The Celtics have tagged Jaylen Brown (left Achilles soreness) as questionable and Shane Larkin (left knee soreness) as out ahead of Thursday’s game but declined to put Jayson Tatum on the injury report.
This comes after Tatum dislocated his pinky last night. He said he was going to try and play tonight and it looks like the prophecy will be fulfilled. Keep an eye on his shooting over the next little while, as his taped finger might wreak a little havoc there. Larkin’s absence means nothing in fantasy circles while Brown has found a way to crack the top-150 despite some truly woeful free throw shooting. If he sits, look for Boston to spread his minutes across a handful of their bench players. There’s no immediate fantasy implications here.
