Long Island’s Danny Green suffers nasty leg injury during Game 6 of NBA Eastern semifinals


North Babylon native and three-time NBA champion Danny Green had to be carried off the court in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals after suffering what appears to be a knee injury.

The 76ers forward banged legs with teammate Joel Embiid following a shot attempt against the Miami Heat. Green’s left knee gets caught under 280-pound Embiid. Watch the injury below.

After being helped off the court, Green was ruled out for the rest of the contest. The Sixers would go on to lose the must-win game, 99-90, and were eliminated from the playoffs. The series ended 4-2.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, there is concern that Green suffered a “serious injury” and will undergo an MRI.

Green was a key veteran during the Philadelphia’s playoff run and helped lead the team from deep, shooting 40% from 3-point range. His work earned the love of the Sixers fans. This is them chanting in support of Green following his injury.

Green, who turns 35 next month, has one year, $10 million unguranteed left on his contract.
