Jared Weiss: Jaylen Brown is going to talk to the doctor to get his eyes evaluated & figure out an alternative to his glasses. Says he canāt wear contacts all the time now, but glasses werenāt working for him. āIt gets smeared and then I canāt see at all. So I might as well take my chances."

Third overall pick Jaylen Brown returned from a two-game absence with a hyperextended right knee and missed 10 of 13 shots, finishing with just 9 points. Brown tweaked the knee missing a two-handed dunk on a pretty crossover move but said he expects to play Sunday against the Phoenix Suns. āItās bothering me a little bit but [Iāve got to] shake some of the rust off and get back into the flow of the game,ā Brown said. āI felt like I was stuck in the mud a little bit, missed some baskets going to my left hand because I was exploding off my right leg, but Iāve just got to get it stronger.ā
