Per Kurt Helin, Jaylen Brown is doubtful for Game 1:
Celtics’ Jaylen Brown doubtful for Game 1 vs. 76ers https://t.co/mzeQ4JkCG7— Kurt Helin (@basketballtalk) April 30, 2018
Brown injured his hamstring during Game 7 of the Celtics opening playoff series vs. the Milwaukee Bucks.
It will be a significant blow for the Celtics if Jaylen can’t go. He was having somewhat of a coming out party in the Celtics’ series vs. the Bucks, right up there with Al Horford as a difference-maker. At a time when the Celtics cannot afford anymore injuries, this really hampers their depth.
There is still time for recovery and upgrading, but “doubtful” leaves me feeling pretty grim if I’m a Celtics fan.
