Reports coming from the Boston Celtic has it that their star player Jaylen Brown is going to miss their next march.

Jaylen Brown suffered a torn scapholunate ligament in his left wrist that will require surgery.

He has had a superb year for the Celtics, averaging career bests in points (24.7), assists (3.4), steals (1.2 SPG), field-goal percentage (48.4 percent), three-point percentage (39.7 percent) and free-throw percentage (76.4 percent).

The Celtics have struggled to find consistency, however, going just 35-33 and sitting at No. 7 in the Eastern Conference. Given the talent the team has in Brown, Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart, Boston’s problems this season have been surprising and have called into question the future of the team’s core.

According to NBCsports, losing Brown for the rest of the year is a huge blow to a Celtics team that has struggled without him recently. Brown was named to his first All-Star team this season and averaged a career-high 24.7 points through 58 games played. He missed the last three games with a right ankle sprain.

The Celtics have four games left in their regular-season schedule and will aim to avoid the play-in tournament. After Sunday’s loss to Miami, Boston sits two games behind the Heat (35-33) with a seventh-place spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

The C’s and Heat will face off again Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET.
