Jayson Tatum is on a terror that extends back to his return from missing three games in late January. In the 12 games since Tatum is averaging 29.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.2 blocks.
More frightening for his opponents is during this 12-game segment, Tatum is shooting 48.5 percent on 8.4 attempts per game.

Walker’s return date following the procedure to drain his knee and an injection to offset the swelling and pain is uncertain. The health report lists him as doubtful for Saturday.
Boston noted Robert Williams III (bone edema, hip) was practicing with the team a week ago and expected him back when the team returned from the western road trip. Consequently, his status was upgraded to questionable for Saturday.
