NBA Rumors: Celtics Star Jayson Tatum Out 10-To-14 Days Due To COVID-19 Protocols

A brutal break for Tatum and the Celtics


The Boston Celtics will be without their star player for at least 10 days, and possibly as long as two weeks.

Jayson Tatum is out due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, sources told The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The list of Celtics unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols now is up to four. Tristan Thompson, Robert Williams and Grant Williams already are out, though Robert Williams reportedly is the only one of those three to have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Tatum played in Friday night’s Celtics game, a win over the Washington Wizards in which he dropped 32 points.

Now, he’ll be out for a bit. The Celtics have five games in the next 10 days, and seven in the next 14.
