Jaylen Brown will not play in Tuesday’s Summer League game due to a hyperextended knee.
Well that’s not great, Bob. He looked nice and springy on Monday but this is the first we’ve heard of this and at this time of the year players take time off for precautionary reasons all the time. We’ll let you know if there is any reason to be worried.
Update: The Celtics are calling this a mild injury. “I don’t think it’s bad. It’s summer league. Anything like that, he doesn’t need to (push it),” said (assistant coach Micah) Shrewsberry, who is coaching the team during the Utah leg of the summer league schedule. “We have a lot of games left this summer. It’s kind of precautionary. Let him rest today, then we have another day off, and then he’ll be back.”
