Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown is questionable for tonight’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks with a sore right foot. At shootaround this morning, Brown gave an update on his injury:

Brown appeared to have injured his foot in closing quarter against the Detroit Pistons in the Celtics’ 108-105 victory on Tuesday. In reality, he merely aggravated it, stating that pain in his right foot “began to surface about a week ago.”

Although this is the 2018-19 season, the Hospital Celtics of yesteryear seem to be attempting a comeback. After Aron Baynes missed time with a hamstring injury, Daniel Theis is currently out indefinitely with a right plantar fascia tear. Brown’s potential absence with a plantar fascia injury of his own tonight would add to the list.

After a slow start to the season, Brown had two solid outings in the Boston’s home-and-home series against Detroit. In Saturday’s blowout victory, Brown posted a season-high 19 points while being a game-high +24 when on the floor. He followed that up with 14 points to go with 5 rebounds and 3 assists on Tuesday.

The 5-2 Celtics take on the 7-0 Milwaukee Bucks tonight at the TD Garden at 8 PM on TNT. We’ll know more about Brown’s condition for the game as we get closer to tip-off.
