Celtics guard Jaylen Brown sat out Monday’s 117-101 Game 1 win over the Philadelphia 76ers as he continues to battle a right hamstring strain suffered in Boston’s Game 7 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Brown felt better Monday and tried to lobby team trainers to let him play but the team decided to err on the side of caution.

Marcus Smart started in Brown’s place. The Celtics have reinserted Aron Baynes into the starting lineup, where he shared the frontcourt with Al Horford.
