NBA Injury News

2:30 p.m.  ET Update: Jeff Green has been cleared to play in Game 4 on Sunday. Coach Nash told the media he doesn’t expect Green to play a ton of minutes and he will come off the bench behind Blake Griffin.


Sunday’s injury news comes exclusively from the early matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks.

Nets head coach Steve Nash confirmed James Harden will remain sidelined for Game 4 Sunday due to a tight hamstring that forced him to miss all but 43 seconds in the previous three games. Bruce Brown has been starting with Harden sidelined, and Mike James has seen an increased role off the bench. 

Nash also stated Jeff Green has been upgraded to questionable heading into Game 4. Green has played just two games this postseason due to a strained left plantar fascia. Green served as the backup center prior to being sidelined, and he’ll likely compete with Nic Claxton for minutes when cleared to play. However, it is possible his playing time is monitored following a two-week hiatus.
