Jaylen Brown is just one game away — and he intends to play in it.
The Celtics guard tried to “push through” a pair of ankle sprains before suffering a left calf contusion in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s loss to the Houston Rockets. Brown, however, is listed as “probable” for Boston’s final game before the NBA All-Star break against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday, per Wednesday’s injury report.
