Jayson Tatum News
Boston Celtics small/power forward Jayson Tatumwill enter quarantine and be forced to miss the next 10-14 days of action after testing positive for COVID-19. Stemming from the incident, Boston could be down as many as seven players when they next take the court Sunday. In his quarantine window, the Celtics are on track to play five to seven games, all of which they could be without Tatum and more, depending on the results of contact tracing. At 10.1 made field goals on a nightly basis, Tatum entered play Saturday tied for third in the league, all while dropping 26.9 points per game. It's unclear who will see the largest uptick in usage in Tatum's absence while the league determines who the team will have available moving forward.
Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum had another superb offensive outing on Friday against Washington, shooting 14-for-27 from the field en route to a team-high 32 points. He made three triples with nine attempts and had five rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Tatum already had a strong start to the season, but he's been even better since the turn of the year, shooting 45.5 percent from deep and averaging 30 points with six rebounds and four assists. He gets one more game this week against Miami on Sunday. Tatum shot 62.5 percent from downtown and scored 27 points against the Heat in this season's first meeting on Jan. 6.
Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum posted his eighth 20-point game of the season in a 107-105 win over the Heat. Tatum added five triples, five boards, four assists, and a steal in 38 minutes. The 22-year-old got off to a fast start but is really starting to heat up in January, with averages of 29.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 4.3 triples, and 1.3 blocks per game on 48.8/48.5/90 percent shooting splits in four contests. Tatum seems poised to flirt with a top-10 finish in category formats and should continue to see a heavy workload on offense sans Kemba Walker (knee). He'll get a day off before a Friday matchup with the Wizards, the third fastest-paced team in the league thus far.
Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum finished with 24 points and scored the game-winner in Sunday's 122-120 victory over the Pistons. He also notched 12 assists, eight rebounds, and two blocks while shooting 10-for-22 from the field and 4-for-8 from outside. Tatum, who didn't commit a single turnover in 37 minutes, has been rolling nicely early in the season, and he gets to showcase his good form next against Toronto. The Raptors are among the league's best defensive teams, but they just allowed Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson to combine for 52 points against them on Saturday, so Tatum should be able to get plenty of buckets again on Monday.
