Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker was downgraded from doubtful to out, and forward Jaylen Brown was downgraded to questionable for Boston's home game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

Walker, 30, will miss his fourth straight game with a left oblique strain. He hasn't played since April 25.

Brown, who is suffering from a right ankle sprain, logged more than 43 minutes in the Celtics' dramatic overtime win against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday. He had 17 points in the 143-140 victory.

Brown, 24, has averaged 24.8 points and 5.9 rebounds in 57 games this season. Walker has averaged 18.2 points and 5.0 assists in 39 games for Boston, which will look for its third straight win.
