Hospital Cs flirting with a comeback as Jaylen may sit with foot injury
It's a good thing the Boston Celtics have a lot of depth; it's already becoming clear they'll need it.
After getting Aron Baynes back from a hamstring injury this week, the Celts lost big man Daniel Theis for several weeks with a tear to his plantar fascia, only to see Jaylen Brown have a similar injury emerge.
Jaylen Brown says his sore right foot is "sort of like a plantar (fascia)" injury. He says the pain began to surface about a week ago. He's questionable for tonight.
No specifics on how severe or exactly what the problem is, but it's the right move to play it safe in the regular season with these sort of connective tissue injuries, as they can become a longer-term problem if not given the time to heal properly.
#NEBHInjuryReport: Jaylen Brown says his foot is feeling “a lot better,” but a decision on whether or not he’ll play tonight won’t be made until pregame.
