“My body and my bones usually heal pretty well. I don’t have any bad habits. So, yeah, I think I’ll be back in time to help the team in the playoff run and show and prove that I’m able to still play at that level to help a team get a win in the playoffs.”

Given that this marquee shooter has already won championship rings with different teams, his experience and guidance is key for the younger set of players. Moreover, with Sixers looking to avenge their two dreadful semi-final exits, Green’s arrival in the second half of the next 2022-23 season could even be more-inspirational than ever. 

That being said, it is always an optimistic sign to witness a veteran wanting to continue in the action-packed league regardless of their injury concerns. Will Danny Green be able to add to his trophy cabinet? Remains to be seen.
