Jaylen Brown Suffers Facial Fracture

It wasn't a great night for the Boston Celtics. Not only did they lose out to the Toronto Raptors on their big man trade target in Jakob Poeltl, but they also lost star wing Jaylen Brown to a terrible facial fracture.

Brown was hit in the face by an accidental elbow from teammate Jayson Tatum, and was in extreme pain. He is expected to be out until after the All-Star Break. 

NBA injury expert Jeff Stotts says that his recovery time depends on which bones were involved, the size of the break and any sofft tissue or even eye damage. He adds that surgery may be needed if a bone was displaced.

Brown will be further evaluated throughout the day on Thursday and we'll keep you updated on any updates about his condition and a timeline.
