Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (illness) is available for Wednesday's game versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Tatum is under the weather with a non-COVID illness, which teammate Jaylen Brown was also dealing with at this time a week ago, but he'll give it a go on Wednesday against the Bucks. The durable Tatum has yet to sit a game out for the Celtics this season, racking up 28.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 3.4 threes per game. The 25-year-old four-time All-Star should be locked into season-long lineups, with at least a bit of risk in DFS that his play is affected by the illness. Sam Hauser loses a lot of appeal as a streamer with Derrick White (personal) and Al Horford (rest) back in the mix for Boston in a duel between two of the Eastern Conference's juggernauts.
The Boston Celtics have listed forward Jayson Tatum (illness) as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Tatum is under the weather with a non-COVID illness, which teammate Jaylen Brown was also dealing with at this time a week ago. The durable Tatum has yet to miss any of Boston's 14 games this season, tallying a superb 28.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 3.4 three-pointers in 36.9 minutes per game in Beantown. This one may be likely to come down to a game-time decision based on how the 25-year-old four-time All-Star is feeling following pregame warmups. If Tatum isn't feeling well enough to play for Wednesday's heavyweight battle with the Bucks, Al Horford and Sam Hauser would likely absorb more playing time against Milwaukee's big frontcourt.
Boston Celtics forwards Jayson Tatum (rest) and Jaylen Brown (rest) will start Tuesday's preseason game versus the New York Knicks. The Celtics' superstars are back in action after a few maintenance days for what's essentially being treated as a dress rehearsal for the Boston regulars. Head coach Joe Mazzulla said the squad's top six players will operate on regular-season minutes on Tuesday, making the likes of Tatum and Brown very attractive DFS targets in preseason contests. Tatum is a confident first-round asset across all season-long formats for upcoming drafts while his running mate, Brown, should be a fourth-round fixture.
Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum decided against surgery on his non-shooting hand in the offseason, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne has revealed. Tatum has been troubled by a left wrist problem since Boston's playoff run in 2022, but he played through it last season and is ready to do so again. The ailment actually didn't seem to affect Tatum at all, as the Celtics star had a big career year with 30.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 4.6 assists. Shelburne reported that Tatum's wrist "feels really good" after receiving a cortisone shot, so there's no reason to worry for fantasy managers, at least for now.
