According to MassLive’s Tom Westerholm, Jabari Bird remains hospitalized as of Monday afternoon and is not expected to be arraigned today.

Bird can only be booked and processed after he has been discharged by doctors.

Per Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston, Boston Celtics guard Jabari Bird remains under “guarded watch” at a local hospital as of Monday morning. Bird reportedly continues to undergo an “evaluation”, which could prevent him from appearing in court on Monday.

Once he is released by doctors, police will officially charge Bird for his role in the alleged assault, where he is said to have choked and kidnapped someone on Friday.

As the Boston Globe noted earlier this morning, police are not releasing any further information due to a law that prevents authorities from disclosing details of alleged domestic violence cases.

We’ll have updates throughout the day on this story.
