Brown is questionable for Thursday's Game 5 against the Cavaliers.
Brown likely suffered the injury during Game 4, but was able to play through it. Through the first four games of the Eastern Conference Finals, he's averaged a modest 9.5 points and 3.8 rebounds across 19.3 minutes per game, though his potential absence would be magnified considering the loss of Isaiah Thomas. If he's unable to give it a go, expect the likes of Terry Rozier, Gerald Green and Marcus Smart to all possibly see additional run.
Brown contributed 19 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist across 24 minutes during a 130-86 loss to the Cavaliers on Friday.
Brown's 19 points were a team high as he received 24 minutes in the embarrassing Game 2 loss. His slight uptick in minutes largely came as a result of most of the game qualifying as garbage time. Based on his efforts in the first two games of the series, he should be in line for even more minutes in Game 3.
Brown posted 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds and one assist across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 117-104 Game 1 blow out loss to Cleveland.
The rookie has turned things around during these extended playoffs. Brown averaged only 2.7 points and 1.8 rebounds (and one DNP) from 10 minutes per game during the first nine matches of the post season. But for the past two games, Brown's averaged 9.5 points, 6.0 boards and 20 minutes of run. These are valuable minutes for the youngster, as he learns to adjust to the added physicality of playoff basketball. Brown will look to continue his productive bench play Friday night during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Brown didn't score (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), but gathered three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block during 26 minutes in Wednesday's 123-101 Game 5 win over Washington.
The 26 minutes were by far a playoff high for the rookie, who has often found himself in coach Brad Steven's dog house this postseason. Of course, many of those minutes came in garbage time during Boston's blow out win. Still, Brown contributed early in the first half with very aggressive defense and some deft passing. Predicting Brown's minutes for Friday's Game 6 is risky, as the young wing is averaging only 10 minutes a game this postseason.
Brown (illness) will be active and available to play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bulls, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.
Brown sat out of Tuesday's practice with an illness, but after receiving treatment over the last 24 hours or so, he's feeling better and will be available to play Wednesday. However, the fact that Brown is averaging just 5.5 minutes over the first four games of the series likely means he's set to spend most of the game on the sidelines, so he won't be a viable fantasy option for Wednesday's DFS slate despite being healthy.
