Celtics injury report: Jaylen Brown questionable to play vs. GSW


The Boston Celtics will be shorthanded when they host the Golden State Warriors at TD Garden on Saturday night.

Starting center Robert Williams (left knee soreness) and veteran guard Evan Fournier (health and safety protocols) already were ruled out Friday.

On Saturday afternoon, the C's updated the injury report to say Jaylen Brown is questionable to play versus the Warriors. Brown is dealing with an illness that is not COVID-19 related.

Brown scored 40 points on 17-for-20 shooting along with eight rebounds in the Celtics' 121-113 road win over the rival Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night. He's averaging a career-high 24.6 points per game this season.

The Warriors also won't be at full strength Saturday night. Superstar guard Klay Thompson has missed the entire season recovering from a torn Achilles, and 2020 No. 2 overall draft pick James Wiseman recently was ruled out for the remainder of the season after having knee surgery.
