Jeff Green Happy To Be Alive, Looks Forward To Returning To NBA

Jeff Green may not be able to make a title run with the Boston Celtics this season, but he is happy that a routine physical caught a condition that with the proper treatment, will let him play once again.

During his pre-season physical with the Celtics the doctors found an aortic aneurysm. The potentially fatal condition will be corrected with surgery, and Green will attempt to make a comeback next season, according to the Boston Globe.

“I’m very relieved, because I can play basketball again,’’ he told the paper. “It’s a blessing that it was found because you never know what could happen.’’

“When the doctors give me the go,” Green continued. “I’m going to take it to another level.’’

Last season Green averaged 13.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in 75 contests between the Boston Celtics and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
