Jayson Tatum (non-COVID sickness) joins prolonged damage report for tomorrow’s Bucks sport


Get up, new damage report simply dropped.

This might get tough! The Boston Celtics, driving a four-game successful streak, are set to tackle the Milwaukee Bucks, driving a 10-game successful streak), tomorrow in Milwaukee, however in response to the damage report, Boston may very well be lacking a variety of firepower. There was some lingering hope that Marcus Sensible (ankle) and Jaylen Brown (face) would be capable to squeeze in a single sport earlier than the All-Star break, however they’re each listed as out tomorrow. I wouldn’t anticipate them to play Wednesday in opposition to Detroit both.

This implies we’ll have to attend a bit longer to get final 12 months’s beginning lineup again on the ground collectively so as to add to the 29 complete minutes performed as a unit this season. With the absence of Sensible and Brown, Derrick White (final week’s East Participant of the Week) and Jayson Tatum have stored the workforce afloat throughout this streak. Derrick White’s PotW award will likely be put to the check if Tatum can’t go tomorrow on account of sickness.

The plan was for Tatum to seemingly relaxation in opposition to Detroit to ship him packing for the All-Star sport a little bit early, in response to Brad Stevens, however it seems that his immune system has different plans.

A daily season sport in February in opposition to the Bucks doesn’t maintain an excessive amount of significance within the grand scheme (don’t inform Bucks followers that, although), however it could have been most popular for an damage report like this to pop up in opposition to a lesser workforce if for no different purpose than for the Celtics so as to add to their unbelievable stats in opposition to the top-four groups within the East.

Moreover, Grant Williams has a sore proper elbow, which makes him questionable for the Bucks sport. He wore a sleeve on that arm yesterday in opposition to the Memphis Grizzlies. Robert Williams tweaked his ankle final week however stayed within the sport. Maybe that’s nonetheless bothering him a little bit, however he’s listed as questionable as effectively. On the brilliant facet, Malcolm Brogdon is prone to play after he sat out in opposition to Memphis yesterday with proper achilles soreness.

Derrick White stays the one Celtic to play in each single sport this season.

In tomorrow’s worst-case situation, right here’s Boston’s depth chart:

Ball-Handlers: Derrick White, Payton Pritchard, JD Davison

(s)Wings: Sam Hauser

Bigs: Al Horford, Mike Muscala, Blake Griffin, Luke Kornet, Mfiondu Kabengele

9 gamers, and 4 of them play the identical place! Might be an attention-grabbing sport if nothing else. Tune in tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. EST to see the way it all shakes out.
