Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has already been ruled out of Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons due to a sore right knee. However, the former No. 3 overall pick will travel with his teammates to Milwaukee for Thursday night's matchup against the Bucks with intentions of playing, according to a report from Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.

The fact that Tatum is close to be ready for action is obviously great news for the Celtics, who are currently holding a 27-11 overall record. He was originally listed as probable for Wednesday night's game, but the team is airing on the side of caution. A minor case of tendinitis in his right knee seems to be the issue at hand.

With Tatum ruled out for Wednesday night's game against the Pistons, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams will likely see upticks in their usage rates. Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward will likely need to play an increased role as well.

In other Celtics injury-related news, big man Daniel Theis is hoping to be available for Wednesday's game. He's been dealing with a right quad tendon ailment, which forced him to miss Monday's game against the Bulls. Stay tuned for more updates on his status as we approach tip-off.

Wednesday night's Celtics-Pistons matchup is scheduled to tip inside TD Garden at 7:00 p.m. ET. Boston will be looking to improve on a two-game winning streak. Detroit, on the other hand, has lost three straight.
