Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown is expected to resume basketball activities in approximately three months following successful reconstructive surgery on his injured wrist, the team announced Thursday.
Brown was ruled out for the remainder of the season on Monday after tearing the scapholunate ligament in his left wrist.
The first-time All-Star's diagnosis came as a shock since Brown missed three successive outings due to a right ankle sprain and was not listed on the injury report as suffering from a wrist ailment.
Brown was averaging career-highs in points (24.7) and assists (3.4) in 58 contests before his injury.
The 24-year-old's injury was the latest in a series of low points for a Celtics team guaranteed to finish within the Eastern Conference play-in spots. Boston has lost four in a row and sits seventh in the conference with two games to play ahead of Friday's matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
