    Tatum had 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block in 34 minutes during Thursday's 98-97 loss to the Bucks.

    Impact

    Tatum has posted a double-double in three of the last six games, giving him twice as many double-doubles through 59 appearances this season (eight) as he managed across 80 games last season (four). Apart from minor dips in field goal and three-point shooting percentages and a stagnant steals average, Tatum has improved his statistical contributions across every category. As such, the sophomore forward remains a strong option across all formats.

    Tatum ended with 30 points (12-24 FG, 6-14 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 26 minutes during Team USA's 161-144 victory over Team World.

    Impact

    Tatum was in scoring mode Friday, scoring 30 points in 26 minutes during Team USA's victory in the Rising Stars Challenge. Along with Kyle Kuzma, the pair attempted 51 field-goals, almost half of the entire teams total. Tatum continues to have a productive season for the Celtics, although is perhaps underachieving when compared to the numbers people may have been hoping for. That being said, he is one of the most consistent fantasy assets you will find and his numbers should continue along the same trajectory as the season progresses.

    Tatum accumulated 19 points (8-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 34 minutes Wednesday against Detroit.

    Impact

    Tatum led his squad with 19 points, but everyone in the starting five also chipped in and finished in double figures in a 118-110 victory at home. The 20-year-old has been a reliable contributor for the Celtics throughout the 2018-19 campaign and will enter the All-Star break averaging 16.4 points, 6.3 boards, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal through 57 games.

    Tatum posted 20 points (7-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and an assist in 34 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.

    Impact

    Tatum recorded his seventh double-double of the season and second in his past three games. While continuing to provide steady scoring and rebounding numbers, Tatum's stepped up his defensive production recently and is averaging 1.7 steals and 1.7 blocks over his past five games.

    News

    Tatum finished with 22 points (9-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 36 minutes Thursday in the Celtics' 129-128 loss to the Lakers.

    Impact

    Tatum's long-term future with the Celtics is uncertain amid rumors that the Pelicans view him as a centerpiece in a potential Anthony Davis deal this summer, but for now, he'll continue to serve as an efficient scoring complement to Kyrie Irving while he remains with Boston. Since a six-point dud Jan. 28 against the Nets, Tatum has bounced back nicely with averages of 18.2 points (on 52.3 percent shooting from the field), 6.8 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.0 triple and 0.8 steals in 30.8 minutes over his last five outings.
