Malcolm Brogdon injury update and return date

Although Malcolm Brogdon will miss his third straight game when the Celtics play the Thunder, he seems to be getting closer to playing again. Due to right hamstring tightness, which he injured last Wednesday against the Pistons, Brogdon has been labeled as out on the injury report.

Brogdon looks good, according to pregame comments from coach Joe Mazzulla, which is good news moving ahead.

Physically, he’s doing fairly well, saw him today, said Mazzulla. “It’s just a regular occurrence. ensuring his comfort and ensuring there is no stiffness or grip at it In order to catch up on the court work, he went today. Hopefully, he will return as soon as possible.

As the undisputed captain of the bench, Brogdon has averaged 13.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game while playing off the bench. His versatility and leadership, as he can both score and pass the ball, have made him a pleasant luxury for the Celtics.

However, the Celtics have depth behind Brogdon. In Brogdon’s absence, Payton Pritchard has stepped up and ignited the team off the bench. As they take on the Thunder, the Celtics are aiming for their eighth straight victory.
