Philadelphia 76ers forward Danny Green exited Game 6 against the Miami Heat on Thursday after suffering an apparent left knee injury.
Sixers center Joel Embiid was driving baseline and accidentally landed on Green as he went for a layup.
Green’s knee was caught between Embiid and Heat forward PJ Tucker when the Philly center gave some friendly fire. Early reports fear that Green suffered severe ligament damage.
The 34-year-old had to be assisted off the court, unable to place weight on his left knee.
Philadelphia’s staff announced that Green was downgraded to OUT for the rest of Game 6 shortly after the injury.
OutKick’s ProFootballDoc reacted to the footage and assessed that Green “will miss a lot more than the rest of this game.”
Miami leads the series, 3-2, and is headed into the fourth quarter of Game 6 with momentum to close things out.
