According to MassLive’s Tom Westerholm, Jabari Bird remains hospitalized as of Monday afternoon and is not expected to be arraigned today.
Per the Suffolk County DA’s office, Jabari Bird remains hospitalized and will not be arraigned until he is discharged, booked and processed. That isn’t expected to happen today.— Tom Westerholm (@Tom_NBA) September 10, 2018
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.
A Boston police official tells @NBCSBoston that #Celtics guard Jabari Bird remains under guarded watch at a local hospital. Once released, he will officially be charged for his alleged role in a Friday night incident in Brighton with a court date possibly later today or tomorrow.— A.

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.
