Fantasy Basketball Daily News and Notes (12/11/11)

Jeff Green (BOS) – Re-signed with the Celtics.   This doesn’t help his fantasy value at all since he’ll probably shift to backing up Paul Pierce at SF.   The Celtics just brought in Brandon Bass to backup Kevin Garnett at PF.

Brandon Bass (BOS) – Signed with the Celtics and will backup Kevin Garnett at PF.  He’s also got some competition for minutes against the newly acquired Chris Wilcox.  His fantasy value is a little lower in Boston than it was in Orlando although there is a chance that Kevin Garnett might see more time at center, thereby providing more PF minutes for Bass.

Glen Davis (ORL) – Traded to the Magic where he will compete for minutes with Ryan Anderson.  He should have about the same fantasy value in Orlando as he did in Boston, unless Dwight Howard gets traded, then his value might rise.

Fantasy Basketball 2010-2011 Team Preview: Boston Celtics (9/8/10)

Not much has changed with the Celtics this season and they should once again have a playoff spot waiting for them if they can keep everyone healthy.   Rajon Rondo will run the offense with Ray Allen at shooting guard, Paul Pierce at small forward and Kevin Garnett at power forward.   The only change for the Celtics is at center where Kendrick Perkins is out for most of the year with torn knee ligaments.  Boston brought in Jermaine O’Neal to start at center, with Shaquille O’Neal backing him up.  The top four should all put up stats similar to 2009, while Jermaine O’Neal will put up decent numbers in his 30 minutes per night.

Projected Depth Chart
PG – Rajon Rondo, Nate Robinson, Avery Bradley
SG – Ray Allen, Delonte West, Von Wafer
SF – Paul Pierce, Marquis Daniels, Tony Gaffney
PF – Kevin Garnett, Glen Davis, Luke Harangody
C – Jermaine O’Neal, Shaquille O’Neal
