Brown's (hamstring) trainer, Desmond Eastmond, said Friday that the forward "wouldn't miss a beat" if the season "started back tomorrow," Tom Westerholm of MassLive.com reports. Prior to the NBA's shutdown March 12, Brown had missed the Celtics' last four games with a right hamstring strain, but Eastmond's comments imply that the injury is no longer a concern more than a month later. Eastmond noted that Brown speaks with him daily via Zoom calls regarding an individualized workout plan, which should keep the 23-year-old in optimal shape if or when the season resumes. After inking a massive contract extension in October, Brown has rewarded the Celtics' faith by turning in a career-best season. Over 50 appearances, Brown is averaging 20.4 points (on 49 percent shooting from the field), 6.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.1 three-pointers and 1.1 steals in 34.0 minutes per game.
Coach Brad Stevens said that Brown (hamstring), who has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pacers, is unlikely to play Thursday in Milwaukee, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports. The fact that Brown joined the Celtics for their two-game road trip at least keeps hope alive for him to play Thursday, but Stevens doesn't expect the fourth-year forward to make the necessary progress in his recovery from a strained right hamstring to gain clearance in Milwaukee. Before his status is determined for that matchup, Brown will be put through a workout Wednesday, which will give the Celtics a better idea of where he stands on the health front.
Brown (hamstring) will remain out for Tuesday's game against Indiana. It will be the fourth consecutive absence for Brown, who continues to work back from a strained right hamstring. The versatile wing will be evaluated on a game-to-game basis going forward, with his next chance to play arriving Thursday in Milwaukee.
Brown is expected to miss at least one week with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports. Brown, who injured his right hamstring during Tuesday's loss to the Nets, will be held out for the next week before being re-evaluated. Given the timeline, Brown will miss at least four games, beginning with Wednesday's matchup in Cleveland. In the meantime, Marcus Smart figures to join the starting lineup in place of Brown.
Brown (hamstring) will not play Wednesday against the Cavs. Brown tweaked his right hamstring during Tuesday night's loss to the Nets, and he'll be held out on the second night of the home-road back-to-back set. The Celtics will get Jayson Tatum (illness) back, but Gordon Hayward (knee) and Kemba Walker (knee) will also sit out against the Cavs.
