Celtics health report as regular season opener approaches

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via With Wednesday’s regular season opener on the horizon, a handful of Celtics spent Monday’s practice on the mend. Gordon Hayward missed practice sick and Robert Williams continues to progress through the league’s concussion protocol and could be cleared for contact on Tuesday. The team will travel tomorrow to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers and it’s unclear if all members of the team will make the trip. Along with Hayward and Timelord, Tacko Fall is still out after also getting hit in the head at practice. He’ll continue to navigate the...

Celtics waive Kaiser Gates, Yante Maten and Max Strus

Celtics waive Kaiser Gates, Yante Maten and Max Strus

Photo by Jason Miller/ Boston is down to 15 standard and 2 Two-Way contracts The Boston Celtics have waived forwards Kaiser Gates and Yante Maten, and guard Max Strus. Strus was recently a part of roster maneuvering when it became clear that Boston could not risk losing Tacko Fall. The Celtics converted Strus from his Two-Way contract to a partially guaranteed standard contract. Fall was then converted from his Exhibit 10 contract to a Two-Way contract. Strus’ guarantee on his new contract was $415,000. That amount was roughly the equivalent of what Strus could have earned while on his...

Which Celtics rookie will have the best year?

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Romeo Langford, Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards, or (ahem) Tacko Fall? The Celtics draft class is getting rave reviews from those around the team and it is easy to see why. So who do we think is going to be the best of the bunch this season? Romeo Langford was the top pick (in the lottery at that) and was a really highly rated recruit coming out of high school. However, he has struggled with injuries both in college and during Summer League and preseason. He also seems to be in the process of re-tooling his jump shot. He could end up being the best of the...

Javonte Green likely won final Boston Celtics roster spot

Javonte Green likely won final Boston Celtics roster spot

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Green ranked fourth on the Celtics in points, slamming every dunk available and shooting 80% on 20 shots. The Celtics boasted a brutally efficient preseason. Carsen Edwards finished among the best true shooters in the league. Boston won every game, and they can thank the bottom of the roster for sealing games through one of the most intense final roster battles we’ve seen. Javonte Green reportedly emerged from that battle victorious. Despite the Celtics converting Max Strus to a NBA deal in a roster shuffle to retain Tacko Fall, Green will likely...

Who should make the Celtics 15th roster spot?

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports Max Strus, Javonte Green, or other? Preseason basketball has ended and the Celtics now face a decision on rounding out their roster. They made things a lot clearer earlier in the week by converting Tacko Fall to a two-way contract. He’ll join Tremont Waters (who looked great tonight) in Maine for the Red Claws for most of the year (presumably). That seems to leave the decision for the final roster spot between long range bomber Max Strus and high flying dunker Javonte Green. Green started off strong, throwing down dunk after dunk and generally showing...
