BOSTON — Jaylen Brown responded well to treatment on his hamstring tightness late in the week and will play in Game 1 of Celtics vs Bucks, with no Boston players listed on the team’s injury report. Brown averaged over 22 points per game in round one before closing out Game 4 through the tightness after Jayson Tatum fouled out. He’ll be cautious given the reoccurring nature of his hamstring ailments, but Ime Udoka confirmed at practice that Brown is feeling and looking good after several days with the strength staff. The ailment was lower-grade, Brown said.
Bobby Manning reports on Brown’s health, along with Robert Williams III’s efforts to get back into shape and Al Horford sporting a wrap on his left wrist at the final Celtics practice before Game 1 on Sunday.
