The injury bug seems pretty attached to the Philadelphia 76ers. After Joel Embiid’s recent scare with a small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee, the Sixers got another blow when danny green was forced to exit Game 3 of their series with the Atlanta Hawks.

According to Malika Andrews of ESPN, Green was seen hobbling as he headed to the locker room early in the first quarter of the contest. A few minutes later, the Sixers announced that the veteran shooting guard has been ruled out for the rest of the night due to a right calf strain.

The severity of the injury is still unknown, but it won’t be surprising if Danny Green misses the next few games in the Sixers-Hawks series. After all, recovering from the said ailment might need a week or more if it is serious.

Green’s defense in their postseason showdown with the Hawks has been much maligned, especially with Trae Young putting up big numbers and shots with him as a defender. However, there is no doubt that the 33-year-old remains a valuable piece that helps open up the floor for Philly.

While Green is struggling with his shots against the Hawks so far, he did show some solid flashes in their first-round series with the Washington wizards. Overall, in seven games in the 2021 postseason before his latest injury, he averaged 8.0 points on 43.8 percent shooting from the field and 37.8 percent from deep.

Here’s to hoping Green’s injury is not that serious and he’ll be able to return sooner rather than later.
