Edwards (COVID-19 protocols) is out Sunday against the Knicks.
Edwards will sit out a second straight game due to protocols, but he was catching DNP-CDs anyway, so his absence isn't expected to affect coach Brad Stevens' rotation.
The Celtics ruled Edwards out for Friday's game against the Magic due to the NBA's health and safety protocols for COVID-19, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
Edwards is a new addition to the injury report, which the Celtics updated for the first time since Sunday on the heels of three straight postponements. The Celtics haven't revealed whether Edwards' entry into the health and safety protocol is a result of him testing positive for COVID-19, or if he was merely a close contact of an infected person. Regardless, he'll sit out Friday, but he could have a chance to clear the protocol ahead of the Celtics' next game Sunday versus the Knicks.
Edwards (COVID-19) is available for Friday's game against the Wizards, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
The 22-year-old was cleared to play Friday through contact tracing, but Tristan Thompson, Robert Williams and Grant Williams are unavailable due to the league's health and safety protocols. Edwards is averaging 7.3 minutes in four games this season, but he could have an increased role versus Washington if Jeff Teague (ankle) remains sidelined.
Edwards (health and safety protocols) is questionable for Friday's game against Washington, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.
It looks like several Celtics are going through contact tracing for the virus, so depending on the results it's possible Edwards could miss a string of games heading into the weekend.
Edwards received another DNP-Coach's Decision in Tuesday's 116-111 win at Indiana.
Through the first four games of the season, Edwards has appeared only once -- a three-minute stint during Boston's blowout loss to Brooklyn on Christmas Day. Edwards has clearly fallen behind Jeff Teague and rookie Payton Pritchard on the Celtics' point guard depth chart. His lack of minutes is particularly concerning with Kemba Walker (knee) out. Maybe Edwards will see some run in Wednesday's second game of a back-to-back as the Celtics return home to face the Grizzlies.
Edwards generated eight points (3-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and a steal over 24 minutes in Thursday's 96-90 loss to Washington.
Boston had already locked up the third seed in the East, so coach Brad Stevens decided to rest his six regulars and give the reserves some extended run in the finale. Accordingly, Edwards saw season-high playing time, though he didn't impress. Expect the rookie to see very few minutes during Boston's playoff run.
Edwards produced 19 points (8-18 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 137-112 scrimmage loss to the Rockets.
Boston rested all of its key players and started Edwards, Romeo Langford, Semi Ojeleye, Robert Williams and Brad Wanamaker. The Celtics will never, ever go with this starting five during a regular-season game. That said, Edwards jumped at the opportunity and led the C's in points and shot attempts and tied Tremont Waters in assists. From Jan. 1 to the March sports stoppage, Edwards appeared briefly in only 11 games for Boston. He may see some extended run if coach Brad Stevens once again rests regulars just before the playoffs.
Edwards was sent to the G League on Friday.
Edwards continues to see spot action for the Celtics. The organization will opt to send him down to the G League so he can get extended in-game run, however.
Edwards didn't leave the bench in Wednesday's 114-103 road win at Utah.
Edwards has only played five total minutes during Boston's last nine games. It seems he would be better served by another visit to the Maine Red Claws to receive a boost in playing time and minutes.
Edwards didn't play during the Celtics' 116-105 loss at the Rockets on Tuesday.
The point guard has seen action in just one of Boston's last five games, notching one rebound in two minutes at Houston on Feb. 11. Edwards has struggled for playing time of late, as he has appeared in just five games since Jan. 13 and shouldn't have any sort of upside in most formats since he has been unable to crack coach Brad Stevens' rotation through most of the 2019-20 season.
Edwards delivered 41 points ( 14-28 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two steals in Saturday's 119-117 home win over the Swarm.
Edwards provided a much needed boost to a Crustacean Nation squad playing the second of a back-to-back. Both Celtic-assignee Edwards and reserve Sheldon Jeter drained 6 three-pointers each to help the Claws sqeak by the struggling Swarm. With Edwards help, Maine shot 44% from behind the arc. Maine next plays the Charge at home on Thursday. Edwards might be called up by the Celtics before that matchup.
Edwards was assigned to the G League on Saturday.
Edwards has seen a relatively small role with the Celtics this season. The organization will opt to get him some more action in the G League.
Edwards won't be active for Monday's tilt with the Lakers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Although he was recalled from the Celtics' G League affiliate ahead of Monday's game, Edwards won't be needed for the marquee matchup against the Lakers. There's a chance that the rookie guard could return to the rotation for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
The Celtics recalled Edwards from the G League's Maine Red Claws ahead of Monday's game against the Lakers.
Though he's back with the parent club, Edwards is far from assured to re-enter coach Brad Stevens' rotation. The rookie second-round pick appeared in only one of Boston's last six games, logging nine minutes of garbage time in a 140-105 win over the Pelicans on Jan. 11. He moves back to the big club after putting up 28 points (10-19 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT) to go with seven boards, four assists and a steal in 37 minutes Sunday in Maine's 108-107 win over the College Park Skyhawks.
Edwards posted 28 points (10-19 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and six turnovers in Sunday's 108-107 win at College Park.
With two-way player Tremont Waters playing with the parent-club Celtics, Edwards, a rostered Celtic on assignment, led the Red Claws to victory. His 19 shot attempts by far led the Claws. The six turnovers were certainly a concern but not unexpected due to Edwards' lack of familiarity with his teammates. Crustacean Nation is now idle until Friday's game at Long Island.
The Celtics assigned Edwards to the G League's Maine Red Claws on Monday.
No longer a member of the NBA rotation, Edwards will head to the G League in search of playing time. Expect him to suit up for Maine in its next game Tuesday versus the Delaware Blue Claws before rejoining the Celtics prior to Friday's matchup with the Hawks.
Edwards finished with zero stats in five minutes during Friday's 129-117 victory over Cleveland.
Edwards missed his only shot attempt Friday during his five minutes on the court. His role has diminished of late, to the point where he is not even an every night part of the rotation. He has the ability to score in bunches but the path to minutes is just not there at the moment. He would need a number of injuries to other players to even be considered in deeper formats at this stage.
Edwards (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Hornets, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Edwards will be available to play if needed in Sunday's game. The rookie is logging 11.2 minutes over 21 appearances this season.
Edwards is listed as probable for Sunday's contest against the Hornets due to a right quad contusion.
Edwards was a late addition to the injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup after experiencing pain in his right quad. The rookie is currently averaging. 3.9 points and 1.7 rebounds in 21 outings this season.
Edwards has been sent to the G League ahead of Thursday's game against the 76ers, Clevis Murray of The Athletic reports.
Edwards has seen consistent run with the Celtics this season, appearing in 21 games and garnering 11.2 minutes per contest. However, the team will opt to get him some extended run in the G League.
