Brown exited the game at the end of the third quarter after experiencing some tightness. He finished with 17 points, five rebounds and two assists on 5-of-14 shooting, logging just over 29 minutes.
“We’ll know more tomorrow about severity or length of time or whatever. .. They’re a little different with everybody and so, depending on the grade of the strain, it could be anywhere from a week to two weeks, depending on the person,” head coach Ime Udoka said, via Forsberg.
Brown is coming off the first All-Star season of his professional career. The 25-year-old is averaging 25.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals through eight games this season, shooting 49% from the floor and 40% from three-point range.
Boston started the campaign poorly on defense and recently dealt with some chemistry issues, but the team held Orlando to 79 points on Wednesday and Miami to 78 points in its last outing. The club will be seeking its third straight win when it visits Dallas on Saturday night.
