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.
#NEBHInjuryReport for tomorrow vs. LA Clippers:
Jayson Tatum (right shoulder soreness) - QUESTIONABLE
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) March 11, 2019
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.
