  • Woj: Game 2 a possibility for Tyler Herro (hand)
    On Thursday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) could be back in action as soon as Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday. 

    Advice: Herro has already been ruled out for Thursday's series opener in Denver, but it's possible that he'll be cleared for Game 2. While he has been cleared to go through workouts, the key will be whether or not Herro can take contact to his hand. Per Wojnarowski, if Herro isn't cleared for Game 2, the expectation is that he would be healthy enough to play in Game 3 Wednesday night in Miami. Today, 3:29 pm
  • Brad Stevens: 'We want Jaylen Brown to be here'
    During his end-of-season press conference, Celtics team president Brad Stevens stated that the team wants Jaylen Brown to remain a Celtic for the long haul. 

    Advice: While Stevens made it clear that he was not allowed to discuss contract details during the press conference, the desire to keep Brown in Celtics green was evident. "I can say without a doubt that we want Jaylen to be here, and he's a big part of us," Stevens said. "We believe in him, and I'm thankful for him." With Brown earning All-NBA honors, he's eligible for a max contract worth up to $285 million over five seasons. However, the salary cap changes brought about by the new collective bargaining agreement could make it difficult for teams to have two stars on max deals. Jayson Tatum, who also earned max contract eligibility (Boston will have until the fall of 2024 to get something done with him), said after the Celtics' Game 7 loss to Miami he wants Brown re-signed.

  • Aiming to return for Game 2
    Herro (hand) has a possibility of returning for Sunday's Game 2 against the Nuggets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Herro has missed practically the entirety of Miami's playoff run after undergoing right hand surgery due to an injury he suffered in Game 1 of the Milwaukee series. If the 22-year-old guard is unable to return for Game 2, he is expected to suit up for Game 3 barring a setback. Herro started in all 67 of his appearances this season, so he could replace Max Strus or Caleb Martin in the starting lineup upon his return. Today, 12:43 pm
  • May need offseason surgery
    Brogdon said Monday after the Celtics' 103-84 loss to the Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals that he may require offseason surgery to address a partial tendon tear in his right elbow/forearm, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Brogdon reportedly suffered the injury in Game 1 of the series and proceeded to shoot 20 percent from the field while averaging 3.0 points per game in his remaining five appearances against the Heat. He ended up sitting out the Celtics' Game 6 win and was available only in a limited capacity for Game 7, playing just seven minutes. The injury resulted in a disappointing finish to what was a successful season overall for Brogdon, who took home the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year Award after averaging 14.9 points, 4.2 boards, 3.7 assists and 2.0 three-pointers in 26.0 minutes per game over 67 appearances during the regular season. He's on the Celtics' books for two more seasons and carries cap hits of $22.5 million for both years. Today, 11:48 am
  • Spoelstra: Tyler Herro won't play in Game 1 Thurs.
    Erik Spoelstra said on Wednesday that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) won't play in Game 1 against Denver on Thursday.

    Advice: Spo also said that "[Herro's] not there yet" as far as returning. Other reports indicated that Herro is targeting a return in Game 3, which would be the first game of the series in Miami. If the Heat want to complete this miraculous run that they're on, they'll need Herro's offense. Yesterday, 3:41 pm
  • Malcolm Brogdon (right arm) considering surgery
    Malcolm Brogdon (right arm injury) said after Monday's loss to the Heat that he will consider undergoing surgery this summer. 

    Advice: While the Celtics continued to list Brogdon's injury as a strained right forearm, he confirmed media reports that he was dealing with a partially torn tendon. The injury, which was suffered during Game 1 of the conference finals, had a significant impact on Brogdon's shooting and ballhandling abilities. The veteran guard played just eight minutes in Game 5 before being held out of Game 6. And in Game 7, Brogdon played seven ineffective minutes. Possible surgery could impact his availability for the start of next season. From a fantasy standpoint, the move to Boston may have improved Brogdon's chances of winning a title, but his value took a hit. The NBA's Sixth Man of the Year finished the regular season just outside the top 100 in 8- and 9-cat formats, which was in line with his Yahoo ADP of 111.7. Tuesday, 5:31 pm
  • Derrick White (left leg) to undergo MRI Tuesday
    Derrick White will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the left leg injury he suffered during the second half of Monday's Game 7 loss to the Heat. 

    Advice: White was Boston's best player for the first three periods of Monday's season-ending defeat, as Jayson Tatum was hampered by a sprained left ankle and Jaylen Brown struggled with turnovers and poor shooting. Unfortunately for the Celtics, their chances of a late rally were extinguished when White limped back to the locker room after injuring his leg. While it was announced by the team that he was available to return, White did not play another minute. From a fantasy standpoint, the question now is whether or not the issue is bad enough to keep him out for the beginning of next season. Despite a Yahoo ADP of 141.5 in 8-cat, per-game value, White finished the regular season as a 10th-round player (8th-round in 9-cat, per-game value). Tuesday, 5:25 pm
  • Herroic finish? Tyler Herro expected back vs. DEN
    According to Chris Haynes, "Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (hand fracture) is ramping up workouts and is expected to make his return at some point during NBA Finals with Game 3 being the likely target."

    Advice: Herro injured his hand in Game 1 of the first round against Milwaukee, and he hasn't played since. The extended series against Boston bought Herro a little more time, and he's expected to return during the Finals. His availability will likely impact the playing time of guys like Gabe Vincent, Duncan Robinson, Kyle Lowry and Caleb Martin, who have all stepped up in his absence. Monday, 11:31 pm
  • Clock strikes midnight: Brown turns into a pumpkin
    Jaylen Brown finished Monday’s loss to Miami with 19 points on 8-of-23 shooting and added eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, two blocks, a triple and eight turnovers.

    Advice: Brown led the Celtics in scoring, but the point total came from volume rather than efficiency. He was just 1-of-9 from beyond the arc and finished -17 in the final box score. In one of the biggest games of his career, Brown committed the most turnovers he’d ever committed in a regular season or postseason appearance. Jayson Tatum injured his ankle less than 30 seconds into the contest, and Brown picked the wrong moment to completely disappear. Derrick White (18 points on 5-of-12 shooting) did his best to keep Boston in the contest, but the Celtics shot a frigid 9-of-42 from three, and the bench scored 16 points on 16 shots. The blame can’t be squarely placed on Brown in this one, but star players need to deliver in the biggest moments. The Celtics have some major questions this offseason, and there’s a chance we’ve seen the last of Tatum and Brown as teammates. Monday, 10:58 pm
