Fred Katz: Jeff Green is out with lower back spasms
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.
Fred Katz: No Jeff Green tonight, per Vogel
Josh Robbins: Jeff Green will not play tonight against the Pistons, the Magic said.
