The Boston Celtics have been stricken with the injury bug lately, and even star forward Jayson Tatum isn’t safe.
Since last year the MVP hopeful has been dealing with wrist issues, as he had a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist that was bothering him during the C’s lengthy run to the 2022 NBA Finals. Luckily, he doesn’t envision missing many games this season despite the discomfort.
Although Tatum is committed to playing as much as possible right now, he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of surgery at the end of the season.
So far, the 24-year-old has sat out for just three games during the 2022-23 campaign, as he most recently rested during Boston’s shorthanded victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.
