Jayson Tatum to return after testing positive for COVID

USA Today Sports

Celtics forward Jayson Tatum is returning tonight after missing the team’s last five games after testing positive for the coronavirus.

Boston also had three matchups postponed against Miami, Chicago, and Orlando.

Tatum hasn’t played since January 8, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he’s on a minutes restriction tonight against Chicago.

The 22-year-old is averaging 26.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 3.8 assists across 10 games played in his fourth season.
