The Boston Celtics will be without star forward Jayson Tatum for tonight’s Sixers game at the Wells.
Philly beat Boston 117-109 on Wednesday night.
Tatum was one of three players ruled out. Rookie forward Aaron Nesmith also is questionable to play due to lower back spasms.
Here’s the full injury report:
Aaron Nesmith (Low Back Spasms) – QUESTIONABLE
Carsen Edwards (Health & Safety Protocols) – OUT
Romeo Langford (Right Wrist Surgery) – OUT
Jayson Tatum (Health & Safety Protocols) – OUT
Tatum has missed the C’s last three games after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. He’s getting closer to a return but isn’t ready just yet.
