Jeff Green's bad luck continued late in Friday's overtime loss to the Bucks at TD Garden. While fighting for a loose ball under the Celtics basket with 18.5 seconds left in overtime, Green was elbowed in the left side of his face by Milwaukee's Ersan Ilyasova and suffered a bruised left cheek and chipped teeth, according to the Celtics in a postgame announcement.
Green was down on the court for several minutes being tended to by team doctor Brian McKeon and head trainer Ed Lacerte before they escorted Green off the court holding a towel to the left side of his face.
Green did not speak after the game, which the Bucks won, 99-94, in overtime. Green was fighting for position on a play that eventually ended in a foul on Paul Pierce.
Green finished 14 points in 29 minutes off the bench for Boston. For more, visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics .
