Jaylen Brown put up 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and two threes in 39 minutes on Monday vs. the Bucks.
Brown came out aggressive again tonight and ended the game having made 5-of-11 field goals and all four of his free throws. He's seemingly turned a corner in the playoffs and is looking more confident in his role. The Celtics could very well shake up this roster over the summer, so Brown's role could greatly expand or shrink.

Jaylen Brown was one of the few Celtics who played well in Tuesday's Game 2, scoring 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting while adding six rebounds and three assists.
Brown has outplayed all of the Celtics' wings this series so far and has shown a strong ability to finish in the paint and on the fastbreak which has been vital for the Celtics' offense. He got Nikola Mirotic out of the game within three minutes by drawing two quick fouls and that's a matchup that coach Stevens is sure to look to exploit in the next contest as well.

Jaylen Brown went 8-of-14 from the field to deliver 19 points and three 3-pointers in Sunday's Game 1 win over the Bucks.
Brown was one of several Celtics to have strong shooting days as they went 54.0 percent from the field as a team. Boston shot a little too well from the midrange to expect that sort of number to last, but it's clear that they have an effective gameplan in place to neutralize the Bucks. Brown's hit the jets in the second half of the season and doesn't look to be slowing down in the playoffs.

Jaylen Brown scored 13 points with six boards, an assist and two 3-pointers in Sunday's 110-106 win against the Pacers.
Yet again the Celtics walked away with a win after the game being close until the end. Brown saw 27 minutes in this one and was efficient with his touches as he was 5-for-9 from the field with only one turnover. He was also one of seven Celtics in double-figures, something that needs to continue for them if they want to beat Milwaukee next round.

Jaylen Brown was a man possessed Friday night as he scored 23 points on 8-of-9 shooting adding seven rebounds, four threes and one block.
Indiana had no answer for the third-year swingman who got whatever he wanted and finally took advantage of his opportunity to start for the injured Marcus Smart. Brad Stevens remained patient after Brown struggled in the first two games of the series and was rewarded with a big night as Boston looks to sweep Indiana on Sunday.

Jaylen Brown will take Marcus Smart's (hip) place in the starting lineup in Game 1 vs. the Pacers.
Marcus Smart will be missing at least the first two rounds of the playoffs and it was expected that Brad Stevens would roll with Brown. The Celtics will likely be going with Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Aron Baynes to start the series vs. the Pacers.

Jaylen Brown (back spasms) scored 15 points on 6-for-13 shooting with three boards, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in Tuesday's season finale victory against the Wizards.
Brown only ended up playing 18 minutes in this one as the Celtics want him fresh for the playoffs. After a disappointing start to the season Brown slowly turned things around. He's going to finish right around top-180 in both 8 and 9-cat formats and gets a boost to his total value thanks to his 74 games played. It was extremely tough to trust Brown when the Celtics were healthy, but as they thinned out at times, Brown stepped into a larger role nicely. We'll see if he remains on the team for next year, or if the Celtics move him in an effort to bring in another superstar this summer.

Jaylen Brown (back spasms) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.
Brown had better play, since the Celtics have only six guys on the roster who aren't on the injury report. Assuming he does, Brown will be a great fantasy option with so many shots available.

This isn't an official injury update for the availability of Jaylen Brown (back spasms), Al Horford (left knee soreness) or Terry Rozier (illness). It does seem likely that they will be ruled in later in the day, however. Stay tuned for updates on this front.

Jaylen Brown (back spasms) has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable ahead of Friday's game versus the Heat.
Brown participated in some non-contact drills during morning shootaround and will see how he feels before ruling himself out of tonight's game. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said Brown's health has improved, but it still wouldn't be a shock if Brown takes the cautious approach with playoffs around the corner.
