Celtics' Daniel Theis: Comes to life

Theis totaled 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one block over 11 minutes during Wednesday's 110-107 loss to Milwaukee. With Robert Williams out again, Theis logged 11 minutes for a second consecutive contest. After going scoreless Monday, Theis was able to provide an extremely effective offensive boost for Boston. The 30-year-old logged a healthy plus-seven during his time on the floor.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Perfect from field in Game 5

Theis totaled 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one block over 11 minutes during Wednesday's 110-107 loss to Milwaukee in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals round. With Robert Williams (knee) out for a second straight game, Theis once again captured a minor rotation role. After...

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Back to bench

Theis will come off the bench during Sunday's Game 1 matchup against the Bucks, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Efficient performance in win

Theis provided 15 points (7-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 win over Brooklyn. After a poor shooting night in Game 1, Theis bounced back with an efficient performance Wednesday en route to his seventh double-digit scoring outing over his last nine games. During that stretch, the German big man has averaged 12.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 27.8 minutes per game. As long as Robert Williams (knee) remains sidelined, Theis figures to be an important piece of Boston's rotation.

Rockets 2021-2022 season in review: Daniel Theis and Armoni Brooks

Theis came aboard the Houston Rockets in the offseason as a more defensive-minded replacement for the departed Kelly Olynyk when the Chicago Bulls sent him over in a sign and trade on a four-year, $36 million deal, and the Rockets started off the season running a two-big lineup with Theis at center and Christian Wood at power forward.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Meager production in Game 1 win

Theis posted four points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one steal over 20 minutes in Sunday's 115-114 Game 1 win over the Nets. Boston will need better efforts from Theis, especially with Robert Williams (knee) out, if it wants to get by Brooklyn. While Theis started, reserves Grant Williams and Derrick White played more minutes as the Celtics tried to match Brooklyn's smaller, quicker lineup. For the rest of the series, Theis may continue to match Nets center Andre Drummond's modest minutes, as both bigs play a similar old-school style. But when the pace picks up, Theis will probably find himself on the bench.

Daniel Theis sends clear message in response to Bruce Brown's call-out

Despite Kevin Durant's best efforts at damage control, the Boston Celtics heard Bruce Brown loud and clear. After the Nets' win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Tuesday's NBA play-in tournament matchup, Brown took a swipe at Celtics big men Al Horford and Daniel Theis while explaining Brooklyn's keys to defeating Boston in their first-round NBA playoff matchup.

Boston Celtics: Daniel Theis likely to start in postseason

Good thing Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens acquired Daniel Theis at the February 10th trade deadline two months ago. The Cs are lacking their defensive anchor in the paint, Robert Williams, due to a torn left meniscus. That seemingly puts them squarely behind the 8-ball in the postseason, no matter who their first-round opponent may be.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Stellar offensive performance

Theis posted 22 points (8-12 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 32 minutes during Thursday's 127-121 loss to Milwaukee. Theis drew his fifth start over Boston's last six games and tied his season highs in made field goals, made three-pointers and points. Over his last six appearances, the German big man has averaged 13.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 28.8 minutes per game. He figures to continue garnering a sizable role for the Celtics as long as Robert Williams (knee) remains sidelined.

Op-Ed: Daniel Theis can fill in for Robert Williams, it just won’t look as good

The Boston Celtics were rolling. From January 1 to March 27 they had the second-most wins in the NBA, the third-ranked offensive rating at 117.1 and the number-one ranked defense with a stingy defensive rating of 104.3. Whether it be the Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz or Minnesota Timberwolves, all teams headed for the playoffs, the Celtics were clearly at the top of their game. Then, center Robert Williams III pulled up lame on a defensive possession and had to come out of the game. Before you knew it, Williams was getting surgery done on a torn meniscus and what seemed like a bright season suddenly had a dark shadow cast on it.

Celtics' Daniel Theis: Solid game in starting role

Theis provided 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist over 30 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 117-94 win over the Bulls. The Celtics elected to go big against the Bulls, and it turned out to be the right decision. Rather than play small ball with Derrick White or Payton Pritchard, the Celtics seem to prefer a trio of Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Theis in the front. Theis logged his third connective start, and the team should continue calling his number as long as Robert Williams (knee) remains sidelined.

Daniel Theis Gives Celtics a Chance to Survive without Robert Williams

BOSTON — Daniel Theis isn’t even thinking about becoming Robert Williams III. Nobody on the Celtics thinks Boston can replicate what their long, versatile roving shot-blocker brings to the team on the defensive end. Nobody in the NBA brings the lob range Williams III does. His impact proved ancillary to Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown’s scoring and playmaking, but became such a matchup problem for opponents that it allowed the Celtics to build 18-point per 100 possession advantages over the past month with him on the floor.
