Celtics' Jaylen Brown suffers sprained thumb vs. Pistons


Jaylen Brown's status is up in the air for the Boston Celtics-Milwaukee Bucks matchup on Thursday night.

The Celtics swingman revealed he suffered a sprained right thumb in Wednesday's loss to the Detroit Pistons, but he didn't seem overly concerned about the injury.

"It happened in the middle of the game. I just ran into Markieff [Morris] – my thumb," Brown told reporters. "So we’ll see. I don’t think it’s too bad."
