Jabari Bird: Waived by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (personal) has been waived by the Hawks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Bird will be let go by Atlanta. He has been away from basketball since his arrest in September.

Hawks' Jabari Bird: Traded to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (personal) had been traded to Atlanta, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

Bird has been away from the team since an arrest in September, but dealing him opens up a roster spot for Boston to become active in the buyout market. The Hawks' intentions are unclear, but they'll probably part ways with Bird in short order.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Not with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (not injury related) was not with the team during Tuesday's practice, Clevis Murray of The Athletic reports.

Bird was arrested after an alleged assault earlier in September. Until the legal process plays out, he'll likely continue to be away from the team.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Arrested after alleged assault
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird was arrested in Boston after allegedly assaulting, strangling and kidnapping an unidentified person in a domestic-violence incident Friday, reports.

The 24-year-old was kept in a local hospital over the weekend for an evaluation and is scheduled to appear in court Monday to address three separate charges. The Celtics acknowledged shortly after Bird's arrest that they were aware of the incident, but the team likely won't comment further on the matter until the legal process plays out. Bird signed a two-year contract with the Celtics after spending his rookie campaign on a two-way deal with the team. He appeared in 13 regular-season tilts for Boston in 2017-18, averaging 3.0 points and 1.5 rebounds across 8.8 minutes per game.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Finalizing two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird and the Celtics are finalizing a two-year extension, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

A second-round draft pick in 2017, Bird spent his rookie season on two-way contract and saw action in just 13 games with the Celtics. However, he dominated with the team's G-League affiliate and averaged 19.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals across 20 games. Showing plenty of promise, Bird will now get a standard two-year deal from Boston, which slots him in as added depth on the wing. While he's a lock to see the court in more games than he did as a rookie, Bird still shouldn't be in consideration for fantasy purposes in the majority of leagues while operating as a deep reserve.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (rest) is expected to play during Sunday's summer league game against Portland.

Bird was given Saturday's tilt off for rest. However, it appears the coaching staff wants him in uniform for the quarterfinals. In four summer league games, Bird has averaged 16.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 steals in 29.8 minutes.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird will rest during Saturday's summer league game against the Heat, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

Bird, who has appeared in four summer league games, will get Saturday off. He's averaging 16.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 steals across 29.8 minutes.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Records double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird posted 13 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals across 31 minutes during Thursday's 82-75 summer league victory over the Knicks.

Bird, who secured a double-double, led the Celtics in rebounding and steals Thursday. He saw 115 minutes with Boston last season, though spent most of the year in the G-League, where he started all 20 of his appearances and averaged 19.3 points per game on 51.7 percent shooting. Considering Boston's roster is one of the strongest in the league, it will be tough for Bird to find a bigger role this season.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Scores 16 in summer league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird scored 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding five assists, three rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 100-80 summer league win over the Hornets.

He continues to put together a strong summer league campaign and make a good impression on the Boston brass. Bird only suited up for 13 games with the Celtics as a rookie last year, spending the rest of his time in the G-League, but with a more mature skill set the 24-year-old could find a regular spot at the end of the bench this season.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Leads team with 24 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird had 24 points (9-17 FG, 6-6 FT) in Saturday's summer league loss to the Nuggets.

Bird was the only Celtics player to score in double-figures in the loss, and he accounted for 11 of the team's first 13 points in the first quarter. Bird spent much of last season in the G League but will look to secure a more permanent -- albeit likely minimal -- role in the NBA next season.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Two boards shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird finished with 14 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Friday's 95-89 summer league win over Philadelphia.

Despite standing at 6-foot-6, 198 pounds, Bird showed off his rebounding ability Friday. He started 20 games in the G-League last season, averaging 19.3 points, 5.8 boards, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals. Even if he has a great summer league, it will be hard for him to find run on the Celtics considering the team's depth.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Starting at shooting guard Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird will draw the start at shooting guard for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Nets.

With the Celtics in a meaningless final game before the postseason, coach Brad Stevens is opting to get his young players some run and rest his usual starters. Bird has played over 20 minutes on two occasions this season, averaging 12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Scores 15 points in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird totaled 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-3 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's 111-104 victory over Chicago.

Bird finished with a career-high 15 points in an impressive performance Friday. He should be looking at more run over the final games of the regular season and while the upside is not spectacular, he does bring the defense and has shown he can score when given the opportunity.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Active and available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (back) will be active and available to play in Sunday's matchup with the Pelicans, Taylor Snow of reports.

Bird was dealing with a back injury over the last week or so, but is finally back to full strength and ready to take the court. It's good timing for the Celtics, as they're set to be without Kyrie Irving (knee), Jaylen Brown (concussion) and Marcus Smart (thumb) in the backcourt. For that reason, Bird may actually see some minutes in the regular rotation Sunday after playing in just four games previously this season. That said, he's still not someone to target for DFS purposes.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (back) won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Brian Robb of the Boston Sports Journal reports.

The Celtics are dealing with a slew of injuries Wednesday, which could have potentially resulted in Bird seeing a few minutes at the back end of the regular rotation. However, Bird is still dealing with a back injury of his own that he suffered in the G-League, so he'll unfortunately be unable to make his fifth appearance of the season. With Bird unavailable, the Celtics will have just 10 active bodies Wednesday.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Still out due to back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird sat out his fourth Red Claws game due to a back injury. Maine lost 102-94 to the Raptors 905.

Bird hasn't played since January 31st, starting but only seeing eight minutes of run versus the Santa Cruz Warriors. With the All-Star break upon us, Crustacean Nation does not have another game until Wednesday, February 21st, giving Bird some much needed time to recuperate.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Recalled from G-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird was recalled from the G-League on Monday, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports.

Bird took a temporary stop in the G-League, playing in two games for the the Celtics' affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. He averaged an impressive 24.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.5 blocks during those contests, and his strong play will earn him a call-up to the big club with Marcus Morris joining the inactive list while taking the night off for rest. At best, Bird could see a handful of minutes against the Hawks Monday, but not enough to make a legitimate impact in most fantasy leagues.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Assigned to G-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird was assigned to the G-League on Monday, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports.

Bird has seen action in only two of the Celtics first six games, totaling just 17 minutes overall. With Marcus Morris (knee) slated to rejoin the active roster, the Celtics will subsequently send Bird to the G-League, where he'll get the chance to see extended minutes. As a two-way player, Bird will spend the majority of the upcoming season with the Red Claws and shouldn't be on the fantasy radar.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Added to active NBA roster Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird, who is on a two-way contract, has been called up to the Celtics' active NBA roster in the wake of Gordon Hayward's (ankle) injury, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

Bird can only spend up to 45 days at the NBA level, so the team will seemingly be using him as a stop-gap while they attempt to find another player to replace Hayward. That said, it seems doubtful Bird will see significant run.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Agrees to two-way deal with Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird, who was selected by Boston with the 56th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, has agreed to join the team on a two-way contract, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

The Celtics likely wouldn't have been able to find significant playing time for Bird in their stacked depth chart, so they've opted to send him to the G-League for the majority of the season instead. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard who spent four years at Cal will still be able to spend up to 45 days at the NBA level, however.
