UPDATE (Mar. 30):

Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics scored 28 points on Tuesday after returning from a one-game absence due to a hip ailment.

The Celtics as a team had a poor game, especially on defense, but Tatum scored at a high level as usual.

The 25-year-old has led Boston to a 12-2 record in March, averaging 29.8 points, 9.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.9 threes, and 1.0 steals.

UPDATE (Mar. 26):

Keith Smith of Spotrac.com says that Tatum’s status for Sunday’s game against the Spurs is in doubt due to a left hip contusion.

Tatum is dealing with a sore left hip and may miss Sunday’s game, his sixth of the season. Since the Spurs are currently in tank mode, the Celtics may decide to rest Tatum tonight.

If this were to happen, Jaylen Brown would run the show offensively, giving Sam Hauser, Grant Williams, and Derrick White more playing time.

UPDATE (Mar. 24):

The Celtics (50-23) finished their six-game road trip with a 132-109 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, led by Jayson Tatum’s 36 points.

Since the All-Star break (13 games), Tatum has appeared in 13 of Boston’s 14 matchups and is averaging 27.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.5 blocks in 37.8 minutes per game.

UPDATE (Mar. 18):

Boston beat Portland 126-112 on the road late Friday night. Jayson Tatum scored 34 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the team, and Jaylen Brown added 27 points.

Tatum shot well in the first half, making five of his ten shots and making eight of his nine free throws. He had 19 points at halftime. In the second half, however, the small forward had trouble shooting from the field. He made only 3 of 10 shots from the field and scored 15 more points. He also grabbed 7 rebounds and gave out 2 assists.

Tatum still finished with a team-high 34 points thanks to 16-of-18 shooting from the foul line. He also led the Celtics in rebounds (12) and steals (3).

He has now gotten at least 10 rebounds in six of the eight games he has played this month, and he has made at least 16 free throws in the last two games.

UPDATE (Mar. 17):

Tatum might not be able to play against the Trail Blazers on Friday because his left hip is sore.

Tatum could miss the first game of the Celtics’ back-to-back on Friday because of a problem with his left hip. The All-Star forward hasn’t been playing well lately.

In his last two games, he’s only averaged 22.0 points and shot 31.6 percent from the field. If he didn’t play, Sam Hauser and Grant Williams would have to do more, and Jaylen Brown would have to do more offensive work.
