Brown will come off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.
With Marcus Smart (illness) back active and in the starting lineup, Brown will head back to his usual role off the bench after a spot start Monday. Brown was impressive in the outing, scoring 22 points to go along with six rebounds in 32 minutes, but he will still likely see a slight reduction in playing time coming off the bench Wednesday.
Brown finished with 22 points (9-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, two steals and a block in 32 minutes Monday against the Nets.
Brown now has four nights over 20 points in his past eight games. He's picked it up quite a bit after a horrific start to the season, but still struggles producing while in a smaller role than he had a year ago. Brown also isn't hitting nearly as many threes or contributing as much on the defensive end, and stands as a borderline play in standard formats as of now.
Brown will draw the start Monday against Brooklyn, Tom Westerholm of MassLive.com reports.
With Marcus Smart ruled out due to illness, Brown will enter the first unit and should slot in at shooting guard. He dropped 21 points in his last start against Dallas on Jan. 4 and draws a favorable matchup in Brooklyn.
Brown put up 22 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3PT, 6-8 FT) and recorded seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 29 minutes Wednesday against Indiana.
Brown was held to just four points in Boston's last game Monday against Brooklyn, but he responded with a stellar bench effort. He was one of his team's key contributors in a 135-108 victory, sinking 58.3 percent of his field goals and a pair of threes. Despite his bench role, Brown is averaging 28 minutes in his previous five games.
Brown scored a game-high 21 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding three steals, two rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Friday's 114-93 win over the Mavericks.
Thrust into the starting lineup due to Marcus Morris' neck injury, Brown hit for 20-plus points for the third time in the last eight games -- although he also has four games with 10 or less during that stretch. Morris may not be sidelined for long, so Brown could return to his bench role, and the erratic production that comes with it, soon enough.
