“He felt better today, but not good enough to play,” Stevens said in a radio appearance.
Brown injured his knee late in Monday’s loss to the Washington Wizards on Christmas Day when he tangled with Washington’s Markieff Morris on a rebound attempt. He left the locker room with a crutch under his arm.
Brown is averaging 14.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game this season.
Marcus Smart will likely start in Brown’s place.
