F - BOS
Daniel Theis chipped in five points, nine rebounds, four blocks, and two assists during his 19 minutes in his Celtics debut.
On Tuesday, Theis stepped in for his Celtics debut logging five points, nine boards, and four swats across only 19 minutes. With Robert Williams out of the lineup and Al Horford getting in foul trouble during the first quarter, Theis was able to chip in early for the team. Despite his solid production in limited minutes, Theis is not worth an add in any format.
According to Jay King, Daniel Theis expected to play around 15-20 minutes Tuesday in his Celtics season debut, per coach Udoka.
After a two-game absence from the team due to the trade, Theiss will finally join the Celtics on Tuesday and is available to play. With Robert Williams out of the lineup, Grant Williams will slide in and Theiss is projected to play around 15-20 minutes.
According to Jared Weiss, Daniel Theis is listed as available to make his Celtics debut on Tuesday
After being acquired in a trade shortly last Thursday, Theis will join the team on Tuesday before they suit up against the 76ers. It's unclear his role with the team but head coach Ime Udoka was quoted as saying the team will try to mix him into some big man heavy lineups alongside Horford and Williams.
The Boston Celtics are trading Dennis Schroder, Enes Freedom and Bruno Fernando to Houston in exchange for Daniel Theis.
Theis makes his return to Boston. It is possible he takes some minutes away from Robert Williams, but he still holds no real fantasy basketball value.
Daniel Theis registered 22 points (8-12 FG, 2-4 3PT, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocks in the Rockets’ 116-103 loss to the Knicks on Thursday.
Theis recorded his second double-double of the season in a tough matchup against the Knicks. The veteran center shot 67% from the floor and played 32 minutes on Thursday due to a Christian Wood injury. Expect Theis to return back to 15-18 minutes of playing time when the Rockets play the Pistons on Saturday.
