Jared Weiss: Stevens says Jaylen Brown remains doubtful…

More on Jaylen Brown Injury

Sean Grande: Marcus Morris and Al Horford will both return tonight. Jaylen Brown (toe) will play. Shane Larkin (ill) is out.
Marc D'Amico: #NEBHInjuryReport: Jaylen Brown is back and will start tonight against the Kings. Marcus Morris is out with a sprained ankle but should “be back sooner rather than later,” says Brad Stevens.
Adam Himmelsbach: Brad Stevens said Jaylen Brown got through this afternoon's workout without any issues. "He went hard and stayed after we left for another half-hour, hour. But felt pretty good and we’ll see how he feels tomorrow."
Jaylen Brown has missed the last five games while recovering from the injury, and on Thursday he spoke with reporters for the first time since the scary fall. "I remember slipping off the rim," Brown said. "I remember waking up and there was a bunch of people standing around me. And I was like, 'What the hell is going on?' I had no idea I had been, like, out for like 30 seconds or whatever they said I was out for. "I just remember waking up and there was a bunch of people around me. And I tried to get up and they were like, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa!' And I was like, 'What's the big deal?' And that's all I remember, to be honest."
Mark Murphy: Jaylen Brown (concussion) shot around before tonight's game. Asked if he would join team on four-city western trip, Stevens said, "I believe so. Haven't checked with training staff yet."
Scott Souza: #Celtics Brad Stevens on Jaylen Brown: Still has little bit of a lingering headache. Is clearly better. Hopefully all goes well and he can start (concussion protocol) this weekend. But he won’t be at either game (on trip).
Jared Weiss: Jaylen Brown was doing well today when he came into the facility to see the doctor, according to a source. Celtics announce he has been placed in the concussion protocol.
When his 6-foot-7-inch, 225-pound frame thudded to the ground, the noise reverberated to the other side of the arena, and probably could be heard in the upper reaches, too. Brown initially appeared in shock. His arms were somewhat awkwardly held in front of him, and he kept blinking. But he did not move or talk. Celtics medical staffers rushed to him and immediately instructed him to stay down. Forward Al Horford sat a few feet away, hoping his teammate would know he was there.
Brad Stevens once coached a player who collided with a stanchion and then lost movement, and that was what he thought about as he watched Brown. The Timberwolves wheeled a stretcher onto the court, but it turned out Brown would not need it. After a few minutes, he sat up. And then about 30 seconds after that, he stood and walked to the locker room as he received a standing ovation from the Minnesota fans.
Nick Friedell: Jaylen Brown just hit hard on the floor after a dunk -- that looked a lot like Kris Dunn's nasty fall last month.
Steve Bulpett: As soon as Jaylen Brown hit the floor, Al Horford rushed over to make sure he stayed still. Marcus Smart kneeled in seeming prayer over by the Celtic sideline.
CJ McCollum: Prayers up for the homie @Jaylen Brown . Glad my guy was able to walk out on his own 🙏🏽
A. Sherrod Blakely: The #Celtics have ruled Jaylen Brown (right knee) out for tonight’s game. That doesn’t mean he’ll stop working on his game.

Jared Weiss: Stevens has no update on Jaylen Brown, who left the game early limping on his right leg.
Scott Souza: #Celtics coach Brad Stevens confirms Jaylen Brown expected to return for C's tonight.
Jared Weiss: Jaylen on ditching the glasses: "I haven’t been able to find any comfort really with the glasses, so I was just like, ‘F it,’ and took them off. My eye’s still blurry. Everything’s still blurry. I don’t have very good vision, but at least it’s like, more consistent."
Marc D'Amico: Jaylen Brown (eye) will play tonight, according to Brad Stevens. Marcus Morris (knee) will go through his pre-game warmups with the hope of playing. #NEBHInjuryReport
Steve Bulpett: Jaylen Brown (eye) and Marcus Morris (knee) were both on the Celtics' flight here to San Antonio. They're listed as questionable for tomorrow night's game against the Spurs.
Mark Followill: Besides Marcus Morris being out with left knee rehab, Celtics have announced Jaylen Brown is out tonight (right eye inflammation)
Adam Himmelsbach: The Celtics say Jaylen Brown is questionable for Game 5 with a right hip pointer. Jae Crowder (groin) & Amir Johnson (shoulder) are probable
Nick Friedell: Brad Stevens says Avery Bradley and Jaylen Brown are out tonight. Gerald Green is questionable with a bruised heel.
Chris Forsberg: Brad Stevens on Avery Bradley, Jaylen Brown: "Both guys are out for the next two games with the hope of doing some practice when we return."
Michael Gallagher: A couple minor left knee injuries for Jaylen Brown in Summer League so far, but he's not wearing any knee support tonight.
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. “It’s bothering me a little bit but [I’ve got to] shake some of the rust off and get back into the flow of the game,” Brown said. “I 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 I’ve just got to get it stronger.”
Mark Murphy: Shrewsberry said Brown's right knee not a serious issue. Abdul Nader will see more time tonight as a result.

Kyrie Irving saga not over?

“When Kyrie announced he was opting in, I was like ‘okay, we can move on. This won’t be a thing,’ said Windhorst. “But that’s not what my phone was telling me. That’s not what the executives were telling me. That’s not what the agents were telling me. They are saying this ain’t over, because the Nets made it clear to everybody they did not want the status quo. If nothing else changed, they were not going to be happy. They were not sure if that this satisfied that situation.
