Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown will travel to Marietta, Georgia, to be at the funeral for his best friend Saturday morning and then attempt to rejoin the team as Boston visits the Pacers that night.

Brown's friend Trevin Steede died Nov. 15. Brown played the next day against the Warriors and scored a team-high 22 points in the Celtics' come-from-behind victory. After traveling on his own to Atlanta the next day to be with friends and family, Brown rejoined the team for its game against the Hawks and scored a career-high 27 points.

Brown hadn't spoken with reporters since after the Warriors game but talked Friday about his difficult week.
