Sixers’ Danny Green Leaves Game With Knee Injury; Ruled OUT For Game 6

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.
