BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Celtics open their season on Wednesday night in New York. Jaylen Brown will be a part of it.

After some uncertainty earlier this week related to Brown’s positive COVID-19 test on Oct. 8, head coach Ime Udoka said Wednesday that Brown will indeed be in the lineup for the first game of the regular season against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Brown said that he’s feeling “awesome.”

A few days shy of his 25th birthday, Brown is embarking on his sixth NBA season. He was an All-Star last year for the first time, when he averaged 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.
