All-Star wing Jaylen Brown will be available on Monday for the Celtics‘ game against Houston, the team announced (via Twitter).

Brown, who last played on Nov. 4, has missed Boston’s last eight games due to a right hamstring strain. Ime Udoka said on Nov. 8 that Brown would likely miss “a week or two” due to the injury — that was exactly two weeks ago.

The Celtics were below .500 at the time of Brown’s injury but have bounced back nicely during his absence, going 5-3 in those games, including 4-0 at home.

The Celtics also should have big man Robert Williams back in the rotation on Monday night. Williams, who has missed the last three games due to left knee tendinopathy, is listed as probable.
