Celtics' Abdel Nader: Out 2-to-3 months following wrist surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nader recently underwent a right wrist arthroscopy and ulnar osteotomy, Chris Forsberg of ESPN reports.

Nader reportedly suffered a fractured wrist back in high school, which has resulted in some lingering issues during the start of his professional career. In an attempt to address the issue once and for all, Nader underwent surgery Friday and is now slated to sit out 2-to-3 months while recovering. That timetable puts a return at the end of August or in the first few weeks of September, which means the Celtics big man should be 100 percent for the start of training camp. Nader averaged 10.9 minutes in just 48 games during his rookie season, but could find an even tougher path to playing time next year with guys like Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward both rejoining the team after dealing with long-term injuries.

Celtics' Abdel Nader: Not listed on injury report for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nader (fac) isn't listed on the injury report for Game 1 against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Nader sat out practice on Friday after experiencing blurred vision following a shot to the face. However, it appears he's avoided any sort of concussion and should be a full go for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. That said, Nader has been a DNP-CD in 7-of-12 games in the playoffs thus far and isn't a fantasy target.

Celtics' Abdel Nader: Not practicing Firday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nader did not practice Friday due to blurry vision after getting hit in the face, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.

It's unclear exactly when Nader suffered the injury, but with the 24-year-old not being a featured member of the Celtics' current playoff rotation, there's no reason to have him practicing while dealing with vision problems.

Celtics' Abdel Nader: Set for spot start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nader will pick up the start in Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Nets, Sean Grande of the Boston Sports Journal reports.

The Celtics are set to rest Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford on Wednesday, which allows Nader to claim one of the open starting roles. With only a handful of bodies available, Nader should be in line for extended minutes, though there's still likely more intriguing value plays elsewhere on the slate.

Celtics' Abdel Nader: Averaging 17 minutes over last seven games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nader delivered three points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two blocks, one assist and one steal across 17 minutes in Monday's 102-94 win in Phoenix.

Nader has averaged 17 minutes per game over his last seven contests. Injuries to Kyrie Irving (knee), Marcus Smart (thumb), Daniel Theis (knee) and others has forced coach Brad Stevens to give more minutes to reserve players such as Nader and Shane Larkin. So far, the results have been solid as Boston has won five of their last six matches. After a full-season in the G-League, Nader has stuck with Boston all season, appearing in 40 games and averaging 11 minutes and 3 points per contest. He also has 33 DNP's. The recent return of Jaylen Brown has eaten into some of Nader's playing time. The rookie small forward is relevant in only the deepest of fantasy formats.
