While no official word has been given, all signs point toward Jayson Tatum returning to the Boston Celtics lineup after missing one game due to a right shoulder injury.A 

The 6-foot-9 forward, the teama€™s No. 2 scorer this season at 16.1 points per game, did not play in Bostona€™s 140-115 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.A 

a€œThe shoulder feels good,a€ Tatum said. a€œI had a chance to practice today. Hopefully it feels the same tomorrow and I play.a€

The second-year forward has played in all but three games for Boston, but the Clippers game was the first he missed due to injury.

a€œIt was a lingering thing,a€ Tatum said. a€œIt gave me a couple extra days of rest and treatment.a€

Having a healthy Tatum is good not only for this stretch run to close out the season, but also for Boston heading into the playoffs, which is when we saw Tatum at his best last season.A 

After averaging 13.1 points during the regular season, Tatum became Bostona€™s go-to guy in the postseason with a team-best 18.5 points per game.A
