The Boston Celtics confirmed that Jaylen Brown has a season-ending “left scapholunate ligament tear”, tweeting: “This past weekend Celtics forward Jaylen Brown was diagnosed with a torn scapholunate ligament in his left wrist. Brown is expected to have the torn ligament surgically repaired later this week, and will be out for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.” It’s unclear when Brown suffered the injury. He was already sidelined with a sprained ankle.
Brown missed the last three games after his already injured ankle was aggravated by a collision with Jayson Tatum in the Celtics’ loss to Portland on March 2. He’s missed 10 games this season he’s battled shoulder bursitis, non-COVID-19 illness and hip and knee ailments this season.
Brown was in the midst of the best season of his career, averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game this season.
