The Celtics gain Brown, lose Morris for road game in Sacramento

NBA: Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics released their now routinely long list of injured players ahead of the team’s game in Sacramento on Sunday. Jaylen Brown is listed as probable to return from his concussion, while Marcus Morris will miss the game with a sprained right ankle.

Morris hurt his ankle during Friday’s win in Portland and proceeded to score 30 points and hit a dagger three to give the Celtics the win. There’s no information regarding his timetable for return just yet, but I suspect Brad Stevens will give one during pregame discussions with reporters.

Brown has not played since taking a scary fall after a dunk a few weeks ago in Minnesota. He has missed six games with Boston going 3-3 in that span. It’s definitely a positive that the Celtics can regain a starter as they try to finish out the regular season on a high note given their depleted rotation.

The Celtics and Kings tip off in Sacramento at 6 p.m. EST.
