C - CLE
Tacko Fall scored six points on 3-for-3 shooting with five rebounds and one block over eight minutes as the Celtics beat the Magic on Friday night.
With the game being a blowout on Friday, Fall got some extra time on the court. He could continue to see action with Rob Williams and Jason Tatum out with COVID but won't see enough minutes to be worth grabbing in standard fantasy formats.
Tacko Fall scored four points on 2-for-3 shooting with eight rebounds and three blocks in 19 minutes as the Celtics defeated the Wizards on Friday night.
With fellow big men Tristan Thompson (medical protocols), Grant Williams (medical protocols) and Robert Williams (COVID-19) are all under quarantine for the next week look for Fall to see an increase of playing time. The second-year center won't see enough minutes to be worth owning in all fantasy leagues but owners needing rebounds and blocks in deeper formats may want to grab Fall.

A towering front court presence, the former second-round pick will need to polish his game in order to be a consistent fantasy contributor.
The Boston Celtics have extended a qualifying offer to C Tacko Fall, making him a restricted free agent.
Fall will now hit free agency on Friday as a restricted free agent, meaning he will be free to sign an offer sheet with any team but Boston will have the opportunity to match the offer. The 7'5 big-man spent the 2020 season as a two-way player for the Celtics, averaging a mere 3.3 points and 2.1 rebounds per game in seven total games.
Tacko Fall scored two points as he made his only field goal over three minutes on Saturday night as the Celtics beat the Sixers by a 116-95 score.
The 24-year-old has been with the Maine Red Claws in the G-League most of the season but was recalled to the Celtics with the team dealing with injuries. The rookie big man has a long way to go before he makes an impact in the NBA and is only worth stashing in deeper dynasty leagues by fantasy owners.
