Greg Monroe scored 17 points with nine rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.
Revenge game? Monroe's time with the Pistons did not end well, so credit to him for stepping up with Serge Ibaka (knee soreness) out. It doesn't sound like Ibaka will be out for long, so Monroe isn't worth a speculative add unless we hear Ibaka will miss additional games. Nov 14 - 10:21 PM

Greg Monroe was a healthy DNP-CD on Tuesday.

The veteran has drawn zero fantasy attention this season, with good reason -- he's had six DNPs in Toronto's first eight games, with a total of nine minutes of playing time. He'll be anchored to the waiver-wire unless Serge Ibaka or Jonas Valanciunas get injured.

Greg Monroe finished his disappointing preseason with a whimper on Thursday, scoring eight points with four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 22 minutes against the Pelicans.

With most of the Raptors regulars sitting, Monroe had a chance to showcase himself. Much like his previous three preseason outings, he did not impress. He looks to be buried on the bench for a team that wants to play small. Monroe has very little fantasy value to start the season.

Greg Monroe said he's been working on his 3-point shooting and is starting to feel more comfortable from distance.

He talked to coach Nick Nurse and is working to adapt his game to the 2018 pace-and-space style. "Now it's just time to get reps in game situations," Monroe said. He hasn't made a single 3-pointer in his entire career, which is pretty impressive for a guy who has logged 589 games in the regular season. The big man was decent on his long twos in a small sample last year, making 8-of-17 from 16-24 feet. We're not expecting him to make an impact from deep this season.

Greg Monroe has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $2.2 million deal with the Raptors.

Monroe will help bring some depth to Toronto's frontcourt, and he could be in a nice situation to produce if Jonas Valanciunas ever goes down with an injury. However, when the team is at full strength, Monroe will likely see his minutes confined to the lower-20s, which isn't really enough floor time for him to make a huge impact in fantasy hoops.

The Raptors are interested in signing Greg Monroe, according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN.

The Raptors have 13 players on guaranteed or partially-guaranteed contracts and are looking to fill the 14th spot with another big man. Toronto could still bring back Lucas Nogueira, who's an unrestricted free agent, but that seems unlikely. Chris Boucher is also on an Exhibit 10 deal coming into training camp which means he'll likely end up in the G-League. Monroe would add depth at both the center and power forward position, but the Raptors could end up going with a more cost-effective option.

The Celtics are not expected to bring back free agent center Greg Monroe.

No surprise here, as Monroe barely played in the postseason and is a liability on defense. Monroe could be a solid fantasy producer in the right situation, so it will be interesting to see where he lands this offseason. The big man will be 29 this June.

Greg Monroe (illness) is questionable for Game 2 on Tuesday but he was warming up with the intent to play.

Monroe finished with just one point and three rebounds in 10 minutes of action on Sunday, and coach Brad Stevens said he didn't play much in Game 1 because the Bucks "went small quite a bit." The small-ball impact wasn't limited to Monroe, as starting center Aron Baynes played only 15 minutes in Game 1, and it will be interesting to see how this chess game plays out in Game 2. All signs point to Monroe playing tonight.
Apr 17 - 6:23 PM

Greg Monroe went 7-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 17 points in Sunday's 112-106 loss to the Hawks.

Monroe added two rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in the 22 minutes he was out there, and while this was a productive stat line, Monroe won't be hitting 87.5% of his shot attempts on most nights. If Al Horford gets rested again over Boston's final two games, Monroe will be someone to think about as a streamer, but he's far less attractive when the Celtics bigs are active.
Apr 8 - 5:43 PM

Greg Monroe posted a rare triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

What? Not only was it the second triple-double of his career, but it was the first trip-dub from a Celtics center since Robert Parish in 1987. Obviously Al Horford not playing in this game set him up and Marcus Morris getting ejected was another factor. Monroe could get a night off, but he could really produce in the nights he's active.
Apr 6 - 11:29 PM

Greg Monroe went 4-of-7 from the field and 9-of-9 from the charity stripe on his way to 17 points in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Raptors.

Monroe also came through with eight rebounds, three assists and two turnovers, but he failed to bring any defensive stats to the box score. Monroe has been very hit-or-miss in Boston, and that inconsistency isn't worth dealing with in standard 12-team leagues. Marcus Morris finished with 21 points, one 3-pointer, five rebounds, one steal and five turnovers in 34 minutes off the bench, and he's the more attractive reserve to own in Boston.
Apr 5 - 12:02 AM

Greg Monroe scored eight points with eight rebounds, four assists and four steals in 23 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Al Horford not playing was obviously a big factor. It's possible that the Celtics sit Horford out again, but they have a light schedule for the next five games with only one game -- Saturday vs. Toronto. Monroe is only a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:31 AM

Greg Monroe came off the bench to hit 3-of-8 shots for eight points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 19 minutes on Monday.

Al Horford has played pretty well in three straight games, but Monroe has still carved out a role as his back up. But since going for a 10 & 10 double-double on Friday, Monroe is averaging just 6.0 points and 6.0 rebounds over his last two games. He's intriguing, but impossible to trust now that Horford is playing well again.
Mar 27 - 12:55 AM

Greg Monroe cooled off on Sunday with four points on 2-of-10 shooting, adding eight rebounds, two assists, two turnovers and zero defensive stats in 20 minutes.

Monroe came in with double-digit points in five straight games, his longest streak of the season. His scoring will be more important than ever with Kyrie Irving (knee) done for the regular season, so we're not reading much into tonight's dud vs. the Kings -- Kosta Koufos actually deserves some credit for checking Monroe tonight. He should fare much better vs. Phoenix on Monday.
Mar 25 - 10:04 PM

Greg Monroe posted 10 points with 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots over 20 minutes in Friday's win at Portland.

Monroe is enjoying what is easily his best stretch of the season, posting 10 or more points in each of his past five outings. He is averaging 14.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocked shots per game over the five-game span. He should enjoy another productive game on Sunday in Sacramento against a team not exactly known for their defensive prowess.
