Celtics' Tacko Fall: Re-ups with Boston on two-way pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall agreed Monday with the Celtics on a one-year, two-way contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The 7-foot-5 center will fill one of the Celtics' two two-way spots for the second season in a row. As a rookie in 2019-20, Fall made only seven appearances with the Celtics, instead spending the bulk of his time in the G League with the Maine Red Claws.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Plays eight minutes in season-ender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall produced four points (2-2 FG), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over eight minutes in Thursday's 96-90 loss to Washington.

Thursday marked Fall's lone appearance during the Orlando play-in games. For the final game of the regular season, coach Brad Stevens decided to give six regulars the day off and let his reserves see extra floor time. Fall's four rebounds were a career high. For the regular season, Fall appeared in seven games for Boston and 29 games for the G League Maine Red Claws. Fall, who is on a two-way contract, will probably see limited minutes at best during Boston's playoff run. During those 29 games with Maine, Fall averaged 12.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per contest while shooting 70.7 percent from the field.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Sees nine minutes in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall eked out six points (3-6 FG), six rebounds and one block over nine minutes in Tuesday's scrimmage loss to the Rockets.

Coach Brad Stevens decided to rest all his key players, which allowed Fall and the reserves to receive a nice boost in playing time. That said, Fall played the fewest minutes of the 10 Celtics who saw action. Fellow reserve center Vincent Poirier is expected to be absent for some of September due to paternity leave, which may provide an opportunity for Fall to play some minutes in Orlando. Otherwise, expect the rookie to watch the action from the bench.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Makes All-Defensive G League Team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall was named to the NBA G League All-Defensive Team, which is awarded to the top five defensive players in the league.

Fall averaged 2.9 blocks per game, good for third in the G League behind Christ Koumadje (4.0) and Kenny Wooten (3.6). Fall's imposing 7-foot-5 frame altered an abundance of shots throughout the 2019-20 season. The big center also averaged 12.9 points and 11.1 rebounds (7.6 defensive rebounds) while shooting 70.7 percent from the field over 23.3 minutes per game. It will be interesting to see if Fall garners playing time with the Celtics when the season resumes in late July.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Near triple-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall generated 16 points (7-7 FG, 2-5 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and nine blocked shots over 25 minutes in Sunday's 120-112 home loss to Windy City.

Tacko was one swat short of a triple-double in this disappointing loss to Windy City. Fall started the game, but five personal fouls limited his playing time. Maine also has center Vincent Poirier on loan from the Celtics eating into Fall's playing time, yet Fall still posted a great stat line. The Claws will look to turn things around Wednesday at Delaware.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Healthy again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall has appeared in both of the Maine Red Claws' last two games, putting up a combined 32 points (14-20 FG, 2-6 FT), 29 rebounds, 10 blocks and two assists between the two contests.

Fall played 30 and 28 minutes, respectively, in wins over the Capital City Go-Go and Erie Bayhawks, indicating the injury that forced him out early in a Feb. 23 victory over the Westchester Knicks is no longer a concern. Though the Celtics are shorthanded due to injuries heading into Wednesday's game in Cleveland, Fall apparently won't be an option off the bench. The NBA's official injury report lists Fall as still being on assignment in the G League.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Leaves two minutes into game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall left Sunday's game versus Westchester early due to an undisclosed injury. The big man exited with 9:41 remaining in the first quarter.

Fall was called for his second offensive foul early in the game. During the resulting stoppage in play, Fall was subbed out and didn't return. There was no obvious visual clue as to what sort of injury Fall might have sustained, but he's dealt with shoulder and concussion issues already this season.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Supplies another big double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall supplied 16 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 FT), 15 rebounds and three blocked shots in Saturday's 116-109 road lost to the Raptors 905.

Fall and Yante Maten were the only effective shooters for a Red Claw team that the 905 held to 40 percent shooting from the field and just 19 percent from behind the arc. The loss snapped a three game winning streak for Crustacean Nation. Maine now quickly travels to Westchester for an afternoon game versus the Knicks.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Posts big double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall delivered 14 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 FT), 18 boards, an assist, five blocked shots and a block over 30 minutes in Thursday's 119-100 home win over the Skyhawks.

Fall was hosting a "blocko" party in Portland, Maine. The nimble 7-foot-5 center owned the key on both ends and helped the Red Claws deliver a dominant second-half effort. Over his past five games, Fall has averaged 14.2 rebounds per contest. Fall is now entrenched in Maine's starting lineup. Expect more gaudy stats to follow.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Double-doubles in win over Charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall generated 18 points (9-10 FG, 0-1 FT), 16 rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot over 23 minutes in Thursday's 122-98 home win over Canton.

Fall received a rare start and was extremely efficient from the field. Frankly, the Charge just had no answer for his inside moves. Fall demonstrated fancy footwork on multiple post-up maneuvers. Maine dominated this game from start to finish and had an 18-point lead at halftime. Thursday's performance marked Tacko's 11th double-double of the G League season. Fall could find himself back up with the Celtics depending on the severity of Daniel Theis' ankle injury.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Joins parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall was recalled from the G League on Friday.

The 24-year-old has been with the Maine Red Claws for the past couple weeks but will rejoin the Celtics with Enes Kanter (hip) out and Jayson Tatum (groin) and Jaylen Brown (ankle) questionable Friday against the Magic. Fall has appeared in only four NBA games this season and is unlikely to see significant minutes, but he nonetheless provides additional frontcourt depth.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Double-doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall generated 14 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, two blocked shots and one steal over 23 minutes in Thursday's 107-103 home win over Salt Lake City.

Fall came off the bench to produce his ninth double-double of the season. Tacko continues to come off the bench as Yante Maten starts at center and has been a key offensive leader for the Claws. The two make for a strong one-two punch, providing coach Darren Erman with excellent options at the five depending on the pace of play. Fall, Maten and Kaiser Gates (14 boards) helped Crustacean Nation dominate the glass, as Maine out rebounded the Stars 48-38. Maine will look to extend their seven game winning streak Friday at Long Island.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Blocks five in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall delivered 14 points, nine rebounds, five blocked shots and one steal during Saturday's 100-93 home win over the Drive.

That's 15 blocks in the last three games for Tacko. Fall continues to come off the bench for the Red Claws, as Maine prefers to start games with an uptempo, smaller lineup. Fall had been with the Celtics for their last two games, but received two DNP's. He'll now travel with the Claws to Erie for Tuesday's matchup with the Bayhawks.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Recalled for next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall has been recalled from the G League and will be available for the Celtics' next two games, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

Fall has seen minimal action at the NBA level this season, but it's possible he steps onto the court over the next two games. In 11 total minutes, he has 13 points, seven rebounds and two blocks.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Big double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall produced 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-6 FT), 18 rebounds, one assist and two blocked shots in Sunday's 115-91 home win over the Skyhawks.

Fall oddly came off the bench for Crustacean Nation despite starting the prior contest. He was a quick sub four minutes in and posted his big double-double over 28 minutes of run. Fall's 18 boards were a G League career high for the 7-foot-6 center. The Claws will stay at home for Tuesday's New Year's Eve matinee versus the Blue Coats.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Grabs 16 boards in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall grabbed 16 rebounds, to go with 12 points and five blocked shots, over 23 minutes in Friday's 117-116 loss at Capital City.

Friday was Fall's first G League team start in nine contests. His five blocks were a season high. The 7-foot-6 center shot a perfect 5-for-5 from the field, but was unable to prevent the Go-Go from scoring 35 points during the decisive fourth quarter. The Claws now head home for Sunday's match-up with the SkyHawks.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Scores five in second NBA game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall scored five points (2-2 FG, 1-2 FT), grabbed two boards and blocked a shot during Friday's 114-93 home win over Detroit.

The blowout win at home let coach Brad Steven appease the crowd and insert Tacko Fall for the last five minutes of the game. His 7-foot-6 frame made Thon Maker look short. Fall scored first with a nice post-up move on the block. His second bucket was a dunk off a nice pass from Brad Wanamaker. Fall, who is on a two-way contract, will probably stay with the parent club until Robert Williams (hip) returns in early January.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Recalled from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall has been recalled from the G League, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

Fall has appeared in just one NBA game this season, seeing four minutes in the third game of the year. Even if he does take the court Wednesday against the Mavericks, it's unlikely to be in a significant role.

December 12, 2019 06:24 PM
Celtics' Tacko Fall: Active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fall (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the 76ers, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

While Fall will join the Celtics for Thursday's game against Philadelphia, he likely won't see any minutes, as the big man has appeared in just one game for the big club this season.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Showing improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brad Stevens said Monday that Fall (knee) is "looking great" and should resume practicing with the G League's Maine Red Claws on Tuesday, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Fall has been sidelined since Nov. 25 with a bone bruise in his right knee but appears to have mostly moved past the injury at this stage. Assuming his return to practice this week goes well, Fall could be ready to rejoin the Red Claws lineup shortly thereafter.
