Brown supplied 13 points (5-18 FG, 3-12 3Pt), six rebounds, one assists and one steal across 39 minutes in Sunday's 87-79 ECF Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Brown missed a handful of wide open threes that contributed to Boston's offensive woes. He was one of many Celtics who struggled. Brown, Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart shot a combined 8-for-42. The poor shooting was a result of a stagnant second half Boston offense that lacked ball movement and seemed to cave under pressure. Still, Brown performed well in the post-season. During these playoffs, Brown averaged 18.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.4 made threes over 32 minutes per game. He'll return to Boston next season, fulfilling the last year of his three year rookie contract.

Brown had 17 points (4-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 victory over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was dynamic on the offensive end but struggled to find his rhythm but still managed to put up 17 points in the victory. He continues to play well although his shot choices remain questionable at times. He attacked the basket with little reward in this one and perhaps needs to look at facilitating once in the paint rather than forcing his shot. Boston will take the momentum into Cleveland on Friday as they look to wrap up the series in six games.

Brown had just 10 points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes during Saturday's 116-86 loss to the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Brown, along with a number of teammates, had his worst game of the post-season Saturday, producing just 10 points with very little else. The team can take solace from the fact that they all managed to save their worst games for the same one, meaning that things should improve for Monday's Game Four. The Celtics will look to bounce back as they attempt to head home with a 3-1 series lead.

Brown compiled 23 points (9-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 107-94 victory over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Brown continued his recent play with another impressive performance in Tuesday's crucial Game Two victory. He manages to find new ways to score the basketball on a nightly basis and has really established himself as one of the go-to options on the Boston offense. His hamstring injury is now well in the rear-view mirror and he and the Celtics will look to go into Cleveland on Saturday and come away with another victory.

Brown accounted for 23 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 28 minutes during Boston's 108-83 win over the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Brown started the series in the same way he wrapped up the semifinal round against the 76ers, namely, with a blistering hot shot. The second-year guard has now drained at least 50.0 percent of his attempts from distance in three of the past four postseason contests, and he's sporting a 65.5 percent success rate (19-for-29) from the field overall in the last two games. Brown was also excellent on the boards Sunday, and the Celtics would undoubtedly enjoy a substantial advantage if the 21-year-old can manage to continue churning out a similar caliber of effort as the series unfolds. He'll look to deliver a successful encore when Boston attempts to take a commanding 2-0 series lead Tuesday.

Brown will remain in the starting lineup and has been cleared for a full workload in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavaliers on Sunday, A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the first game of the semifinals versus the 76ers with a hamstring injury, the Celtics opted to limit Brown's minutes a bit over the final four contests of the series. However, in Boston's Game 5 closeout, Brown saw his minutes upped to 31 and he capitalized with 24 points, four rebounds and two assists. With a strong showing there and a handful of days off for additional rest ahead of the Eastern Conference Finals, Brown has officially had enough time to make a full recovery and will no longer face any sort of restrictions. As a result, look for him to see 30-plus minutes once again, giving him plenty of value as a potential DFS target.

Brown finished with 24 points (10-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 114-112 victory over the 76ers.

EDGE Analysis

Brown moved back into the starting lineup at the expense of Marcus Smart and looked very good in his 31 minutes. He still did not see his normal allotment of playing time meaning that there could be some lingering soreness, but he appeared untroubled as he helped the Celtics overcome a dogged 76ers team. He will get a few days rest before the Cavaliers arrive for the first of two games at the Garden.

Brown will draw the start for Game 5 against the 76ers on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown has been coming off the bench since he missed a game with a hamstring injury, but he will make his return to the starting five Wednesday, moving Marcus Smart back to the bench. Brown has played between 23 and 29 minutes in those three games, but the move to the starting lineup will likely put an end to his minutes restriction. Brown was averaging 37.8 minutes in the postseason before suffering the injury, and will likely be closer to that total on Wednesday.

Brown (hamstring) will again be held to minutes restriction Wednesday in Game 5 of the Celtics' series with the 76ers, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since returning to action in Game 2, Brown has played between 23 and 29 minutes in three contests, with the low count coming in Game 4, when he battled foul trouble. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Brown continues to feel better by the day while recovering from the strained right hamstring, so it's possible the wing could creep over the 30-minute mark for the first time in the series Wednesday. The Celtics could be in need for additional run from Brown at shooting guard with Marcus Smart likely to act as the backup point guard due to Shane Larkin's (shoulder) absence.

Brown (hamstring) will remain on a minutes restriction for Game 4 against the Sixers on Monday, A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was expected to be on a 25-minute restriction in Game 3 on Saturday, but ended up logging 29 minutes, which resulted in 16 points and nine rebounds. That suggests the hamstring wasn't giving him much of an issue and as expected, he'll continue to play through the ailment in Game 4. Coach Brad Stevens and the Celtics' medical staff aren't quite ready to deem him 100 percent healthy despite the improvements, though, so Brown is fully expected to have some restrictions once again Monday. As a result, Brown may carry some risk in DFS contests.
