No restrictions on Tatum. Jaylen still questionable, seeing how he feels before the game. – 5:54 PM

The Celtics say Jaylen Brown is questionable for tonight’s game with neck soreness, and Al Horford will once again sit out the second half of a back-to-back as he has all year.
Jayson Tatum, who didn’t play yesterday with a sprained ankle, isn’t listed on the injury report. – 12:58 PM
Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
Per the Celtics, Jaylen Brown is questionable with neck stiffness. He looked a little uncomfortable at times yesterday.
Al Horford is out with back stiffness. Jayson Tatum is not listed, so looks like he’s back. – 12:57 PM

Jayson Tatum gets a day off and the Celtics still put up 130 points. Plus, Jaylen Brown on how he and Marcus Smart turned off-court headlocks into on-court chemistry.

Some players look thrilled to be on the sideline showing off their outfits and chilling. Jayson Tatum looked uncomfortable being in the building & not on the floor. But the #Celtics got him some much-needed rest and still won easily: clnsmedia.com/celtics-succes…1:24 AM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
The Celtics got an absurd 1.383 points per possession in their win Sunday (and did it without Jayson Tatum).
And while these numbers don’t feel sustainable, the Celtics through 20 games are simply lapping the all-time NBA field as the best offense in the history of ever. pic.twitter.com/FCagIIf9Ui10:49 PM

Jaylen asked about Tatum being out calls JT “our leader, our big dog” – 9:11 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards entered the day 8th in the East and the Celtics 1st, a potential playoff series. But Boston proved an especially tough matchup once again, this time without Jayson Tatum.
5 takeaways: nbcsports.com/washington/wiz…8:43 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I kind of wonder if Jaylen Brown gets a day off tomorrow on the back-to-back against Charlotte. Would make sense, especially if Jayson Tatum can play tomorrow. – 8:34 PM
A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
No Jayson Tatum? No problem for @Jaylen Brown and the rest of the #Celtics in defeating the Washington Wizards 130-121 in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score might indicate. sherrod.substack.com/p/what-can-bro…8:27 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Celtics get outscored 33-17 in the 4th quarter.
Wizards come to Boston, shoot 54% with 23 assists and 4 turnovers against the Tatum-less Celtics.
And it still wasn’t close.
Celtics have won 12 of 13, 8 straight at home.
Boston hits the quarter-pole 16-4, best in the NBA. – 8:23 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wizards lose to the Celtics without Jayson Tatum. Losers of three straight, the Wiz reach the quarter mark of the season at 10-10. – 8:20 PM
Adam Himmelsbach @AdamHimmelsbach
With Tatum out, seven Celtics have scored 12 points or more. – 8:14 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Celtics having a casual 60/50/100 shooting night without Jayson Tatum tonight – 7:54 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Celtics just put up 113 points in three quarters without Jayson Tatum. – 7:47 PM
Adam Himmelsbach @AdamHimmelsbach
Celtics with the casual 59.3/46.4/100 shooting splits late in the 3rd even with Tatum out.
This offense has been a true force. – 7:39 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I figured the Celtics would still move and score the ball without Jayson Tatum. I was a little worried about who would get on the boards.
Grant Williams with seven first half rebounds is good stuff. His career-high of 10 rebounds is definitely in play tonight. – 7:06 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wizards go into halftime down 72-55 against the Jayson Tatum-less Celtics. Boston is 11-23 3PT (47.8%) and outrebounding the Wizards 24-12. – 7:04 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Celtics lead the Wizards 35-26 at the end of the 1st. Jayson Tatum is out, but Boston’s offense has been just fine so far. Porzingis leads all scorers with 11 pts. – 6:36 PM
Steve Bulpett @SteveBHoop
Jaylen Brown has attempted 19.2 field goals per game this season. With Jayson Tatum out, he’s gotten up six shots in the first 5:24 against Washington. #timetoeat6:24 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Deni Avdija draws Jaylen Brown as his primary defensive matchup with Jayston Tatum out. – 6:23 PM
A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
With Jayson Tatum out tonight, the Celtics starting five consists of Marcus Smart; Jaylen Brown; Derrick White; Grant Williams and Al Horford. – 6:08 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Very curious to see who gets Jayson Tatum’s minutes tonight. There aren’t all that many more for the other guys, so I’m guessing both Payton Pritchard and Luke Kornet see some time tonight. – 6:08 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
At TD Garden, where Boston will be without Jayson Tatum against Washington. That usually means a big night for Jaylen Brown. Brown last season in games Tatum missed: 30.4 points, ten rebounds, 4.4 assists. – 5:45 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Wizards at Celtics – TD Garden – Nov. 27, 2022 – Starters
Boston – Smart, White, Brown, Horford, G. Williams
Washington – Monte Morris, Bradley Beal. Corey Kispert, Deni Avdija, Kristaps Porzingis
OUT: Boston: Tatum, R. Williams, Gallinari Washington: Kuzma, Wright, Hachimura pic.twitter.com/XMEEYSRnsI5:37 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
No Jayson Tatum for the Celtics tonight.
Rui Hachimura, Kyle Kuzma and Monte Morris all remain gametime decisions for the Wizards. – 4:48 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Doesn’t seem like Joe Mazzulla is going to change Jaylen Brown’s substitution pattern with Tatum out, noting he’s comfortable in it and the team has depth to handle things with Brogdon & bench – 4:20 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Joe Mazzulla didn’t commit one way or another whether Jayson Tatum will play tomorrow. He’s sitting out tonight as a “precaution” though and had played two games after tweaking his ankle, so read into that what you please. – 4:18 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
