The Philadelphia 76ers were knocked out of the playoffs at a solid 99-90 by the Miami Heat on Thursday night.

Although it was a heartbreaking disappointment, another moment from the game was even more difficult.

Danny Green was helped to return to the locker room after his teammate Joel Embed accidentally fell on his left leg and suffered an ugly knee injury.

He was dropped for the rest of the game but now there are rumors that the injury could be quite serious.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that there are now “significant concerns about the severity of left knee injuries” before MRI.

How bad can things be for Green and what could be next for the Guard?

Get well soon, Green

Green started all five games of the 76ers-Heat series and averaged 9.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1 steal as well as landing 2.8 threes per game.

He is not the most productive player for the team but, being in the previous squad, he was the one to whom the team often turned.

Green will turn 35 next month and has been playing in the NBA for 13 seasons now.

Throughout his career, he has spent time with the Green 76ers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Toronto Raptors, and in particular the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs.

His career average averaged 8.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 in one game.

Hopefully, Green’s injury is not so severe and he will be able to return to court for training camp.

However, after re-watching the clip, you will understand why some people are afraid that it could be the last accident of their career.

If Green needs surgery and rehabilitation, he will have plenty of time for both as his team is out of the playoffs.

The team and all its fans – and indeed all NBA fans – hope to see him on the floor again in a few months.
