Theis posted six points (3-3 FG, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one block across 20 minutes in Thursday's 114-103 win over the Sixers in London.
That's three straight games of 19 or more minutes for Theis, Theis, Baby. The German rookie is proving to be a valuable big man off the bench for the Eastern Conference leaders. Over the past three games, he's averagied nine rebounds per contest. The Celtics will now leave London and face the Pelicans at home on Tuesday night.
Theis tallied four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 90-89 loss to the Heat.
Theis also committed four fouls, and he did not attempt a single shot the entire contest. Despite recently suffering a broken nose, Theis is wearing a protective mask and playing through it after a recent procedure. This is the fourth time he has earned 20-plus minutes in 2017-18, and the rookie is a role player who usually doesn't offer all that much from a fantasy perspective.
Theis underwent a procedure on Tuesday to have his nose reset after breaking it late last week and while he originally wasn't expected to play Wednesday, he's now been cleared to do so. Look for Theis to sport a protective mask and he doesn't appear to be on any restrictions. That said, Theis will still likely only see minutes in the mid-to-upper teens at best, so he'll largely be irrelevant in the majority of fantasy leagues.
Theis (nose) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Miami.
Theis suffered a broken nose last week, and the plan is for him to get it reset Tuesday. Initially, the Celtics ruled Theis out of Wednesday's game, but it appears as though they'll now wait until shootaround in the morning to decide if he'll be able to play. Theis played 17 minutes in Monday's win over the Pacers, finishing with four points, four rebounds and a block.
Theis, who's available to play in Monday's game against the Pacers, is set to have his nose reset Tuesday and will then be held out of Wednesday's game against the Heat.
Theis broke his nose Friday against the Jazz and while he'll temporarily play through it, he'll eventually get the night off Wednesday for recovery purposes. That said, the Celtics did indicate that they expected Theis back in the lineup Thursday against the Knicks, so it should just be a one-game layoff. Theis is averaging just 12.2 minutes so far this season.
