Playing just one day after dislocating a finger, Jayson Tatum finished Thursday’s loss with a respectable 17 points, two threes, six rebounds and two steals.
Tatum won’t let a pinky injury derail his wonderful rookie year and there’s not much to suggest he’ll slip below top-75 value on the year. He’s looking very much like the real deal and Boston was able to pluck a gem from this impressive draft class. Keep trotting him out there with confidence now that this minor injury scare can be filed away.
