Daniel Theis
26-Year-Old ForwardF
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Theis emerged as a meaningful bench contributor in his first NBA season, appearing 63 games and making three starts before a knee injury cut his season short. While Theis wasn't Fantasy-relevant in most formats, he averaged a double-double per 36 minutes and flashed a better-than-expected stroke from beyond the arc. Theis is expected to be fully recovered by the time the regular season rolls around, but with Al Horford and Aron Baynes both back, he'll have a difficult time seeing more than the 14.9 minutes per game he averaged as a rookie. Barring an injury to one of the aforementioned bigs, Theis can be ignored in most Fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Scoreless in brief return
FBoston Celtics
November 12, 2018
Theis (foot) was scoreless (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) over five minutes in the Celtics' 100-94 loss to the Trail Blazers on Sunday but mustered two rebounds.
ANALYSIS
Theis was making his first appearance since Oct. 27, so his playing time was unsurprisingly brief. The 26-year-old is capable of offering some scoring punch off the bench, but he'll presumably need a couple of games to work his way back up to double-digit minutes.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
German power forward Theis is expected to earn a reserve roster spot with the Celtics following the three-for-one deal that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston. The 6’9” star from Brose Bramberg of the Euroleague has the potential to provide some much-needed rebounding and rim-protection for the Celtics. Theis was an important contributor on a team that won three consecutive national titles in Germany in addition to the 2017 German National Cup. In 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 he was a German BBL All-Star Starter and named the Defensive Player of the Year in 2016-17. He was also named the Best National Player in the BBL in 2015-2016. Theis will battle fellow international players Aron Baynes and Guerschon Yabusele for backup power forward minutes. The Irving trade does free up potential minutes for Theis. Expect Coach Brad Stevens to experiment with lineups throughout the season, which might results in both 15-minute games and DNPs for Theis.
