The Boston Celtics are once again preparing to play a big game with a roster that will be slightly more short-handed than usual. Jaylen Brown, who suffered a right hamstring strain in the second quarter of Boston's 112-96 Game 7 win over Milwaukee on Saturday, is doubtful to play in Game 1 of Boston's second-round series against Philadelphia on Monday. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said the latest update he received from the medical staff was that Brown still had some soreness and had not tried to do any running-related activities as of Sunday afternoon.

Jaylen Brown is set for an MRI scan on his hamstring on Sunday as the Boston Celtics look to have him available for their NBA Eastern Conference semifinal opener against the Philadelphia 76ers. Brown has picked up the mantle in terms of scoring since Kyle Irving was ruled out for the postseason with a knee injury, averaging 20.5 points across the first six matches against the Milwaukee Bucks.

At this point, did anyone think another injury would set the Celtics back? All season long the Boston Celtics have trusted their system, believed that the next man would step up, and went on to earn the No. 2 seed in the East — with the best defense in the NBA along the way. The Celtics shut down the Bucks transition opportunities and forced them into the halfcourt, then got their own guys to step up — both Al Horford and Terry Rozier had 26 points, leading a systemic attack.
