Jayson Tatum’s injured ankle looked fine Wednesday night, when he scored a team-high 37 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to help the Boston Celtics kick off a six-game homestand with a 125-112 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
Tatum was listed as questionable on the team’s injury report Wednesday with a sprained left ankle, but Boston coach Joe Mazzulla upgraded him to available before the game. Tatum injured his ankle when he landed on DeMar DeRozan’s foot during Monday’s loss to the Chicago Bulls.
Jayson Tatum led the @celtics to the pre-Thanksgiving Day victory with a 37-point double-double!
