76ers: Danny Green ruled out for rest of Game 6 due to left knee injury
ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported that he will get an MRI to determine the severity of his left knee injury. But, Wojnarowski reported that sources told ESPN that there is “significant concern” regarding Green’s left knee injury.
Prior to the injury, Green scored three points on his lone shot attempt and recorded one steal in three minutes of playing time.
Entering Game 6, Green averaged 9.1 points and 3.4 rebounds while shooting 39.8-percent from the field and 40.0-percent from the three-point line in 11 playoff games.
With Green out, the rest of the team will have to really step up to win. If they do not, their season will end, and their streak of not making it past the second round will extend to 21 years.
