Boston Celtics’ star Jaylen Brown has tested positive for COVID-19 and is quarantining away from the team, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
Brown’s vaccination status is unknown.
“I have my own thoughts about it,” Brown said at Celtics’ media day, per Keith Smith.
“I respect my teammates’ decisions on things like that. Everyone has their own opinion on it. I think it’s a personal choice.”
Last season, Brown, 24, averaged 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game en route to his first all-star selection.
Hopefully, Brown recovers quickly and returns to the Celtics prior to the start of the regular season on October 20.
