Nenad Krstic Gaining Value With Celtics

Boston Celtics center Nenad Krstic, acquired in the Kendrick Perkins trade, has scored in double digits in five of the six games he's played in green. He's also seen his minutes rise with the lack of center depth in Boston, culminating with tonight's 38 minutes against the Clippers.

The Breakdown
With Shaquille O'Neal slow to heal and Glen "Big Baby" Davis out, Krstic is locked into the starting center spot and should see between 25-30 minutes a night. Deep leaguers should scoop him up while he's playing well.

For standard formats, Nenad will have to show more consistency on the glass and blocking shots to make himself worthy of a roster spot. Still, he's certainly a player to have on your radar in case he starts to see 30+ minutes of court time on a consistent basis.
