Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green empathized with Kawhi Leonard desiring a second opinion on his injured quadriceps, after learning recently during an exit physical in San Antonio that he had been playing with a torn groin that went undetected by the Spurs.
Green suffered the injury Dec. 8 against the Boston Celtics. "I get an MRI the next day," Green said. "[It says] slight strain, take a couple weeks off. So we do the rehab, do everything we're supposed to do. After some time, it healed. I tried to play again. Certain days, I'd have bad days. Some days would be good. I'd feel it. My agent [Joe Branch said], 'Maybe we should get a second opinion.' I didn't want to because I have full faith and believe in the Spurs' staff. They've always been great to me. They've always done right by me. They've always done a hell of a job."
According to sources, Leonard and his representatives believed the Spurs misdiagnosed the forward's quadriceps injury as tendinopathy. Green, meanwhile, played 70 games for the Spurs in 2017-18 after missing five games in December due to the groin injury. "Everybody should get a second opinion just to see another perspective," he said.
You received that PRP shot. Are you feeling better now? Danny Green: "After the shot, I’m feeling OK. Just getting some rest right now, rehabbing and doing some strength stuff. I didn’t take much time off from the weight room, but I did (take time off) from the court."

Danny Green (tightness, left groin) is also out after being downgraded from questionable. Kawhi Leonard (left shoulder strain) and Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis) were ruled out Wednesday.
Tom Orsborn: Leonard (shoulder) has been ruled out for tomorrow vs. Lakers, #Spurs say. It will be his 3rd straight game missed w/ that injury. Also, Parker (sprained right ankle) is doubtful, Gay (heel) is out and Green (groin) is questionable).
Paul Garcia: The Spurs announced Rudy Gay and Danny Green are OUT Friday vs Phoenix. Kawhi isn’t on the injury report, so he’s expected to play.
Paul Garcia: Spurs’ injury report for tonight’s game at Sacramento: Green (groin), Kawhi (return from injury management) - both OUT Gasol (groin) - PROBABLE
Tom Orsborn: #Spurs just corrected their injury report to say that Gasol (tightness, right groin) and Green (tightness, left groin) are questionable for tonight's game. The first report issued said they would be out.
Tom Orsborn: Parker and Leonard will sit out Wednesday night's game at Portland due to their injury management programs, according to the #Spurs injury report. On the bright side for the club, Anderson (left MCL sprain) and Green (tightness, left groin) are probable.

Paul Garcia: Pop says Dejounte Murray might be able to play Monday and/or Wednesday. Green is ok, the Spurs just want to be very cautious with him.
Although Danny Green said he is ready to play in Wednesday night’s outing against the Kings, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suggested the shooting guard’s status would be a game-time decision. Asked if Green was good to go after the Spurs listed him as questionable with a sore groin, Popovich said, “I think so, but I’m not sure yet.” Popovich kept Green on the bench for the second half of Monday’s win over Miami after he suffered the injury in the first half.
Paul Garcia: Spurs announce Danny Green will make his season debut tonight vs the Rockets, but Tony Parker is still out. SA starters yet to play together
“Jon (Jonathon Simmons), will probably miss a few days, maybe,” said Popovich. “Danny will be weeks.” The Spurs officially announced Green has been diagnosed with a left quad strain and he’s expected to miss approximately three weeks of play.
Michael C. Wright: Danny Green participated fully in practice on Wednesday. He's been out for a while, slowed by a bruised thigh. es.pn/2cTOUqM
Danny Green’s quest to bounce back from last season’s sub-par shooting performance has been put on hold due to a minor injury. A bruised left thigh forced the Spurs’ starting shooting guard to sit out the first training camp practice Tuesday morning and also an evening session. Green suffered the injury during open-gym workouts last week, a team spokesman said. Although it’s not considered serious, the ailment is expected to sideline him for a few days.

It’s believed that the Knicks could pivot to trying to make a run at San Antonio’s Dejounte Murray via trade or another target of Murray’s caliber using the many draft picks they’ve stockpiled even if Rose, as increasingly expected, secures Brunson’s signature.
Jon Krawczynski on the Timberwolves: I do think that they’ve had some trade discussions on Dejounte Murray, on Capela, on Rudy Gobert, on a lot of different fronts. I don’t think anything is close right now on that side of the equation.
The Dallas Mavericks have been anticipating Jalen Brunson’s likely departure for weeks, multiple league sources tell The Athletic, and it’s now seen as a certainty that the 25-year-old guard will sign with the New York Knicks when free agency opens on Thursday.
Actual negotiations aren’t supposed to start until after 6 PM ET on Thursday evening, but league sources say there was a growing sense of surrender in Dallas on Tuesday to the idea that Brunson indeed wants all those opportunities in New York — essentially that he wants to be a Knick.
While only Dallas can offer a five-year contract and still has the ability to put a richer offer on the table than New York, sources indicate that the Mavericks don’t expect to be able to sway Brunson at this point. It is more likely, sources say, that Dallas will try to engage the Knicks in sign-and-trade talks to try to salvage a measure of compensation (and perhaps a trade exception) by trying to collaborate with New York on a deal.
Ian Begley: Sources confirmed ESPN report that Alec Burks & Nerlens Noel will be traded to DET, which opens up roughly $30M in cap space (depending on nonguaranteed NYK salaries). This gives NYK enough room to make competitive offer to FA Jalen Brunson, whom they are favorites to land.
The source close to Brunson believes it is important for the Knicks to lay out a detailed plan of how they will become a contender if Brunson joins them. That means everyone being aligned — front office, coaches, players — with one mission in mind. Brunson, the source said, will create a pros-and-cons list when it comes time to make a decision.
