Still, Brown said he's hopeful the issue won't linger. "I don't think it's anything that's going to keep me out long-term, I just have to manage it properly, keep it from flaring up," Brown said. "I definitely want to be on the floor as much as possible and continue to stay in rhythm, because it's going to be a challenge all year to staying in rhythm. Hopefully I'll be able to feel a lot better tomorrow, closer to 100 percent. ... "It's pain across the foot, so any time I put pressure down, when I take off or run, I feel pain shoot around the foot. If it was a playoff game, I'd definitely be trying to play through it, but the concern is we have an 82-game season, so they are kind of reeling me back. But we'll see how it goes."

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 🙏🏽
