Green (illness) scored 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding three steals, two rebounds, an assist and a block in 20 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the Bucks. He missed the morning shootaround, but was well enough by game time to suit up. It's actually the first time in eight games that Green has scored in double digits due to lingering knee and oblique issues, so the days off provided by the All-Star break can't come soon enough for Green.
Green (illness) is working out in advance of Friday's game against Milwaukee and is expected to play, Jason Leiser of The Palm Beach Post reports. After missing Friday's shootaround due to an illness, Green's status was up in the air with tip-off approaching. However, his condition has improved and all signs point to him taking the floor against the Bucks on Friday. He has been shaky from the floor of late, shooting just 24.4 percent from the field over the last five games.
Green is questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks due to an illness. Green missed the team's Friday morning shootaround due to the sudden illness. The illness comes on the heels of lingering injuries Green has been dealing with over the past week. An official decision on his status for Friday will likely be held off until after pregame warmups. If Green can't shake the bug before tip, look for Josh Richardson to possibly see more minutes off the bench.
Green (knee, oblique) ended up playing 25 minutes in Monday's 89-84 win over the Bulls, finishing with nine points (4-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, and two assists across 25 minutes. Green has been hampered by right knee tendinitis for over a week and is also being bothered by a strained right oblique, but because neither injury is considered particularly serious, he's been called on to play with several other players on the roster dealing with more problematic ailments. Even though he's been able to take the court, Green has still been abysmal over the last six games, averaging just four points on 19.6 percent shooting from the field and 15.8 percent shooting from beyond the three-point arc. Perhaps once Goran Dragic (calf) or Hassan Whiteside (oblique) return to action, Green can finally pick up some much-needed rest.
Green (knee) is questionable for Monday's contest against the Bulls, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Green has been playing through tendinitis in his right knee the past several games and his availability is once again in question. In Friday's loss to the Raptors, Green missed all seven of his shot attempts and played only 22 minutes. He joins fellow guards Dwyane Wade (shoulder) and Beno Udrih (neck) as questionable, which means Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson could see extra action on Monday night.
