Jaylen Brown (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Brown returned to action in Monday's game against the Lakers after missing a couple of games with a sprained right thumb. The ankle injury is a new injury that was not reported on ahead of today, and it bears watching. Marcus Smart would likely be inserted back into the starting lineup should Brown be unable to play.

Jaylen Brown started on Monday and scored 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, six assists, three steals and two triples.
Brown shook off a thumb sprain and did his usual business tonight against the Lakers. He went 6-for-9 at the line which is a bit of regression, but overall he's expanded his game this season as shown by his top-60 value on the year. He's hitting .752 at the line on the year which has unlocked his fantasy potential in dynasty leagues.

Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) will be available to play for Monday's game against the Lakers.
Brown missed the last couple of games dealing with the thumb injury, but is good to go for this primetime matchup with the Lakers. Feel free to plug Brown, who has been a top-70 player in 9/8 cat leagues this season, back into all lineups.

Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) will not play on Saturday versus Phoenix.
Brown's scan showed no issues and he was close to playing so there is a decent chance he is back on Monday against the Lakers. He missed Thursday's game in which Marcus Smart filled in admirably with 24 points, five triples, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block so fire him up on Saturday as well.

Jaylen Brown is questionable for Saturday's tilt with the Suns due to a right thumb sprain.
We are left in a holding pattern with Brown for now. He should not miss too much time and could still play on Saturday. Check back closer to the game to figure out if he should be in your lineup. If he is out his usage will get spread throughout the lineup. Perhaps the rest will get Brown back on track as he had been in a slump before sustaining the injury on Wednesday.

Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) will sit out of Thursday's game against the Bucks.
It doesn't appear that Brown will miss an extended period of time with this injury. Their are no notable pickups with Brown being out as the Celtics will likely lean on the usual guys against the Bucks on Thursday. The Celtics next game will be on Saturday vs. the Suns.

Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) is questionable for Thursday's game with the Bucks.
Brown sustained the injury in last night's game but he still put up 24 points, 12 rebounds and four triples. If he's forced out of action it should mean more minutes for Marcus Smart but there won't really be any standard-league pickups barring a prolonged absence, which doesn't look likely.

Jaylen Brown was great on the boards and collected another double-double, posting a line of 24 points, 12 boards, two assists and four 3-pointers in Wednesday's 116-103 loss to the Pistons.
Brown is having a terrific season, already demonstrating fifth-round value and outplaying his ADP by about 100 spots. His out of position rebounds have really helped him form a nice all-around game both in real life and fantasy.

Jaylen Brown scored 19 points on 5-of-13 shooting while adding three boards, three assists and two steals on Monday.
Brown hit all nine of his free throws tonight and continues to display his improved efficiency at the line. He's knocking down .828 at the line on 4.8 attempts a game and is hitting a career-high .768 from the stripe on the season. He's putting up top-60 production and now that the inefficient shooting problems are gone, he can finally start to be considered an elite fantasy asset.

Jaylen Brown shot an inefficient 4-of-15 from the field enroute to 13 points in Saturday's win over the Pelicans.
Brown did not shot the ball well in this one as he shot around 25 percent. Unfortunately the poor shooting was in addition to his lack of production on the boards as he failed to grab a single one. The night was salvaged, however, as he was able to swipe three steals. Owners should remain aware that on any given night that one of the three Celtics backcourt may have the green light to shoot.

Jaylen Brown struggled mightily on Thursday night, making just two out of his 12 shots, scoring six points and grabbing five boards as the Celtics lost 109-98 to the Sixers.
Brown couldn't get going in this one and that was a huge reason the Celtics couldn't hold on. Gordon Hayward also struggled with eight points on 11 shots. Both should be around the top-50 for the season.

Jaylen Brown led the Celtics with 23 points (7-of-22 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), 12 rebounds, two 3s and one assist in Monday's loss to the Wizards.
The Celtics as a whole were a mess, collectively shooting .347 from the field. Brown has been playing well this season, so just chalk this up to a bad game and look for a rebound-performance soon.

Jaylen Brown scored 19 points (7-of-13) in Saturday's win over the Bulls, chipping in seven rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and committing four turnovers.
Brown continues to not only score the ball well but also provide off position production in boards, averaging seven per game for the season. With so many scoring options Brown is still able to contribute solidly for the team, solidifying his role on the team for the rest of the season.

Jaylen Brown (illness) looked fresh and ready on Friday as he chipped in 24 points (8-of-13 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs) with 10 rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer and two steals.
Brown has been awesome this season. And while he's been slowed here and there with minor injuries, the leap he's made has not gone unnoticed. He's a top-35 play in 9-cat so far and is showing no signs of regressing.
