Danny Green on returning to the bench after his injury last night:
“I felt it was important that I be there with them. I tried to come out earlier, but the doc didn’t think it was a good idea. [I wanted to] help coaching, and encouraging, just to have my energy there for them.” – 3:09 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Matisse Thybulle, on Danny Green: “Most guys when they get injured they go home, go to the doctor, whatever. Danny Green always shows up back on the court to support the team. I feel like that kind of just sums it all up. He’s really, really special.” – 2:00 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Danny Green adds that the team needs to mature more. If they were a mature team, maybe they don’t go 6 games with the Raptors in Round 1 and need blowouts for wake up calls #Sixers1:41 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Danny Green says the 76ers need to mature more as a team. Says if they had more intent and maturity they wouldn’t have had to go six games with Toronto, and wouldn’t need to be blown out at times to refocus. – 1:41 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Danny Green says he’s still waiting on the MRI of his knee. “It doesn’t feel as bad as it looked, I guess. They think it’s gonna be some ligament damage. Hopefully it’s not major…I think it’s pretty much just the outside of the knee. The LCL hurts the most.” – 1:36 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Danny Green said he is optimistic that his injury isn’t as bad as it looked. He’s waiting for MRI results to come back from this morning. – 1:36 PM

1. Taking charge in the third quarter.
2. Another Jimmy Butler statement game.
3. Bam Adebayo handles Joel Embiid
4. Max Strus again double-doubles.
5. 76ers lose Danny Green early. – 7:51 AM

Austin Krell @NBAKrell
Say what you want about Danny Green, but the Sixers looked like a team devoid of a calming presence on the floor following his injury.
But even that isn’t an excuse for the listless effort they put forth with their backs against the wall:

James Harden missed a floater with 8:54 left in the first quarter — the Danny Green injury play. That was the last 2-pointer that Harden took for the rest of the elimination game. – 9:48 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’m worried that we may have seen the last of Danny Green. If that’s a serious knee injury, he’s probably out all of next season. $10M contract for next year, but it’s fully non-guaranteed. I’ll be shocked if he’s not waived, if for no reason than it saves Philly big tax dollars. – 9:48 PM

Danny Green made it back out to the bench tonight. Rough end to a tough season for the #Sixers veteran pic.twitter.com/XZldm36UO49:36 PM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
James Harden has taken fewer shots than all of Philly’s starters but Danny Green — and Green played three minutes before leaving with a knee injury. Harden has taken one more shot than Shake Milton. – 9:23 PM

Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Sixers who played more first-half minutes than usual due to Danny Green’s injury (Thybulle, Korkmaz, Niang) combined to go 0 for 4 from three-point range.
Max Strus is the game’s leading scorer at halftime with 16 points.
Sixers sure would like more than 4 FTAs in second half. – 8:16 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers say Danny Green (left knee) will not return tonight, which, yeah.
Puts Matisse Thybulle in a big spot. Already has two fouls and obviously the court gets smaller on the other end of the floor, which the Sixers have to work around. – 7:36 PM
