Jeff Green able to see it through

Jeff Green able to see it through

PORTLAND, Maine — The Celtics got their first chance to see Jeff Green in this preseason last night. But, for a while, Green wasn’t seeing entirely well out of his right eye.

Gamebook: Green seeks game legs

PORTLAND, Maine -- Jeff Green was receiving another dose of eye drops when reporters entered the Boston Celtics' locker room following Wednesday's 92-89 loss to the Toronto Raptors, but his orb was the least of his concerns. Green is still trying to get his legs back after missing nearly two weeks of action, including the team's first four preseason games, due to a strained left calf. Green had some quality moments during Wednesday's game -- a two-handed slam on the game's first possession among them -- but was clearly still finding his way, and doing it with blurry vision after Toronto's...

Rapid reaction: Raptors 92, Celtics 89

PORTLAND, Maine -- It took Jeff Green a mere 15 seconds to remind us what he's capable of on the court. Green, who missed the team's first four exhibition games while battling a strained left calf, made his preseason debut Wednesday and, on the game's first possession, rolled free on a pick-and-roll with Evan Turner and delivered a two-handed slam. With maybe a touch of rust to blame, Green had more downs than ups from there. He finished with nine points, five rebounds, a steal, and an assist, while also committing three turnovers over 32 minutes of action as the Celtics fell to the Toronto...

Pregame: Turner, Green with starting 5

PORTLAND, Maine -- Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green makes his preseason debut on Wednesday night, starting at the small forward position. Evan Turner, bumped from that spot, slides down to take over the primary ball-handling role as the starting point guard against the Toronto Raptors. Green and Turner are joined by Avery Bradley, Jared Sullinger, and Kelly Olynyk. That has potential to be the lineup that Boston carries into the start of the regular season, particularly if Rajon Rondo is still rehabbing from a broken hand.

Should the Raptors Have an Interest in Jeff Green?

Should the Raptors Have an Interest in Jeff Green?

Based on total speculation, Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green may be on the trading block. Should the Raptors get involved? In Zach Lowe's latest mega-predictions column on Grantland he tosses the Raptors into the mix as a potential suitor for Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green. After rhyming off a few other teams and trade options, Lowe says: The Raptors have bad memories of Joe Johnson bulldozing them in the post, and they have all their own picks, plus the midsize expiring deals linked to Landry Fields and Chuck Hayes. It got me thinking. Jeff Green is a 6'9'', 235 pound forward that...

Jeff Green set to return Sunday, and will he start this season for the Celtics?

Brad Stevens said Jeff Green responded well to his return to practice on Monday after missing 10 days due to a left calf strain. CSNNEGreen, who led the Celtics in scoring last season with a 16.8 points per game average, has been out because of a left calf injury.It did not appear to be serious, but the Celtics were not in a hurry to bring him back for fear that it might evolve into a lingering-type injury.Stevens said he has received no medical reports indicating he should remain out or be limited in any fashion upon returning."So I'm assuming he's good to go tomorrow (versus Toronto),"...

Grantland's crazy prediction: Green traded?

Grantland's Zach Lowe offers 33 crazy predictions for the 2014-15 season, including one involving the Boston Celtics. A snippet: Boston will keep Rajon Rondo and trade Jeff Green Gather all the intel you’d like, and this will still be a borderline 50/50 guess on both guys. Boston has gauged the market for both over the last year or so, and its expected price for Rondo has been sky-high, per several league sources. That price will drop as Rondo’s deal ticks toward expiration, but the market for him is thin.

Practice: Green set to debut vs. Toronto

WALTHAM, Mass. -- It was a quiet day in CelticsLand with the league's announcement that the team will play in a 44-minute test game on Sunday in Brooklyn drawing more buzz than anything emanating from inside the practice gym. Here's a handful of nuggets from the team's pre-practice access: • Green likely to play vs. Toronto: Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Jeff Green appeared to respond well after returning to practice on Monday after missing 10 days due to a left calf strain.

Zach Lowe predicts Jeff Green will be traded (and Rondo won't)

Zach Lowe released his annual predictions column for the NBA season today and had some interesting thoughts on the futures of Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green in Boston. Grantland's Zach Lowe writes that the Celtics have tested the market for both Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green over the course of the past year, and he predicts they will hold on to Rondo but move on from Uncle Jeff. Lowe says, as expected, the Celtics have asked for a huge return for Rondo, but no team as of yet has been desperate enough to meet Danny Ainge's lofty asking price. Lowe seems to think that the best course of action for...

Jeff Green sits out Celtics practice again, he's "Frustrated" with loss of time

The Celtics have won both preseasons games without Jeff Green in the lineup. Evan Turner has filled in nicely, and has established something with the unit that has been out there in first two games. I like how the team looks with Turner so far, he's a bit undersized for a small forward, but he can score in different ways. Green, like Rondo has missed out on valuable time with some new teammates, and with Stevens up temp offensive scheme. ESPN Boston“After not missing any games the last couple of years, just missing practice, it sucks," Green said, according to the team's website. "I want to...

Practice: Frustrated Green sits again

Boston Celtics swingman Jeff Green expressed frustration Thursday with a lingering calf strain that will keep him off the floor until next week. Green injured himself during the team's intrasquad scrimmage on Friday and has not resumed basketball activities. Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters Thursday in Toronto that Green will likely be sidelined until at least Monday. That means Green will miss the team's first four exhibition games. After appearing in every regular-season game the past two seasons, Green vented about having to take it slow with this injury.
