Jaylen Brown able to walk off court after awful fall
Jaylen Brown exited Thursday night’s Boston Celtics-Minnesota Timberwolves game after falling to the floor late in the third quarter, but he was able to walk off the injury and into the locker room.
Brown was streaking towards the basket on a drive and dunked the ball home. But as he came down from the dunk, he lost his grip on the rim and fell on his back/neck area. Brown’s arms immediately clenched after his fall, which is a symptom of a concussion.

Boston Celtics teammates huddled around Brown as he received medical attention in Minnesota. The second-year guard was able to move his arms and then got up to walk off the floor. He received a standing ovation from the fans in attendance.

Brown had 14 points in the game prior to his fall — right in line with his season average for points.
Many gave him well wishes, including LeBron James, whose Cavaliers had the day off.
Prayers sent to you right now and up Jalen Brown!!!! Glad to see you walk off on your own
