Brown exited Tuesday's game against the Celtics due to a hamstring injury. He will not return. This injury marks the end of Brown's season, as Tuesday is the Wizards' final game. Prior to this contest, the rookie had started the past nine games, averaging 11.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 31.6 minutes.
Brown ended with 24 points (9-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 95-90 victory over the Nuggets. Brown went off for a career-high 24 points Sunday, torching the Nuggets with five triples from his seven attempts. He has now scored in double-digits in two straight games but had scored just 15 points combined in his three games prior. He should be in for decent minutes on a nightly basis moving forward but is tough to trust outside of deeper formats.
Brown will start Thursday against the Nuggets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. With Trevor Ariza (groin) out, coach Scott Brooks will give Brown the nod. Brown played 30 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Chicago, posting nine points, 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Brown finished with nine points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal over 30 minutes in the Wizards' loss to the Bulls on Wednesday. Brown played heavy minutes, logging his most playing time all season in Wednesday's loss. With the Wizards barely alive in the Eastern Conference playoff race and unlikely to make any noise in the playoffs, the Wizards' coaching staff may elect to give the 18-year old some extra court time over the final few weeks of the NBA regular season.
Brown had zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and two assists in five minutes during Saturday's 119-112 loss to the Pacers. Brown rejoined the team after suiting up in the G League on Friday, but he was used sparingly in this one. The rookie rarely sees double-digit minutes and has appeared in only 30 games this season, though he could be a bit more involved in the latter stages of the campaign.
