Dave McMenamin: Sixers guard Danny Green will undergo an MRI on his right calf strain on Saturday, sources tell ESPN.
Dave McMenamin: Doc Rivers on Danny Green's calf injury: "The next guy has to step up. Not sure who that is going to be yet. ... I'm not ruling Danny out but I'm pretty much ruling him out. I doubt if he plays the next game."
Rich Hoffman: Doc Rivers didn't have any official word on Danny Green, but offered this: "Just my doctor's degree, I would tell you calf injuries aren't great."
Justin Grasso: Danny Green looks like he’s in some pain but he’s not coming off the court #Sixers
Malika Andrews: Danny Green has been diagnosed with a right calf strain and will not return, the Sixers say.
Harrison Faigen: Frank Vogel says that Danny Green "has some tightness in his hip" but says it's "not an injury" and that Green is still "good to go." He says the training staff is just trying to keep it loose, and isn't sure if it's affecting Green's play, if at all.
Ohm Youngmisuk: Asked about his hip, Danny Green said he will warm up tonight and see how he feels but sounded like he’s playing. “I’m not worried about my body. I’ll worry when it’s over... We’ll see tonight how it goes.”
Dave McMenamin: The Lakers say Danny Green was experiencing hip tightness in Game 2 and will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
Eric Koreen: Danny Green told me he tweaked his ankle that was nearly recovered in overtime running into the cameras. Later told scrum he will see how bad it is tomorrow, but he thinks it should be fine. Still, Warriors losing one of the next two games would be nice.

Mike Ganter: Danny Green joins Lowry, Ibaka, Valanciunas all out for tonight's game with Cleveland. Green has a bruised knee.
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."
Jabari Young: Danny Green (illness) will not be on the bench tonight. Headed back to team hotel to rest. #Spurs staying over in Denver ...will fly to Cleveland in the morning.
Jeff McDonald: Pop says Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Danny Green are expected to play tonight against Denver, unless something goes awry with warm-ups.
Tom Orsborn: #Spurs have downgraded Tony Parker (sprained right ankle) from doubtful to out for tonight's game vs. Lakers. 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.
Michael C. Wright: Danny Green (tightness, left groin) is out for Monday against the Clippers. Kyle Anderson (left MCL sprain) remains out.
Tom Orsborn: In the strongest signal yet that Kawhi Leonard will make his return Tuesday night in Dallas, the just-released Spurs injury report lists him as PROBABLE for the game. Same for Danny Green, who missed the Phoenix game Saturday with a groin injury. #Spurs
Jeff McDonald: Spurs officially rule Danny Green (groin) out tonight against PHX. Joins a lengthy injured/rest list.
Kyle Anderson (left MCL sprain), Pau Gasol (rest), Manu Ginobili (rest), Kawhi Leonard (right quadriceps tendinopathy) and Tony Parker (return from injury management) are out for Saturday's game at Phoenix. Danny Green (tightness, left groin) is questionable.
Paul Garcia: Earlier the Spurs announced Danny Green and Joffrey Lauvergne have been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday’s game at Dallas. Kawhi, Parker and White all remain OUT.
Jeff McDonald: Danny Green (quad contusion) is back on the floor tonight in Portland. Gives Spurs their full starting five for first time since March 31.
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.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Brooklyn has tendered guard Bruce Brown a qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent, sources tell ESPN.
Bobby Marks: QO on Brown is $4,736,102. Brown has full bird rights and Brooklyn can bring him back despite being over the salary cap and deep into the luxury tax. However, signing Brown to a $10M contract for example would cost BKN an extra $36M toward the luxury tax.

Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul is continuing to put the spotlight on historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) with the arrival of a new college basketball tournament, The Undefeated has learned. Paul and the Basketball Hall of Fame have partnered in the development of the Chris Paul HBCU Tip-Off on Nov. 22-23 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. The two-day doubleheader will feature HBCUs Morehouse College, Virginia Union, West Virginia State and Winston-Salem State. The games are also expected to be televised nationally, a source said.
“This is a great honor to be invited to the Chris Paul HBCU Tip-Off with some of the best HBCUs in the country. It will also be a great opportunity for our young men to tour the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, right after my teammate and Virginia Union’s very own Ben Wallace goes into the Hall of Fame in September. I would like to thank Chris Paul for continuing to give HBCUs the opportunity to showcase our prestigious schools on the biggest stage,” Virginia Union coach Jay Butler said in a statement.
Kevin Love: Question: Why the f*ck can’t we be accepting or even open to the idea of someone breaking down to have a breakthrough? People are scared of facing their insecurities and perceived weaknesses (me being one of them)…and let’s be real, EVERYONE has their own set. This is because we use these insecurities and weaknesses against each other!!! What I’ve found and believe to be the truth is that once your insecurities are out in the open, this becomes your weapon, therefore disarming everyone else. YOU CAN’T USE ME AGAINST ME.
Kevin Love: Understand this 👉🏼… by being open about your struggles, you flip vulnerabilities into victories. The mental freedom comes in knowing once you put yourself out there, the other side is a reward of community and belonging. To Simone and others who have openly shared their story…You are helping many. Continue to lean into discomfort and vulnerability. Don’t deny your story — defy the ending. To those who aren’t venturing out into the “Arena”…we are all raised to believe emotions aren’t worthy of our attention. I recall reading a fitting term once: “emotion-phobic.” This isn’t a way to live. Your perspectives are understood but NO ONE benefits from withholding compassion. We are tribal beings. Why don’t we start acting like it?
