According to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, Tatum underwent tests after missing Saturday's practice. He was cleared to practice two days later after the imaging showed no serious damage. "Jayson's X-rays and MRI whatever came back looking good," Stevens said after Monday's practice. "I don't know what officially he was diagnosed as but he went through most of practice today and he'll be at least questionable, probably probable, for tomorrow."
Sean Grande: Unless something happens in warmups. Jayson Tatum will play tonight. Al Horford is out. So, there you go.
Steve Bulpett: Celtics will be listing @Jayson Tatum as questionable for tomorrow night's game v. Charlotte. ... MRI must have revealed no major problem with his ankle.

Avery Bradley is coming off a couple of down seasons but was one of the league’s stingiest individual defenders earlier in his career, and he’s only 30. He’s been given the impression, per a source, that he will have a real chance to make the roster and, with Thompson out early in the season, there’s a clear path to playing time if he rediscovers his old form, which would catapult him back onto the market next summer.
