Jayson Tatum (shoulder) questionable for Monday vs. Clippers

The Celtics may be without forward Jayson Tatum for the first time all season on Monday, as Tatum has been listed as questionable for the Green's head-to-head with the Los Angeles Clippers due to right shoulder soreness.

The diagnosis for the 21-year-old Tatum comes after what was a definite quiet game against the Lakers on Saturday, with just six points on a 2-for-7 night from the floor.

Tatum has been Boston's second-most effective starter this season, with 16.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per night. The 6-foot-9 wing scored 16 points and collected eight rebounds in the team's Feb. 9 meeting with the Clips at TD Garden.

The Clippers, meanwhile, enter Monday's game with four straight victories and wins in 19 of 31 home games this season.
