#NEBHInjuryReport update: Jaylen Brown will likely miss 1-2 weeks with a right hamstring strain, according to Coach Udoka.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 8, 2021
Brown suffered the injury last week against the Miami Heat (7-3). Brown missed their next game against the Dallas Mavericks (6-4).
Green is off to a great start this season, putting up a career-high 25.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists on 49.3 percent shooting from the field over the first eight games of the season. Brown is also leading the Celtics in scoring thus far into the season.
According to League insider Shams Charania, the Celtics have reportedly expressed interest in Ben Simmons, and while trade talks have been fluid, the asking price remains high. Charania reported that Brown would have to be involved in any package where Simmons gets traded.
The Celtics return to the court Wednesday, playing in the crib against the Raptors (6-5).
