Top Celtics News

  • Celtics' Blake Griffin: Comes close to double-double

    Griffin registered 13 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Monday's 116-110 win over the Raptors.

    Griffin got the start Monday due to the absence of Al Horford (back) and made the most of the opportunity, ending just two rebounds shy from posting a double-double and looking extremely efficient on offense. Horford is fully entrenched as the Celtics' starting center, however, and the only way Griffin would have some fantasy value is if he's forced to start several games in a row. Expect Griffin to be in contention for a start Wednesday at Phoenix if Horford can't recover from the low back stiffness that forced him out Monday.

  • Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Sniffs triple-double in win

    Brown closed Monday's 116-110 victory over the Raptors with 22 points (9-22 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and eight assists in 39 minutes.

    Brown looked active on both ends of the court, and while he couldn't extend his double-double streak, it's worth noting that he ended just two boards and two assists shy from reaching a triple-double. Brown has also been remarkably consistent on offense, scoring at least 20 points in all but one appearance since the beginning of November.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Fourth straight double-double

    Tatum supplied 31 points (11-24 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 39 minutes during Monday's 116-110 victory over Toronto.

    It's not a surprise to see Tatum carrying the Celtics on offense, but he has been making a significant effort on the glass of late. He's now pulled down 10 or more rebounds in four straight contests for the first time since the beginning of the 2021-22 campaign. The former Duke star has recorded six double-doubles over his last 10 outings and is averaging 29.1 points with 9.6 rebounds per game during that span.

  • Celtics' Mfiondu Kabengele: Strong all-around showing

    Kabengele registered 15 points (7-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes Sunday against the Skyhawks.

    Kabengele couldn't get his shot working from beyond the arc, but he managed to extend his streak of double-digit scoring performances to nine contests. He also just narrowly missed securing back-to-back double-doubles, as he needed just one more board to finish with 10.

  • Celtics' Derrick White: Starting Monday

    Updating a previous report, White is starting Monday's contest against Toronto, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    After initially being reported that White will be coming off the bench, the veteran guard will in fact remain in Boston's starting lineup Monday. White has started each of the Celtics' past seven contests, averaging 12.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.1 blocks over 26.6 minutes per game over that span.

  • Celtics' Derrick White: Coming off bench Monday

    White isn't starting Monday against the Raptors.

    White had started his team's last seven contests, but the team has elected to change up the starting five Monday night. Marcus Smart returns to the starting lineup following a brief absence, and Grant Williams will run with the first unit as the Celtics roll out a bigger first unit.

  • Celtics' Blake Griffin: Starting Monday

    Griffin will start Monday's contest against Toronto, Celtics play-by-play voice Sean Grande reports.

    With Al Horford (back) out of the lineup, Griffin will make his fourth start of the season. In his previous first three starts, Griffin has averaged 7.7 points and 3.7 rebounds across 19.7 minutes per game. The Celtics are playing on the second night of a back-to-back, so chances are this will just be a one-game cameo for Griffin. Expect Horford to return to the starting five for Wednesday's showdown with the Suns in Phoenix.

  • Celtics' Malcolm Brogdon: Ruled out Monday

    Brogdon (illness) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Raptors.

    Brogdon was added to the Celtics' injury report Monday morning due to a non-COVID illness, and he'll be unable to suit up against Toronto. Payton Pritchard will likely see increased playing time, while Brogdon's next chance to suit up will be Wednesday against Phoenix.

  • Celtics' Al Horford: Unavailable Monday

    Horford has been ruled out for Monday's game against Toronto due to low back stiffness.

    Horford has been held to single-digit scoring totals in the last three matchups, and he averaged 4.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 33.3 minutes per game during that time. His absence should lead to increased playing time for Blake Griffin and Luke Kornet.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Off injury report

    Smart (hip) will be available for Monday's game against Toronto, John Karalis of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

    Smart sat out Boston's most recent contest due to a left hip bruise but is off the injury report ahead of Monday's meeting with the Raptors. He'll presumably return to his starting point guard role and could see more action if Malcolm Brogdon (illness) sits, though Payton Pritchard would likely be the primary beneficiary of Brogdon's potential absence.

  • Celtics' Malcolm Brogdon: Dealing with illness

    Brogdon is questionable for Monday's matchup against Toronto due to an illness.

    Brogdon landed on the injury report Monday morning with an illness and is in jeopardy of missing his fifth game of the season. If he's sidelined, Payton Pritchard would presumably be the primary beneficiary.

  • Celtics' Malcolm Brogdon: Strong all-around game in win

    Brogdon provided 13 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 win over the Nets.

    While Brogdon didn't shoot particularly well Sunday, he helped out his team in other ways by securing eight rebounds and dishing out eight assists. It was the first time all season that he recorded more than six assists and just the second time he grabbed more than six boards. His added productivity may have been a result of an increase in minutes, as Sunday was the first time he exceeded 30 minutes of playing time in a game this year.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Big fourth quarter Sunday

    Tatum chipped in 29 points (10-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 11 rebounds, four steals and one assist across 37 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 win over the Nets.

    Tatum and Jaylen Brown combined for 63 of Boston's 103 points Sunday. The former's biggest offensive contribution came in the fourth quarter, as he scored 12 points and made four of his six shot attempts. He now has three straight double-doubles and 11 in 23 games this season.

  • Celtics' Grant Williams: Scores 10 points in start

    Williams ended with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and three steals over 36 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 win over the Nets.

    Williams scored seven of his 10 points in nine first-quarter minutes but took just three shots over the final three periods. It was the 11th time in 23 games that he's appeared in the starting lineup for Boston. For the season, the 24-year-old has made 53.6 percent of his shots and 46.0 percent of his threes and is averaging 9.2 points per contest.

  • Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Second straight double-double

    Brown finished with 34 points (10-20 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 10 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and two steals over 40 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 victory over the Nets.

    Brown recorded his second straight double-double, doing so while getting off to a fast start by making all five of his three-point attempts en route to a 20-point first quarter. The production in the defensive categories were an added bonus from Brown, who had failed to record a steal or block in his previous three outings.

  • Celtics' Grant Williams: Starting Sunday

    Williams will start Sunday's matchup against the Nets, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    With Marcus Smart (hip) out, Williams will enter the starting lineup. Across his previous 10 starts, the reserve big man has averaged 10.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 31.6 minutes per game.
