    Brad Stevens ‘Very Doubtful’ on Jaylen Brown’s Status for Game 1 Vs. Sixers

    [News] Brad Stevens Calls Jaylen Brown "Very Doubtful" Prior to Game 1 | Powered by CLNS Media


    As Game 1 between the Boston Celtics and Phildalphia 76ers awaits tip-off, there is one question on Celtics fans minds – Will Jaylen Brown play or not.

    The ultra-talented second-year swingman out of Cal strained his right hamstring during Saturday nights Game 7 triumph over Milwaukee.

    Although the already shorthanded Celtics handled the Bucks with ease without Brown in the second half of their Game 7 win, the streaking 76ers present a new challenge for the Celtics.

    Brad Stevens detailed whether Brown would be available to play, and who would be inserted into the Celtics lineup should he miss tonight’s game during his pregame press conference.
