F - BOS
Luke Kornet scored 12 points on 6-for-10 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and four blocks in 31 minutes during Saturday's win over the Timberwolves.
With fellow bigs, Tristan Thompson and Robert Williams out, Kornet picked up some extra minutes. Both Williams and Thompson will be out again on Sunday which makes Kornet a good play in DFS.
Luke Kornet scored two points on 1-for-2 shooting with two rebounds over 10 minutes as the Celtics lost to the Bulls on Monday by a 102-96 score.
Since being acquired from the Bulls in March, Kornet is averaging 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds over nine games played with four DNPs. Unless the 25-year-old center can find a consistent role, he can be left on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues.
Luke Kornet scored eight points on 3-for-5 shooting with five rebounds, two three-pointers, and one assist over 13 minutes on Saturday night as the Celtics beat the Thunder by a 111-94 score.
Kornet was traded from the Bulls to the Celtics at the trade deadline on Thursday. The 25-year-old center saw some playing time on Saturday with the team picking up a big lead but on most nights will have a hard time finding minutes.
Luke Kornet will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks due to a foot and ankle injury.
Kornet is towards the back-half of the bench so his absence will not create too much of a boost for his teammates. The biggest beneficiaries would likely be Thaddeous Young - who is currently the starter with Lauri Markkanen still out with a pelvis injury - Daniel Gafford and possibly Cristiano Felicio. Felicio has only appeared in 19 games this season so we will have to see how him and Gafford will rotate. Gafford will likely be favored of the two. If Young is still out on waivers, he may get enough minutes to warrant temporary ownership in season-long leagues.
Luke Kornet punched in eight points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and seven rebounds over 24 minutes in Tuesday's 126-114 loss to the Wizards.
In the wake of injuries to Wendell Carter Jr. and Daniel Gafford the Bulls have been forced to dig deep into the bench and Kornet got his 13th consecutive start. In Tuesday's matchup, the Wizards were crushing the Bulls on the glass so coach Jim Boylen turned to the big-bodied Cristiano Felicio in an attempt to clog up the paint. Over the 13-game opportunity as a starter the Kornet has only hit the 20-point mark once and the 7'2" center failed to record double-digit rebounds in a single contest. Gafford was listed as probably for Tuesday's matchup and although he was unable to suit up, he should be back in the lineup as the team's starter for Thursday's matchup against the Hornets and Kornet's relevance in fantasy will be completely extinguished.
