Brad Stevens says Jayson Tatum's ankle injury is 'moderate'




 

Folks have been making jokes on Twitter about Team USA being a preview of the Boston Celtics' season. Several Celtics, including prominent players Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart, have led Team USA in the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China. To that end, Boston's best assets carry the potential for injury.

On Tuesday, as the United States eked out an overtime win against Turkey, Tatum rolled his ankle. It came on a play late in the game when Tatum had just passed the ball off on a drive and was looking to crowd the lane for a potential rebound.

Naturally, the injury sent Celtics fans into a tizzy online, with many wondering what his status will be for the upcoming start of the NBA preseason.

Via Twitter:



Shortly after the United States' win over Turkey, Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters that he had briefly exchange text messages with Tatum, and that his injury didn't sound that bad.

Via Mass Live:

For now, we just have to wait until we get an update and trust that Tatum's injury appears to be a run-of-the-mill ankle sprain.
