The Boston Celtics simply can't catch a break on the injury front.

Jayson Tatum left Wednesday night's game vs. the Memphis Grizzlies in the third quarter with a right groin strain. The C's ruled him out for the remainder of the contest.

Boston will find out more about the extent of the injury during their travel day on Thursday.
