Tatum and Brown have both been upgraded to available to play for the Celtics matchup vs. the Bulls on Monday. Brown was initially listed as questionable due to an illness after missing their previous game. Tatum was forced to pick up the slack in his absence, and he responded with 44 points and 64.5 FanDuel points in a thrilling win vs. the Warriors in primetime. That said, Tatum apparently suffered an ankle injury in that contest, but it’s not going to cost him any time.
The rest of the injury news for the Celtics is not as rosy. Robert Williams has already been ruled out due to a knee injury, while Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart are both questionable with illnesses. Evan Fournier also remains out of the lineup due to health and safety protocols.
If Smart and Walker cannot suit up, Payton Pritchard, Romeo Langford, and Grant Williams would be the most likely candidates to assume their minutes.
The Celtics are currently listed as 6.5-point favorites vs. the Bulls on FanDuel Sportsbook.The post Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum Available to Play Monday vs. Bulls first appeared on SportsGrid.
