Jaylen Brown has missed the last three games with a tailbone injury he suffered in the Celtics loss to the Dallas Mavericks 10 days ago. Though sore to the point where he's needed a cushion to sit, Brown appeared to be feeling better during practice on Tuesday.
Brown spoke to the media following shootaround stating he expects to make his return on Thursday when the Celtics host the Knicks at the TD Garden.
"I’m good, I’m ready to go," Brown said. "I’m feeling better every day. Just looking forward to being there on Thursday. Let’s keep this win streak going."
