Brown (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) posted 21 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), eight assists, two rebounds and a steal across 25 minutes in Friday's 124-97 win over the Magic.
The Celtics were without Jayson Tatum (COVID-19 protocols) and Marcus Smart didn't have his best outing, so Brown was forced into more of a play-making role and thrived. Even in abbreviated minutes to the blowout, Brown set a season-high mark in assists while also pacing the Celtics in scoring. Brown has at least 20 points in all but two of his appearances this season, and he should continue to see plenty of extra usage with Tatum out.
Brown (COVID-19 protocols) is available for Friday's game against the Magic, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.
The Celtics haven't played since Jan. 8 due to postponements, but Friday's game is on and Brown is available. With Jayson Tatum (COVID-19 protocols) still out, Brown should see plenty of usage. Over the past five games, he's averaging 24.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.6 steals in 36.4 minutes.
Brown (COVID-19 protocols) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.
The Celtics are listing several players as questionable, indicating that they still may have some hurdles to clear in terms of the league's health and safety protocols. Either way, this is a step in the right direction for Brown, who was initially expected to miss Friday's contest. Brown hasn't played since Friday's win over Washington, though he technically hasn't missed any time, as the Celtics' last three games have been postponed.
Brown (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) is expected to remain out through Friday's game against the Magic, though he could be eligible to rejoin the Celtics as soon as Saturday, Tom Westerholm of Boston.com reports.
Brown entered the NBA's health and safety protocols Friday, when he was deemed to be a close contact of Jayson Tatum, who tested positive for COVID-19. At this stage, no reports have surfaced indicating that Brown has tested positive himself, so the expectation is that he'll be cleared to return to the team once he completes the seven-day quarantine that has been standard for players ruled out through contact tracing. Since Tatum's positive test, the Celtics have had three consecutive games postponed, so Brown won't actually end up missing any action until Friday's contest, assuming it ends up being played.
Brown and the Celtics won't play Wednesday against Orlando after the game was postponed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
For Boston, it will be the third straight postponement after Sunday's game against Miami and Tuesday's game against Chicago were subject to the same situation. The Celtics are still dealing with COVID-related absences that left them without the required eight players for the games to take place.
Brown and the Celtics won't play Tuesday against the Bulls after the game was postponed by the NBA, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Celtics have now have two straight games postponed after the league previously nixed Sunday's game against the Heat due to Boston not having enough players available due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. With the virus ravaging Boston's roster, it's very possible Wednesday's game against Orlando could also be in jeopardy.
Brown (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Heat, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
Brown is one of nine Boston players ruled out for Sunday's contest, with seven sitting on account of health and safety protocols. Given the varied timelines for players to clear the protocol, Brown looks to be in serious jeopardy of missing a portion or the entirety of the Celtics' four-game slate in Week 4.
Brown is questionable for Sunday's game against the Heat due to health and safety protocols.
The Celtics are the latest team to get hit with a wave of health and safety protocols, and it's possible they'll be down to the of minimum eight available players for Sunday's game. Keep an eye on Brown's status -- as well as other players' status -- closer to tipoff.
Brown scored 27 points (9-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go with 13 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 38 minutes in a 116-107 win over Washington on Friday.
Brown found his stride in the second quarter on 5-for-6 shooting to total 18 points by halftime. The forward recorded his second double-double in as many games. Brown has excelled this season from the field, shooting 54.7 percent this campaign. The 24-year-old has an impressive confidence this season, averaging 19.1 field goal attempts this year compared to last season's 15.6 attempts per game.
Brown recorded 21 points (8-23 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks during a win at Miami on Wednesday.
Brown logged value in other statistical categories to make up for the inefficient shooting. In particular, Brown's 12 rebounds helped him earn his first double-double across this campaign. His rebound and assist tallies marked season highs far above those he averaged through eight previous games (4.6 RPG and 3.1 APG).
Brown recorded 19 points (7-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal over 34 minutes in Monday's 126-114 win over the Raptors.
Brown might have been outshined by Jayson Tatum in this game, as the star forward poured 40 points, but Brown still delivered a strong performance across the board. The fact that this was just the second time he couldn't reach the 20-point mark all season long speaks volumes of the scoring threat he's been for the Celtics so far.
Brown compiled 31 points (13-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt), three assists and a rebound across 35 minutes in Sunday's 122-120 win over the Pistons.
After scoring 25 points against the Pistons on Friday, Brown's 31-point performance helped the Celtics split the weekend with Detroit. Although you'd expect Jayson Tatum to lead the team in scoring, it's Brown who leads the team in that category presently. The Duke product was brilliant in the Orlando bubble and is picking up where he left off. All signs point toward a breakout year for the multi-category contributor.
Brown scored 25 points (12-20 FG, 1-7 3PT) to go along with nine rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks across 38 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.
Brown started the game slowly, missing his only two shot attempts in first quarter. However, he found his shot from there, with the only real blemish on his stat sheet coming from three-point range. Though Brown has gotten attention for his scoring early this season, he has multiple steals in all but two games and is delivering well-rounded stat lines.
Brown scored 42 points (15-21 FG, 7-10 3PT, 5-6 FT) to go with five rebounds, four assists and one steal across just 29 minutes in a 126-107 win over Memphis on Wednesday.
Brown continued his impressive start to the season, this time taking it to another level when he only needed three quarters to eclipse 40 points for the first time in his career. The forward didn't play in the fourth quarter as Boston maintained a comfortable lead throughout the contest. Brown's seven made baskets beyond the arc are the most for the 24-year-old in a game since the 2017 season. Wednesday marked the third game this season in which Brown has led the Celtics in scoring. Brown's dominated on both ends of the court early on, averaging 28.0 points and 1.8 points per game this season, and has no signs of slowing down production outside of resting games anytime soon.
Brown scored 20 points (7-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-10 FT) while adding four steals, two rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 116-111 win over the Pacers.
The 24-year-old had a fast start to the season with 60 points in his first two games, but Brown has returned to last year's still strong scoring pace during back-to-back games in Indiana. Jayson Tatum appears to be emerging as the Celtics' top offensive player while Kemba Walker (knee) remains sidelined, but Brown's been plenty productive as the team's 1B option.
Brown collected 18 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 108-107 loss to the Pacers.
Brown put together another strong performance, continuing his promising start to the season. After a dynamic campaign in the bubble, Brown finds himself with added responsibility this season. Thus far, he appears up to the challenge and could end up being a bit of a draft-day steal. He was typically being taken in the 70 range in a lot of drafts, an ADP that could end being quite unflattering. The top 50 is certainly within reach for Brown, and should he manage to turn his free throw shooting around, who's to say he can't be a top-40 asset come season's end?
Brown provided 27 points (11-25 FG, 0-4 4Pt, 5-9 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot across 31 minutes in Friday's 123-95 loss to the Nets.
Brown led the team in scoring despite connecting on only 44 percent of his shots. He also failed to find the bottom of the net in four three-point attempts. The Nets successfully held down Jayson Tatum, which gave Brown more opportunities to contribute, which is likely to continue happening with Kemba Walker still sidelined.
Brown registered 33 points (13-24 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block across 38 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Bucks.
Brown paced the Celtics in the season opener and delivered a strong performance on both ends of the court, as he also excelled as a playmaker and as a defensive presence. Brown should be one of Boston's go-to players on offense this season and will get another chance to thrive Friday on Christmas Day against the Nets.
Brown had 16 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and four assists in Friday's 113-89 defeat against the Nets. He also had a steal and a turnover in the game.
Brown was much more productive offensively Friday than he was against the 76ers few days ago, once again finishing with the second-most points on the Celtics. He still struggled from three-point range, however, and he will want to improve before Wednesday's regular-season opener against Milwaukee.
Brown posted five points (1-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals over 22 minutes in Tuesday's 108-99 preseason loss against the 76ers.
Brown struggled badly with his shot and finished second in field-goal attempts with 11, only trailing Jayson Tatum's 13. Brown should be one of Boston's main scoring threats once the regular season begins, and he is widely expected to turn things around before then. He averaged a career-best 20.3 points per game in 2019-20.
