Celtics' JD Davison: Tallies eight assists in win
Davison logged 17 points (6-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes Thursday against Westchester.
Davison failed to connect on an attempt from beyond the arc, but he still led Maine's bench in scoring and tied for the team lead in assists. He turned in a strong regular season, averaging 12.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 8.7 assists through 26 matchups.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Mfiondu Kabengele: Explodes for 29 points
Kabengele registered 29 points (12-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 38 minutes Thursday against Westchester.
Kabengele drilled an impressive 70.6 percent of his attempts from the field and led the team with 16 rebounds. He's been a force on the glass of late, tallying 13 or more boards in each of his last five matchups. Kabengele will finish the 2022-23 regular-season averaging 20.0 points, 10.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists over 27 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Sam Hauser: Will start Sunday sans Tatum
Hauser will start Sunday's game against the Spurs, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Tatum won't play due to a hip injury, so Hauser will draw his first start since Feb. 14 and his fifth of the season. As a starter, the second-year sharpshooter out of Virginia has averaged 15.5 points per game while shooting 48.9 percent from the field and 48.6 percent from deep.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Won't play versus San Antonio
Tatum (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs.
Tatum will miss just his sixth game of the season Sunday. In his absence, Sam Hauser, Grant Williams and Derrick White are candidates for increased roles, but Jaylen Brown will presumably be Boston's go-to playmaker. Tatum's next chance to suit up will come Tuesday in Washington.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Downgraded to out
Pritchard (heel) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, John Karalis of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
Pritchard will miss a ninth straight game due to heel soreness. The backup point guard has appeared in just three games since mid-February, so his prolonged absence shouldn't change the way the Celtics have been playing recently.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Iffy for Sunday
Tatum is questionable for Sunday's game against the Spurs with a left hip contusion, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.
Tatum is at risk of missing his sixth game of the season Sunday as he deals with a bruised left hip. Considering the Spurs are in tank mode, the Celtics could give Tatum a night off. If that were to be the case, Sam Hauser, Grant Williams and Derrick White could see more action, while Jaylen Brown would take the reigns of the offense.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Malcolm Brogdon: Clear of Sunday's injury report
Brogdon isn't listed among the players on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game versus the Spurs.
Brogdon should claim his typical spot as a significant bench piece in the backcourt after being a late scratch Friday due to left low back pain. Over eight March appearances, Brogdon is averaging 12.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 28.1 minutes while converting 42.9 percent of his field-goal attempts and 36.4 percent of his three-point tries....

Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Could be available Sunday
Pritchard (heel) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Spurs.
Pritchard has been out since early March but could make his return Sunday. That said, his presence shouldn't impact the rotation or fantasy much, especially when the rest of Boston's guards are healthy.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Erupts for 34 points
Tatum accumulated 34 points (13-24 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Friday's 120-95 win over the Pacers.
Tatum continued his dominance Friday night with another 30-point scoring performance. He's put up 30-plus points in three of his last four matchups and has contributed across the board over this hot stretch, averaging 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.8 steals.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Sam Hauser: Nails three triples
Hauser supplied nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes during Friday's 120-95 victory over Indiana.
Hauser saw a sizeable uptick in playing time after logging only three minutes Wednesday against the Kings. He made the most of his chances by drilling three of his four chances from beyond the arc. Hauser has shown that he's a threat from downtown, but his playing time is too inconsistent for many fantasy managers to consider rostering him down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Derrick White: Does damage from three
White provided 22 points (7-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, nine assists, one block and one steal over 38 minutes during Friday's 120-95 win over the Pacers.
White scored 15 of his 22 points on the night from downtown and has drilled 10 of his last 19 attempts from deep (two games). He's totaled double figures in nine of his last 11 appearances, averaging 14.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 32.1 minutes over this stretch.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Malcolm Brogdon: Late scratch vs. Pacers
Brogdon is out for Friday's game against the Pacers due to left low back pain.
Brogdon wasn't previously on the injury report, so his absence comes as a surprise. Brogdon has played at least 20 minutes in each of his past 13 appearances, and his absence could lead to more minutes for Derrick White, Marcus Smart, Sam Hauser and Grant Williams.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Officially ruled out
Pritchard (heel) won't play in Friday's game versus the Pacers, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Pritchard has been downgraded from doubtful to out Friday with left heel soreness. His next chance to suit up is Sunday's matchup with the Spurs.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Unlikely to play Friday
Pritchard (heel) is doubtful for Friday's game against Indiana.
Pritchard participated in a live workout Thursday and could return prior to the end of the regular season, but he's unlikely to suit up Friday. However, it's encouraging to see him listed as doubtful rather than being immediately ruled out. Following Friday's matchup, the Celtics have eight games remaining before the end of the regular season, and it's certainly possible Pritchard sees some game action ahead of the playoffs....

Celtics' Payton Pritchard: Gearing up for return
Coach Joe Mazzulla said Pritchard (heel) went through live workout Thursday and may return before the regular season ends, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Pritchard hasn't played since March 6 due to left heel soreness. While Mazzulla's comments are encouraging, they also indicate that the 24-year-old guard is set to miss more time before retaking the court. Derrick White and Malcolm Brogdon should continue to see the majority of the backcourt minutes off the bench with Pritchard out.... See More ... See Less
