Joel Anthony C DET 1 Month

Anthony finished with four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in seven minutes off the bench during Wednesday's victory over the Orlando Magic.

Anthony has played in only 23 games this season, averaging six minutes per contest. He'll continue having a tough time finding minutes behind the likes of Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, so he'll be irrelevant in all fantasy formats. Unless an injury occurs, he'll continue to play mostly in garbage time at the end of games.

Anthony has seen time on the court in just eight games this season and is averaging 7.1 minutes over those contests.

Anthony is buried on the depth chart under Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe which poses problems for the 32-year-old's playing time this season. Unless injuries become a problem for the Pistons, Anthony will likely be stuck on the pine moving forward.

Anthony has averaged 19 minutes in his first two games with the Pistons, but his playing time figures to take a hit when Greg Monroe returns from a suspension Saturday against the Nets.

Anthony has averaged two points, 4.5 rebounds and one block through his first two games as a Piston. Aside from the absence of Monroe in these first two games, Anthony's playing time was also boosted by Andre Drummond's foul trouble. Once Monroe returns, he would be the Pistons first option to see extra run at center should Drummond continue to rack up fouls at an alarming rate. Anthony will slide back into his expected depth role and see limited action going forward.

Anthony has been traded to the Pistons ESPN reports.

Anthony has been shipped to the Pistons in exchange for guard Will Bynum. Anthony served as a reserve big man for the Celtics, and should carry that role on as he moves to Detroit. He will play behind centers Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and will not have much fantasy value unless one of the aforementioned players gets hurt or traded.

Anthony (groin) has played 30 minutes over the Celtics' past two preseason games.

Anthony dealt with a groin issue to begin the preseason, but was eased back into action last Wednesday by playing eight minutes versus the Knicks. Following that workout, Anthony increased his involvement to 22 minutes in Saturday's second game against New York, putting any injury concerns in the past.

Anthony is dealing with a groin injury that will force him to miss Friday's scrimmage.

The Celtics will be cautious with Anthony's groin injury considering that there's nothing to play for during the practice scrimmage. Even so, the 32-year-old veteran won't see much time on the court this year with the likes of Kelly Olynyk, Tyler Zeller, Vitor Faverani and Jared Sullinger ahead of him on the depth chart.

A source tells that Celtics F/C Joel Anthony will exercise his player option for the 2014/15 season.

It's a no-brainer decision for Anthony as he'll earn a guaranteed $3.8 million next season and then become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2015. He averaged 7.1 minutes per game in 21 appearances for the Celtics this season.

Joel Anthony isn't sure whether he'll exercise his $3.8 million option to stay with the Celtics next season.

That's a much richer deal that Anthony could earn as a free agent, so it would be surprising if he left Boston even though he's not currently part of the rotation. He's a fantasy pariah no matter where he's playing.

Joel Anthony practiced with the Celtics on Thursday.

It is unclear how much the newly-acquired Anthony will play with the struggling Celtics, but he isn't worth fantasy owners' time in anything but the deepest of leagues. The Celtics are in full rebuilding mode and will likely dedicate minutes to developing younger players rather than giving Anthony full run.

The Heat traded Joel Anthony and two draft picks to the Celtics on Wednesday, getting back PG Toney Douglas from the Warriors in exchange.

Anthony was a staple of trade chatter for the Heat, which makes sense since he's barely played for them all season. He has a $3.8 million player option for next season and the Celtics may give him some minutes to see what he has left in the tank, but he's not a viable fantasy option.
