Pretty innocuous looking play when Jayson Tatum strained his groin but you can see him motioning to that area after retreating to the back with a trainer. pic.twitter.com/efFAI69AeF

Tatum left for the locker room as soon as Brad Stevens called timeout.

After he was looked at by the Celtics’ staff, the team ruled Tatum out with a right groin strain.

At the start of the fourth quarter, Tatum returned to Boston’s bench with his right thigh wrapped up.
