Brown (wrist) underwent successful surgery Thursday and is expected to return to basketball activities in about three months, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Brown concludes the season with career-best averages in points (24.7), assists (3.4), steals (1.2), blocks (0.6) and made three-pointers (2.8) per game while also adding 6.0 rebounds in 34.5 minutes. Brown also set new career highs in field-goal percentage (48.4), free-throw percentage (76.4), and three-point percentage (39.7). His recovery timetable will presumably cut into his offseason workout schedule, but Brown should be available for the start of 2021 training camp.
Brown has been diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left wrist and will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This announcement seemingly comes out of nowhere, as Brown had missed the last three games with a sprained right ankle, and there was no discussion of a possible wrist injury. It's unclear exactly when it may have occurred, but the torn ligament will require surgery, and the Celtics have already ruled Brown out for the remainder of the season. It's a brutal conclusion for Brown, who got off to a red-hot start in December and January and was named to his first career All-Star team. He'll conclude the season with career-best averages in points (24.7), assists (3.4), steals (1.2), blocks (0.6) and made three-pointers (2.8) per game while also adding 6.0 rebounds in 34.5 minutes. Brown also set new career highs in field-goal percentage (48.4), free-throw percentage (76.4), and three-point percentage (39.7).
Brown (ankle) will not play Sunday against Miami, Chris Grenham of Forbes Sports reports.
Brown will miss his third game in a row due to a sprained right ankle. Evan Fournier will likely continue to start in Brown's absence, while Aaron Nesmith will likely see an increased workload.
Brown (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Heat, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Brown has missed the last two games due to a sprained right ankle and it remains unclear if he'll be able to return Sunday. If he can't go, Aaron Nesmith and others will see extra run.
Brown (ankle) is ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls.
Brown will miss Friday's game while recovering from a right ankle sprain. Celtics general manager Danny Ainge recently hinted that he could return as early as Sunday's contest against Miami. In any case, Evan Fournier should start at small forward as long as Brown remains sidelined.
Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said he doesn't expect Brown (ankle) to return to the lineup until Sunday's game against the Heat, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
The Celtics are next scheduled to play Friday against the Bulls, but it's unlikely that Brown will be ready for that game while he continues to recover from the right ankle sprain he suffered late in Boston's May 2 loss to Portland. Assuming Brown is out Friday for a second straight game, Evan Fournier should stick in the starting five at small forward.
Brown (ankle) will not be available for Wednesday's game at Orlando, CBS Boston reports.
While the wing could miss a game or two in the short term, coach Brad Stevens downplayed the severity of Brown's sprained ankle, which occurred late in Sunday's loss to the Trail Blazers when he collided with Jayson Tatum along the sideline. Tatum will be available Wednesday, while Boston is considering Brown "very much day-to-day," per Stevens.
Brown collided with Jayson Tatum late in Sunday's loss to the Blazers and appeared to injure his right leg, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.
The collision occurred along the sideline as Brown and Tatum converged to attempt to trap Norman Powell. Brown's right leg appeared to contact Tatum's left leg, and both players were in obvious pain. Brown was helped to the Celtics' locker room by two staffers, while Tatum also exited the game.
Brown (ankle) will be available for Sunday's game against the Blazers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Brown emerged from Friday's overtime win over the Spurs with a sprained right ankle, and while he likely won't be at 100 percent, the star wing will be available Sunday night. Brown saw 44 minutes of action Friday but had one of his worst games of the season, as he hit just five of 24 field-goal attempts en route to 17 points. He did tack on five boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks, however.
Brown (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Portland.
Brown is dealing with a right ankle sprain, which appears to be a new injury. The ankle issue could help explain his 5-for-24 shooting debacle against the Spurs in his last outing Friday. If Brown can't play Sunday, Grant Williams and Romeo Langford could see increased minutes.
Brown compiled 38 points (13-23 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and a block across 37 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Hornets.
Brown was coming off a 39-point effort the last time out, and he's now recorded at least 35 points in three of his last five games. Even though he's missed three games over the last two weeks, Brown has been absolutely dominant when on the court and should be an elite fantasy asset throughout the rest of the campaign. He's scored at least 20 points in nine straight games, topping the 30-point mark four times in that stretch.
Brown dropped 39 points (13-26 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 9-9 FT), 11 rebounds, four steals and three assists over 38 minutes during Tuesday's 119-115 loss to the Thunder.
Brown was one of three Celtics players to collect four or more steals, as they finished with 16 swipes as a team. With Kemba Walker (side) and Jayson Tatum (ankle) out, Brown put the team on his shoulders, as he and Payton Pritchard were the only two players to score more than 14 points. Over his last eight games, Brown is averaging 28.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals per contest.
Brown registered 20 points (8-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's 125-104 loss to the Hornets.
The 24-year-old played his usual 30-plus minutes in his return to the starting lineup after missing two straight games due to left shoulder bursitis. Brown, who made his first-ever All-Star team this season, is averaging career highs in points, assists, steals, blocks and three-pointers through 54 games. The fifth-year forward will look to help the Celtics get back in the win column Tuesday at home against the Thunder.
Brown (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Hornets, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
After two missed games due to a shoulder injury, Brown will return to the court and presumably start Sunday's game. This month, he's averaged 24.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 34.6 minutes.
Brown (shoulder) is out for Friday's contest against the Nets.
Left shoulder bursitis will keep Brown out for a second straight game. However, Evan Fournier (COVID-19 protocols) will be making his return, so that should help fill in some minutes.
Brown (shoulder) will not play Thursday against Phoenix.
Brown had been listed as doubtful, so it's not a big surprise that he has officially been ruled out. It will mark just his sixth absence of the season, though he has missed two of the last three games.
Brown is doubtful for Thursday's matchup against the Suns due to shoulder bursitis, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Brown has generally been healthy all season, as Thursday's presumed absence would mark just his sixth missed game. If he's out, more minutes would be available for Grant Williams, Romeo Langford and Semi Ojeleye.
Brown registered 23 points (10-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 37 minutes during Monday's loss to the Bulls.
The 24-year-old played his usual 30-plus minutes in his return to the starting lineup after missing a game due to a non-COVID illness. Brown put together a nice five-game stretch before missing Saturday's game, averaging 28.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.4 three-pointers, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks in that span. The fifth-year guard will look to keep it rolling Thursday at home against the Suns.
Brown (illness) will be available for Monday's game against Chicago, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
An illness landed Brown on the initial injury report, but he's since been removed and will return to action after missing Saturday's win over the Warriors. In his last appearance Thursday against the Lakers, Brown went for 40 points, nine boards, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes.
Brown (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bulls.
Brown sat out Saturday's contest due to a non-COVID illness, but he has a chance to return Monday. If he's unable to suit up against Chicago, Romeo Langford, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams could see increased run for Boston.
