BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green saw more doctors on Friday as the team tries to determine what is wrong with the 25-year-old.
Head coach Doc Rivers was hoping to have some answers later in the day, but when the Celtics hit the floor for an evening practice at the TD Garden, said there would be no announcements until Saturday.
“They’re either going to say he can or can’t, one of the two. That’s the way I look at it,” Rivers said Friday morning.
“If he can’t [play], that would make things more difficult, there’s no doubt. That’s why we have Sasha [Pavlovic] and Marquis [Daniels] in here, who can play the three.”
Whatever is ailing the Celtics forward, the Celtics are taking it extremely serious.
Green has yet to practice with the team after failing the stress-test portion of his physical last week.
A restricted free agent, Green signed a one-year, $9 million deal with Boston after the NBA lockout ended. He averaged 9.8 points for the Celtics in 26 regular season games and tallied 7.3 points in nine postseason games.
