Our buddy Chris Forsberg on Twitter has been tweeting updates live from practice as Doc and Danny Ainge gets us up to date on the latest with Jeff Green and the rest of the C’s walking wounded.
On Green, the C’s still sound evasive. Here’s Forsberg with plenty from Doc:
“Usually you pass your physical by now,” admitted Rivers. “Listen, I’ll give you guys more tomorrow for sure. But I’ve been around long enough to know that if you haven’t passed your physical yet, then there’s something going on. I just haven’t found out, but I’ve been around long enough to know there’s something going on.”
Rivers pleaded ignorance, saying he had been in basketball meetings all morning and hadn’t conferenced with Ainge yet to talk about the latest test results. Ainge admitted more results were in, but wouldn’t offer any indication about what was found.
“We will know more about Jeff tomorrow, [he’s] completing all tests and all results should be known by tomorrow afternoon,” said Ainge. “We’ll wait until then to give you guys all that information.”
Pressed on if the early results were good or bad, Ainge said, “It’s all based on perspective. But I really don’t want to talk about that. It’s not fair for me to share Jeff’s information right now. So we’ll wait for tomorrow.”
A couple other items of interest. Paul Pierce will sit out Sunday’s exhibition game against Toronto with his sore right heel. Rajon Rondo will try to play despite his sprained right ankle, and Sasha Pavlovic will miss practice today with an injured hand he suffered yesterday.
We’ll have plenty more on the Green situation as it develops.
