Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum, who tested positive for COVID-19, is off the injury report and will return to the court against the Chicago Bulls on Jan. 25.

Tatum last played on Jan. 8 when he scored 32 points against the Washington Wizards.

The 22-year-old only missed five games, as three other games were postponed during the time he was out.

The Celtics went 2-3 in those five games Tatum missed.

In 10 games, Tatum is averaging 26.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, all career-highs.

While Tatum makes his return to the lineup, the Celtics will be without Kemba Walker who will sit out the second game of a back-to-back for left knee rehabilitation.
