Daniel Theis
27-Year-Old ForwardF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 27-year-old Theis has proved two things over his first two years in the Association. First, he's an effective big man off the bench, contributing with solid defense, strong rebounding and even decent three-point shooting. Second, he's brittle, having missed 35 games in two seasons due to knee issues and other ailments. With his injury history in mind, don't expect Theis' roughly 14 minutes per game to change much this season, despite the departure of Al Horford and Aron Baynes. Coach Brad Stevens will value Theis' presence, but expect sophomore Robert Williams and French import Vincent Poirier to also plenty of floor time backing up assumed starter Enes Kanter. Plus there is always the outside chance Boston decides to experiment with rookie Tacko Fall at the big league level. For Theis, expect another season of brief spurts of productivity in between absences due to nagging injuries. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Celtics in July of 2019.
Officially re-signs with Celtics

Theis re-signed with the Celtics on Wednesday.
Theis agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract with the Celtics near the start of free agency, though later had his qualifying offer pulled as a financial move on the part of Boston to try to maximize its remaining available cap space. Ultimately, he'll remain with Boston, as expected. Over the past two seasons, he's played a deep bench role at both power forward and center, and he averaged 5.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 13.8 minutes in 2018-19. It's possible he sees slightly more action moving forward with the departures of Al Horford and Marcus Morris.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
