Javonte Green Undergoes Procedure On Knee, Out 2-3 Weeks

Celtics forward Javonte Green underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee on Tuesday morning to address a small meniscus tear, the team announced today (via Twitter).

The procedure was performed at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, but Green will return to the NBA’s Orlando campus and rejoin the Celtics, according to the club. He’s expected to resume basketball activities in two or three weeks.

Green, who earned a roster spot in Boston last fall after signing a two-year, minimum-salary contract, appeared in 48 regular season games, recording 3.4 PPG and 1.9 RPG in 9.8 minutes per contest. He’s unlikely to see much – if any – playing time even if he’s able to get back on the court before the Celtics’ season ends.

The C’s will have to decide this offseason whether they want to retain Green, whose $1.52MM salary for 2020/21 is non-guaranteed.
