Green initially said he wasn't aware of just how serious the injury was until he attempted to walk off the court after spending time on the court in pain and his knee buckled when he stood up."I was trying to get in there, saw him drive to the basket, trying to get inside position to either get a rebound or not let the other guy double," Green said during his exit interview earlier Friday afternoon, before he got the results of his MRI that morning. Then I realized it's probably gonna take some time."I heard some sounds that were not comforting."Green had been saying, when his interview began, that he was optimistic and hopeful the injury wouldn't be "as bad as it looked" and that he could potentially avoid knee surgery and be back in time for the start of next season. just to see my guys and say goodbye to the fans."Green's injury closed an up-and-down season for him, as he wasn't a regular starter for the first time in a decade and had his lowest average points and minutes per game since his first two seasons in the league, when he was shuttling back and forth between the NBA and the G League (then called the D-League) as a fringe player for the Cleveland Cavaliers and San Antonio Spurs. It was a roller-coaster year, especially with the injuries."When asked about what transpired over the course of the season with the team's play on the court, Green became the latest player to highlight some version of mental toughness as a problem plaguing the roster.It was noteworthy how often it came up over the past 24 hours, with at least three players -- Green, Tobias Harris and Georges Niang -- all highlighting some aspect of mental toughness, intent or focus as something that has to change moving forward."We've been through a lot throughout the season," Green said.
