Brown said during a videoconference Friday that a ligament was placed back onto his thumb bone.
“If the season was to start, I’d be back,” he said. “I think my time line was like six weeks.”
Brown said he played through the problem this season, and while it could be painful, it didn’t limit him much.
Brown has scored 8.9 points per game this season, more than double his average as a rookie in 2018-19.
