The Target Center fell to a complete silence Thursday night after a scary scene in the third quarter of the Boston Celtics’ matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Late in the third frame, Jaylen Brown evaded two Timberwolves defenders and threw down a thunderous dunk, but a loose grip on the rim resulted in a scary fall. Brown stiffened up as he lay on the floor and was attended to by the medical staff for several minutes.
A stretcher was brought onto the court after Brown’s apparent head injury, but the Celtics guard managed to walk back to the locker room under his own power and saluted the crowd on his way.
The NBA world quickly sent their regards to Brown after the second-year pro’s fall.
The Celtics announced Brown would remain out the rest of the game and was being evaluated for concussion-like symptoms.
