While the Celtics took care of business and swept the Nets after another close game, Jaylen Brown said he had some “hamstring problems” going into the second half. Brown stayed on the floor, though, and helped the C’s close out the Nets in a 116-112 victory Monday at Barclays Center. “I’m alright,” Brown told NBC Sports Boston after the game. “I think I’m alright. I’m going to go get checked out and I think I’ll be fine for the next one.”

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.

“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.”
