Green (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) played 21 minutes off the bench in Friday's 124-97 win over the Magic, finishing with 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, two steals and one assist.
Green entered the NBA's health and safety protocols last weekend, but he didn't end up missing any games after the Celtics had three consecutive contests postponed before the team returned to action Friday. The blowout nature of the game likely inflated Green's playing time in his return, but he should still have the opportunity to see a slight uptick in minutes until Jayson Tatum is cleared to rejoin the team following his recent positive COVID-19 test.
Green (COVID-19 protocols) is available Friday against the Magic, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.
The Celtics will play their first game since Jan. 8 due to postponements, and Green has cleared the required protocols to play. He should see a role in the rotation with a myriad of backcourt options still ruled out.
Green (COVID-19 protocols) is considered questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.
Green was initially expected to be out until Saturday, but it looks as though he'll have a chance to return to action Friday, provided he can pass through the league's health and safety protocols. The Celtics have not played in nearly a week, as their last three games have been postponed.
Green (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) is expected to remain out through Friday's game against the Magic, though he could be eligible to rejoin the Celtics as soon as Saturday, Tom Westerholm of Boston.com reports.
Green entered the NBA's health and safety protocol last Friday, when he was deemed to be a close contact of Jayson Tatum, who tested positive for COVID-19. At this stage, no reports have surfaced indicating that Green has tested positive himself, so the expectation is that he'll be cleared to return to the team once he completes the seven-day quarantine that has been standard for players ruled out through contact tracing. Since Tatum's positive test, the Celtics have had three consecutive games postponed, so Green won't actually end up missing any action until Friday's contest, assuming it ends up being played. Green is currently in the midst of his second quarantine period of the season, as he previously missed five games from Dec. 30 through Jan. 6 while he was isolated from the team.
Green (COVID-19 protocols) won't play Sunday against the Heat.
Boston will be without about half its roster Sunday, with Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Tristan Thompson and multiple other players going through the league's health and safety protocols. It's unclear if Green will also be sidelined for Tuesday's game at Chicago. Marcus Smart, Payton Pritchard, Jeff Teague and Daniel Theis are the regular rotation pieces set to play among the Celtics' eight available players.
Green is questionable for Sunday's game against the Heat due to health and safety protocols.
Green will presumably have to pass his coronavirus test before taking the court Sunday, as there's some contact tracing concerns. Keep an eye on the Celtics' injury report on gameday, as it's extensive.
Green (COVID-19) has been ruled out for the remainder of Boston's current road trip, which concludes Wednesday in Miami, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
The 27-year-old will remain sidelined for Monday's and Wednesday's contests as he continues to go through the NBA's health and safety protocols. Green should be considered questionable for Friday's matchup with the Wizards until he's officially cleared by the team.
Green (COVID-19) will be out for the "next couple of games," Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
It seems like Green's next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Heat, as the Celtics have a back-to-back against the Pistons on Sunday and Raptors on Monday.
Green (Covid-19) is out for Friday's contest against the Pistons.
Health and safety protocols will keep Green out for a second straight game. He has a chance to return Sunday, which is also a game against the Pistons in Detroit.
Green is out Wednesday against the Grizzlies due to health and safety protocols.
It's not clear how long Green will be sidelined, but his depth would have been nice with Tristan Thompson (hamstring) ruled out and Jayson Tatum (thumb) questionable.
Green delivered seven points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes in Tuesday's 116-111 win over the Pacers.
Coach Brad Stevens was looking for a spark off his bench as the Celtics looked sluggish during this road battle, and he got an energetic boost from both Green and rookie Payton Pritchard. Both reserves helped the Celtics grab the come-from-behind win. Green has now appeared in two of Boston's first four games, following last year's pattern of sporadic play. As you might guess, his 21 minutes were a season high. Green's minutes may decline when Boston decides to integrate rookie Aaron Nesmith into the rotation.
Green is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Bucks.
The 27-year-old started both preseason contests with Kemba Walker (knee) unavailable, but Tristan Thompson will instead receive the start for Boston. Coach Brad Stevens previously indicated he'll rotate the final starting spot in Walker's absence, so Green could move into the starting five in certain matchups.
Green will start Tuesday's preseason game at Philadelphia, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
Kemba Walker (knee) will be unavailable until mid-January, and Green will receive the first look in the starting lineup for the Celtics. Coach Brad Stevens plans to rotate players in that starting spot, so Green is unlikely to be a lineup fixture barring a breakout early season performance.
Green did not see the floor in Saturday's Game 3 win over the Heat.
Green was cleared to return from a knee injury, but he was not in the rotation as the Celtics bounced back after dropping the first two games of the series. Green had some moments as a bench piece throughout the season, but considering he missed several weeks in the bubble, he's unlikely to play a consistent role for Boston in this series.
Green (knee) is probable for Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.
After being out since Aug. 21 due to a knee injury, it seems like Green will suit up for a crucial Game 3 with the Celtics down 2-0. However, it seems unlikely that he'll play a significant role and can safely be avoided in DFS.
Green (knee) is out for Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat.
As expected, Green needs more time to recover from knee surgery. Even once he's cleared, he shouldn't see much time.
Green (knee) is doubtful for Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat.
As expected, Green likely needs more time to recover from right knee surgery. Even once he's cleared, he's unlikely to have a significant role.
Green (knee) was ruled out for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Heat.
The 27-year-old was initially considered doubtful for the first game of the series, so it's not a surprise he won't be suiting up. Even once available, Green is unlikely to fill a consistent role in Boston's rotation.
Green (knee) is not expected to play in Tuesday's Game 1 against the Heat.
Green underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee back on Aug. 25, and he appears to be close to a return to active status. Even if he's cleared to return at some point during the Eastern Conference finals, though, Green is unlikely to hold a consistent spot in the rotation -- especially with Gordon Hayward (ankle) nearing a return of his own.
Green underwent an arthroscopic knee procedure Tuesday and is expected to miss the next 2-to-3 weeks, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
The procedure addressed a small tear in his right meniscus, which would explain why Green was ruled out of the final two games of Boston's first-round series against the Sixers. Green left the bubble to have the surgery back in Boston, so in addition to recovering, he'll also be subject to a quarantine period if/when he returns to Orlando.
