The Boston Celtics’ playoff aspirations took a major blow on Monday.
All-Star guard Jaylen Brown has been diagnosed with a torn scapholunate ligament in his left wrist and will require season-ending surgery.
#NEBHInjuryReport This past weekend Celtics forward Jaylen Brown was diagnosed with a torn scapholunate ligament in his left wrist. Brown is expected to have the torn ligament surgically repaired later this week, and will be out for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.
Brown had missed the Celticcs’ last two games against the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat.
Boston lost both of those matchups and is currently the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Celtics will have a hard time making a playoff run without Brown, as the team is just 5-5 without him this season.
Brown made his first All-Star team during the 2020-21 season and was averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game while shooting 48.4 percent from the field.
