It was a win-lose kind of night for the Boston Celtics as they finish off a three-game road trip with a 117-109 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night, but they lost forward Jaylen Brown in the process.

On Thursday, Jaylen Brown was on the break when he completed a dunk, but came down straight on his head with a awkward fall and it was all bad.

He lay on the court for several minutes as medical staff attended to him and the Timberwolves' Target Center arena went quiet. They originally brought a stretcher out, but he was able to walk off under his own power. After his concussion test, Brown was reportedly taken to a hospital for a CT scan and other evaluations.
