Jaylen Brown's injury during the Utah summer league had Boston Celtics fans holding their collective breath. Brown, the No. 3 overall pick in the recent 2016 NBA Draft, hyperextended his right knee while going after a loose ball during Boston's summer league game against Philadelphia on July 4, according to ESPN.
Jaylen Brown underwent an MRI to determine the extent of his injury, and Brown and the Celtics were delighted about the resulting diagnosis: a bone bruise, which will cause the six-foot-seven forward from the state of Georgia to only miss a few days of action.
Brown, who is anxious to return to the court, wanted to play in the Celtics' June 7 contest against San Antonio, but coaches decided to hold him out as a precaution.
