Jeff Green may need a procedure, and he might be out for a while, and it probably won’t affect him in the long-term, but the Celtics are concerned it might affect him in the long-term, and really, nobody knows for sure. (Boston Herald)

The 25-year-old has said the trouble was detected during a stress test, which would likely indicate a heart issue, but he has not expanded on the matter and declined comment yesterday as he shot around before the team’s workout.

According to sources close to Green, his health is expected to be fine in the long run, but there is a question now as to how long it will take to get him there. The Celtics are said to be concerned on both fronts.

Physicians are still dealing with test results, and it will be determined whether Green needs to undergo a procedure or if his condition can be controlled with medication.

This probably doesn’t mean anything, but: As Scott Souza mentioned, Green does not seem overly disturbed on Twitter, for whatever that’s worth. He told one follower, “I’ll be fine. I’m a soldier.” He told another, “I’ll be okay. Thanks for asking.” He joked and retweeted and repeatedly said “haha” (or occasionally “hahaha”) to a number of his followers throughout Thursday evening, enjoying social media even while the details of his reportedly still-unresolved medical issues remained hidden, at least from the public.

I hope Green’s alright. Heart issues are (obviously) serious things. The Celtics need him in the lineup, but far more importantly, I hope his ticker’s working right.
