Jaylen Brown (non-COVID illness), Robert Williams (left knee soreness) out vs. Golden State

Jaylen Brown may have to sit out tonight when the Celtics host the Golden State Warriors at TD Garden due to a non-COVID related illness.

The team released their updated injury report Saturday afternoon ahead of the matchup and Brown, who's coming off a 40-point performance against the Los Angles Lakers, has been listed as questionable.  

While no other information has been made available regarding Brown being under the weather, but he has missed a few games due to knee tendonitis this season. Brown is averaging a career-high 24.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.4 per game, while shooting a career-high 49.3% from the field, 40% from 3-point range, and even a career-high 75.4% from the free-throw line.

If Brown is not available to play, look to possibly see Romeo Langford fill in, which would mean a second starter won't be able to go, as Robert Williams is out for a second consecutive game with left knee soreness and Evan Fournier still remains in health and safety protocol for a sixth straight outing.

It's also unknown if new signee Jabari Parker will make his debut or not but the Celtics (30-26) and Warriors (28-28) are scheduled to tip-off at 8:30 PM EST on ABC.

*Update as of 7:01 PM, Brown has been downgraded to out per the team's latest injury report.
