Celtics All-Star Jaylen Brown has been ruled for the season with a torn ligament in his left wrist. Brown already missed the past three games after colliding with Jayson Tatum last week against Portland.
The total tally of missed games for Brown this season sits at 14, as he’s has trouble with various injuries throughout the year. Brown is expected to undergo surgery later this week. He averaged a career high of 24.7 points per game in 2021, as well as a 48% field goal percentage. A season to remember for Jaylen, though it did not end in the way he hoped.
The loss of Jaylen Brown just adds to the long list of problems for the Boston Celtics this season. They have yet to have their full strength lineup together at once, and they never will, with the news of Brown surfacing. Smart, Tatum, Fournier, Walker, Williams, among others, have struggled to stay healthy this season. Currently, the Celtics are slotted into the 7th seed, meaning they will participate in the new play-in tournament. It’s safe to say that Celtics fans are not too optimistic about the inevitable conclusion of the 2020-2021 campaign.
