Kristaps Porzingis News
There's optimism that Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis (calf) will return this week. Porzingis remains out for Monday's In-Season Tournament quarterfinals versus the Indiana Pacers, but there's increasing confidence that he'd be available for a potential semifinals round on Thursday if the Celtics advance. Porzingis, a notoriously slow healer, will have missed four games due to a left calf strain after Monday. But fantasy managers hope that Boston takes care of business against Indy, otherwise the Celts don't have another game officially scheduled until Dec. 12 vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers at this juncture. An early-round fantasy stud when healthy, the oft-injured 28-year-old All-Star is averaging 18.9 points, 1.7 blocks, and 1.6 treys in Beantown. Manning the middle in KP's stead, Al Horford is a must-roster asset with averages of 14.0 points, 9.5 boards, 3.8 assists, and 3.0 swats in 30.7 minutes covering four starts sans Porzingis this year.
Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis (calf) is set to miss his fourth consecutive game with a left calf strain after he was officially ruled out of the team's knockout game for the in-season tournament on Monday. Fortunately for the Celtics, they're on a three-game win streak while Porzingis has been out. There isn't a firm timetable for his return yet, so Al Horford will continue to get the starting role while Neemias Queta and Luke Kornet will get the added minutes off of the bench.
Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis (calf) will miss a third consecutive game with a left calf strain as he's officially been ruled out for the division-rivalry game against the Philadelphia 76ers. We're approaching the one-week mark when the team said he would be re-evaluated and he's been able to do a bit of work at practice, but still has the calf wrapped right now. In his place, Al Horford will remain in the starting lineup while Luke Kornet will see more backup minutes.
Boston Celtics forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (calf) won't play in Tuesday's in-season tournament meeting with the Chicago Bulls. The veteran injured his calf during Friday's matchup against the Orlando Magic and didn't return. He also sat out Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks, opening the door for Al Horford to remain in the starting lineup. Horford logged 32 minutes in that one, finishing with 15 rebounds, six points, two blocks, and one steal. As a result, Horford deserves consideration in all fantasy setups, even more so if Jrue Holiday (ankle) is ruled out. On the other hand, Sam Hauser would emerge as a viable fantasy option in deep formats.
