Boston Celtics will get Jaylen Brown back for tonight’s contest against the Houston Rockets. Brown has missed the last eight games while nursing a hamstring strain.

The news were first reported by Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes. The team currently sits in the ninth place in the East at 9-8, and they will conclude a four-game homestand on Wednesday when they host the Brooklyn Nets.

Brown has managed to further elevate his game throughout his eight appearances this year. He is averaging 25.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.

The explosive forward has played in the game against the Miami Heat on October 29 before he got injured. Despite his absence, the Celtics have gone 5-3. Now, with Brown healthy, they are hoping to add to their two-game winning streak.
