Shaq Becoming a Viable Fantasy Option

Although he's playing only 22.7 minutes a game, Boston Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal is putting up some good numbers. In his last five games, Shaq is averaging 14.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, and a block on a scorching 75% shooting.

The Breakdown
Shaq appears to be a viable option for owners in standard leagues in need of help at center. Snatch him up while he's playing well. Be ready to cut him loose, though, if he goes through a bad stretch. With only 22.7 minutes a game, we're not sure how long he can keep producing solid fantasy lines. The Celtics are trying to keep him rested for a deep postseason run, so the minutes are unlikely to increase.
