Boston Celtics are expected to be cautious with Jaylen Brown, as the Cs’ superstar went down with a hamstring tightness during Boston’s 95-78 victory in Miami.
Brown did not play in the fourth quarter of the game. Ime Udoka did not have much of an update on his injury after the game.
“He has a little history of stuff over there, so we wanted to be cautious and get it checked out,” said Udoka, per CBS Boston. “We’ll know more [Friday].”
Brown’s status for Saturday night’s matchup with the Mavericks in Dallas is unclear, but the the Celtics will have three days off before their next game.
Brown is averaging a career-high 25.6 points per game off 49.3 percent shooting along with 6.1 rebounds this season.
