Theis (finger) is available for Sunday's game versus the Knicks.
The 28-year-old was considered questionable after picking up the finger injury Friday against the Magic, but he'll still be available for Sunday's contest. Theis came off the bench for the first time this season Friday and will do so again versus the Knicks, per Celtics broadcaster Sean Grande.
Theis (finger) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
After recently clearing the league's health and safety protocols, Theis came off the bench in Friday's win over the Magic, chipping in eight points and 10 rebounds over 21 minutes of action. The severity of the finger sprain he sustained is unknown, but Theis should see plenty of minutes if he is able to go. If he can't, Tristan Thompson would likely see increased run.
Theis isn't in the starting lineup Friday against the Magic.
Theis was cleared to play in Friday's game after he was in the league's health and safety protocols, but he'll come off the bench for the first time this year. However, the Celtics are still without several key players, so Theis could still see significant run despite his bench role.
Theis (COVID-19 protocols) is available Friday against the Magic, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.
Theis and the Celtics are playing their first game since Jan. 8 as a result of postponements. Across his past two appearances, Theis is averaging 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 28.5 minutes.
Theis is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic due to health and safety protocols.
The Celtics have had three games postponed and haven't played since Jan. 8 against the Wizards. Theis may not be available for Friday's contest depending on how contact tracing and/or his coronavirus tests go. The Celtics are thin regardless, so, if he's available, he should see plenty of run.
Theis and the Celtics won't play Wednesday against Orlando after the game was postponed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
For the Celtics, it will be the third consecutive postponement, and it's possible Friday's rematch against Orlando could also be rescheduled.
Theis and the Celtics won't play the Bulls on Tuesday since the game was postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Boston also had Sunday's matchup with Miami pushed back due to COVID-19 issues. Theis and the Celtics are next scheduled to face the Magic on Wednesday, though there's no guarantee that game is played.
Theis went for two points (1-1 FG) and three rebounds across 14 minutes during Monday's win over the Raptors.
Theis was quiet alongside Tristan Thompson as both were outshined by Robert Williams, who went off for a career performance off the bench. The 28-year-old Theis is off to a slow start to the season stat-wise, as he's averaging 6.4 points on 54.8 percent shooting, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 blocks per game across 21.0 minutes. Due to Boston's now-crowded big-man rotation, Theis is seeing a drop-off from last season in nearly every statistical category.
Theis logged 12 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 19 minutes Wednesday in the Celtics' 126-107 win over the Grizzlies.
Theis had started at power forward in each of the Celtics' first four games, but Tristan Thompson's (hamstring) absence Wednesday allowed the former to shift over to center. The 28-year-old proved to be a better fit at center, as he came through with his best stat line of the season, despite his minutes being suppressed due to the blowout nature of the contest. The Celtics are viewing Thompson as day-to-day for now, but Theis could enjoy a decent spike in his short-term fantasy value if the hamstring injury costs Thompson additional time.
Theis has totaled 16 points and 12 rebounds in three games with Boston.
Theis has started each of the first three games but his production has been minimal so far. After a 10-point opening night performance against Milwaukee, Theis has posted just six points and nine rebounds total over the past two games. However, Theis' three starts are surely a good sign that the forward will earn minutes to contribute on any given night.
Theis will start Friday's preseason finale against the Nets, Marc D'Amico of the Celtics' official site reports.
Theis will start and make his first preseason appearance Friday. He figures to be the starter for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Bucks as well.
Theis (back) will be available for Friday's preseason game against the Nets, Clevis Murray of The Athletic reports.
It looks like Theis will make his preseason debut in the team's final game before the regular season begins next week. Theis looks like the starting center, especially with Tristan Thompson out.
Theis (back) was ruled out for Tuesday's preseason game against the 76ers.
Theis, who's been recovering from knee surgery he underwent in October, will miss the preseason opener for Boston with a sore back. The decision to sit him out seems to be more of a precautionary move by the team. His next chance to make a preseason debut comes Friday against the Nets.
Theis (knee) is considered questionable for Tuesday's preseason game against the Sixers.
Theis is still working his way back from an arthroscopic knee procedure in October, but he's ramped up his activity in recent days and will have a chance to make his preseason debut Tuesday. If he's ultimately held out, Theis will have one more opportunity (Thursday vs. Brooklyn) to play before the regular season begins.
Theis underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee Tuesday to remove a loose body.
It seems likely Theis suffered the injury at some point during seeding games or the playoffs, though he didn't seem especially hampered by the issue. He put up numbers as expected in the postseason, averaging 8.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 blocks in 28.2 minutes. According to the team, Theis is expected to be a full participant in next season's training camp.
Theis produced 15 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in Friday's Eastern Conference finals Game 5 121-108 win.
After a horrendous first quarter, Boston pushed the pace and drove to the basket more. This allowed Theis to pick up some hustle put-backs as well as receive some nice dishes from teammates. He also hit a couple of eight-foot jumpers from the middle of Miami's zone defense. Fellow center Enes Kanter provided a first-half boost, but it was Theis and the other Celtics starters that really turned things around during a 41-point third quarter. The Celtics are still down 3-2 and will need another big effort Sunday to keep their season alive.
Theis produced just six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 106-101 Game 2 loss to Miami.
Theis felt the full force of Bam Adebayo on Thursday, as he was unable to limit the Heat big man on either end of the floor; that led to Enes Kanter getting some run, though he's not known for his defense either. Boston's centers are simply no match for Adebayo, but the Celtics will need Theis to find a way against Miami's impressive center moving forward. That said, his path to minutes is relatively clear, so he's likely to remain Boston's primary option at center.
Theis finished with 15 points (6-12 Fg, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a block in 27 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 series-clinching victory over Philadelphia.
Theis had his best game of the series as the Celtics swept through the 76ers. Going up against Joel Embiid was never going to be an easy task, although Theis certainly performed admirably. He'll face off with Marc Gasol in the second round of the playoffs -- a somewhat more favorable matchup.
Theis will not play Thursday against Washington due to right foot soreness.
Theis is one of several Celtics regulars who will get a breather Thursday as the team finishes up seeding play. Expect Robert Williams to start in Theis' place and see extended minutes, with Enes Kanter and Tacko Fall available off the bench.
Theis (foot) will be available Tuesday against Memphis.
The big man was probable coming in, but coach Brad Stevens confirmed that he will have his full rotation available. Through six Orlando games, Theis is averaging 10.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks in 27.7 minutes.
