Jayson Tatum Illness
Due to sickness, Boston Celtics standout forward Jayson Tatum was unable to play in Monday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Tatum was on the court for pregame warmups before it was determined that he wouldn’t be able to play.
In a 112-96 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night, Tatum scored 23 points in 29 minutes. This season, the All-Star has averaged 24.9 points and 6.8 rebounds in 37 games.
Due to the fact that it was the second game of a back-to-back, guard Kemba Walker (knee) sat out against the Grizzlies.
Low back tightness has been ruled out for Jayson Tatum. Marcus Smart is still sidelined, according to a league source, as he travels to New York for a second opinion on his torn thumb. Kyrie Irving is still resting his surgically repaired left knee, while Jaylen Brown is still in concussion protocol.
Daniel Theis has been declared out for the season due to a torn meniscus and is awaiting surgery.
Coach Brad Stevens revealed on 98.5 The Sports Hub that Jaylen Brown will not accompany the club on their upcoming road trip this weekend. Marcus Smart may return later this season if he opts not to have surgery, according to Stevens, but Smart will take a few days to consider his options before making a decision early next week.
Terry Rozier and, most likely, Shane Larkin will start for Boston, who is on a 15-17 minute rest period as he recovers from persistent knee soreness. The frontcourt will be rounded out by Tatum, Marcus Morris, and Aron Baynes.
With John Wall still out, Washington will start Thomas Satoransky, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter Jr., Markieff Morris, and Marcin Gortat.
Boston will fill out the rest of the rotation with Kadeem Allen at guard, Abdel Nader at wing, and Greg Monroe, Semi Ojeleye, and Guerschon Yabusele at big. To field a balanced team, Boston will have to stagger Tatum and Morris with quick replacements. To add more perimeter depth, the team might bring in Jabari Bird, a two-way player.
If three players are out through this week’s games, Boston may be eligible for a hardship exemption, which would allow them to add another player to the roster while Horford, Brown, and Irving recover.
