As the team finished through a walkthrough at TD Garden this morning, we should expect to know more about Jeff Green’s health and ability to participate with the C’s this season moving forward. Doc just spoke to reporters at the Garden this morning and informed them that Green is meeting with more doctors today, and the team should announce a resolution this evening, according to Paul Flannery of WEEI.
For now though, Mark Murphy of The Boston Herald has some insight about Green’s potential condition according to sources close to Jeff:
The 25-year-old has said the trouble was detected during a stress test, which would likely indicate a heart issue, but he has not expanded on the matter and declined comment yesterday as he shot around before the team’s workout.
According to sources close to Green, his health is expected to be fine in the long run, but there is a question now as to how long it will take to get him there. The Celtics are said to be concerned on both fronts.
Physicians are still dealing with test results, and it will be determined whether Green needs to undergo a procedure or if his condition can be controlled with medication.
A very delicate situation for both sides. Putting all health concerns aside, which come first and foremost obviously, this development leaves you wondering what exactly would be the team’s Plan B if Green was out for an extended length of time? Is Plan B (Sasha Pavlovic) already on the roster? Would bringing in Michael Redd for more potential offensive firepower help at all? More questions than answers at this point obviously, but we should know much more tonight. CelticsHub will be live at the Garden covering it all.
