• Jaylen Brown
    G/F, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown told NBC Sports Boston that he plans to be back in the lineup for Game 2 against the Sixers on Thursday.

    I’ll be back,” he said. “I’m playing.” Brown spent the hours leading up to Monday’s tip-off trying to convince the medical staff he was fit to play. He was eventually ruled out as there was some concern that he could re-aggravate it which could have led to a premature end of his season. The Celtics looked pretty comfortable without him in Game 1 but they could definitely use the 17.9 points he averaged during the first-round series against the Bucks.
