Jaylen Brown scored a team-high 15 points to help lead Team World to a victory in the 2017 NBA Africa Game. Brown showcased his incredible athleticism on multiple occasions, including a remarkable finish on a whirling drive in the fourth quarter (link below). He also added three rebounds and three assists, but did commit six turnovers and was just 2-of-5 from the free-throw stripe. Still, we saw glimpses of the upside that has Celtics fans so excited about this kid's future. With Avery Bradley traded away, Brown could see a significant jump in playing time next season if he shows he can handle heavy minutes at shooting guard.

Jaylen Brown said he's been working more on his ball-handling and hopes to make his teammates better next season. He also talked about growing as a scorer. "I’ve made strides to be able to score at different levels," he said. "I don’t want to just be a catch-and-shoot guy. I want to improve my overall arsenal." The Celtics lost one of their better ball-handlers in Avery Bradley, so it's possible Brown is asked to pick up some of that slack along with Gordon Hayward. Brown is a candidate to start at shooting guard and the things he's working on suggests he is gunning for that role.

Jaylen Brown (quad) is likely to be shut down for the rest of Las Vegas Summer League. There's no reason for the Celtics to play Brown, who has a bruised right quad from his action on Tuesday. Brown showed he can create his own shot and should be set to pick up some of Avery Bradley's minutes. With him out, there should be more minutes for Semi Ojeleye and Jabari Bird.

Jaylen Brown (bruised right quad), Abdel Nader (strained left calf) and Jayson Tatum (right patellar tendonitis) will not play Thursday against the Warriors. There was talk of the Celtics shutting down Brown, so this isn't surprising at all. The Summer Celtics were 3-0 and have one of the deepest rosters in Vegas, but now they'll have to go with some smaller lineups at the three today. Brown should have a decent chance to start at shooting guard in October and play minutes in the low 20s.

Jaylen Brown (right thigh bruise) said he could be shut down for the rest of the Vegas Summer League. He briefly played through a thigh bruise in Tuesday's game vs. Philly, but was ruled out at halftime. Brown said the issue isn't anything serious, but it makes sense for Boston to shut him down since he has nothing left to prove. Based on his comments, he should be fine in a week or two.

Jaylen Brown (right thigh bruise) will not return to Tuesday's Summer League game vs. the 76ers. Brown took a shot to the thigh and received treatment on the bench, and while he was able to return, the Celtics will hold him out for the second half as a precaution. He finished with seven points (2-of-7 FGs), five boards, one assist, two blocks and a triple in 13 minutes. Brown has been phenomenal this summer and doesn't have much left to prove, so don't be surprised if they hold him out next game.

Jaylen Brown dunked over two would-be Blazers defenders on Sunday for a few of his 13 points, adding two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes. Check the link below for the dunk, which will be hard to top in Vegas this week. Boston has an abundance of talent at SF with Gordon Hayward, Jae Crowder, Brown, and rookie Jayson Tatum, so it'll be hard for Brown to make a fantasy impression this season. That said, he's just 20 years old.
