Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Solid performance in win
Brown produced 23 points (8-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes during Monday's 104-92 victory over the Pelicans.
Brown tied Jayson Tatum with a team-high eight rebounds and scored 20-plus points for the fifth time in his last six games. On the season, the star wing is averaging 24.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 34.7 minutes per game. When healthy, he's one of the most consistent and reliable players in the league.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Leads Boston to victory
Tatum registered 27 points (9-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-11 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one steal across 38 minutes during Monday's 104-92 win over the Pelicans.
Tatum led the Celtics with a game-high 27 points and tied Jaylen Brown for a team-high eight boards. He's scored at least 20 points in five straight games and is averaging 25.4 points, 10.0 boards and 3.3 assists during that stretch. He'll look to continue his stellar play Wednesday against the Hornets.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Josh Richardson: Struggles with shot
Richardson ended with two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 19 minutes during Monday's 104-92 victory over the Pelicans.
Richardson has scored in double figures just once over his last five games. Even with Marcus Smart (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined, the veteran wing has failed to carve out a substantial role off the bench. He's currently competing with Aaron Nesmith for the top reserve spot behind Dennis Schroder, but Schroder is the likely the only one of the trio that warrants any fantasy consideration, especially when Smart eventually returns to the rotation....

Celtics' Enes Freedom: Grabs five boards in win
Freedom provided two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 23 minutes during Monday's 104-92 win over the Pelicans.
The Celtics were without Robert Williams (personal), but Freedom was still a non-factor offensively. Over his last seven games, the veteran big man has totaled just 15 points, 22 rebounds and three blocks. He's unlikely to warrant any fantasy consideration at any point this season, even in deeper leagues.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Grant Williams: Scores 10 in spot start
Williams produced 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds and two blocks over 25 minutes during Monday's 104-92 victory over New Orleans.
With Robert Williams (personal) unavailable, Grant drew his first start since Jan. 2. He posted a meager stat line, but it was easily his best performance since Dec. 31. The third-year pro is averaging just 7.0 points and 3.2 rebounds across 22.5 minutes this season and doesn't warrant much fantasy consideration, even when the Celtics are without a core player or two....

Celtics' Dennis Schroder: Another solid performance in start
Schroder closed with 23 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 41 minutes during Monday's 104-92 win over the Pelicans.
With Marcus Smart (COVID-19 protocols) still sidelined, Schroder drew his fourth straight start. During that stretch, the veteran point guard is averaging 15.8 points, 5.5 assists and 3.8 rebounds. He continues to be a valuable asset for Boston and has filled in admirably during extended absences to the likes of Smart and Jaylen Brown, but when the Celtics are back to full strength, his production will likely be diminished....

Celtics' Grant Williams: To start Monday
Williams will start Monday's game against the Pelicans, Pelicans broadcaster Erin Summers reports.
With Robert Williams (personal) unavailable, Grant will move back into the starting five for the first time since Jan. 2. The Tennessee product has made a handful of spot starts this season, averaging 11.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.9 threes and 0.8 blocks in those 11 games (30.2 MPG).... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Robert Williams: Sitting out MLK Day game
Williams is listed as out for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to personal reasons.
Boston will be down two key rotation pieces for the start of its four-game week in Williams and Marcus Smart, who remains in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Williams previously missed just one game due to a personal matter in late December, and his absence this time around looks to be related to the impending birth of his child, per Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston. It's thus unclear if Williams will be back for the Celtics' next game Wednesday against the Hornets in Boston, making the 24-year-old a risky fantasy option in weekly leagues, given that the majority of teams are playing four games this week. Look for Al Horford to slide over from power forward to center in Williams' stead Monday, with Grant Williams the most likely candidate to fill the opening in the starting five.... See More ...

Celtics' Sam Hauser: Excellent during G League game
Hauser logged 31 points (10-19 FG, 9-15 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block across 38 minutes during a 98-86 win Saturday against the Charge.
The Boston Celtics sent Hauser to their G League team earlier this month. He has been one of the Maine team's primary contributors since then. Across three G League games, Hauser is averaging 22.3 points -- on a 51.1 field-goal percentage -- and 8.3 rebounds.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Marcus Smart: Out again Monday
Smart (COVID-19 protocols) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pelicans, John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal reports.
Smart remains in the health and safety protocols and will be sidelined for the fourth straight game. Dennis Schroder and Payton Pritchard are likely to continue having increased roles in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Needs 19 shots to get 19 points
Brown provided 19 points (8-19 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and four steals over 36 minutes during Saturday's 114-112 victory over Chicago.
Brown wasn't the most efficient scorer Saturday and missed all five of his three-point shots, but he still delivered a solid stat line due to his versatility. The former California standout saw his streak of games with 20-plus points end at four contests, but he's still averaging 27.3 points per game across eight January appearances.... See More ...

Celtics' Robert Williams: Posts double-double in win
Williams closed with 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and two blocks over 35 minutes during Saturday's 114-112 win over Chicago.
Williams has improved massively as the season has progressed and he's now recorded three double-doubles over his last four contests while also putting up 10 or more points in four of his last five games. He's averaging 9.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game in January.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Posts double-double in win
Tatum notched 23 points (8-24 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 40 minutes during Saturday's 114-112 victory over the Bulls.
Tatum has had quite a few problems in terms of efficiency this season and while that was the case again Saturday -- he needed 24 shots to end up with 23 points -- he extended his streak of games with 20 or more points to four appearances.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Marcus Smart: Still out Saturday
Smart (COVID-19 protocols) is out Saturday against the Bulls.
Smart was placed in the league's health and safety protocols ahead of Friday's game against the 76ers, and he'll be forced to miss another contest Saturday. Dennis Schroder and Payton Pritchard should see increased roles once again.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Romeo Langford: Non-factor in loss
Langford recorded one point (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound, one block and one steal in 16 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the 76ers.
Langford played 16 minutes -- his most since Dec. 29 -- but failed to make an impression on the box score. On the season, the third-year pro is averaging just 4.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per game and doesn't warrant much fantasy consideration, even in deeper leagues.... See More ...

Celtics' Robert Williams: Grabs game-high 14 boards
Williams recorded 12 points (6-8 FG), 14 rebounds, one assist and one block over 31 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the 76ers.
Williams grabbed at least 14 rebounds for the sixth time this season and notched his 12th double-double of the campaign. On the season, the fourth-year pro is averaging 9.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 1.7 assists in 29.2 minutes per game. He's limited in terms of fantasy upside, but he excels at what he does best, which makes him a reliable option in most settings.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Scores 17 points off bench
Pritchard recorded 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and one steal over 24 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the 76ers.
Pritchard led all bench scorers with 17 points and notched his seventh double-digit scoring performance of the season. After a promising rookie campaign, the Oregon product has struggled in his second year, but he's certainly still capable off an occasional offensive outburst. With Marcus Smart (thigh/COVID-19 protocols) likely to return to the lineup soon, Pritchard will once again have to compete with Dennis Schroder as the top guard off the bench.... See More ...
