The injury could shelve the Celtics leading scoring for a handful of games.

Jaylen Brown was ruled out for tonight’s game in Dallas and he could miss even more after suffering a right hamstring strain Thursday night against the Heat.

“He’s still getting assessed. We’ll know more tomorrow about severity and length of time. He’s had some tightness there and we’ll know more when he gets looked at today,” head coach Ime Udoka before the Mavericks game. “We’re being cautious. It’s something he’s dealt with in the past. I think he’s had three or so over the last four years, so it’s something that he’s dealt with before, but he’s also bounced back pretty quickly. It’s a little different with everybody. Depending on the grade of the strain, it could be anywhere from a week to two weeks.”

Two seasons ago, Brown was scheduled to miss a week of games with a hamstring injury back in March 2020, but before he could return, the season was suspended by COVID.

Thankfully, the Celtics will now have four days off before hosting the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.
