MarShon Brooks has been recalled by the Celtics after a five-game stint with the team's Development League team, the Maine Red Claws.

Brooks, who has played in nine games for the Celtics, made the most of his chance to play significant minutes with the Red Claws.

He appeared in five games, which included two games in the D-League Showcase in Reno, where the 6-foot-5 guard/forward averaged 27.4 points, six rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.2 steals and one blocked shot.

On Jan. 5 against Tulsa, Brooks had 36 points, six rebounds, five assists, five steals and three blocked shots. In addition, Brooks had a double-double against Springfield on Jan. 4 with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

While Brooks will be available to play on Friday at Golden State, it's unclear if his status as a lightly used bench player will change.

In those nine games for Boston, he averaged 3.2 points while playing only 6.8 minutes per game.

Since he was assigned to the Celtics' D-League team, Boston traded Courtney Lee and a 2016 second-round pick to Memphis for Jerryd Bayless.

Bayless has appeared in two games for the Celtics, averaging 8.5 points and four assists in 22.5 minutes while shooting 30 percent (6-for-20) from the field.
