This is a rough blow for Boston Celtics. Jayson Tatum ($7,500) was having a really strong game prior to getting hurt and the team is already dealing with an injury to Jaylen Brown, who did not play tonight. Prior to getting hurt, Tatum scored 23 points and 44.75 DKFP against the Memphis Grizzlies. He was well on his way to a monster night and Boston is going to have a big void to fill if he misses time. Kemba Walker ($7,400) leads the team with a 31.9% usage rating and scores 46.28 DKFP per 36 minutes when Tatum is off the court. Kemba could be a strong fantasy option moving forward.
