The Brooklyn Nets are up 2-0 in their first-round series against the Boston Celtics as they aim for a run at an NBA title. With injuries galore in the regular season, they finally got their trio of Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant healthy just in time for the playoffs.

However, with a 2-0 lead, the Nets have been dealt another injury to a key depth piece.

Green – an NBA journeyman who has played for nine different teams since 2014- has been a key contributor off the bench for Steve Nash's squad. He appeared in 68 games and averaged more than 26 minutes per game with 11 points and 3.9 rebounds. As it is, the Nets bench is already thin. Nash has been going with a 4-man group of Green, Nico Claxton, Landry Shamet, and Bruce Brown.

For now, Green will be out and the Nets rookie head coach will have to find another bench piece to use. Fortunately for Brooklyn, they haven't had too many issues with Boston. The Nets won Game 1 by 11 and won Game 2 by 22.

While Jeff Green isn't the player he once was, he is still a key veteran that has NBA Finals experience and can make a contribution when they need it most.

Game 3 vs. the Celtics is Friday as the Nets look to go up 3-0 and all but end the Celtics' chances at moving onto the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
