Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown is facing a significant absence from the court after sustaining a facial fracture during the team's recent win against the Philadelphia 76ers.

According to reports from The Athletic, Brown is expected to miss games up to and potentially including the All-Star break.

Brown collided with teammate Jayson Tatum while going for a rebound during the game, taking an elbow to the cheek and requiring medical attention.

Brown was unable to return to the game and finished with four points and three assists in 18 minutes.

Celtics interim coach Joe Mazzulla did not provide an update on Brown's condition after the game, and it is unclear who will replace him in the All-Star game, assuming he is unable to play.

Despite the injury to Brown, the Celtics still managed to secure a 106-99 win against the 76ers.

With several key players already out with injuries, the All-Star break may not come soon enough for the Boston team.
