Brown recently issued a complaint about the Toronto Raptors NBA In-Season Tournament court. He called the floor “unacceptable” and hinted that he may have suffered an injury. There have been other players who have also complained about the NBA In-Season Tournament courts as well, so the league will surely monitor the situation.

Boston will battle Memphis on Sunday on the road. The Grizzlies have struggled mightily, but the Celtics will need their entire roster to step up around Jayson Tatum if Brown ends up not being able to play.
