F - BOS
Guerschon Yabusele scored four points on 2-for-2 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one block over 11 minutes in Wednesday's 115-102 win over the Timberwolves
Yabusele has been getting into games of late with the Celtics hurting up front with Aron Baynes out and Al Horford on a minutes restriction. But the second year player is not seeing enough time to be worth owning in fantasy leagues.
Coach Brad Stevens said Guerschon Yabusele suffered "bad" ankle sprain and "will be out a while," A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Yabusele has mostly been playing with Maine in the G-League as he is deep on the depth chart for the Celtics. Yabusele really should only be owned by fantasy owners in dynasty formats.
Guerschon Yabusele scored three points on 1-for-3 shooting with three rebounds, one three-pointer and one assist over a career-high 10 minutes in Wednesday's 102-91 win over the Hornets.
Yabusele got to see some playing time with injuries to Jaylen Brown, Marcus Morris and Semi Ojeleye on Wednesday. The rookie big man is a project and will see more time in the G league than in the NBA. He is someone to look at in Dynasty leagues but is not worth owning in any other format.
Guerschon Yabusele has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers. The Celtics are thin at PF with Marcus Morris also out. Jayson Tatum will start at PF with Semi Ojeleye and Daniel Theis picking up a couple minutes. Expect Gordon Hayward to play some four.
Tatum is worth a look in DFS as a cheap flier with Morris out. Hayward also sees a boost with Morris and Yabusele out.
Guerschon Yabusele signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
This is not a complete surprise that the first round draft pick for the Celtics is playing in China. Boston has a limited amount of roster spots available and is looking to stash players overseas. Yabusele will be back over in the NBA probably next season and could make an impact as he made a good impression in summer league.
