In a significant update from the Boston Celtics camp, forward Jaylen Brown's participation in the upcoming clash against the Charlotte Hornets remains uncertain, casting a shadow on the Celtics' lineup for Monday's game. The much-anticipated encounter, marking the second face-off in their season series, sees Brown grappling with a left hand sprain that has left his status as questionable.

The Celtics, who hold a formidable 58-16 record, have shown resilience bouncing back from a minor slump, overcoming the Atlanta Hawks in Trae Young's absence. Their recent 104-92 triumph over the New Orleans Pelicans highlighted their depth and versatility.

Despite not hitting their usual efficiency, the team's collective effort saw all starters hitting double figures, complemented by a formidable defensive performance that kept the Pelicans' shooting under 40%.

Brown's Injury Woes

Jaylen Brown, a pivotal figure in the Celtics' roster, has been battling injuries, with a hip contusion and a right ankle sprain limiting his appearances in recent games.

The addition of a new injury concern, a left hand sprain, puts his participation against the Hornets in jeopardy. The Celtics' medical team is closely monitoring Brown's condition, with a game-time decision expected on his availability, emphasizing the team's cautious approach towards his recovery.

Brown's history against the Hornets is noteworthy, with an impressive record in 20 games, contributing significantly across the board. His average stats against Charlotte underscore his value to the Celtics, making his potential absence a focal point in the pre-game discussions.
