Jaylen Brown out for season in huge Celtics injury blow

The Boston Celtics’ hopes for an NBA playoff run were dealt a huge blow Monday when they announced All-Star forward Jaylen Brown will miss the remainder of the season.

Brown has a torn ligament in his left wrist, the Celtics said.

The 24-year-old is averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game for Boston, which currently sits in seventh place in the East.

The Celtics are two games behind the Heat for sixth and are currently in position to compete in the NBA play-in tournament. Earning the seventh seed would currently line them up for a first-round series with the Nets.
