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.
Edwards produced five points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), an assist and a steal in Wednesday's 112-93 victory against the Heat.
The 21-year-old can thank Tyler Herro for most of his stat line. Edwards forced a turnover from the Miami rookie and immediately assisted a Brad Wanamaker three for his only steal and assist. His only field goal came from a lapse in Herro's concentration that allowed teammate Kemba Walker to find the Purdue product for an open three. Apart from that, the 6-foot-1 guard was largely unimpressive and will likely continue to serve a limited role in what has been a dominant Celtics team to start the 2019-20 season.
Edwards played seven minutes in Friday's 96-92 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and one rebound.
After being dropped from the rotation in the Celtics' previous game Wednesday against the Clippers, Edwards got some run off the bench Friday, but it was likely more out of necessity than anything. Kemba Walker (concussion) was stretchered off the court in the first half following a collision with teammate Semi Ojeyele, and the veteran point guard could be at risk of missing Monday's game against the Kings and additional contests to follow. If that's the case, Brad Wanamaker would likely get the first crack at replacing Walker in the starting five, but Edwards and fellow rookie Javonte Green would likely be in line for minor roles on the second unit.
Edwards generated four points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and one steal over 11 minutes in Monday's 99-85 win in Phoenix.
The rookie's hot shooting from Summer League has generally not continued through the first dozen games of the season. Edwards is hitting only 34 percent of his shots from the field, though he is draining 32 percent from behind the arc. Coach Brad Stevens is trying to develop Edwards into an "instant offense off the bench" role, but the rookie has yet to adjust to NBA level defense. Expect Edwards' struggles to continue in the near future. That said, Stevens is known for getting strong results from young talent. A brief visit with the Maine Red Claws might help Edwards with his confidence.
Edwards produced 18 points (7-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one steal across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 140-133 win in Washington.
The 18 points were of course a career high for the young rookie. With Gordon Hayward (hand) out for roughly six weeks, Boston will need to look to Edwards and other reserves for scoring punch. Hot shooting was Edwards' calling card during Summer League. Over the next few weeks, it would not be surprising for Edwards to see more backcourt minutes as Marcus Smart might see more time at the three to fill in for Hayward.
Edwards gathered one rebound and committed one turnover over three minutes in Saturday's 135-115 win in San Antonio.
Edwards is shooting a meager 32 percent from the field through seven games. Maybe the new short haircut will turn things around. He did not attempt a shot during Saturday's win. The diminutive rookie guard will continue to battle Brad Wanamaker and Marcus Smart for backup minutes at the point. Boston now travels to Dallas for Monday's matchup versus the Mavs.
Edwards has made just 22.7 percent of his field-goal attempts through his first four games this season.
The second-round pick in this year's draft showed what he can do with extended minutes when he scored 10 points in 22 minutes at New York on Oct. 26, but he has struggled with his shot and has not scored more than three points in any of his other three outings. He is currently averaging 4.0 points in 13.0 minutes per game.
Edwards delivered three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one rebound across 11 minutes in Wednesday's 107-93 season-opening loss in Philadelphia.
Wednesday marked the rookie's professional debut. Despite being a second-round pick, the Celtics are enamored with Edwards' ability to create his own shot and hit threes. Look for him to be given more opportunities to provide scoring off the bench for Boston. Fellow rookie Grant Williams also saw some run (seven minutes) Wednesday.
Edwards dropped 30 points (10-16 FG, 9-15 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and one block in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 118-95 win over the Cavaliers.
Edwards went to work in the third quarter, splashing eight treys in that quarter alone. It's unlikely Edwards will have the opportunity to do such a thing on a consistent basis this season. Nevertheless, Marcus Smart is more than capable of playing multiple positions, in which case Edwards could potentially earn the job as Kemba Walker's primary backup point guard.
