Top Luke Kornet News

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: All-around performance off bench

    Kornet finished Sunday's 120-114 win over the Hawks with 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

    Kornet played a season-high minute total off the bench in Sunday's win while setting a season-high assist mark. Kornet has surpassed the double-digit scoring total eight times this season. However, his role should decrease during the postseason as long as Al Horford (back) and Robert Williams (knee) are on the court.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Scores eight in garbage time

    Kornet posted eight points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across nine minutes in Tuesday's 130-111 loss in Washington.

    Most of Kornet's minutes came during the fourth quarter, when the victory for the Wizards was well in hand. That said, Kornet made the most of his opportunity. Tuesday marked the 13th time The Green Kornet has scored eight or more points this season. His depth chart status versus Mike Muscala is still murky. Continue to expect small minutes for Kornet for the rest of the season.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Crashes glass in Monday's loss

    Kornet chipped in four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes during Monday's 118-114 overtime loss to Cleveland.

    The journeyman center tied his season high in rebounds while seeing double-digit minutes for only the fourth time in 11 games since the beginning of February, a stretch in which he also got four DNPs. Kornet's lack of a consistent role off the Boston bench makes him tough to roster in any fantasy format, but with Robert Williams (hamstring) and Al Horford (back) both banged up at the moment, he could have some appeal as a bargain DFS option in the right matchup.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Available vs. 76ers

    Kornet (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Keith Smith of reports.

    Kornet could see extra time Wednesday, as Al Horford (knee) and Robert Williams (ankle) are both questionable. Since the calendar flipped to 2023, Kornet has averaged 3.9 points and 2.2 rebounds across 10.4 minutes.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Probable for Wednesday

    Kornet (ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup with the 76ers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Kornet skipped Monday's win over the Pistons due to the ankle issue, but he appears to be on track to return to the floor for Wednesday's game. However, he typically only logs minutes in the teens, which isn't enough floor time to produce a meaningful stat line in fantasy hoops.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Downgraded to out

    Kornet (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Pistons

    Kornet will miss at least one contest due to the left ankle sprain he suffered in Friday's matchup with the Suns. In his absence, Sam Hauser and Blake Griffin will be candidates for increased playing time, though Grant Williams figures to be the primary backup to both Robert Williams and Al Horford during Monday's contest.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Questionable for Monday

    Kornet (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game at Detroit.

    Kornet suffered the ankle sprain during Friday's matchup with the Suns, and his availability for Monday remains up in the air. The 27-year-old has averaged 12.0 minutes over the past five games and will likely see similarly playing time if cleared to take the court against the Pistons.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Questionable to return

    The Celtics announced that Kornet is questionable to return Friday against the Suns with a left ankle sprain.

    Kornet's night was likely done anyway considering this was announced in the fourth quarter. If Kornet's ankle injury lingers beyond Friday, the Celtics will likely turn more to Grant Williams in smaller lineups.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Does not return Friday

    Kornet did not return to Friday's game against the Suns due to his left ankle sprain.

    The Celtics have not provided an update yet, but the good news is that the next game isn't until Monday. If Kornet misses that one, we could see the Celtics use smaller lineups with Grant Williams benefitting.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Surprises off bench

    Kornet provided 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 19 minutes during Wednesday's 139-96 win over the Nets.

    Kornet reached double digits in points for the sixth time this season, as he was able to take advantage of some garbage time with Boston running away with this one early. Robert Williams was back from his ankle injury Wednesday night and needed to play only 19 minutes, so it's safe to say this game will be an outlier for Kornet.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Tallies 11 points in win

    Kornet racked up 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist over 17 minutes during Thursday's 109-98 victory over the Nets.

    Kornet played 17 minutes for a second consecutive game Thursday and scored in double figures for just the fifth time this season. The 27-year-old has been an inconsistent contributor this year but has seen an uptick in playing time over the last two matchups since Robert Williams missed Wednesday's game against the Pelicans due to a knee injury before Al Horford was sidelined Thursday for rest purposes.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Posts 11 points in win

    Kornet closed with 11 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and one block across 16 minutes during Monday's 116-110 road win over the Raptors.

    The Celtics stuck with an eight-man rotation during the victory, with the Green Kornet earning 16 minutes of run. The Kornish Game Hen delivered his signature "Kornet Contest," disorienting numerous Raptors. The Vandy product has now appeared in seven straight games for Boston and averaged 6.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks over that span.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Nudges double-double in win

    Kornet had nine points (4-4 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and one block over 18 minutes during Monday's 140-105 victory over the Hornets.

    Kornet was one of a number of fringe players who saw an increase in playing time Monday, slotting in as the game descended into garbage time. While Kornet does have a somewhat intriguing fantasy game, his role is typically reliant on the production of others as well as the nature of the game itself. Outside of some periodic streaming appeal, he can safely be left on the wire in most formats.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Strong rebounding performance

    Kornet ended with eight points (4-8 FG), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 13 minutes during Friday's 131-112 victory over Denver.

    Kornet put together an efficient night from the field and also set a new season best with seven boards. The big man has logged 18 and 13 minutes, respectively, in his last two contests since returning to the team, and while he certainly hasn't been dominant in any one category, he could add rebounding value for fantasy managers in deeper leagues.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Officially available Wednesday

    Kornet (personal) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Kornet wasn't on the injury report revealed Tuesday, which suggested he would be part of the mix. Head coach Joe Mazzulla confirmed that to be the case Wednesday, so look for the big man to potentially see some spare minutes in a frontcourt depth role.
