker opened the second half with Boston's top unit and delivered his second straight quality stat line. If the Celtics rule both Walker and Smart out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Magic, Wanamaker would represent an appealing low-cost option in DFS.
Wanamaker totaled 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, two steals and a rebound across 26 minutes in Saturday's 116-95 win over the 76ers.
Wanamaker's 26 minutes mark his highest total since he logged 27 minutes of court time in late December. It's customary for the Pittsburgh product to spend more time on the floor with the second unit when there's a backcourt injury, so it was no surprise to see the 6-foot-4 guard logging the team's fourth-best scoring total with Kemba Walker (groin) sidelined.
Wanamaker had two points (1-1 FG), five assists, one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 111-104 win at Chicago.
Wanamaker has settled himself as Kemba Walker's backup, but he isn't getting enough minutes to be fantasy relevant even if the star point guard is out. As such, he should be left on waivers in all formats.
