And as they return home to TD Garden to host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, it again will be without Jayson Tatum.

Tatum reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and was put in the NBA’s health and safety protocols on January 9. He’s since returned to practice after being cleared, but hasn’t seen to game action yet.

The trend will continue against with the Cavaliers, with Tatum ruled out for Sunday’s game.

Additionally, the Celtics revealed Saturday that rookie guard Payton Pritchard will be out for at least the next two weeks with an MCL sprain, and Romeo Langford remains out as he rehabs from wrist surgery.

Rookie Aaron Nesmith was listed as doubtful after tweaking his back in practice on Thursday.

Here’s the full injury report:
