After both missing the previous game against the Wizards, Amir Johnson (ankle) and Jaylen Brown (ankle) will try to play against the Hawks on Friday.
Johnson is relevant in 14-team leagues but is not consistent enough for 12-team consideration. The third overall pick, Brown has not received enough minutes to make an impact in fantasy this year. Avery Bradley (Achilles) did not travel with the team for Friday’s game, but he sent a text message to coach Brad Stevens saying he feels a lot better. He has a chance to return for Monday’s game against the Hornets.
UPDATE: Brown will be available against the Hawks. Johnson to start.
