Update, Aug. 19 Brown is available to play in Game 2 vs. the Sixers on Wednesday night.

Update, Aug. 18 Brown has popped up on the injury report for Game 2 vs. the Sixers with a thigh injury. He’s listed as probable, so it doesn’t appear to be anything serious. Hayward is listed as out and is expected to miss four weeks due to a Grade 3 ankle sprain.

Update, Aug. 16 — It’s good news for Celtics fans because the only player who is in question for Game 1 of the first round is Langford. Everybody else is expected to be a full-go, including Kemba Walker, who was on a minutes limit for most of the seeding round.
