Fantasy Impact: Brown missed the Celtics' previous game against the Washington Wizards due to left knee soreness but will return for Tuesday's marquee matchup against the Clippers. Brown missed the team's last meeting against the Clippers and will look to make an impact on both ends of the court, as the Celtics SG/SF is capable of scoring 20+ points on any given night and is a sound defender. Fantasy managers can roll Brown out as a solid Utility play in DFS contests on Tuesday, as he is priced at $8,400 on FanDuel.

Javonte Green scored eight points on 4-for-5 shooting Sunday night, to go with two rebounds and two assists over 33 minutes in the Celtics win over the Wizards.

Fantasy Impact: Green picked up the start for Jaylen Brown on Sunday, but he didn’t do much with the opportunity. Overall the 27-year-old guard is averaging 4.8 points and 2.3 rebounds over 22 games on the season and is not worth owning in fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: Ojeleye picked up a DNP in his last game on Friday but was back in action on Sunday. The 26-year-old forward is averaging 5.7 points and 3.0 rebounds over 32 games on the season and can be left on the waiver wire by fantasy owners.

Fantasy Impact: Pritchard has been struggling offensively over his last eight games with 4.9 points on 32.0% shooting. The rookie guard is still seeing plenty of minutes off the bench and should turn things around and is worth owning in deeper fantasy formats.

Fantasy Impact: Nesmith has found a home in the rotation for the Celtics and over the last seven games is averaging 6.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 three-pointers made over 22 minutes. The rookie is worth stashing in dynasty formats but is not worth owning in standard or 12 team leagues.
