Jaylen Brown (return from injury management) – OUT
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) December 2, 2021
In the eight games since Brown’s return from his hamstring injury he suffered earlier on the season, he has played well, making a solid case for another All-Star bid averaging 21.4 points per game and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 46.3 percent from the field on the season.
The Celtics are currently 12-10, good for eighth in the Eastern Conference, and will be beginning their five-game road trip out west in which they face a gauntlet of some of the best teams in the Western Conference, including games against the Jazz and the Suns.
