In contrast, the Detroit Pistons are enduring a challenging season, marked by statistical lows in NBA history. Following consecutive losses to the Brooklyn Nets, the team set a record with the worst single-season losing streak of 27 straight defeats.

Considering the Pistons’ struggles and the injuries to starters Isaiah Stewart and Killian Hayes, the Celtics have opted to rest Jaylen Brown. Fans are hopeful for an update from coach Joe Mazzulla, but as of now, he has not addressed the media.

While concerns lingered about Jayson Tatum potentially missing the game with a left ankle sprain, he is listed as available, according to the official injury report. Tatum will step in to play in Brown’s absence.

The injury to Jaylen Brown occurred during the highly-anticipated Christmas Day matchup against the LA Lakers. In the second quarter, a collision with LeBron James saw Brown slip, resulting in James’ knee striking Brown’s lower back. Although both players were initially checked out of the game, James returned shortly after, while Brown went to the locker room before rejoining the game in the third quarter. Despite his return, the Celtics are erring on the side of caution by keeping him out of the game against the Pistons.

In Brown’s absence, the Celtics will need to compensate for his contributions on both ends of the court. Throughout his career, Brown has faced the Pistons 21 times, averaging 17.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.0 steals per game. Notably, he boasts a 14-7 record against the Pistons. The timing of his return to action remains uncertain due to the injury.
