Sunday’s NBA Injury News

The Boston Celtics have officially listed Tatum as doubtful on the injury report in advance of Sunday’s game.

It was previously reported that he would enter quarantine and miss the next 10-to-14 days because of health and safety protocols. Jaylen Brown, Javonte Green, and Semi Ojeleye are all questionable for Sunday’s contest due to the health and safety protocols.

The Brooklyn Nets should see Kevin Durant return to the lineup after clearing health and safety protocols, but Kyrie Irving’s status is still in question after he left the team for personal reasons.

The Los Angeles Lakers have their usual trio of starters listed on the injury report: LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Caldwell-Pope and Davis missed the Lakers’ last game, while James has played through his ankle injury since sustaining.
