Boston Celtics

Celtics' Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both head to locker room after awkward late-game collision


The Boston Celtics lost a high-scoring affair with the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday evening, 129-119.


As a result they dropped down to seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings, which for the time being puts them in the play-in tournament.


Late in the fourth quarter, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both hobbled to the locker room after an awkward collision along the sideline.


As the Trail Blazers inbounded the ball to Norman Powell , Brown came flying in to try and get a deflection, while Tatum arrived for a trap on the sideline.


It's still too early know how serious either injury is, though Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said neither of them had swelling when he saw them immediately after the game.


Brown was questionable to play in Sunday's game due to a sprained right ankle, but was cleared to go after his workout earlier in the day.
