Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers starting guard Danny Green exited Friday night’s 127-111 win over the Hawks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series because of a right calf strain and did not return.

The 12-year veteran will undergo an MRI on his calf on Saturday, sources told ESPN.

“It’s a calf injury. Just my doctor’s degree, I would tell you that calf injuries aren’t great,” Sixers coach Doc Rivers said after the game.

The three-time NBA champion averaged 4.5 points through the first two games of the second round, shooting just 1-for-9 from 3, but dished a career-high eight assists in Philadelphia’s 118-102 win in Game 2 to help even the series. “I’m not ruling Danny out, but I’m pretty much ruling him out. I doubt if he plays the next game.”

Korkmaz started the second half in Green’s place.
