Celtics C Tyler Zeller leads team to 117-116 win over Raptors


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Celtics center Tyler Zeller came up big in the team's overtime win over the Raptors, scoring 20 points in a 117-116 contest.

Zeller added nine rebounds and three assists to his stats. On the season, Zeller is averaging 10.2 points, 1.4 assists and 5.7 rebounds per contest.


Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scores career-high 26 points in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scored a career-high 26 points on 11 of 15 shooting from the field in Boston's 108-89 win over the 76ers Monday. Zeller also grabbed five rebounds and dished out two assists in the contest.

Zeller has shot lights out over the last two games, going a combined 19 of 25 from the field and scoring 44 points. 

"I think it's just opportunity," Zeller said to MASSLive.com. "Especially against people like Hibbert, who want to play at the basket, you can stretch the floor. I used it some my first two years in Cleveland, and now, if the opportunity's there, being able to pick-and-pop in the middle, my teammates are realizing, and I'm showing them that I can shoot that. So they're getting the ball to me. And then when I don't have it, we're making great plays off that."


Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scores 18 points in win Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scored 18 points on 8 of 10 shooting from the field in Boston's 93-89 win over the Pacers Saturday. Zeller also chipped in seven rebounds in the contest.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller sinks game-winner Wednesday vs. Jazz


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Celtics center Tyler Zeller made a reverse layup as time expired Wednesday to give his team an 85-84 win over the Jazz in Boston.

The Jazz put the towering Rudy Gobert on inbounder Marcus Smart with 1.7 seconds left on the clock, but the rookie guard was able to find his center for the winning basket.

"I saw Gordon (Hayward) flying in so I shot-faked and just got the ball up," Zeller said after the game, per the Associated Press. "Thankfully, I was able to get it up to the rim and was able to make it."

"With 1.7 seconds left, you're really lucky to get a shot up, let alone a basket," coach Brad Stevens said after the game.

Zeller finished with eight points on 4 of 8 shooting as well as 11 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

The Celtics will square off with the Pelicans Friday.


Celtics move Jared Sullinger back to bench for missing walkthrough


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) For the second time in a span of four days, Celtics center Jared Sullinger missed his team's walkthrough. As a result, coach Brad Stevens has placed Tyler Zeller in the starting lineup over Sullinger for Wednesday's contest against the Nuggets, reports the Boston Globe.

"It's the second time in two years, it just happens to be the second time in [four] days," Stevens said. "Again, I said it the other day, I don't think it's an issue. But he's just gotta be here. Our precedent is set."

Stevens said that he'll leave up to Danny Ainge on whether to fine Sullinger for being late again. Sullinger scored seven points in nine minutes off the bench on Sunday before regaining his role as a starter Tuesday against New York. He scored 22 points, grabbed nine boards and handed out six assists in 36 minutes against the Knicks.

Zeller scored 17 points in 32 minutes as a starter on Sunday, before returning his normal role off the bench Tuesday against New York. He scored nine points in 11 minutes against the Knicks. He is averaging 9.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game this season.

Boston is a 3-point home favorite over Denver. The line initially opened at 1-point in favor of the Celtics, per VegasInsider.com.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) The Celtics announced center Tyler Zeller will start in place of forward Jared Sullinger for Sunday's game against the Heat.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller doubles up Magic Tuesday in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Celtics forward Tyler Zeller led Boston with 22 points and 10 rebounds in the 100-95 loss to the Magic Tuesday. It was just Zeller's second double-double of the season and 12th of his three year career.

Celtics C Tyler Zeller scores team-high 22 points vs. Heat


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Starting options for Week 8


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) In my Week 8 (Dec. 15-21) Fantasy basketball planner, I identified eight lower-end players worth starting this week, headlined by Knicks guard Tim Hardaway and David West.

Other players worth getting into your lineup for this week are: Pacers guard Rodney Stuckey and Magic guard Evan Fournier;Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist; and Bucks center Larry Sanders and Celtics center Tyler Zeller.

Check out what I have to say about each player, as well as my take on the Nets' season of futility in the Week 8 planner. 


Celtics center Zeller posts game-bests in points, rebounds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Celtics center Tyler Zeller had not scored in double figures in the last seven games heading into Friday against the Lakers. But their porous defense was just what the doctored ordered as Zeller poured in a game-high and career-high 24 points.

Zeller added 14 rebounds to lead both teams in that department as well.


Despite start, Tyler Zeller still not interesting


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) The Celtics moved Tyler Zeller into the starting lineup at center Sunday, but should Fantasy owners be looking to add the third-year big man?

Zeller has been a per-minute dynamo for the Celtics this season, averaging 15.6 points and 9.1 rebounds per-36 minutes, though he has been mostly limited to a small role off the bench. Even in his start Sunday, which saw him score seven points while adding 10 rebounds, he played just under 23 minutes, while Kelly Olynyk came off the bench for 25 minutes.

If Zeller could sustain his pre-minute production in a larger role, he might be Fantasy relevant, but it doesn't appear as if the Celtics are ready to unleash him. He remains a role player, and is only worth a flier in deeper Fantasy formats until he proves otherwise. 


Celtics C Tyler Zeller starts, grabs 10 rebounds Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Celtics center Tyler Zeller made his first start for the team Sunday, scoring seven points on 2 of 5 shooting while grabbing 10 rebounds in his team's 111-89 loss to the Spurs Sunday.

Zeller has been an efficient scorer off the bench, making 68.9 percent of his shots while averaging 6.3 points and 14.1 minutes coming into Sunday's start. He didn't light up the scoreboard against the Spurs but could remain in the lineup with Kelly Olynyk also struggling Sunday. Zeller also kicked in one assist and one block in 23 minutes of action in the loss.


Celtics' Tyler Zeller expected to return


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Celtics center Tyler Zeller is expected to return to action Friday.

Zeller was hit in the eye during the first half of the game and suffered a corneal abrasion. He's expected to return during the second half. 


Celtics exercise options on Olynyk, Sullinger, Zeller


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Celtics have exercised options on forwards Kelly Olynyk, Jared Sullinger and Tyler Zeller, the team announced Wednesday.

Olynyk's option was a third-year option, while the other two players had fourth-year options. Olynyk averaged 8.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 20 minutes per game last season. Sullinger has averaged 10.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 24.6 minutes in 119 career games. Zeller has averaged 6.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 21 minutes in 147 career games.


Cavaliers, Nets, Celtics work out three-team trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) The Cavaliers opened up cap space in a three-team trade Wednesday, according to ESPN.com.

According to reports, the Cavaliers have traded guards Jarrett Jack and Sergey Karasev to the Nets and center Tyler Zeller to the Celtics, while the Nets sent Marcus Thornton to Boston. It is not clear what, if anything, the Cavaliers will receive in return.


Tyler Zeller goes off for career-game in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller put up one of the best performance of his career Saturday against the Rockets, during the course of a 118-111 loss.

Zeller played 30 minutes off the bench in the loss, despite generally being the fourth big man on the depth chart. That is because he was simply playing too well to sit, as he scored 23 points on 10 of 16 shooting. He added six rebounds, two assists and a block as well.

Zeller had previously reached the 20-point mark just once in 135 career games, so this was by far his best scoring performance. He has improved his game in his second season, despite playing a smaller overall role. He is averaging 5.3 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in 59 appearances. 


Tyler Zeller just misses double-double


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller managed to score in double figures on Friday, and fell just one rebound shy of his third double-double of the season in a 99-79 victory over the Jazz.

Zeller scored 10 points off the bench on 5 of 12 from the floor. He grabbed nine rebounds, with only three of them coming from the offensive end of the glass. He also chipped in with two assists while logging 23 minutes of game action. He is averaging 8.0 points and 5.2 rebounds over games played.

Tyler Zeller throws up big double-double


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller put together one of the best games of his career Tuesday against the 76ers, as he continues to fill in for the injured Anderson Varejao.  

Zeller played just 25 minutes in the game, but that was enough time for him to snag a career-high in rebounds. He grabbed 15 boards to go with 18 points on 6 of 14 shooting, while adding one assist and one block in the 114-85 win.

Zeller has been limited to mostly a reserve role in his second season, but is playing more recently. The 24-year-old is averaging 6.4 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in the month of February. 


Tyler Zeller does little with starting chance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller stepped back into the starting lineup Tuesday against the Kings, with Anderson Varejao sidelined by a back injury.

Zeller started the game but played just 18 minutes, with Anthony Bennett starring off the bench and taking much of his playing time. Zeller finished with six points on 3 of 5 shooting, while adding four rebounds and one assist in the 109-99 win.

Zeller has seen his role grow recently, though he is still very much a role player. The 24-year-old is averaging 4.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in 41 appearances. 


Tyler Zeller posts first double-double of season Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller recorded his first double-double of the season Tuesday, scoring 13 points on 4 of 8 shooting while grabbing 10 rebounds in his team's 100-89 loss to the Pelicans.

Anderson Varejao's absence would be a likely reason for Zeller's quality performance in theory, but Zeller did his damage in just 21 minutes while also tallying two assists and one steal. He has averaged 4.3 points and 3.5 rebounds over 34 games played.


Tyler Zeller scores 10 in win over Utah


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
