More on Jaylen Brown Injury

"I don't have any update on them," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of Brown and Tatum, saying he knew only that both players were being looked at by the team's doctors after the game. Tatum, however, talked to the media following the contest and said he was feeling OK. "I should be good," said Tatum, who followed his career-high 60-point performance Friday night against the visiting San Antonio Spurs with 33 points in 37 minutes Sunday night, adding that he hoped Brown was all right. "We'll see how I feel tomorrow."

Tom Westerholm: Jaylen Brown: “If it was a list of injuries that everybody’s dealing with in the NBA, I’d probably pick mine over a lot of the other ones. So I’ll be back soon, just want to make sure I’m healthy and be back to help the team win."

Abby Chin: Jaylen Brown is a go tonight in Indy. No minutes restriction, according to Brad Stevens. Jaylen told us this morning the pain in his right foot improved to bearable and he’s wearing new orthotics in his shoes to alleviate some of the pressure. #Celtics
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."
