Brown underwent surgery in late April to repair a ligament in his right thumb but notes that he'd be ready to play if the NBA season resumes, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports. It's not clear when Brown suffered the injury, but it sounds like he's recovered well. This season, he's averaged 8.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals across 28.2 minutes.
Brown (ankle) was ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Sixers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. Brown was considered questionable with a right ankle sprain but won't be available Wednesday. Jordan McRae and Khyri Thomas could see increased run in his absence.
Brown is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Sixers with a right ankle sprain. The 23-year-old presumably picked up the injury during Sunday's spot start against the Knicks, as he had 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds over 37 minutes. Derrick Rose (ankle) remains sidelined, so Brown should continue to see plenty of opportunities, if available. Brandon Knight and Jordan McRae are otherwise in line to see increased run.
Brown tallied 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds across 37 minutes in Sunday's 96-84 loss to the Knicks. With Derrick Rose (ankle) sidelined for at least a month, opportunities are going to open up throughout Detroit's backcourt. Although Brandon Knight got the first crack at replacing Rose at the point, it's Brown who played the floor general Sunday while Knight sat with a knee injury. Brown possesses a versatile skill set that makes him valuable as a placeholder at several positions, and it's likely that we'll see a lot of the Miami product as the season draws to a close.
Brown will start Sunday's game against the Knicks, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. With Brandon Knight (knee) limited, the Pistons will bring Brown off the bench and move him into the starting five. Brown made his return from an injury of his own Saturday night against Utah and finished with five points, five rebounds and seven assists.
