Jeff Green won’t be available to play Saturday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals versus the Bucks, but that doesn’t mean the Nets are ruling the injured big man out for the series. “Not really a timetable. He’s just out for [Saturday] and kind of day-to-day after that,” coach Steve Nash said. “So, just gonna continue to monitor it and then over the course of the next two, three days, hopefully get a clearer picture. “He’s working out. … I shouldn’t comment on that because in case I get it wrong, but I definitely see him with our strength and conditioning team and performance team, doing his thing.”
Brian Lewis: Jeff Green (left plantar fascia strain) is out tomorrow for the #Nets. #Bucks #NBA
Injured Brooklyn center Jeff Green isn’t expected to be re-evaluated until at least Sunday. The fact that he hasn’t already been ruled out of Saturday’s Eastern Conference semifinal Game 1 against Milwaukee can only be considered positive. Especially considering the Nets are certainly going to need every able body they can muster against Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. “Really just monitoring him. We’ll see. Keep monitoring it day-to-day and see if he’s ready to go,” coach Steve Nash said of Green. “He’s definitely progressing but we can’t commit either way if he’s available or not available for Saturday.”
Alex Schiffer: Steve Nash said the nets are monitoring Jeff Green. Said he's day-to-day and definitely progressing, but doesn't comment on his availability for Saturday's Game 1.

Candace Buckner: Jeff Green (who left the last game with a hip injury) will start tonight vs the #Pistons
LeBron James has nearly 36 million followers on Instagram, so there is a fair chance you saw his footage of him on roller skates Sunday, skating along with Jeff Green. [...] In Green's case, he will miss his third game out of the last four tonight because of lower back soreness. He was held out of Saturday's loss to Denver and on Saturday was also ruled out for tonight's game against the Pistons. In between, he went skating?
Cavs staff, in talking with cleveland.com, said while the appearance of Green on roller skates at a time when he can't play because of a back injury is not a great look, the team's intent was to keep Green out of games for a period of five days to rest his body from the rigors of NBA court battles. Roller skating should not be equated with the pounding the body takes during a game, they said. Green's back is improving -- he was moving and shooting well during the team's shootaround this morning.
Dave McMenamin: Ty Lue says that Jeff Green got a MRI on his lower back today that revealed no structural damage. The team will have Green rest the next two games in order to try to get his back better. Green already missed a game because of his back.
The Cavaliers said Jeff Green (lower back soreness) would miss tonight's game against the Denver Nuggets. This will be the second game out of the last three Green has missed with a back issue.

Bryn Forbes parted ways with Milwaukee after not playing in the last three games of the Finals, and league sources said the Brooklyn Nets are believed to be a leading candidate for him. Other teams to keep an eye on: Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas and New Orleans.
With teams and players able to negotiate free-agent deals beginning on Monday at 6:00pm ET, the 31-year-old will enter the new league year as a coveted three-and-D wing. “I’ve been in the league for a while,” Ennis told Hoops Rumors in a phone interview this week. “I’m in the league for a reason, obviously. Good vet, a good locker room guy, good teammate all-around. I just want to win. That’s my biggest thing.”
The veteran forward will enter free agency armed with a respectable 41-game sample that should make him an appealing under-the-radar target for teams in need of a wing. “I like Orlando a lot. When I first got here, I got an opportunity — and that’s all you can ask from a coach,” said Ennis, who was dealt from the Sixers to the Magic at the 2020 deadline. “I’ve definitely enjoyed the city and I’ve made a lot of good memories with my daughter.”
Keith Smith: Per a source: The Detroit Pistons have extended a qualifying offer to Two-Way player Saben Lee. He’s now a restricted free agent. The Pistons have also officially renounced the draft rights to Jaylen Hands.
