Jaylen Brown ruled out for Monday vs. Hornets originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Forsberg: How Smart and Jaylen have gone from headlocks to harmony
The injury doesn't appear to be anything serious for Brown, who dropped a season-high 36 points in Sunday's 130-121 victory. Boston likely is giving the 26-year-old much-needed rest during a grueling week on the schedule.
The Celtics will also be without veteran big man Al Horford (back soreness), which is no surprise on the second night of a back-to-back. Charlotte will be short-handed as LaMelo Ball, Gordon Hayward, Terry Rozier, Cody Martin and Dennis Smith Jr. each were ruled out.
C's-Hornets tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET right here on NBC Sports Boston.
