Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is "feeling better" but will sit out of Friday's game against the Magic.
There was a collective sigh of relief when Tatum was unexpectedly tagged as questionable yesterday, but we cautioned that didn't necessarily mean that the team would rush him back. Groin strains, just like any other soft tissue injury, can only be healed through rest if there's no complete tear of the fiber, so this is actually good news for fantasy managers who are counting on Tatum for the long run. Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart will see a nice usage bump tonight.
