Jaylen Brown provides update on his health after terrifying fall
Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown left Thursday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after a horrible looking fall in the third quarter, but fortunately it seems like he is going to be just fine.
After he lost his balance on a dunk and slammed his head and neck area off the court, Brown was eventually able to walk off under his own power. That was a positive sign, as was the tweet he sent after the game.
Appreciate everybody I'm ok .. Got a headache tho good team win !!

Given the way his arms clenched immediately after the fall, it would be a surprise if Brown did not suffer a concussion.

Brown had 14 points in the game prior to exiting, and fans in Minnesota gave him a classy ovation on his way off the court. Hopefully he’s able to make a speedy recovery.
