Jayson Tatum was in isolation after testing positive for Covid-19. On Monday, he returned to his team and played against the Chicago Bulls.

He shared his emotions on how he managed those two weeks being in isolation. This is what he said during the interview, via Jared Weiss:

“I can’t even lie, it was tough. Your initial reaction, once you find out, I don’t know if it’s panic, but you definitely worry because you read about how many people it’s affected and how many didn’t make it.”

The 22-year-old forward was back to his usual self as he scored 24 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 5 assists helping the Celtics win 119-103.
