Celtics give positive update on Brown's injury ahead of Warriors game


The Boston Celtics have not officially said if Jaylen Brown will play in Thursday night's NBA Finals rematch against the Golden State Warriors at TD Garden, but they did give a positive update on the veteran guard Wednesday.

Brown has missed Boston's last three games with right adductor tightness, but he went through a full practice Wednesday and his status for Thursday night is TBD, per head coach Joe Mazzulla.

The 26-year-old veteran also spoke after practice and provided an encouraging update on his progress:

Here's a video of Brown getting in some post-practice work:

Brown is averaging career highs with 27.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He's also shooting a career-best 49.8 percent from the field and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. He deserves to be an All-Star this season and also has a strong case to start in the game. 

The Celtics lost 123-107 to the Warriors in Golden State last month, and Brown scored a team-high 31 points in that game. Thursday's game in Boston is the final Celtics-Warriors matchup of the regular season.
