NEW YORK – – Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown missed Thursday night's 109-98 Celtics prevail upon the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center with a right adductor strain, a physical issue that could make him miss “possibly 14 days,” per Celtics mentor Joe Mazzulla.
“I expect it being short,” Mazzulla said before the game, when asked how long Brown – – who was precluded barely an hour and a half before tip – – would be sidelined.
“Most likely up to 14 days.”
Brown, who scored 41 focuses in Boston's home win over New Orleans on Wednesday night, told columnists thereafter he'd changed his crotch and that he would have it looked at.
Mazzulla said Brown attempted to get ready to play Thursday yet was considered unfit to go.
“I don't know what the timetable is,” Mazzulla said. “I realize he attempted to try it out today and couldn't do it. We'll know more the two or three days, perceive how he answers.”
Mazzulla said he thought there was an arrangement for Brown to finish imaging on the injury.
Brown, 26, is averaging vocation highs in the two focuses (27.2 per game) and field objective rate (49.8%) this season for Boston, which entered Thursday's down against Brooklyn with the NBA's best record.
“Everyone is supposed to accomplish other things and everyone needs to move forward,” Earthy colored's co-star in Boston, Jayson Tatum, said postgame. “Folks get a greater amount of an open door and just received to make the most in return.
“Clearly we really want him to get to where we need to get to, however wellbeing is generally significant and we've quite recently got to hold it down until he gets back.”
Prior Thursday, Brown came in fourth for a second consecutive week in the deciding in favor of backcourt spots for the Eastern Meeting for the following month's Elite player Game in Salt Lake City, following Nets watch Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers monitor Donovan Mitchell and Philadelphia 76ers monitor James Solidify.
In the mean time, Tatum is managing his own physical issue issues. After Tatum wrapped up with 20 focuses on 7-for-22 shooting against the Nets, he was gotten some information about a few revolting looking misses on bounce shots all through Thursday's down, and on the off chance that it had a say in tired legs given it was on the second evening of a one after the other.
“No,” he said happily. “On the off chance that you take a gander at my hand, I have tape on my wrist, tape on my thumb, this evening I needed to tape my center finger and ring finger together.
“I got a great deal of s- – – going on. Yet, you know, that had an influence, simply waiting things and it was awkward this evening. In any case, I love to play a lot to sit out. In this way, definitely, I had a few terrible misses, however I would prefer to be out there attempting to assist my group with winning than not.
