G - BOS - OUT
Boston Celtics' President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge is reportedly expected to step down, with head coach Brad Stevens assuming a more prominent front-office role, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Boston Celtics announced the movement within their front office and coaching staff on Wednesday morning, as Brad Stevens has reportedly been "worn down" as the head coach. He will move into a more prominent front-office role within the organization, as Danny Ainge also announced he will be stepping down after spending 18 years in the Celtics' front office. Stevens will reportedly be tasked with player assessment for the draft, free agency, and trades, which are areas that Ainge oversaw during his tenure as the President of Basketball Operations. Now, the Celtics will turn their attention to its head coaching search for the upcoming 2021-22 NBA season.
Boston Celtics SG Jaylen Brown (wrist) will miss the remainder of the 2021 season
Announced on Monday, Celtics guard Jaylen Brown will have season-ending wrist surgery. He was diagnosed with a torn scapholunate ligament in his left wrist. Brown is expected to have the torn ligament surgically repaired later this week. Expect Marcus Smart and Evan Fournier to see increased roles with the guard out.
Celtics F Jaylen Brown (ankle) has been ruled out Sunday vs. the Heat.
Brown will miss his third straight contest with the ankle soreness. Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker will be called upon to shoulder more of the load offensively, and Evan Fournier should stick in the starting lineup. Brown’s next chance to play comes Tuesday, as the Celtics plays the Heat once again.
Jaylen Brown will not play during Friday night's contest vs. Chicago. It marks the second straight missed game for the Celtics guard.
G/F Evan Fournier should remain in the starting lineup in place of Brown and is certainly a reasonable replacement for desperate fantasy owners. The hope is that Brown will be able to return before the NBA playoffs.
Jaylen Brown collided with Jayson Tatum late in Sunday's loss to the Blazers and appeared to injure his right leg, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.
Brown suffered his injury with just 40 seconds left in the game, and he went back to the locker room immediately, not putting any pressure on his right leg as he hopped to the training room. Brown finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds and four assists over 35 minutes before leaving. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
