C's update Jaylen Brown's status for Friday vs. Lakers


The Boston Celtics might have Jaylen Brown back in the lineup when they host the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Brown, who hasn't played since Nov. 4 due to a hamstring injury was upgraded to questionable on the team's latest injury report.

C's big man Robert Williams also is questionable with left knee tendinopathy, which forced him to miss the second half of Monday's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers and all of Wednesday's loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Lakers could have a star of their own back in the fold for the anticipated matchup. LeBron James is questionable with a rectus abdominis strain while Anthony Davis is probable with a right thigh contusion.

Celtics-Lakers tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday night on NBC Sports Boston.
