Boston Celtics small forward Jeff Green recently underwent successful heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. Doctors have confirmed that the four-year veteran will miss the entire 2011-12 season, hoping to see him return by the start of next season if all goes well in the recovering process.
“They’re saying it went great. Obviously our thoughts, our prayers and every part of our being is with Jeff right now,” said Boston head coach Doc Rivers. “The second news we want to hear is that he’ll be able to play again. That would be terrific. I don’t care if it’s with us – I want it to be with us – I just want him to. Really, at the end of the day, that’s what we want.”
The Celtics are currently resting up before their highly anticipated matchup against the defending champion Dallas Mavericks tomorrow night. The Chicago Bulls will then make their way to TD Garden Friday, January 13th.
