Fans of the Boston Celtics recently learned star Celtics forward Jayson Tatum may need surgery on a wrist issue he has dealt with since the latter half of Boston's 2021-22 campaign. The St. Louis native spoke about the issue in an interview after sitting out a contest to rest the wrist.
Downplaying the seriousness of the injury and assuring fans he will not need to miss significant time this season because of it, Tatum did not seem especially bothered by the nagging injury. However, some fans believe they can see signs of it affecting his play.
The hosts of the CLNS Media "Garden Report" recently took a hard look at the Tatum wrist issue for themselves, and shared their thoughts on how worried it makes them.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about the former Duke player's potential need for surgery in the 2023 NBA offseason.
