Injury statuses of Brown, Tatum, Kemba for Celtics-Magic game originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The bad news: The Boston Celtics will be without an All-Star in Orlando on Wednesday night. The good news: They won't be down two All-Stars.

Jaylen Brown is listed as out with a right ankle sprain for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, per the team. Tristan Thompson also won't play due to a left pectoral strain, but Jayson Tatum isn't on the injury report after colliding with Brown in the final minute of Sunday's loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Brown appeared to get the worst of his collision with Tatum, and head coach Brad Stevens recently confirmed the 24-year-old won't play against the Magic. But Stevens considers Brown "very much day-to-day" after Wednesday's game, so there's a chance he could return Friday or Sunday against the Miami Heat.

Forsberg: Celtics facing mounting headwinds as playoffs loom

Tatum practiced fully Tuesday, so it appears he avoided serious injury from the scary moment. The Celtics also will have Kemba Walker back after the point guard missed four games due to a strained oblique.

The C's have battled injuries and COVID-related absences all season and rarely have had their team at full strength. The injuries to Brown and Thompson don't appear to be serious, though, so if Boston can get by Orlando on Wednesday, there's a chance we could see a fully healthy C's roster in the near future.

UPDATE (5:08 p.m. ET): The Celtics also have ruled out Romeo Langford due to concussion protocol.
