But he went through Boston’s practice Thursday without any limitations and only sported a small bandage on his hand rather than the large wrap he donned after a laceration from a glass vase caused Brown to receive five stitches.
Brown has been a consistent force for the Celtics this season and losing him for any amount of time for the NBA playoffs wouldn’t be ideal for Boston. But that won’t be the case, as head coach Joe Mazzulla confirmed to reporters that Brown will be good to go for Game 1 on Saturday and won’t have any restrictions.
Brown and the Celtics are set to welcome the Atlanta Hawks to town for Game 1 of their best-of-seven series. Tip-off from TD Garden is set for 3:30 p.m. ET.
