Fantasy Impact: Brown is likely just receiving a day off to ensure no set backs occur to the hamstring he injured earlier this year. His status will need to be monitored past Friday to see whether it was just truly a day off or if he suffered a setback and will be out longer.

Marcus Smart scored six points on 2-for-7 shooting with eight assists, two rebounds, two steals and a three-pointer over 32 minutes as the Celtics defeated the Sixers on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Smart only took seven shots as he facilitated the offense more than being a scoring option in the win on Wednesday. The 27-year-old guard continues to contribute in multiple categories and is averaging 10.9 points, 5.8 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 1.4 three-pointers made on the season.

Dennis Schroder scored 13 points on 4-for-12 shooting with three assists, two three-pointers, one rebound and one steal over 30 minutes as the Celtics beat the Sixers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Schroder returned to the lineup after a one-game absence due to a sprained ankle. The 28-year-old guard is averaging 16.9 points, 4.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds over 21 games and is worth rostering in most fantasy formats.

Robert Williams III scored 10 points with four boards and three blocks over 25 minutes as the Celtics defeated the Sixers on Wednesday night.

Al Horford scored 10 points on 4-for-6 shooting with eight rebounds, two three-pointers, one assist, and five blocks across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 88-87 victory over the 76ers.

Fantasy Impact: This is the third time this season that Horford has blocked five or more shots and is averaging a career-high 1.8 swats per game. The veteran big man should be rostered in most fantasy formats.

Josh Richardson scored 18 point on 6-for-11 shooting with one rebound, two assists, one steal, and one block in 27 minutes as the Celtics beat the Raptors on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson returned from a three-game absence due to an illness but did not show any rust with a solid game off the bench. The 28-year-old guard is averaging 9.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists on the season and is only worth rostering in deeper fantasy leagues.

Enes Kanter scored three points on 1-for-5 shooting with eight rebounds across 18 minutes in Friday's 96-88 loss to San Antonio.

Fantasy Impact: After 11 DNPs in the first 13 games of the season, Kanter is finally seeing some playing time. The veteran big man is averaging 4.2 points and 5.2 rebounds over 11.2 minutes and can be left on the waiver wire in standard fantasy leagues.

Romeo Langford scored eight points on 3-for-7 shooting with two rebounds, two three-pointers, and an assist over 23 minutes as the Celtics lost to the Nets on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: On the season, Langford is averaging 4.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.5 steals over 15 games. Unless the third-year forward can see an increased role he can be left on the waiver wire by fantasy managers.

Payton Pritchard scored two points on 1-for-3 shooting over 11 minutes of action on Saturday night as the Celtics lost to the Mavericks by a 107-104 score.

Fantasy Impact: Pritchard has struggled to find playing time this season as the second-year guard is averaging just 2.4 points and 1.3 assists over 11.7 minutes a game. Unless he can find a larger role, Pritchard should be left on the waiver wire.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports the Celtics are trading Kemba Walker, the No. 16 overall pick in the 2021 draft, and a 2025 second-round draft pick to the Thunder in exchange for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Celtics receive some financial flexibility by moving away from the $73 million owed to Walker. Meanwhile, the Thunder now have three first-round picks in this year's draft.

Fantasy Impact: Fournier was a welcome addition at the trade deadline for the Celtics, averaging 13 points per game on 44.8% from the field, including 46.3% from 3-point range. Many teams are expected to be suitors for Fournier's services, who is in the prime of his career at 28 years old.
