Jaylen Brown, as reported by Jaylen Brown nearby, appears to have a very bad headache. And that is very good news.
Brown scared the hell out of Celtics fans, the NBA world, and — well, human beings — Thursday night in Minnesota.
We love you, Mr. Brown. Sleep well, and dream of banners and your friends and family — Trevin especially.
"… and love of unseen things that do not die."

After a CAT-scan and other concussion protocols, the Celtics rising star says he’s okay and is on the flight back to Boston.
Boston and the world says: *whew.”
It’s not often one hears the words “only a concussion” in sports or in life. In this case, however, they’re apt.
Prayers sent to you right now and up Jalen Brown!!!! Glad to see you walk off on your own 🙏🏾

Timberwolves fans showed their class and were joined by LeBron Janes, TNT, Karl-Anthony Townes, and many others in prayers and well-wishes, during and after the game.
Brown’s twitter handle — FCHWPO, for “Faith Consistency Hard Work Pays Off” — immediatly came to mind for many. Or the universe was just in a kindly mood, because that fall was nasty.

That’s a clip of Brown’s awful fall and concussion nearby. If you didn’t see it, you may not want to.
At the same time, though, it’s a reminder of how lucky we all are.
Prayers? Answered. Jaylen Brown is coming… back.
