Jaylen Brown’s return timetable from wrist surgery, revealed


Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown revealed he underwent surgery on his left wrist Wednesday, and the team officially announced a recovery timetable of about three months on Thursday.

Brown had been dealing with his wrist injury for a while before it was finally determined he would undergo surgery and miss the remainder of a seemingly cursed 2020-21 season for Boston. The Celtics have undergone a ridiculous amount of adversity this season, from Brown’s surgery to Jayson Tatum’s COVID-19 battle to a bunch of other issues.
Add it all together and you get a 35-35 team that’s stumbling toward the play-in tournament. Boston just lost a fourth straight game on Wednesday night, this one to the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs had entered the game losers of 11 straight.
Brown’s injury is especially a bummer given he was in the midst of a career year. The 24-year-old made his first All-Star Game and ended his season with averages of 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 34.5 minutes per game. He also shot an efficient 48.4% from the field and 39.7 from 3-land.
Without Brown, the Celtics are almost certainly cooked this season. Even if they get through the play-in round, they’ll have a date with one of the mighty teams at the top of the conference. With a healthy roster, Boston might have had a chance, but not now.
Brown will just have to rehab and get ready for next season. The Celtics are hoping 2021-22 won’t be nearly as nightmarish, and they should be better as long as Brown and Jayson Tatum are healthy.
