Jaylen Brown    F  Celtics

 

 

Jaylen Brown scored 26 points during a 124-118 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He ditched the goggles and he lit it up for his first 20-point game since Nov. 20. Brown had been fairly consistent this month, averaging 13.0 points, 4.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.4 treys in his previous December games, but this was his first strong showing. He still really needs to up his free throw shooting as he came into this game at just 59.4 percent, but Brown should be able to climb into the top 100 if he can get that fixed.

Jaylen Brown scored 15 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Spurs on Friday. He did have some Rec Spec-esque goggles in this loss, and he did like them. Brown said his vision with the goggles is clearer than it was with contacts, and said it almost looks 3-D -- yes, he's a quote machine. One area Brown has struggled to see may be the free throw line with his 59.1 percent, which has really torpedoed his fantasy value. Maybe he'll improve and he was at 68.5 percent last year.

Brown will start at shooting guard against the Spurs on Friday. As expected, Brown is back in the Celtics' starting lineup after missing Wednesday's win over Dallas due to inflammation in his right eye. He'll take the spot of Marcus Smart, who will shift back to a bench role. Brown, who will wear protective goggles for the next few games as precaution, is averaging 14.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game this season.

Brown (eye) will play Friday against the Spurs, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. Brown was held out of Wednesday's win over Dallas due to inflammation in his right eye, but it's apparently under control, and he's expected to be back in the starting lineup Friday. The second-year wing, who's averaging 14.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game on the year, will wear protective goggles for roughly the next week.

Brown (eye) is listed as questionable for Friday's matchup with the Spurs, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports. Brown was surprisingly held out of Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies with what was listed as an inflamed right eye. It's unclear how well it's progressed to this point, but the Celtics will wait until at least Friday's morning shootaround before making a determination on his availability. If Brown is held out, Marcus Smart would likely start at again, while Terry Rozier would benefit with more minutes off the bench.

Brown is dealing with an inflamed right eye and will be sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. The injury is non-basketball related, so he apparently did not suffer it in practice. While Brown is out, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier will likely see expanded roles. Brown should be considered day-to-day following Wednesday's contest.

Jaylen Brown (inflamed right eye) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. Marcus Smart figures to shift into the starting unit tonight sans Brown, and with Marcus Morris (knee) also unavailable, Jayson Tatum could be forced into heavy minutes. Both Smart and Tatum make sense in DFS with a favorable matchup against Dallas, as does Kyrie Irving as he should be very busy on the offensive end. Given this is just an eye issue, we'd expect Brown back in action for Friday's game in San Antonio.

Brown eked out two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one steal, while turning the ball over four times, in 22 minutes during Thursday's 108-97 win over the 76ers. This is Brown's second bad game after missing Saturday's match-up for personal reasons. Luckily for Boston, they have enough depth where they don't need youngsters Brown and Jayson Tatum to star every night. Of a larger concern is Brown's poor free throw shooting. Over his past five games, Brown has shot a lowly 40% from the charity stripe. Overall, hopefully Brown will return to his mid-November form soon. He'll have a good chance to bounce back during Saturday night's home game versus Phoenix.
