Coming into this week, there was a slight chance that Jaylen Brown could return on Tuesday versus the Indiana Pacers.

But now that looks like it was wishful thinking as Brown was officially ruled out for the contest by the Celtics Monday as the swingman will miss his fourth straight game due to a right hamstring strain. It will be the 14th game Brown has missed this season.

Brown suffered the injury late in Boston’s collapse to the Brooklyn Nets on March 3, but three days later he said the ailment was feeling better and that he was eyeing a return to the court as soon as early this week. With Brown, who is averaging 20.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game this season, out for the matchup in Indiana, he could now possibly come back either Thursday in Milwaukee versus the Bucks or Friday when the Celtics host the Washington Wizards.

Robert Williams, who has played in four games since returning from a hip edema, is probable to play versus the Pacers despite a back strain that he sustained in Sunday’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
