Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown will not be available for the match against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday (18/01).

Brown is dealing with a thumb injury (sprained thumb) and will miss his second straight game, as he did not play against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.

The versatile guard got injured when he collided with Markieff Morris in the middle of Boston’s loss to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday.

Brown is averaging career highs in scoring (20.0), rebounding (6.9) and assists (2.3), while the Celtics are third in the East, at 27-13.
