2020 Fantasy Outlook
Rozier's offseason move from Boston to Charlotte prior to the 2019-20 campaign turned out to be a major boon for him and the Hornets alike. Handed a full-time starting role for the first time in his five NBA seasons, Rozier responded with a major breakout, doubling his scoring average from the year before to 18.0 points per game along with 2.7 threes, 4.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.0 steals. Perhaps most remarkably, he shot 40.7 percent from long range -- a figure that was not only a career high in that category, but was in fact higher than any field-goal percentage he'd ever posted before last season. He ultimately made 172 threes, tying for 20th in the league. Rozier's free-throw percentage also spiked to a shiny 87.4 to accompany a 42.3 field-goal percentage, reflecting an all-around improvement in his shooting ability. However, it's possible he'll remain stagnant this season or take a step back. The Hornets selected guard LaMelo Ball with the third overall pick in the draft, and the team also signed Gordon Hayward to a huge contract. That could mean fewer minutes and less usage for Rozier overall. He'll still be safe to draft inside the top 100, but fantasy managers need to be weary of the situation. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Before Rozier arrived at Louisville, he spent a season with the Hargrave Military Academy to get his academic house in order. While at prep school, he averaged 29.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.6 assists. Meanwhile, the Cardinals won the National Championship, so the team was happy as he was coming on board. As a freshman, Rozier mostly came off the bench in support of Russ Smith. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 7.0 points and 3.1 rebounds and started 10 games. He scored a season-high 19 points in a win over Temple and scored in double digits in 10 games. After Smith had moved on, the Cleveland native moved into the starting lineup and was only held to single-digit scoring thrice. The sophomore led the squad with 17.1 points and added 5.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists. He put up a career-high 32 points in a win over Western Kentucky as the Cardinals got out to a 11-0 start. Rozier played well in the 2015 NCAA Tournament to help Louisville reach the Elite Eight. He scored 25 points in a win over Northern Iowa, then added 17 points and 14 rebounds to help knock NC State out of the bracket. Following his sophomore season, Rozier declared his intention to play in the NBA and got his wish granted when he was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Rozier appeared in 63 games for the Hornets during the 2019-20 season. He averaged per-game career highs in points (18.0), assists (4.1) and threes (2.7) across 34.3 minutes. He also averaged 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.2 blocks. Rozier shot a career-high 42.3 percent from the field, a career-high 40.7 percent from three and a career-high 87.4 percent from the charity stripe. On Mar. 9 against the Hawks, the former-Celtic established a new career-high with 40 points. He shot 15-of-26 from the field, 8-of-13 from three and 2-of-3 from the free-throw line, while also posting four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 44 minutes. Rozier's other single-game season highs were 10 rebounds, 10 assists, eight threes, four steals and two blocks. Rozier also had two double-doubles. Rozier had 25 games with at least 20 points, 31 games with at least five rebounds and 22 games with at least five assists. The Louisville product had five games with at least three steals and eight games with at least one block.

2018

Terry Rozier has proven to be a source of instant offense whenever given extended minutes. The 2018-19 season was no different. Rozier averaged 9.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists despite playing just 22.7 minutes per contest for a Boston roster that was much healthier than during the 2017-18 season. Celtic injuries in 2017-18 allowed Rozier to blossom and play 25.9 minutes per contest, so the 2018-19 drop in PT might have been frustrating for the young guard. "Scary Terry" topped the 20-point mark on five separate occasions, including 26 points in January against the Cavaliers and again versus the Clippers in March. Rozier continued to be a solid contributor from behind the arc, hitting 1.5 three point attempts per game. Rozier's scoring was helpful, but his rebounding from the point guard position really stood out. Rozier pocketed eight boards in two of Boston's first six contests and exploded for a season-high 11 boards against Atlanta on Jan. 19. Rozier's Celtics ended the season with a 43-39 record and swept Indiana in the first round of the playoffs. The Celtics then lost in to the Bucks in the second round of the playoffs.

2017

Rozier appeared in 80 games for the Celtics during 2017-2018. Rozier would go on to start 16 times. He established career-highs across the board with 11.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per tilt. Scary Terry scored a career-high 33 points at Sacramento on Mar. 25, canning eight three-pointers in the process. Rozier attempted five treys per contest, hitting a career-best 38.1 percent from downtown. With Kyrie Irving sidelined for the playoffs, Rozier upped his game in impressive fashion. He recorded averages of 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists during the postseason. Rozier played nearly 10 more minutes per game in the playoffs as he did during the regular season. He'd count at least 20 points in seven playoff games, as the Celtics advanced all the way to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals before succumbing to LeBron James and the Cavaliers. And to cap off a productive campaign, Rozier would end up tied for tenth in the voting for both the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year and Most Improved Player.

2016

In his second NBA season, Rozier appeared in 74 games off the bench for the Celtics, averaging 14.1 minutes per contest. He posted 5.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.6 steals per game while shooting a then-career-best 36.7 percent from the field. Rozier scored in double-figures 16 times. He recorded a season-high 16 points against the Magic on Dec. 7, also adding five boards and two assists. In a loss to Portland on Jan. 21, Rozier put up 15 points, three rebounds and three assists. He grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds to go with 14 points and two assists against the 76ers on March 19. Versus Detroit on Nov. 30, Rozier handed out a season-high six assists. He swiped three steals against the Wizards on Jan. 24 and matched that total in a win over the Knicks on April 2. In the postseason, Rozier appeared in 17 of the Celtics' 18 games as they advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. In Game 4 of the second-round series against Washington, Rozier established a new playoff-career-high with 16 points. In Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Rozier finished with 10 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.

2015

A rookie out of Louisville, Rozier appeared in 39 games for the Celtics, logging 1.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 8.0 minutes. The 16th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Rozier made his NBA debut on Oct. 28 against the 76ers, finishing scoreless with one rebound in two minutes of play. He scored his first NBA points on Nov. 6 against Washington, when he hit two of eight field goals (1-3 3PT) to finish with five points and three assists in nearly 20 minutes of action. Rozier scored a season-high seven points on two occasions. Against Toronto on Mar. 18, Rozier had seven points, a season-high five assists and three rebounds. On Apr. 3 against the Lakers, Rozier had six points and a season-high seven rebounds. In the playoffs, Rozier saw action in five games against the Hawks in Round 1, averaging 4.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 19.7 minutes per contest. Rozier also spent time with the Maine Red Claws of the G League. In 14 appearances, he posted averages of 19.4 points, 8.0 assists, 6.4 rebounds and 1.9 steals.

2015
Rozier saw his workload decrease last season as the Celtics were healthier compared to 2017-18. Still, he drew 14 starts and garnered a solid 22.7 minutes per contest. But Boston was not ready to commit to Rozier as their point guard of the future and instead acquired Kemba Walker in a sign-and-trade that sent Rozier to Charlotte. With the Hornets, Rozier figures to be the focal point of the rebuilding franchise. In 30 career games as a starter, the 25-year-old has averaged 14.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.4 steals. His 40.1 FG% in those starts leaves something to be desired, but he managed an impressive 39.6 3P% on 192 attempts. It's reasonable to think Rozier could play above those numbers, as he'll have less talent surrounding him on the Hornets than he did with the Celtics. While he likely won't turn into a great passer or dynamic scorer overnight, fantasy owners can look toward Rozier as an above-average rebounder at the point guard spot, plus a solid source of threes and steals.
Rozier proved in 2018 that he’s a more than capable NBA starting point guard. When Kyrie Irving went down with a knee injury in March, Rozier responded with 15 points, five assists and five rebounds per game over 34 regular season and playoff contests. Unfortunately, Rozier’s end-of-season run was marred by a dud performance in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The silver lining of that miserable Game 7 is it reminded everyone that Rozier is still a far cry from a star of Irving's caliber, who is expected to return, fully healthy for the 2018-19 season. That means Rozier will sink back into his reserve role, though he’s leapfrogged fellow-reserve Marcus Smart on the point guard depth chart. Assuming Irving can stay healthy, expect Rozier’s workload to hover in the 20-25 minutes per game range as Boston’s first guard off the bench. Between the Celtics' championship aspirations and Rozier’s upcoming restricted free agency next summer, the 2018-19 campaign will be one that holds major implications for Rozier's future in the league.
Rozier showed nice, steady improvement during his sophomore season in Boston, increasing his playing time from 8.0 minutes per game his rookie season to 17.0 minutes per game last year. Rozier’s tight defense and combo-guard skills also earned him key minutes during the Celtics’ playoff run, proving that coach Brad Stevens trusts Rozier. And now that long time Celtic Avery Bradley has been dealt to Detroit, the door is open for Rozier to see even more minutes in 2017-18. Expect Rozier to see key minutes backing up Kyrie Irving at the point and the combination of Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown at shooting guard. Considering Irving’s lack of defensive skills, Rozier will certainly be called on to slow down opposing star point guards. Rozier’s name was mentioned in a few trade rumors last year, in particular as part of a package that might have landed Boston a second-half rental of Serge Ibaka. The fact that GM Danny Ainge wouldn’t part with Rozier demonstrates that Boston is committed to further developing their 2015 first-round pick. Expect continued improvement and minutes for Rozier during his third year in Celtic green.
Rozier, a first-round pick out of Louisville, appeared in only 39 games for the Celtics last season, spending much of his rookie year glued to the bench behind Isaiah Thomas, Marcus Smart and Evan Turner. He also made 14 appearances for the Maine Red Claws of the D-League, averaging 19.4 points, 8.0 assists, 6.4 rebounds and 1.9 steals in just under 34 minutes per game. It's difficult to draw any conclusions from his modest per-game averages with the Celtics -- 1.8 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.9 rebounds -- but the most glaring takeaway is that Rozier, already an excellent defender, must improve as a shooter. The 22-year-old converted only 27.4 percent of his field-goal and 22.2 percent of his three-point attempts last season. His D-League percentages were more respectable, but he still failed to reach 40 percent shooting, while converting less than 34 percent of his 5.3 three-point attempts per game. Looking ahead, Rozier remains on more of a long-term development trajectory, though he'll likely see a slightly increased role as the Celtics' third point guard in 2016-17.
Some were surprised when Boston selected Rozier with the 16th overall pick in the 2015 draft. The diminutive 6-2 guard seems to be entering a backcourt logjam, entrenched behind 2014 first-round pick Marcus Smart and offensive sparkplug Isaiah Thomas. One must wonder how many minutes at point guard will be available for Rozier, barring injuries to Smart or Thomas. As occurred last year with James Young, Rozier seems destined for a year of lots of bench time in Boston while occasionally playing with the D-League Red Claws. That said, Rozier held his own in summer league, starting all five matches for the Celtics with averages of 12.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.0 steal over 28 minutes per game. Those numbers don't leap of the screen but do offer hope for the future. Rozier will most likely begin the season buried on the depth chart.
