G - BOS
Brad Wanamaker scored 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 28 minutes of play off the bench Monday.
Much of Wanamaker's production came as Boston led comfortably in the second half Monday. He's only considered a fantasy option in the deepest of formats.
Brad Wanamaker scored 15 points (6-8 FG) and grabbed four rebounds in 24 minutes in a win over the Toronto Raptors Friday night.
Wanamaker played well and made the most of his opportunities in the second consecutive blow out win for the Celtics. Playing with a huge lead for much of the game, Wanamaker saw similar minutes to some Celtics starters. He has been productive, but is still a contributor in a crowded back court where his time on the floor depends on match-ups and game flow.
Brad Wanamaker scored 13 points (4-7 FG) and contributed five assists in 20 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
The Celtics held a 19-point lead at half and did not look back, extending their advantage to a final score of 149-115. Wanamaker played 20 minutes in the blowout victory and registered double digits in points for the second time since the restart. Despite a productive game, Wanamaker still has to compete for minutes with the Celtics regulars in the back court, making it difficult to be a consistent force on the offensive end every night.
Brad Wanamaker, in speaking on the Celtics’ chemistry, said, “We all cheer for each other. We all want each other to do well, whether we’re playing the bulk minutes that night or somebody else…So that’s special to have within a team.”
Soon to be free agent, Wanamaker spoke on some of the characteristics that make up this team’s chemistry. With several unknowns and a lot of moving parts, the Celtics more than ever will need to rely on this chemistry to go the distance come late July. Wanamaker is having the best season of his young career as he has improved in every statistical category; he is averaging 19.3 minutes of playing time, 6.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and .8 steals per game. With so many variables impacting how teams will play once inside the “bubble,” coaches may be inclined to use a balanced approach to their rotation to keep their players fresh. If this is the case, Wanamaker could find himself in a position to contribute more to the team and their campaign. Even with that, however, it would be best to take a wait-and-see approach while reserving him for deep-league play.
Brad Wanamaker scored five points on 1-for-2 shooting with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block over 20 minutes on Tuesday night as the Celtics beat the Pacers by a 114-111 score.
Since the All-Star break, Wanamaker has been averaging 6.1 points, 2.3 assists and 1.8 rebounds over 19.3 minutes a game. The 30-year-old guard is not seeing enough playing time to be worth picking up in fantasy by owners.
