BOSTON CelticsStar Jaylen BrownPlans to participate in Sunday's 1st Game against the Milwaukee BucksAs he struggles with a right hamstring strain.
Brown injured his ankle in the fourth game of the series against the Philadelphia Eagles. Brooklyn NetsTo be able to play, he needed to take time off from work and receive treatment in between series. Ime Udoka, Celtics coach, and Brad Stevens, president of the team, said this week that there was concern about Brown's injury during the next series.
Brown, after going through practice Saturday morning, stated that “It was important to have a couple of days off. So credit to us taking care to business so we can have this.” “I passed some tests, received some treatment, and should be ready for the next round.”
Brown has been fighting the issue throughout the season. Brown suffered the injury in November. It was a grade 1 strain. He missed eight games. When he returned to the field in December, he worked for five games before he stopped for five more to rest his hamstring.
The injury isn't quite as severe this time, but it's still an issue as the high-stakes series starts.
“When you have a lingering injury you need to be careful and cautious. Brown stated that he believes he is fine. “This one is at the lower end of this spectrum so I'll be fine.”
