Jaylen Brown was having himself a nice little stretch this season before hitting a bit of a road bump with injuries.

How big that bump ends up being is to be determined, but according to a report from The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach, there’s some hope that a crisis was averted after his collision with Jayson Tatum at the end of the Boston Celtics’ loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

“No official word on Jaylen Brown’s status from the Celtics but there is optimism that he avoided a significant injury,” Himmeslbach reported Monday.

Entering the game against Portland, Brown was questionable to play while dealing with a right ankle sprain before being upgraded to available.

But it was his other ankle that appeared to be injured while he got tangled up with Tatum.
