Avery Bradley    G  Celtics

 

 

Avery Bradley, one of the NBA's most underrated players, is also one of the leading candidates for this season's Most Improved Player award. Bradley is averaging career-highs in multiple categories this season, including scoring (16.9 points per game), rebounds (6.2), assists (2.3) and 3-pointers (2.1). Avery's monstrous jump up in rebound rate is the most startling. He averaged 2.9 boards in 33.4 minutes per game last season. In 2016-17, he is averaging 6.2 rebounds in 33.2 minutes per game.

Al Horford    F/C  Celtics

 

 

Al Horford scored 16 points with nine rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal vs. the Wizards on Monday. He finished 6-of-11 from the field, but only managed to hit 4-of-7 from the line. Horford scored a season-high 27 points in his previous outing and is averaging 17.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.2 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.0 triples over his last five games. He's been underwhelming for most of the season, but at least he's stepping up in a big way during the fantasy playoffs.

Avery Bradley    G  Celtics

 

 

Avery Bradley scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting in Monday's win over the Wizards. He was everywhere tonight, racking up nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and four triples in 34 minutes. Bradley had his minute restrictions lifted on Mar. 12 and he's played 32+ minutes in four straight games since then. He's finally healthy and is peaking at the perfect time for his fantasy owners. The Celtics have three more games this week, so his owners should be in good shape.

Isaiah Thomas    G  Celtics

 

 

Isaiah Thomas (knee) returned from a two-game absence and scored 25 points in a 110-102 win over the Wizards on Monday, adding four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two triples. He admitted that his knee isn't 100 percent, but there was no doubt that he would play. "I can’t sit this one out," Thomas said before the game. "I know what’s at stake, I know it’s a big game for us." The Celtics now have a 2.5 game cushion over the Wizards for second place in the East, and they only trail the Cavaliers by 2.0 games. It's possible IT4 could get another DNP-rest down the stretch, but the good news for his fantasy owners is that the Celtics play three more times this week.

Marcus Smart    G  Celtics

 

 

Marcus Smart returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Wizards, scoring 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting in 20 minutes. The Celtics are whole again with Isaiah Thomas (knee) returning to action, so Smart's value is going to trend down. He added just two rebounds, two assists and one block, and considering he's shooting 32.7 percent from the field over his last five games, you can probably find a better option on your wire with so many hot pickups available this time of year.

Isaiah Thomas    G  Celtics

 

 

Isaiah Thomas (knee) will play Monday vs. Washington. Thomas was a full participant during shootaround, and head coach Brad Steven said that Thomas will not have a minutes restriction following his two-game stint on the sidelines, so he's safe to deploy in all settings. Marcus Smart should return to the bench with IT4 active, and his value will take a decent sized hit with the return to the second unit.

Jae Crowder    F  Celtics

 

 

Crowder produced 15 points (3-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes in Sunday's 105-99 loss at Philadelphia.
