The Boston Celtics have found it really hard to maintain a healthy core all year long. The group of of Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Gordon Hayward has only played 14 games together so far.
Adding to their list of injuries, Jaylen Brown is now expected to miss at least one week, owing to his hamstring issue.
