Jay King: Stevens said Semi Ojeleye could play the 5 some when the Celtics need to go small now that Theis is injured. Yabu is headed back from Maine to rejoin the team.
Jay King: Brad Stevens said Daniel Theis is weighing his surgical options and will most likely miss the rest of the season.
Adam Himmelsbach: Stevens on Theis: “You really feel for him....we’re gonna miss him on the court but he’ll have a full recovery.”
Shams Charania: Sources: Celtics center Daniel Theis has suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will undergo season-ending surgery. Theis emerged as an important reserve for Boston this season.
Marc D'Amico: Brad Stevens has good news regarding Daniel Theis’ hamstring injury: “He did some shooting last night and felt really good. He’ll go through shootaround and will likely be available to play (tonight).”
Bill Doyle: Daniel Theis (sore right hamstring) won't play for Celtics tonight. Brad Stevens thinks Theis shouldn't be out for long, but "with muscular injuries, you just never know."
Chris Forsberg: Celtics rookie Daniel Theis and his reset nose will play tonight vs. Heat. He’ll still be masked. Brad: “I guess that’s just how quick it is."
Marc D'Amico: #NEBHInjuryReport: Daniel Theis (broken nose) is questionable for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat. Marcus Morris (sore knee) is ruled out.
Boston Celtics big man Daniel Theis broke his nose during Friday night's loss to the Utah Jazz, according to head coach Brad Stevens. After the team announced Theis was not expected to travel for Saturday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, there was an apparent reversal of plans. Theis did fly with the team. No word was given on his availability for the Grizzlies game, but it's a good sign he made the trip.

Bryn Forbes parted ways with Milwaukee after not playing in the last three games of the Finals, and league sources said the Brooklyn Nets are believed to be a leading candidate for him. Other teams to keep an eye on: Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas and New Orleans.
With teams and players able to negotiate free-agent deals beginning on Monday at 6:00pm ET, the 31-year-old will enter the new league year as a coveted three-and-D wing. “I’ve been in the league for a while,” Ennis told Hoops Rumors in a phone interview this week. “I’m in the league for a reason, obviously. Good vet, a good locker room guy, good teammate all-around. I just want to win. That’s my biggest thing.”
The veteran forward will enter free agency armed with a respectable 41-game sample that should make him an appealing under-the-radar target for teams in need of a wing. “I like Orlando a lot. When I first got here, I got an opportunity — and that’s all you can ask from a coach,” said Ennis, who was dealt from the Sixers to the Magic at the 2020 deadline. “I’ve definitely enjoyed the city and I’ve made a lot of good memories with my daughter.”
Keith Smith: Per a source: The Detroit Pistons have extended a qualifying offer to Two-Way player Saben Lee. He’s now a restricted free agent. The Pistons have also officially renounced the draft rights to Jaylen Hands.
