It didn’t take long for Jaylen Brown to get back on the injury report, this time with a new ailment.
Brown is officially listed as questionable for the Boston Celtics matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night due to a right ankle sprain. Brown may have suffered the injury in Monday’s 139-107 win over the Los Angeles Lakers when he came up limping during the third quarter.

Jaylen Brown (right ankle sprain) - QUESTIONABLE
Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) - PROBABLE
Robert Williams (left hip bone edema) - OUT
The romp over the Lakers marked Brown’s return to action after a two-game absence due to a right thumb sprain. Before sitting out those two games, Brown had missed four other contests due to illness.
Brown, who is one of three Celtics players averaging at least 20 points, made an impact against the Lakers as a he not only put home a two-handed slam dunk over LeBron James early in the second half, but finished with 20 points, six assists, four rebounds and three steals.
Kemba Walker, who didn’t play Saturday in a loss to the Phoenix Suns, also appeared on the injury report, but he is probable to play versus the Grizzlies as he continues to nurse soreness in his left knee. Robert Williams is still out with a left hip bone edema and isn’t expected to return before the All-Star break.
