Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown wasn't able to finish Thursday night's road game against the Miami Heat because of a hamstring injury.

Brown appeared to bother his hamstring on a play in the third quarter:

"(Brown) had some tightness in his hamstring," Celtics head coach Ime Udoka told reporters after Boston's 95-78 win. "He has a little history of some stuff over there, so we wanted to be cautious. He'll get checked out and we'll know more tomorrow."

It's unknown if Brown will miss any games with this hamstring issue. He was unable to play in the Celtics' win over the Houston Rockets on Oct. 24 due to left patella tendinopathy in his left knee.

UPDATE (Friday, Nov. 5, 6 p.m. ET): Brown has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Dallas Mavericks due to right hamstring tightness, per the Celtics.

Brown has played fantastic for the Celtics this season. He's averaging a team-leading 26.9 points per game on a career-best 50.7 percent shooting.

The Celtics' next game is Saturday night against the Mavericks in Dallas.
