BOSTON - Boston Celtics’ wing Jaylen Brown will miss Thursday night’s matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks due to a sore right foot. Brown was listed as questionable as of Thursday morning’s shootaround, but head coach Brad Stevens confirmed that he will not play tonight.

“If he were available to play, he would play,” said Stevens during his pregame press conference. “Our medical team always makes those decisions. If he’s sore at all, I think it’s a prudent decision.”

Stevens said that he has not decided who will start in Brown’s place, but the 22-year-old will be day-to-day moving forward.

The Celtics and Bucks tip off on Thursday night at 8:00 PM EST from TD Garden.
