The third overall pick Jayson Tatum was seen in a walking boot following Wednesday night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Tatum reportedly is suffering from a sore right ankle.

He also had scans done on his injured ankle after the contest. He’s also expected to be re-evaluated by the team on Thursday.

It appears that this injury was re-aggregated by the likes of it. It appeared during the second quarter that the ankle was bothering him, as he did not appear to be a 100%.

The team then decided to shut him down for the night. Depending on the further tests, he could miss a few days, at best, before returning.

Semi Ojeleye could see an increase in playing time with Marcus Morris starting. In their next game on Friday, Morris could get the start with both players seeing more time.

The Celtics are also without Al Horford, who is concust and missed Wednesday’s game. He could also miss Friday’s game, which would mean that Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis would get more time, as well.
