The All-Star wing sustained the injury late in the third quarter of the Celtics' 95-78 win over the Miami Heat Thursday night.

Brown missed the Celtics' 107-104 loss to the Dallas Mavericks due to what the team called hamstring tightness. At 4-6, it's not ideal for Boston to not have their best scorer in the lineup for the next few games, as Udoka gave an update on Brown's injury following Monday's practice.

“He knows his body pretty well, and he said it didn’t feel terrible but he did feel it ... The strain showed a week or two, and he knew something. He was being overly-cautious himself because of his past history.”
With Brown out, Udoka will most likely lean on Dennis Schröder -- who has started alongside Marcus Smart -- Josh Richardson, Aaron Nesmith, Romeo Langford and Payton Pritchard to make up for the lack of scoring.
"Jaylen was playing so well, starting to get his legs under him and trying to get a feel for everything," said Al Horford in his Monday post-practice presser. "We just have to rally around it. This is going to give opportunities for some of our other guys to step in and contribute a little more. These kind of things happen."
