Jaylen Brown injury updates
Brown is off the injury report and is expected to play vs. the Knicks after being held out last game. The Celtics an unusual two-game skid though a lot of it has to do with players resting/out due to injury. The Celtics didn’t have Marcus Smart, Brown and Malcolm Brogdon in a loss to the Miami Heat on Tuesday.
With Brown expected to be back on Thursday, unless he’s given a minutes restriction, we can roll him out in all formats. We’ll see on Brogdon. If he returns, he could start in place of Payton Pritchard, who was in the lineup in place of Marcus Smart. Derrick White figures to stick as a starter at PG with Brown, Jayson Tatum, Robert Williams and either Brogdon or Grant Williams.
