Celtics' Jaylen Brown looks unrecognizable with new haircut

Celtics' Jaylen Brown looks unrecognizable with new haircut

With a new season and a fresh start, Jaylen Brown got himself a fresh haircut to match.

Brown took to Instagram on Thursday to show off his new look. The Boston Celtics forward cut off his flat top, and he looks almost unrecognizable.

Check it out below:

While some C's fans may disapprove of Brown's decision to cut his hair, his former teammate Isaiah Thomas is a big fan of the change. The ex-Celtics guard reacted to Brown's haircut with a couple of hilarious comments.

Brown will be key to the Celtics' success this season as they look to prove they're capable of making a run without Kyrie Irving leading the charge. The 22-year-old benefitted from a unique opportunity to build chemistry over the summer with new C's teammate Kemba Walker along with Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum during the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

Celtics camp is set to get underway next week, with the regular season tipping off Oct. 23 vs. the Philadelphia 76ers.

Isaiah Thomas jokingly vows to never play defense again after thumb injury

Isaiah Thomas jokingly vows to never play defense again after thumb injury

Isaiah Thomas' latest attempt to return to NBA stardom suffered a setback this week when he suffered a thumb injury, which is expected to keep him sidelined for six to eight weeks.

The veteran point guard, who signed with the Washington Wizards in July, tweeted Wednesday he suffered the injury playing defense. 

You have to give Thomas credit for injecting a little humor into what is obviously a difficult situation for him.

Thomas quickly became a beloved figure in Boston despite his short tenure with the Celtics. He suffered a hip injury playing for the C's during the 2016-17 season, and he was dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston in August of 2017. Thomas has struggled to stay healthy and regain his All-Star form since that trade, and the the Wizards will be his fourth team since leaving Boston.

It's safe to say the basketball world is rooting hard for Thomas to make a successful comeback from his latest injury.

Isaiah Thomas out 6 to 8 weeks after latest injury for ex-Celtics star

Isaiah Thomas out 6 to 8 weeks after latest injury for ex-Celtics star

Isaiah Thomas just can't seem to stay healthy since leaving the Boston Celtics two years ago.

Thomas underwent left thumb surgery Wednesday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks as he recovers, the Washington Wizards announced.

Thomas suffered the injury -- a rupture of the radial collateral ligament in his thumb -- during "routine workouts" Monday, according to the team.

It's another tough break for the 30-year-old point guard, who's appeared in a total of 76 games over the last three seasons due to a nagging hip injury that required surgery last March.

Thomas' hip injury, which he sustained during his career season for the Celtics in 2016-17, essentially derailed his career to date, as he's bounced between the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets since then.

Thomas finally appeared healthy after signing with the Wizards in July, but it appears his Washington debut will have to wait. The Celtics' first matchup with the Wizards isn't until Nov. 13 -- exactly eight weeks from Wednesday -- so there's a chance Thomas can return for a Boston reunion.
