Details are few and far between on the nature of Jaylen Brown’s shoulder injury, other than it is not believed to be serious.
Brown popped up on the injury report with left shoulder bursitis following Monday’s loss to the Chicago Bulls. It was clear the Boston Celtics star was in some discomfort, although he did end up playing 37 minutes in the loss, pouring in 23 points.
He’s listed as doubtful for Thursday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, and in the morning, C’s president of basketball operations Danny Ainge shared what he knew.
?Yeah, I don?t know for sure,? Ainge said on 98.5 The Sports Hub. ?It looked like it was better yesterday, but it was just sore. I could see during the broadcast the other night that his shoulder was bothering him, and he made a move and he?s not sure if it?s just if he got hit or just stretched it out. But he?ll be alright in the next few days in my opinion.
?I?m not sure when exactly, but it was still sore yesterday. Hopefully he?s feeling better today.?
Tip from TD Garden for Celtics-Suns is set for 7 p.m. ET, with Brown unlikely to be in the lineup.
