Jayson Tatum Sits On The Bench In Celtics-Grizzlies Game Due To Illness And NBA Reacts To Elgin Baylor’s Death

Highlights:

  • Jayson Tatum sits out Celtics-Grizzlies game due to illness
  • NBA legend Elgin Baylor no more, entire NBA family mourns

Boston’s search for stability continues, albeit without Jayson Tatum for at least one day. The Celtics’ All-Star player missed the match against the Grizzlies played on Tuesday owing to illness, the team announced before the tipoff.

Tatum has been averaging a career-high of 24.9 points while shooting 38.1% from the 3-point range in his fourth season.

He along with Jaylen Brown have formed one of the most talented young duos in the league.

Having said this, Boston has struggled to build consistency around the pair of promising swingmen. The Celtics have not been more than three games above .500 since this January.

With injuries to Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart, as well as a bout with the deadly COVID-19 for Tatum, have limited the team’s ability to rebound.

Entering the Tuesday’s game, the Celtics (21-21) held just a half-game lead for the sixth and final guaranteed playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Teams placed seventh through 10th will participate in the Play-In Tournament, with the two winners claiming the seventh and eighth seeds.

On Monday (Tuesday IST), the Los Angeles Lakers’ 11-time NBA All-Star, Elgin Bayor, who soared through the 1960s with his high-scoring style of basketball that became the model for the modern player, died on the 22nd of March at the age of 86.

The LA Lakers announced that Baylor died of natural causes in Los Angeles with his wife, Elaine, and daughter Krystal by his side.
