There was little follow up on the posting that Jason had room to grow.There was a post that stated his growth plates had not closed.Were these just rumors,he turned 19 in March i have tried to find corroboration about who thought and why and whether growth plates had fused.

I heard this through one of the medias that I watched/read leading up to the draft, but I do not remember which one. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry for misleading or propagating wrong information. I do specifically remember hearing this in a credible way, but I cannot find the information. Here is a place (might not be the one I read) that references it. https://www.celticsblog.com/2017/10/23/16498506/jayson-tatum-maturation-be-accelerated-boston-celtics-fast-forward-gordon-hayward
I'm pretty medically illiterate but something about the term "growth plates" sounds like phrenology or some other bunk. Like I said, I don't now anything about it, just gave me a chuckle.
according to draftexpress.com he has a 6’11” wingspan which is pretty good. However, he seems so much longer than that. Maybe it’s his wide shoulders or the double jointed elbows but he just looks like he is longer than 6’11”. Anyone else agree?
I mean just medically speaking its unlikely he's still growing, most men don't grow much if at all after age 18 (height wise, muscle mass can be and often is significantly added). That said its not impossible.
