Boston Celtics SG Jaylen Brown (ankle) is likely to play Tuesday vs. the Houston Rockets, coach Brad Stevens confirmed Monday. Brown has been dealing with injuries to both ankles and didn’t practice Monday. He missed last week’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, but was fine for Sunday’s win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, scoring 17 points in 34 minutes.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Boston Celtics SG Jaylen Brown

Brown is going to play, so there’s not much for us to go over here. As long as Brown is healthy, the Celtics will have their full cast of characters for Tuesday vs. the Rockets. Boston has been using a very short rotation with every starter playing over 30+ minutes on Sunday. Marcus Smart, Enes Kanter and Brad Wanamaker get the most minutes off the bench, but aren’t strong DFS or season-long options at this point. Until injuries pop up again, it’s the Core 4 for the Celtics.
