Jayson Tatum returns to Team USA practice Monday

According to the Associated Press, Boston Celtics and Team USA forward Jayson Tatum returned to practice on Monday for the first time since spraining his left ankle in Team USA's win last week against Turkey in the FIBA World Cup.

Fantasy Impact

Tatum was injured with one-tenth of a second left in regulation in the win against Turkey. Luckily, it appears as though he avoided a major injury. He even has a chance to play in Team USA's upcoming game against France on Wednesday in the FIBA World Cup quarterfinals. While this appears to be a minor, passing injury, those who own Tatum in a dynasty or keeper league will have to hope that there is no re-injury as he returns to action for Team USA.

Jayson Tatum suffers ankle injury in FIBA World Cup win

Jason Taytum suffered an ankle injury at the end of Team USA’s overtime win over Team Turkey in the FIBA World Cup on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Tatum had an outstanding game, recording a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. His most crucial shots came in the waning seconds of regulation where he hit two-of-three from the charity stripe to send the game into overtime. The injury occurred after he was knocked down while passing to Khris Middleton in transition, and Tatum apparently texted Celtics’ coach Brad Stevens shortly thereafter to let him know the injury was “not serious.” Tatum will likely be shut down for the remainder of the World Cup and should be good to go for opening tip-off of the NBA season. Still, fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status over the next month.

Jayson Tatum posts double-double in Monday's loss

Jayson Tatum accumulated 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting, with 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and two turnovers in 35 minutes in Monday's Game 4 113-101 loss to the Bucks.

Fantasy Impact

Tatum posted his second straight double-double after being a non-factor in Games 1 and 2 of this series. In his last four games, he's averaging 11.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.25 blocks, and 1.0 steal in 32 minutes. Tatum has been inconsistent, but he will look to continue his recent strong play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bucks.
