Some Jaylen Brown news that has nothing to do with trades: during the team’s Monday post-practice press conference, head coach Ime Udoka revealed that the All-Star Boston Celtics forward will miss between one and two weeks with his hamstring injury, tweaked in a blowout win of the Miami Heat last week.

Brown has had hamstring issues several times in the past, so the Celtics have been proceeding with an abundance of caution to avoid exacerbating the notoriously tricky soft tissue problem. Exceedingly easy to reinjure, a cautious approach to allow the hamstring to fully heal is a wise one, particularly given Boston’s schedule gets increasingly difficult as the month progresses.

While it might not seem like good news, that the injury was not more severe is indeed a positive outcome as there is to be had in such situations, given players can miss several more weeks or even months in severe cases.
