Third-year Celtics guard Jaylen Brown suffered a scary fall against the Mavericks back on November 24th, and he has yet to play since. He missed the team’s win over the Pelicans on Monday along with last night’s rout of the Cavaliers, and it looks like he’ll be missing tonight’s game in Minneapolis as well.
The fall aggravated some back tightness that he experiences from time to time, though he says that this injury is a bit more intense than usual. “I have low-back tightness in general but never to this kind of level,” he said. He’s been experiencing back spasms but was able to shoot around yesterday in spite of them.
It looked for a while like he may be able to play in tonight’s matchup against the Timberwolves, but ultimately it looks like the Celtics will be playing it safe with the 22-year-old.
