Jayson Tatum will miss his fifth straight game Sunday due to the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
But head coach Brad Stevens anticipates the Boston Celtics star will return to game action Monday when the Celtics visit the Chicago Bulls at United Center, per the team.
Tatum reportedly first tested positive for COVID-19 on Jan. 9. The Celtics have gone 1-3 during his absence, including back-to-back losses to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday and Friday.
Hopefully, Tatum’s return will give Boston a much-needed boost.
