The Boston Celtics have been without their co-star due to hamstring tightness. Jaylen Brown missed more time than anticipated and is finally ready to make his return against the Houston Rockets.
The Celtics offense has struggled in Brown’s absence and his return alongside the team’s improved play could be the start of something big.
Although Brown will likely be limited, a matchup against the lowly Rockets is a great opportunity to shake off the rust and test the limits of his injured leg.
It could also prove to be a good test to see how Brown fits along the current makeup of the team who has currently won seven of their last ten games.
Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schroder in particular have really carried the offensive load and Jaylen Browns return should provide some much needed relief.
