Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Jeff Green joked that his left elbow is “still attached” after an awkward landing forced him from Friday’s game against the Miami Heat early in the fourth quarter and downplayed the severity of the injury while noting he should be able to play Saturday night in Orlando.
“Any time you hit a nerve, it feels numb down the whole arm,” said Green. “And it wouldn’t come back as fast I wanted to, because we were still playing. But I’m fine.”
Green spilled hard to the floor after a powerful driving dunk — one of three on the night — with 10:03 to play in the fourth quarter and, falling backward on the baseline, his elbow took the brunt of the tumble. He was wincing in pain on the bench as trainer Ed Lacerte put a shooting sleeve over the injury, but Green soon retreated to the locker room and did not return.

Jeff Green has been polarizing player for many Celtics fans. Some love him; love the potential, and the flashes of greatness. Some hate him simply because he was the piece we got back for Perkins, and others can’t stand him, think he’s overrated, not that good etc. Coming out of college he was hearing much of the same stuff, even from the NBA coaching circle. Before last night’s...
After a dunk, Jeff Green landed awkwardly on his left elbow. His injury forced his exit from last night's game against the Miami Heat early in the fourth quarter. Green explained why his injury initially caused him to grimace in pain and eventually prevented his return to the game: "Any time you hit a nerve, it feels numb down the whole arm," said Green. "And...
Tonight, Celtics fans finally got to relax and enjoy a wire-to-wire ass kicking. In a meaningless game in Orlando, Boston smokes the Magic 120-88. There were definitely some encouraging things that happened tonight. One of them was that KG looked to be showing no ill effects from his recent foot/ankle injury. Garnett had a productive night, going for 14 points on 7 of 8 shooting...
The Boston Celtics took their collective belt off to the Orlando Magic on Saturday.
There is no nice way to describe a game that ends with a scores of 120-88.

BOSTON — Jeff Green and P.J. Carlesimo were not fast friends. When Green came into the NBA as a rookie out of Georgetown in 2007, he found a coach with a reputation for being tough on players, who had an infamous run-in with a player a decade earlier and who was skeptical of Green’s ability to succeed in the NBA.
Yet as Green was going through his rehabilitation from heart surgery...
Somewhere in the deepest parts of their psyches, the Celtics harbor some distant and dreamy hope of making this postseason one to remember.
Sure, they are missing an All-Star point guard and a young forward who never seemed to play like a rookie, and their two best players are closing in on the twilights of their careers. The Celtics have done just enough to give themselves hope...

Things got pretty crazy last night. The undermanned Celtics took on the fully stocked Heat and lost and Kobe Bryant tore his achilles and is done for the year. Lost in the shuffle was Jeff Green and his elbow injury!
Turns out he's going to be A OK.
Jeff Green was injured after falling on his elbow after a dunk, he later left the game and didn't return. Still, Green brushed...
Laugh at me all you want, but I think tonight could’ve been much worse. Headed into this game, without KG & Pierce, Celtics fans thought that things might get really ugly. Well, despite a Heat 2nd Q for the ages, the C’s actually gave Miami a run for their money tonight. However. the Heat win 109-101. Boston came out swinging early, and behind a hot start from Jeff Green...
After outscoring Miami 27-17 in the first quarter, the daring duo of Jordan Crawford and Jeff Green wasn’t enough and the Celtics lost to the Heat 109-101. Surprisingly Miami’s Big Three all played, but with Pierce and Garnett taking the night off this game was predictably meaningless. Lets run through the bullet points:Jeff Green was the Celtics best player tonight, finishing...
The Boston Celtics lost to the defending-champion Heat Friday night to give up the season series 3 to 1.

Tonight, the Celtics woke up from their funk as they beat up the Magic, 120-88. Everybody who played in this one was great. Tonight was a great night to be a Celtic. Now they're just one win shy of a winning season. I'm confident they will get it.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the dominant performance of Courtney Lee. Lee led the Celtics tonight with 20 points on 7/10 shooting...
8 a.m. ET: Whoever plays will play, and the game will most likely be thrilling and chilling. We can only hope.
With Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh’s status all unclear, the Celtics and Heat will face off in Miami in a watered-down version of one of the NBA’s best rivalries. The Heat did not seem to miss a beat Wednesday without their stars...
The final Celtics Heat installment of the season lacked many storylines on Friday night. Coming in Doc Rivers announced the team would be without their veteran leaders Pierce and Garnett as they would both be sidelined with ankle left ankle injuries. As the Celtics look to prepare for the playoffs the team face two final back to back series. With a depleted roster Doc looked...
