Tatum totaled 14 points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a block over 27 minutes in the Celtics' loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
Tatum finished Wednesday's loss with an poor shooting performance, draining only three of 10 attempts from the field. He ends the series having shot only 36.3 percent, and the Celtics' season is now over. Tatum shined in last year's playoffs, but with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward back in the fold this year, his production trailed off noticeably.
Tatum finished with 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 35 minutes in the Celtics' loss to the Bucks on Monday.
Tatum produced his second straight double-double after posting a couple of duds in Games 1 and 2 of this series. His inconsistencies are a major concern, and the recent outburst in production has come on just a little late, currently down 3-1 to Milwaukee.
Tatum totaled 20 points (7-14 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 123-116 Game 3 loss to the Bucks.
Tatum finished with over twice as many points in this one as he did in the last two tilts combined. He is yet to sink a three through the first three games of the second round, but Tatum was at least able to regain his form offensively after the recent two-game slump. With the Celtics down 2-1 and in desperate need of a win in Monday's Game 4, Tatum is likely to have the same aggressive mindset heading into the biggest contest of the campaign.
Tatum contributed 18 points (8-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 104-96 victory over Indiana.
Tatum finished with 18 points in Friday's Game 3 victory, a game in which four of the five starters scored in excess of 16 points. The balanced scoring attack was just enough for the Celtics to take a stranglehold on the series with just one victory now standing between them and the second round of the playoffs. Tatum and Jaylen Brown finished a combined 4-of-12 from the charity stripe, a number that will need to increase if they are to make any real noise in the playoffs.
Tatum finished with 26 points (11-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 38 minutes Wednesday against Indiana.
Tatum had a tremendous outing Wednesday, scoring his most points since January 14th and providing sterling secondary production behind Kyrie Irving. The second-year forward's development seemed to stagnate for much of the year, but so far in the playoffs, he's returned to his 2017-18 form. Through two games, Tatum's averaging 20.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assist in 36 minutes.
Tatum (shin) is expected to be fine for Sunday's Game 1 against the Pacers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
There was never much doubt with regard to Tatum's status, though he was one of several Celtics regulars held out of Wednesday's regular season finale.
General manager Danny Ainge said Tuesday that Tatum (shin) will be "fine" this weekend for Game 1 of the Celtics' first-round playoff series with the Pacers, Tom Westerholm of MassLive.com reports.
Tatum was one of seven Celtics players withheld from Tuesday's 116-110 win over the Wizards with a listed injury in what amounted to a meaningless regular-season finale. Among the resting players, only Tatum and Marcus Smart (oblique) looked to be nursing legitimate injuries, with Smart's situation viewed as the more serious of the two. Ainge's comments suggest Tatum will be back at practice Thursday, which will clear up any lingering concern about the second-year forward's availability for the playoffs.

Tatum scored a game-high 22 points (9-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding seven rebounds, three steals, two assists and a block in 34 minutes during Friday's 117-97 win over the Pacers.
The win put Boston a game up on Indiana for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference with both teams having two games left to play -- giving the Celtics both momentum and the edge in securing home-court advantage against their likely first-round foe. It's Tatum's first 20-point performance since March 26, and only his second in his last 12 contests, and the club may need more consistency from the 21-year-old if it's going to make a deep playoff run.
Tatum finished Monday's game against the Heat with 19 points (7-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and a steal over 34 minutes.

Tatum (illness) took the court on Saturday and played more minutes than expected. He wasn't very impactful on the game, though that may have been due to his recent illness. Tatum has a couple of days to rest up before a Monday night tilt with the Heat where he'll look to bounce back.

According to coach Brad Stevens, Tatum will likely play Saturday, but if he does, he'll "be out there in shorter stints than usual".

Tatum is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Brooklyn, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
With Al Horford (rest) and Kyrie Irving (rest) already sidelined Saturday, Tatum would be in line for heavier usage than usual should he ultimately suit up. However, and update on his status is unlikely to come until closer to tip-off. Jaylen Brown and Gordon Heyward would be in line for bigger roles if he sits out.
Tatum scored 21 points (9-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, four assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 win over the Cavaliers.
He was back in the lineup after a one-game absence due to a sore back and looked 100 percent, tying Marcus Smart for the team lead in scoring. Tatum's production has been sagging down the stretch -- this was only the second time in his last 16 games he's dropped at least 20 points -- but he'll remain a key piece in the Celtics' starting five as the team tries to catch the Pacers for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.
Tatum (back) has been cleared to play Tuesday against Cleveland, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.
