2023 Fantasy Outlook
The departure of Grant Williams to the Mavericks creates the opportunity, slightly, for Hauser to see more playing time for the Celtics. The wing appeared in 80 games for Boston last year, his second year with the club. At 16.1 minutes per contest, Hauser proved his G League days were behind him. The three-point specialist shot a blistering 41.8 percent from behind the arc and demonstrated improved defensive abilities. Despite his 6-foot-8 frame, he was undersized during his occasional stints at power forward. Big minutes for new teammate Kristaps Porzingis should limit Hauser to just wing duties. He's behind Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Lamar Stevens and probably Oshae Brissett on the wing pecking order, but again has a chance to play in 75-plus games, if healthy. The 25-year-old will need a few injuries on the depth chart to exceed last year's minutes per game. Fantasy-wise, Hauser will provide a boost in three-pointers, but little else, for teams in very deep leagues. Otherwise, he's waiver-wire fodder. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Conducive playstyle
FBoston Celtics
August 22, 2023
Hauser's shooting abilities will likely unlock a larger role in Boston's revamped rotation, writes Jay King of The Athletic.
ANALYSIS
Hauser's fit with Boston and coach Joe Mazzulla's style shows in the numbers, with Weiss noting "the Celtics attempted about four more three-pointers per 48 minutes with Hauser on the court last season." Grant Williams departing to Dallas opens a sizable rotation role that Hauser can help fill.
See All NBA Rumors
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Hauser has two seasons to prove he's worthy of an NBA rotational spot. As a 24-year-old rookie last season, the Virginia product appeared in 26 games for the Celtics and 13 games for the G League Maine Celtics. With Maine, Hauser averaged a promising 20.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.4 made three-pointers over 35 minutes per G League contest. With Boston, Hauser only earned a meager 6.1 minutes per game, usually in mop-up time. On 44 NBA three-point attempts, Hauser drained 43.2 percent. The production was enough for the Celtics to sign Hauser to a small two-year deal this summer. The 6-foot-8 sharpshooter will need a few injuries to receive meaningful playing time on this deep roster, and coach Ime Udoka showed last season that he prefers shorter rotations. Expect modest minutes for Hauser, with the occasional visit to Maine to stay sharp.
