Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Scores 13 points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Sees 22 minutes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Clear of injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 6, 2020 05:00 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Likely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Another sound effort off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Logs 26 minutes, scores 15 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Dishes out five dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

December 22, 2019 11:36 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Tallies eight dimes, no turnovers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker finished with zero points (0-1 FG), eight assists, two rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's 119-93 win over the Hornets.

Wanamaker amassed a career high in dimes while committing zero turnovers. Moreover, Wanamaker has earned at least 20 minutes in five of his last six appearances due to the absence of Marcus Smart (eye), though it's unclear whether Smart will be ready to return for Wednesday's tilt versus the Raptors.

December 20, 2019 05:52 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Officially cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker (hip) has been cleared to play Friday against the Pistons, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Wanamaker will be ready to roll for Friday's matchup. He's averaging 21.2 minutes and 5.8 points over his last five games.

December 19, 2019 05:32 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Deemed probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker (hip) is probable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Wanamaker is dealing with a left hip issue, though it doesn't sound like it will keep him from suiting up Friday. Through seven games this month, he's averaging 6.7 points, 2.7 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 20.4 minutes.

December 19, 2019 08:28 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Plays 26 minutes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker delivered seven points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 109-103 win over the Mavericks

Wanamaker's big minutes were needed due to Marcus Smart (eye) missing another contest. For the season, Wanamaker has yet to receive a DNP and his per game minutes are up from 9.5 last year to 18.2 this season. He appeared in only 36 games last season. Through seven December matches, Wanamaker is averaging 20.7 minutes of run per tilt. The 30-year-old appears much more confident this year relative to last year's rookie season. The Celtics now head home for Friday's match-up versus the Pistons.

December 9, 2019 10:24 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Logs 22 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker managed three points (1-6 FG, 1-2 FT) and three assists in 22 minutes during Monday's 110-88 win over the Cavaliers.

Wanamaker saw decent minutes in the blowout, as only two Celtics (Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum) earned at least 30 minutes. Despite the subpar line, Wanamaker has been efficient as the team's backup point guard. Nevertheless, he's best reserved for use in deeper formats as long as Kemba Walker is healthy.

November 26, 2019 01:08 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Disappoints in backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker managed just three points (0-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists and one rebound in 21 minutes during Monday's 103-102 victory over Sacramento.

Wanamaker had been a hot pickup in many leagues with Kemba Walker (neck) ruled out. However, it was not a good night as Wanamaker missed all eight of his shot attempts. He has been a sneaky source of points, assists and threes over the past week and this was simply an off-night. He is by no means a must-roster player but could still be picked up in deeper formats to see if he can turn things around Wednesday.

November 23, 2019 10:56 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Dazzles off bench once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker had 14 points (5-8 FG, 0-2 3PT, 4-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench during Friday's 96-92 loss at Denver.

Wanamaker has reached double-digit scoring for the third straight game, and he might be in line for an uptick in playing time moving forward in the event Kemba Walker (concussion) is forced to miss additional time after being stretchered off the floor Friday. Boston will have two days off before returning to action Monday versus Sacramento, so expect clarity on Walker's status to arrive at some point over the weekend.

November 21, 2019 07:48 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Another nice performance Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker compiled 14 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 107-104 overtime loss to the Clippers.

Wanamaker continues to make a name for himself, reaching double-digits yet again. Decent scoring aside, Wanamaker is also adding peripheral stats while playing solid enough minutes on a nightly basis. He has established himself as the primary backup behind Kemba Walker and those in deeper formats should consider picking him up, at least until Gordon Hayward (hand) returns to the lineup.

November 19, 2019 12:36 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Reaches double-figures in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker supplied 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists, three steals and a rebound in 29 minutes during Monday's win over the Suns.

Wanamaker reached double-figures for the third time in his past five games while distributing a season-high six assists in a career-high 29 minutes. The 29-year-old saw extended minutes due to Marcus Smart exiting the game early with an ankle injury. If Smart's forced to miss time, Wanamaker appears to be first in line for an expanded role, as Javonte Green, who's currently listed as Smart's primary backup on the depth chart, was a healthy scratch.

November 16, 2019 06:48 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Scores nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker chipped in with nine points (2-4 FG, 5-6 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal over 18 minutes in Friday's 105-100 road win over the Warriors.

Wanamaker supplied nine of the meager 17 points provided by Boston's bench during this close win. Boston will need more bench production if it wants the winning streak to continue through this five-game road trip. Wanamaker is seeing a larger role for Boston in his second season as a Celtic. He's averaging 13.5 minutes of run through the first 11 games, with no DNP's. That's a drastic change from last season, when Wanamaker appeared in only 36 games. Still, Wanamaker will continue to battle with rookie Carsen Edwards for backup point guard duties behind Kemba Walker.

November 10, 2019 11:08 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Plays 17 minutes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker mustered seven points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and two steals across 17 minutes in Saturday's 135-115 win in San Antonio.

The 30-year-old sophomore has seen his minutes uptick slightly, playing 12 minutes per game relative to the 10 minutes per contest he provided during his rookie season. The bullish point guard seems more confident in his approach and is shooting better from outside through eight games. Yes, the sample size is small, but at 7-1, all of Boston's players are looking good. The C's now head to Dallas for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks.

November 9, 2019 01:16 PM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Scores nine points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker logged nine points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, three rebounds and two steals in Thursday's 108-87 win over Charlotte.

Boston's commanding lead in the third quarter allowed the 30-year-old sophomore to score a season-high nine points, despite him playing just 16 minutes. Wanamaker is only averaging 11 minutes per game, and he likely won't see a significant uptick in minutes unless injuries jeopardize the Celtics' backcourt depth.

November 2, 2019 10:20 AM
Celtics' Brad Wanamaker: Effective off bench in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wanamaker finished with five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 FT), four assists, three rebounds and a steal in 15 minutes during Friday's 104-102 win over the Knicks.

Wanamaker saw a season-high 15 minutes Friday, translating his extra run into a solid all-around line. The Pittsburgh product flashed some deft passing skills while managing to convert each shot he attempted. Despite a strong outing, Wanamaker isn't expected to play meaningful minutes for the Celtics this year and can safely be kept off of fantasy radars.
