Celtics' Jabari Bird: Added to active NBA roster Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird, who is on a two-way contract, has been called up to the Celtics' active NBA roster in the wake of Gordon Hayward's (ankle) injury, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

Bird can only spend up to 45 days at the NBA level, so the team will seemingly be using him as a stop-gap while they attempt to find another player to replace Hayward. That said, it seems doubtful Bird will see significant run.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart will draw the start for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Celtics analyst Sean Grande reports.

In the wake of Gordon Hayward's (ankle) injury, coach Brad Stevens has opted to insert Marcus Smart into the starting five next to Kyrie Irving and Jaylen Brown. He saw 35 minutes Tuesday and may need to continue hovering around that mark considering the team lost much of their depth over the offseason in favor of a more top-heavy roster.

Celtics' Guerschon Yabusele: Participates in warmups Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yabusele (illness) participated in warmups prior to Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

Yabusele missed Tuesday's season opener against the Cavaliers. He should still be considered questionable for Wednesday's game until further notice, but the fact that he's out on the floor warming up is a good sign for his availability. With Gordon Hayward (ankle) out indefinitely, coach Brad Stevens will probably have to get a little creative with his rotation, which could result in Yabusele seeing some run.

Celtics' Terry Rozier: Impresses in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rozier tallied nine points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four steals, three rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 102-99 loss to the Cavaliers.

Rozier was productive against Cleveland, and saw some additional court time after Gordon Hayward (ankle) left the game. He was likely going to be part of the rotation, playing primarily behind Kyrie Irving. However, he is now a chance to see more minutes, as they shuffle their rotations. He was very aggressive on both ends of the floor, and harassed the Cleveland guards, collecting four steals. Rozier is worth a look in deeper leagues if you need a point guard with steals upside.

Celtics' Semi Ojeleye: Surprisingly sees the floor in Celtics' season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ojeleye was held scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and failed to collect any other stats during his surprising nine minutes of floor time in Tuesday's 102-99 season opening loss in Cleveland.

Gordon Hayward's horrific leg injury forced Boston to experiment with some unusual lineups, which included nine minutes of surprising floor time for the second-round rookie Ojeleye. The 6-7 wing drained 2.1 treys per game during his junior year at SMU. Boston is hoping he can provide similar outside shooting and tough defense off the bench. With Hayward likely out for the season, Ojeleye will receive a few more opportunities to prove he deserves to stay in The Association.
