A few odds and ends after the Celtics had their practice snowed out in Waltham on Thursday afternoon.

Jayson Tatum named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month

The rookie was the first Celtic to earn the honor since Marcus Smart in February 2015. He averaged 14.6 points (52.9% FG, 45.1% 3-PT), 5.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 32.0 minutes over 17 games. He scored 10 or more points in 14 of those games, which led all NBA rookies during that span.
