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.
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.
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.
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.
