Boston Celtics All-Star forward Jaylen Brown will undergo surgery for a torn scapholunate ligament in his left wrist and is done for the season, the team announced Monday.

Brown will have the surgery later this week.

Brown was averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game, starting in all 58 he played this season.

He was working on career-highs in points and assists. He earned his first All-Star appearance this season. He was second on the team in scoring behind Jayson Tatum.

Brown, 24, has averaged 15.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in 337 games (230 starts) since the team selected him No. 3 overall in the 2016 draft out of Cal.

He last played May 2, when he and Tatum left the game after colliding in the final minute of Boston’s game vs. Portland. But Brown seemed to have hurt his leg on the play, hopping off the court. It’s unclear if he injured his wrist in the collision.
