More Rumors in this Storyline
Will you be ready and participating at the beginning of Celtics training camp? Jaylen Brown: Yeah, that’s the goal. My wrist has been healing. Some days it’s better than others. I got to continue to push and work, but I’m excited to be there for camp. And I’m excited to be there with my teammates, and start to build, and start this journey, man. I missed a lot of time, so I’m looking at the season like I’m ready. I want to play. I’m ready. We started back so quickly [last season]. I didn’t really have an [offseason]. I was dreading coming into training camp, like, ‘Oh, man.’ I was already hurting. I had a good season, but my body barely kept up. So, this year I think I’ll be a lot better in that category.

Jay King: Brad Stevens said Jaylen Brown isn’t exactly sure when he hurt his wrist. It was sore at times recently. After he sprained his ankle, it was a little more sore on Friday. That’s when he had the imaging and the Celtics realized the severity of the injury.
Jared Weiss: For Jaylen Brown’s type of wrist tear, Surgery recovery time seems to generally be 3-6 months, so doing surgery now gives Brown a chance to be healthy in time for next season. This is the same injury Romeo Langford had in his right wrist, which took about 6 months of recovery.
