Jayson Tatum    F  Celtics

 

 

Jayson Tatum (knee) was quiet in 27 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, scoring 10 points with five rebounds, two assists, one block and two triples. Tatum missed a practice over the weekend after tweaking his knee last week vs. Philly, but all the test results came back clean. "It feels a lot better. I just tweaked it in the game in London, and the long plane ride it got a little stiff," he said. "We had a few days off of practice, I mean, off until our next game. So they just told me to rest the other day at practice." He's been one of the most consistent rookies this season and is flirting with top-50 value in standard 9-category leagues.

Al Horford    F/C  Celtics

 

 

Al Horford (calf) scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Pelicans. He's been banged up lately with a sore knee and sore calf, but he's had plenty of time off to rest and it's a great sign that he played 38 minutes tonight. Horford hit four 3-pointers for the eighth time of his career in the loss, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block. The Celtics were bullied by Anthony Davis tonight and Horford will have his hands full again on Thursday vs. Joel Embiid and the 76ers.

Kyrie Irving    G  Celtics

 

 

Kyrie Irving scored 27 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and five triples in Tuesday's 116-113 overtime loss to the Pelicans. This was Boston's second game in the last 10 days, but the well-rested Irving got off to a slow start before erupting with a 16-point third quarter. He finished just 8-of-24 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with an uncharacteristic six turnovers -- this was his third game of the season with that many. Expect a more efficient game on Thursday vs. Philly.

Abdel Nader    SF  Celtics

 

 

Nader (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports. Nader is dealing with the flu and despite receiving treatment throughout the day, he's still not feeling well enough to take the court. His next shot to play will be Thursday against the 76ers and considering it's just an illness, there's a decent chance he's able to return for that contest. That said, Nader is currently outside the Celtics' regular rotation, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact.

Al Horford    C  Celtics

 

 

Horford (calf) is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Brian Robb of the Boston Sports Journal reports. Hoford sat out practice over the weekend, but rejoined the team for Monday's session and was never expected to miss any time. He'll take on his typical role Tuesday and he doesn't appear to be on any sort of restrictions, so he can be activated in both season-long leagues and DFS contests Tuesday.

Jayson Tatum    SF  Celtics

 

 

Tatum (knee) has been cleared to play and will start in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports. After missing practice over the weekend with stiffness in his knee, Tatum rejoined the team for Monday's session and was given a probable designation heading into Tuesday. For that reason, it doesn't come as a surprise that Tatum will be cleared and he's expected to take on his typical starting role. The Celtics aren't reporting any sort of restrictions for their prized rookie, so he should be on a full workload barring any increase in discomfort during Tuesday's contest. Fantasy owners should go ahead and activate Tatum as usual.
