Rivers hinted the results of those follow-up tests might be in, but that a consultation with additional doctors could be delaying the process. Asked how Green was handling the situation, Rivers admitted it was challenging for the player.
"Not great. One of the reasons he came in the day before [camp started last wee...

The Celtics need some more wing players now that Jeff Green may be sidelined for an indefinite period of time. Bogans is a tough, defensive minded player who has some experience guarding quality players. He would feel a roster need and would be a slight upgrade over Sasha Pavlovic, and a good bench player to integrate in the rotation.
