Jaylen Brown ruled out for Tuesday vs. 76ers


The Boston Celtics will be down two of their key players Tuesday night when they take on the Philadelphia 76ers.

Jaylen Brown has officially been ruled out after being listed on the injury report as questionable due to low back pain. He'll join Robert Williams on the sideline as the C's big man already was out with left knee injury management.

The good news for Boston is both Brown and Williams are expected to play in Wednesday's game vs. the Toronto Raptors, according to C's head coach Joe Mazzulla.

The Celtics look to complete a 4-0 season series sweep of the Sixers. As of Tuesday, they have a comfortable three-game lead over Philly in the Eastern Conference standings with four games remaining. They trail the first-place Milwaukee Bucks by two games.

C's-Sixers is set for an 8 p.m. ET tip-off at Wells Fargo Center.
