For Boston, word that All-Star forward Jaylen Brown has tested positive for a mercifully asymptomatic case of COVID-19 means the Georgia native will not be suiting up for the Celtics — and perhaps the rest of the team’s slate of two remaining preseason games as well.
No other Celtics were listed as potential scratches for the game by the team.
Toronto may be without a number of players, including Khem Birch (health and safety protocols), Chris Boucher (dislocated finger), Pascal Siakam (left shoulder rehabilitation), and Yuta Watanabe (left calf strain).
Join us as we team up with Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston to try and divine what sort of team the 2021-22 Boston Celtics will be. https://t.co/CwwZfmhnO6
