    Jayson Tatum had a nice game Friday in a 112-107 win over the Hawks, going for 32-6-4 with two blocks.

    Tatum is the focal part of the Celtics on the offensive end. He became the youngest Celtic with back-to-back 35 point, five assist efforts in the last 35 years. He's been a top 10 player over the past two months. Fantasy owners should either sell high or continue to reap the benefits of this fantasy stud.

    Jayson Tatum stuffed the stat sheet in Wednesday's 100-116 win over the Magic, finishing with 33 points (11-24 FG, 5-11 3PT), eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks.

    It's hard to ask for a much better night than this. Tatum is flirting with top-25 value on the season and more nights like this will see him on the inside looking out. With the Celtics' lineup banged up, he should see plenty of opportunity.

    Jayson Tatum was efficient in a road win over the Hawks on Monday with 28 points (10-of-20 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and five triples in 35 minutes.

    Tatum has sneakily put up second-round value over his 13 games this past month. Aside from feasting on a few extra shots while Kemba Walker has been out sporadically, there's nothing that's unsustainable about Tatum's recent surge.

    Jayson Tatum (groin) will not have a hards minute restriction, but isn't likely to play more than 35 minutes.

    Tatum is working his way back from a groin injury, so this is a step into the right direction. Look for Tatum's restrictions to be lifted within the next game or two.

    Jayson Tatum returned from a groin injury and filled up the stat sheet in 24 minutes on Thursday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with six boards, two dimes and a triple-one line.

    Tatum was able to score efficiently even though his 3-ball wasn't falling (1-for-5 3PT) tonight. He also added defense to his line to help round things out. Jaylen Brown (18 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and two triples) also had a solid game across the board with Gordon Hayward (25 points on 8-of-15 shooting, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three triples) being the leading scorer for a Celtics team that has enough to go around for all of their talented wings.

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) will play on Thursday night but will be on a minutes limit.

    It's better than nothing, and the budding superstar is good to get back into lineups on tonight's six-game card. You can dial back the usage of all the other Celtics, with Grant Williams among the players most likely to lose minutes.

    Jayson Tatum is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors as he continues to deal with a strained right groin.

    Head coach Brad Stevens told the media earlier in the day that Tatum should return by Saturday. However, it is still possible that he returns for Thursday's game against the Warriors with the questionable tag. If Tatum does sit out for the fourth consecutive time, expect the main starters to play even more minutes while Grant Williams could see additional minutes off the bench.

    Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) should return by Saturday.

    The Celtics play on Saturday, but Stevens also left the door open for a Thursday return if all goes well. Tatum has missed a week of action after last playing on January 22. He has averaged 21.5 points and 6.9 rebounds this season.

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Heat.

    With Tatum once again out of the lineup look for Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart to soak up the majority of his minutes.

    Speaking to reporters this morning, Brad Stevens suggested that Jayson Tatum is unlikely to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Tatum has missed the last couple games and it looks like he won’t be returning tonight. The Celtics saw Jaylen Brown return on Sunday against the Pelicans and the young guard, together with Gordon Hayward, will have to carry the load against the Heat.

    Enes Kanter (right hip contusion) will be held out of Tuesday's game.

    Kanter has missed two consecutive games, and Tuesday will mark the third. The production of Jayson Tatum and Daniel Theis have not left him with a useful role in most fantasy leagues.

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game.

    Tatum hasn't played since Wednesday. Daniel Theis has assumed his spot in the starting lineup, scoring a total of 31 points with 15 rebounds over those two games.

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) will not play on Sunday against the Pelicans, but Jaylen Brown (right ankle sprain) and Marcus Smart (left hand sprain) will be on the floor.

    You can use Brown and Smart more or less like you normally would and with Tatum out there are more shots to go around for everybody.

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Jaylen Brown and Tatum find themselves on the injury report once again. Gordon Hayward and Kemba Walker would pick up a ton of usage of one or both Brown and Tatum sit, while Marcus Smart would be expected to draw the start.

    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.
