Boston Celtics’ swingman Jaylen Brown is recovering from a left wrist surgery that caused him to miss the last part of the 2020-21 season.
Brown sat down with Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, and talked on the current state of his rehab ahead of the Boston Celtics’ training camp.
“My wrist has been healing. Some days it’s better than others. I got to continue to push and work, but I’m excited to be there for camp,” Brown said. And I’m excited to be there with my teammates, and start to build, and start this journey, man. I missed a lot of time, so I’m looking at the season like I’m ready. I want to play. I’m ready.
We started back so quickly [last season]. I didn’t really have an [offseason]. I was dreading coming into training camp, like, ‘Oh, man.’ I was already hurting. I had a good season, but my body barely kept up. So, this year I think I’ll be a lot better in that category,” the Celtics’ forward concluded.
Last year, Brown himself had the best season of his career when he was healthy, averaging a career-high 24.7 points while adding 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.
After a disappointing ending to their 2020-21 season campaign, Boston is hoping to bounce back this year, and Brown, alongside Jayson Tatum, will play a huge role in that case.
