  • Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Late scratch Wednesday with illness

    Brown has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards due to an illness.

    Brown is a surprising scratch from Wednesday's lineup, but it looks like the 22-year-old caught a bug late in the day that will prevent him from suiting up in Washington. With Brown sidelined Wednesday, the Celtics will likely call upon Marcus Smart to play more minutes as a starter and for Semi Ojeleye to chip in for some additional playing time off the bench.

  • Celtics' Aron Baynes: In starting lineup Wednesday

    Baynes (ankle) will play and start in Wednesday's game against the Wizards but will be on a minutes restriction, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    It's unclear exactly how many minutes Baynes will be limited to Wednesday night, but that should leave both Daniel Theis and rookie Robert Williams some opportunities for quality minutes at center off the bench. Baynes' return after a two-game absence, however, still caps the value of all three players from a fantasy perspective Wednesday in Washington.

  • Celtics' Daniel Theis: To come off bench Wednesday

    Theis will come off the bench Wednesday against the Wizards, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Aron Baynes (ankle), who is on a minutes limit, will start at center while Al Horford (kneecap) deals with an injury of his own. Still, Theis should see significant run. Over the past three games, he's averaging 12.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 23.7 minutes.

  • Celtics' Aron Baynes: Likely to play limited minutes

    Baynes (ankle), according to coach Brad Stevens, appears able to play limited minutes Wednesday against the Wizards, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.

    Baynes' presence is needed with Al Horford (knee) out, and it seems he'll be able to get on the floor. That said, Baynes hasn't officially been cleared to play and his status may be updated closer to tipoff.

  • Celtics' Aron Baynes: Status shaky for Wednesday

    Coach Brad Stevens labeled Baynes (ankle) as "questionable at best" for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Though the questionable tag theoretically gives Baynes a 50-50 shot of playing, Stevens' comments suggest the big man's odds of suiting up are probably lower. In the event Baynes misses a third straight game with the sprained left ankle, the Celtics would be forced to lean on Daniel Theis and Robert Williams as their primary centers again with Stevens already ruling starter Al Horford (kneecap) out for the contest.

  • Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Won't play Wednesday

    Hayward (illness) is out Wednesday against the Wizards, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Hayward will miss a second straight game while dealing with an illness. Jayson Tatum has benefited from Hayward's three other absences, averaging 40.9 fantasy points when Hayward is out. Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart figure to see upticks in workload as well.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Will miss more time

    Coach Brad Stevens said that Horford won't play Wednesday against the Wizards and will likely miss "at least a few games" while dealing with Patellofemoral pain syndrome in his left knee.

    Horford has already missed two games while dealing with tendinitis in the kneecap and can probably be penciled in to sit out at least two more contests based on Stevens' comments. The Celtics are hopeful that the time off for rest will prove beneficial for Horford in strengthening the knee and ensuring it's not a recurring issue for him throughout the 2018-19 campaign. Per Jay King of The Athletic, Stevens also relayed that Horford's top backup, Aron Baynes (ankle), is "at the very best questionable" for Wednesday, so Daniel Theis looks poised to earn a third straight start at center.

  • Celtics' Aron Baynes: Questionable vs. Wizards

    Baynes (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Baynes has missed the last two games while dealing with a sprained left ankle, and with Al Horford nursing a knee injury, Daniel Theis and rookie Robert Williams have been holding things down at the center position for the last couple of outings. The Celtics should provide an update on Baynes' status for Wednesday following shootaround in the morning.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Questionable for Wednesday

    Horford (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Horford has missed the last two games with the lingering injury, which coach Brad Stevens labeled Monday as patellar tendinitis. His status should be updated again following Boston's shootaround in the morning, but with Horford and fellow big man Aron Baynes (ankle) currently questionable, Daniel Theis and rookie Robert Williams could be holding down the center position again Wednesday in Washington.

  • Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Doubtful again Wednesday

    Hayward (illness) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    After being sidelined for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to an illness, Hayward is on track to miss his second straight contest. Semi Ojeleye saw extended minutes off the bench in Hayward's absence Monday, and should Hayward be ruled out as expected Wednesday, Ojeleye would be in line for a similar workload in Washington.

  • Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Not on injury report for Wednesday

    Irving (shoulder) is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Irving was held out of Monday's game against the Pelicans while nursing a minor shoulder injury, but it looks like the solo day off was all the point guard needed. With Irving in line to return Wednesday, Terry Rozier, who played 32 minutes as a starter in his absence, will return to his regular role off the bench in Washington.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Scores 21 points in Monday's win

    Tatum collected 21 points (10-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, and one block in 33 minutes during Monday's 113-100 win over the Pelicans.

    Tatum was extremely efficient despite struggling from beyond the arc and failing to earn a single trip to the charity stripe. The absences of Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and Al Horford (knee) pushed Tatum to be aggressive offensively and the sophomore answered the call by scoring 20-plus points for the 10th time this season.
