Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Solid effort off bench in Rising Stars Challenge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum provided 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 26 minutes during Team USA's 155-124 loss to Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge.

The star rookie carried over his strong play into Friday's exhibition, with his scoring total checking in third on the team behind teammate Jaylen Brown and fellow first-year standout Kyle Kuzma. Tatum's learning curve has likely been accelerated by a significant amount as part of the domino effect of Gordon Hayward's catastrophic ankle injury on Opening Night, and the extra floor time has helped lead to averages of 13.5 points (on 47.5 percent shooting, including 42.7 percent from three-point range), 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 31.0 minutes in 59 games. While his 10.0 shot attempts per contest are a relatively modest amount that have capped his scoring contributions to an extent, Tatum should only get better as the Celtics push for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Spearheads Team USA in Rising Stars Challenge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown registered 35 points (14-21 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes during Team USA's 155-124 loss to Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Brown exploded for a game-high scoring total with a blistering effort from the field, and he managed a team-best rebound tally along the way. The performance was one befitting of the 21-year-old's emerging and diverse skill set, one that's helped him average 14.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steal across 31.6 minutes in 54 games. The second-year swingman has often complemented his offensive contributions with solid defense, and although his usage is typically well below Friday's levels while playing alongside Kyrie Irving, he projects as a solid asset across all formats for the remainder of the regular season.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Shoots during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (hand) has progressed to shooting with tape on his hand during practices, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.

Smart remains out through the All-Star break, though this is certainly an encouraging sign for his recovery. While he remains sidelined, Terry Rozier and Semi Ojeleye should continue seeing an uptick in workload, with Rozier being the main beneficiary.
