Less than two days after a cruel defeat in Milwaukee, Boston faces yet more bad news. The Massachusetts franchise will be without Jayson Tatum for the game against Minnesota, on the night of Monday to Tuesday. The Celtics have indeed placed the 23-year-old winger in “Covid protocol”, this Monday.
The double All-Star, who is averaging 25.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 33 appearances this season, was already sidelined for more than two weeks last January when he was fighting the Covid-19.
He thus joins his teammates Josh Richardson, Dennis Schröder, Enes Freedom (formerly Enes Kanter), Justin Jackson, CJ Miles, Aaron Nesmith and Bruno Fernando, all placed in health protocol.
