Brown has had right foot soreness for over a week in what’s being called a right plantar fascia injury, leading to him missing Thursday night’s win against the Milwaukee Bucks. Semi Ojeleye, noted Giannis Antetokounmpo slower downer, started in Brown’s place as the Celtics won 117-113 to give Milwaukee their first defeat of the season.
Brown was a game-time decision on Thursday, so it’s no stretch for him to declare that he feels better enough to play. He’s still listed officially as questionable tonight, but his optimism is a good sign.
