Ime Udoka: Jaylen Brown is ‘probably going to miss preseason;’ hopeful he’s back before season starts

USA Today


Article Summary:

Despite missing Saturday’s preseason exhibition against the Toronto Raptors and likely the rest of the preseason slate of games ahead of the Boston Celtics, All-Star forward Jaylen Brown is hoped to be ready to return to the team’s rotation by the start of the 2021-22 NBA regular season, according to head coach Ime Udoka.

The Celtics star tested positive for an asymptomatic case of COVID-19 on Friday less than 24 hours ahead of the Raptors home exhibition game and will have to sit out at least 10 days since his positive test, or until he has returned two negative COVID-19 tests, per the policies of the league’s health and safety protocols.

“With the time frame and quarantine, we’re thinking he’s probably going to miss preseason, but hopefully everything goes well and he’s back before the season starts,” he added. Co/Fc9Ytxm3yx

Given that Brown is largely a known factor for Boston, the Celtics coach related he did not anticipate it mucking up the team’s plans for getting the roster up to speed ahead of the season opener.
