As the Sixers faced the Portland Trail Blazers, Green was one of a few regulars in the starting lineup as the 76ers were shorthanded.
After the game, Sixers head coach Doc Rivers expressed doubt regarding Green’s availability for the remainder of Philly’s difficult stretch on the road. After Green missed practice on Monday, he was ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the Utah Jazz.
And as the Sixers are set to face the Denver Nuggets on Thursday, Green won’t be available once again as he’s been ruled out for the second-straight time. With Green out of the lineup on Tuesday, Sixers veteran Shake Milton got the nod to start. While the Sixers have switched up their starting lineup many times throughout the year, Milton could find himself replacing Green again on Thursday.
