With the NBA regular season winding down, teams are preparing for their upcoming opening playoff series set to begin later this month. Unfortunately, it looks like the Boston Celtics may not be at 100 percent for the postseason after some extremely uncommon injury news emerged on Friday.

Boston has certainly been one of the most impressive teams in basketball yet again this season, currently sitting at a 55-25 record as the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Celtics almost certainly have aspirations to take home a championship this year after losing in the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors last postseason. Unfortunately, some horrible news emerged about All-Star forward Jaylen Brown.

The Athletic’s Jared Weiss tweeted out a picture of Brown’s right hand, which was wrapped heavily. According to Weiss, Brown cut his hand picking up a vase that was knocked over while he was watering his plants on Thursday night.

The cut required five stitches in his hand.

Due to this injury, Brown will not be playing in the Celtics’ matchup on Friday night against the Toronto Raptors. Weiss added that Brown is expected to be ready for the postseason.

Many around the NBA world took notice of this news and are concerned for Brown and how this injury could affect him even if he is active for the postseason.


Others think that there may be more to this story considering most would probably be cautious and sweep up glass chards with a broom.


Regardless of the situation, it couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Celtics as they look forward to the postseason.
