Lastest Boston Celtics injury news ahead of Grizzlies clash with super star now confirmed injured

Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown is marked as questionable in the team’s injury report for the upcoming game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. Brown is contending with a right adductor strain, and his availability for the game remains uncertain.


The uncertainty surrounding Brown’s status follows his recent criticism of the NBA In-Season Tournament court used during the game against the Toronto Raptors. Describing the floor as “unacceptable,” Brown hinted at a potential injury incurred during the match. Given that other players have also raised concerns about the tournament courts, the league is expected to monitor the situation closely.


The Celtics are set to face the struggling Memphis Grizzlies on the road, and if Brown is unable to play, the team will need a collective effort from the entire roster, particularly around Jayson Tatum.

Brown has been a pivotal force in the Celtics’ successful season, currently averaging 22.9 points per game with a 47.2 percent field goal and 37.8 percent three-point shooting. Contributing five rebounds per contest, Brown forms a formidable duo with Tatum, making them one of the NBA’s standout pairs capable of leading the Celtics to victory.


The team remains hopeful that Brown’s injury is not severe, emphasizing a cautious approach to his recovery. Prioritizing player well-being, the Celtics are unlikely to risk further injury by rushing Brown back into play before he is fully ready.


If Brown is deemed fit to play, Boston is expected to handle the struggling Grizzlies without much difficulty. Nonetheless, the team remains focused on Brown’s health and will proceed accordingly, considering the long-term impact on the season.
