The Boston Celtics playoff opportunities took an enormous hit on Monday, as Jaylen Brown is set to miss out on the rest of the season.
The Boston Celtics have four video games staying in the regular season to slip and attempt into the playoffs and avoid the Eastern Conference play-in round.

Through 58 games this season, Brown averaged 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals a night while shooting 48.4 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from 3-point range.
