What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Noah Levick @NoahLevick
MRI confirmed Danny Green suffered tears of the ACL and LCL in his left knee last night, Sixers official says. – 3:31 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers confirm that Danny Green tore the ACL and LCL in his knee. He said during his season-ending media available that the LCL was the most painful. – 3:21 PM

Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
Danny Green on returning to the bench after his injury last night:
“I felt it was important that I be there with them. I tried to come out earlier, but the doc didn’t think it was a good idea. [I wanted to] help coaching, and encouraging, just to have my energy there for them.” – 3:09 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Doc Rivers praises Danny Green’s commitment to the game and the team, even after all these years in the league. Echoes what Green said that his injury really impacted the team in last night’s game. – 2:47 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Matisse Thybulle praised Danny Green for his dedication to the team. Said most players when they get hurt go take care of themselves. Green made a point of going out to the bench and sitting with his teammates last night. – 2:03 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Matisse Thybulle, on Danny Green: “Most guys when they get injured they go home, go to the doctor, whatever. Danny Green always shows up back on the court to support the team. I feel like that kind of just sums it all up. He’s really, really special.” – 2:00 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Danny Green adds that the team needs to mature more. If they were a mature team, maybe they don’t go 6 games with the Raptors in Round 1 and need blowouts for wake up calls #Sixers1:41 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Danny Green says the 76ers need to mature more as a team. Says if they had more intent and maturity they wouldn’t have had to go six games with Toronto, and wouldn’t need to be blown out at times to refocus. – 1:41 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Danny Green adds that he knew he was out for the game once the play happened. He said he heard some sounds that just weren’t good. He also adds that he wouldn’t have been able to play Game 7 if it got there. #Sixers1:38 PM
Justin Grasso @JGrasso_
Danny Green said when he went down with the injury last night, he knew he was done. “I heard some sounds that were not comforting,” he said #Sixers1:37 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Danny Green says he’s still waiting on the MRI of his knee. “It doesn’t feel as bad as it looked, I guess. They think it’s gonna be some ligament damage. Hopefully it’s not major…I think it’s pretty much just the outside of the knee. The LCL hurts the most.” – 1:36 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Danny Green said he is optimistic that his injury isn’t as bad as it looked. He’s waiting for MRI results to come back from this morning. – 1:36 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Danny Green is here now and said he got an MRI today and hasn’t gotten results yet. He should get those within an hour or so.
“Trying to keep the vibes positive.” – 1:35 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Danny Green said he got an MRI this morning, will learn the results within the next hour or so: “Trying to keep the vibes positive.” – 1:35 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Danny Green has joined us at the podium, with crutches and a pretty large air cast (I think that’s what it is, anyway) on his leg. Still waiting on MRI results. – 1:35 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Danny Green said he got an MRI on his left knee this morning, is expecting results in an hour or so. He came to the podium for his exit interview with crutches. – 1:35 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Five Degrees of Heat from Thursday night’s 99-90 victory in Philadelphia:…
1. Taking charge in the third quarter.
2. Another Jimmy Butler statement game.
3. Bam Adebayo handles Joel Embiid
4. Max Strus again double-doubles.
5. 76ers lose Danny Green early. – 7:51 AM

Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh
James Harden missed a floater with 8:54 left in the first quarter — the Danny Green injury play. That was the last 2-pointer that Harden took for the rest of the elimination game. – 9:48 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’m worried that we may have seen the last of Danny Green. If that’s a serious knee injury, he’s probably out all of next season. $10M contract for next year, but it’s fully non-guaranteed. I’ll be shocked if he’s not waived, if for no reason than it saves Philly big tax dollars. – 9:48 PM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
James Harden has taken fewer shots than all of Philly’s starters but Danny Green — and Green played three minutes before leaving with a knee injury. Harden has taken one more shot than Shake Milton. – 9:23 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Sixers who played more first-half minutes than usual due to Danny Green’s injury (Thybulle, Korkmaz, Niang) combined to go 0 for 4 from three-point range.
Max Strus is the game’s leading scorer at halftime with 16 points.
Sixers sure would like more than 4 FTAs in second half. – 8:16 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Danny Green has a nonguaranteed contract for next season. He’s almost 35. If this knee injury is one of the bad ones … this just sucks. – 7:40 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers say Danny Green (left knee) will not return tonight, which, yeah.
Puts Matisse Thybulle in a big spot. Already has two fouls and obviously the court gets smaller on the other end of the floor, which the Sixers have to work around. – 7:36 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers say Danny Green has a left knee injury and will not return. Rough injury season for him continues. – 7:35 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Matisse Thybulle is now in the game for Danny Green. Safe to say Philly is going to need an awful lot more from him than they’ve gotten basically these entire playoffs if Green can’t return. – 7:25 PM
JD Shaw @JShawNBA
Sixers veteran Danny Green (leg) has been carried to the locker room after Joel Embiid accidentally landed on him. – 7:25 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Danny Green is headed to the locker room. That certainly didn’t look good. That’s such a tough break for an important player to the team and considering the injuries he’s had to battle through this season. #Sixers7:23 PM

Justin Grasso @JGrasso_
Danny Green goes back to the locker room after being down for a bit. Couldn’t put any weight on his leg. Tough loss for the #Sixers right now – 7:23 PM
Jeff Zillgitt @JeffZillgitt
Joel Embiid crashed into Danny Green’s left leg. Hopefully, it’s just some immediate pain/discomfort, and he’ll be OK. – 7:23 PM
Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Danny Green goes down with left knee injury. Joel Embiid feel into Green’s knee. Green was carried off the court by 76ers teammates. – 7:23 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Danny Green is down in a lot of pain after Joel Embiid accidentally fell into his leg. That did not look good at all. – 7:21 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Danny Green is down in a ton of pain at the far end of the floor. Looked like Embiid’s weight came down on his leg – 7:21 PM
