    Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Enes Kanter, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis were all left back in Boston as the Celtics plan to rest most of their rotation guys for Tuesdays’s game against the Cavs.

    The Celtics destroyed the Cavs on Sunday and are opting to give the night off to their starters as the season opener is just a week away. Tatum is actually battling an illness but the rest of the guys will just receive a maintenance day.

    The Celtics picked up the fourth-year option on forward Jayson Tatum.

    Tatum has enjoyed two strong seasons out of the gate in Boston. It's no surprise that the Celtics want to keep him around. Expect Tatum to be drafted around the fifth round of many drafts.

    Jayson Tatum (illness) did not practice on Monday and will not travel to Cleveland for Tuesday's game.

    There's no need for the Celtics to push their young star for the last preseason game. Expect a skeleton crew from Boston tomorrow night, which should bring lots of value to the DFS table. Tatum remains a solid top-60 selection in fantasy drafts.

    Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with 15 points, along with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and two treys on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Tatum once again was the leading scorer for the Celtics in 21 minutes of playing time. He will likely battle it out with Kemba Walker in leading the team in scoring all season. Tatum was solid last season across the board and can be found in the early to middle rounds of standard-league drafts.

    Jayson Tatum had a strong start to the Celtics' preseason on Sunday with 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting, along with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, three steals and a block.

    Tatum led the Celtics in scoring for the game in just 23 minutes of action. It is nice to see him get off to a fast start on this reconfigured roster. Tatum delivered efficient across the board value last season, and if he is ready to take on a larger scoring burden in comparison to last season (15.7), he could surprise his owners with early-round value.

    Jayson Tatum said that his ankle felt good after practicing on Tuesday.

    Celtics fans can officially breathe a sigh of relief after seeing Tatum go down in the World Cup. Tatum had a down season compared to his stellar rookie year but is looking to bounce back after the team lost Kyrie Irving and Al Horford in free agency.

    Jayson Tatum, who was nursing a left ankle sprain, will be available for training camp.

    Tatum is a valuable contributor overall for the Celtics, providing solid numbers in the points and steals categories. He also drained 85.5 percent of his free throws last season.

    Jayson Tatum, who missed part of the World Cup with a left ankle sprain, will be ready for Celtics training camp when it begins next week.

    Tatum averaged 15.7 points and 6.0 rebounds last season for the Celtics. He's a solid shooter who could take a step forward in his third NBA season.

  • Donovan Mitchell

    Donovan Mitchell scored 16 points with 10 assists as US beat Poland 87-74 on Saturday to finish seventh place in the tournament.

    Mitchell was an efficient 5-of-6 from the field and 4-of-4 from downtown but the bigger story of course was USA's disappointing showing as this was only the second time that they finished outside the top-3 in the FIBA World Cup since 1978. Kemba Walker (neck), Jayson Tatum (ankle) and Marcus Smart (hand/quad/calf) all sat out the final game as they now have two weeks to rest before the start of training camp.

    Celtics forward Jayson Tatum missed Team USA’s quarterfinal contest against France on Wednesday, as he continues to nurse a sprained ankle.

    Tatum wanted to play against France and he should be able to return against Argentina on Friday, should Team USA advance to the semifinals. The Celtics forward has averaged 10.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steal in two games so far in the FIBA World Cup.

    Jayson Tatum will be a game-time decision after he participated in Team USA's shootaround ahead of their quarter-final game against France.

    The Americans might need all the help they can get to beat the French team. Rudy Gobert, Evan Fournier and Nicolas Batum have been playing well for France. The winner will get Argentina in the semi-finals. Tatum should be fine, if not a little worn out, by the start of training camp.

    Shams Charania is reporting that there is a "strong chance" that Jayson Tatum (sprained left ankle) will be able to return from a three-game absence on Wednesday against France.

    Tatum will be a game-time decision but it sounds as if he's on the cusp of a return. It's a tough matchup for the Americans, with even tougher ones on tap should they advance, and a full-strength Tatum would go a long way towards keeping the team's World Cup hopes alive. Even better, this drastically decreases any concerns we might've had about his fantasy outlook.

    Jayson Tatum (sprained left ankle) missed Monday's FIBA game against Brazil.

    Tatum is set to be re-evaluated today and it's not surprising that he sat out what was a meaningless contest. The Americans play France as the knockout round opens.

    Jayson Tatum is out for the next five days and he will be re-evaluated on September 9th due to the sprained left ankle he suffered in Tuesday's OT win over Turkey.

    Tatum will miss at least the next couple games against Japan and the team that ends up second in Group F (likely Greece) in the Round of 16. Team USA also plays on the day he is expected to be re-evaluated, so it’s possible that he doesn’t return to the court until the quarterfinals of the tournament. Khris Middleton, Harrison Barnes and Donovan Mitchell will continue carrying the offensive burden while Jaylen Brown, his teammate in Boston, will also have to step up.

    Jayson Tatum said that his ankle is already feeling better as he left the arena wearing a shoe and without having a bad limp after Tuesday's injury.

    This is a positive sign for the young forward but his availability going forward will probably be determined tomorrow. Tatum fed a pass to Khris Middleton to set up the game’s final points before rolling his ankle under the basket.
