Jaylen Brown out against the Grizzlies with ankle sprain

It didn't take long for Jaylen Brown to make his way back to the disabled list following the Celtics blowout 139-107 win over the Los Angeles Lakers Monday night.

Brown, who was officially listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies due to a right ankle sprain, has now been ruled out by the Celtics.

According to Brown, he may have suffered the injury during the fourth quarter against the Lakers, when he was seen limping a bit. Monday's victory marked Brown's return to action after missing the previous two Celtics losses to the Suns and Bucks with a sore thumb.

This will be Brown's seventh missed game this season and while he's averaging career-highs in points (20), rebounds (6.8) and assists (2.4), he may still be on the bubble of being selected as an All-Star this year. But after his emphatic dunk on LeBron James, Brown is definitely making a strong case to get that call to Chicago for the NBA's midseason classic next month.

The Celtics host rookie Ja Morant and the Grizzlies tonight at TD Garden, while tip-off is slated for a 7:30 p.m. ET start.
