Celtics' Daniel Theis: Undergoes knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Double-doubles in Game 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Held in check Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Pops for 15 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Set to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Probable with sore foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis is considered probable for Tuesday's game against Memphis due to a sore foot.

The issue doesn't look to be anything of real concern, but the Celtics could exercise caution with the playoffs approaching. Theis played 30 minutes in Sunday's overtime win over the Magic, finishing with six points, seven boards and three blocks.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Double-doubles in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis compiled 11 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 28 minutes during Friday's 122-100 victory over the Raptors.

Theis has been a top-80 player throughout the resumption and continues to quietly go about his work on a nightly basis. The efficient big man is by no means a flashy fantasy option but his role is secure and he has the ability to do a little bit of everything. His average production across multiple categories lends itself to roto formats as opposed to points leagues.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Scores 11 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis produced 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block over 26 minutes in Tuesday's 112-106 loss to Miami.

Theis continues as the Celtics' unheralded starting center, often providing the only low post presence for Boston. Through three Orlando bubble games, Theis has averaged 11.0 points, 6.3 boards and 1.3 blocks in 28.7 minutes per contest. Boston has no time to complain about the calls in the Heat loss, as the C's face Brooklyn on Wednesday night for the second of back-to-backs for both clubs.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Resting in final scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis will rest for Tuesday's scrimmage against the Rockets, Tom Westerholm of The Springfield Republican reports.

Theis will be given the day off ahead of Friday's opener against the Bucks. Coach Brad Stevens is also choosing to rest Marcus Smart, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Struggles versus Adams in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis muscled out eight points (4-5 FG), three boards and three assists over 15 first-half minutes in Friday's scrimmage loss to the Thunder.

Coach Brad Stevens benched all five starters, including Theis, after the first half. The German big man probably appreciated the breather. While Theis' stats were respectable, he struggled against Thunder veteran Steven Adams, who posted 17 points and seven boards in limited run. The ugly loss gives coach Brad Stevens plenty of ammo for Boston's next bubble practice session.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Scores 20 versus Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis tallied 20 points (8-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 114-111 win over the Pacers.

Theis was extremely efficient, scoring 20-plus for the second time in his last 10 tilts. The 27-year-old big man has been playing the best basketball of his career over the last couple months, and he has established himself as a viable option in most fantasy formats.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Goes for 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis scored 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 129-120 loss to the Nets. He also added two rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Theis has embraced a bigger role offensively of late, as he has scored in double digits in eight of his last nine contests since a two-game absence in early February. Theis has settled as the team's starting center, and he is averaging 14.1 points with 9.2 rebounds during that nine-game stretch.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Gathers 15 boards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis mustered eight points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, three blocks and three assists across 39 minutes during Friday's 111-110 loss to the Rockets.

Theis continued to step up, averaging a double-double of 15 points and 11.2 rebounds in his last five games. He also played a career-high 39 minutes despite facing a small-ball Rockets team, suggesting head coach Brad Stevens may entrust the third-year Celtic the same crucial role moving forward.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Scores 16 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis generated 16 points (6-9 FG, 0-2 3pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal over 26 minutes in Wednesday's 114-103 road win at Utah.

Theis delivered another underappreciated yet effective performance as the unheralded fifth starter for Boston. Over this four-game road trip, Theis averaged a double-double of 16.8 points and 10.3 rebounds while shooting a diligent 64.1 percent from the field. What doesn't show up in the box score is Theis' uncanny ability to screen defenders while Boston's wings drive to the basket. Look for Theis' minutes to decline slightly Saturday at home versus the Rockets' small ball lineup.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Career night in points, rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis exploded for 25 points (9-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 16 rebounds and one block over 28 minutes in Friday's 127-117 win at Minnesota.

Sluggish defensive efforts from both Minnesota and Boston led to Theis delivering career highs in both points and rebounds. Certainly the absence of Karl-Anthony Towns was also helpful. Nonetheless, Theis has now started in 48 games for Boston after only registering five starts during his first two seasons with the Celtics. Hopefully the German big man can stay healthy as durability has been an issue for Theis since he entered the NBA from the Bundesliga.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Struggles with foul trouble in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis recorded 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes in Thursday's 141-133 double overtime win over the Clippers.

Theis struggled with foul trouble in the win and was only able to log 24 minutes in a game that gained two extra periods of basketball. However, the center continued to be very efficient from the field and play well on the defensive end. He has now shot over 50 percent in 13 of his last 14 games. For his first tilt following the All-Star break, Theis will face the Wolves next Friday night, who could be without Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist).

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Double-double in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis scored 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and five assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's 112-111 win over the Thunder.

After missing two games due to a minor ankle injury, Theis rejoined the lineup and looked none the worse for wear, collecting his fourth double-double of the season. The third-year big also led the Celtics in assists on the afternoon, but that's not likely to be a feat he'll repeat any time soon. Theis remains a secondary contributor for Boston, but he's scored in double digits the last four times he's received at least 30 minutes of court time, and the fact that the front office didn't bring in a veteran center at the trade deadline counts as a vote of confidence in his abilities and role.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theis (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Theis was considered questionable but was cleared to play after going through a pregame workout. The 27-year-old missed the previous two games with the right ankle sprain, but he's poised to rejoint the starting lineup in Oklahoma City.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Still iffy for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brad Stevens said that Theis (ankle) will go through a pregame workout before the Celtics determine whether the center is fit to play in Sunday's game against the Thunder, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

After being ruled out with a sprained right ankle in advance of both of the past two contests, Theis was upgraded to questionable on the Celtics' injury report for Sunday's contest. Assuming the ankle doesn't hinder him too much in his workout, Theis should slide back into a starting role at center, though he could cede more minutes than usual to backup Enes Kanter. Expect official word on Theis' status to arrive shortly before the 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff.
