Philadelphia 76ers wing Danny Green has entered health and safety protocols, according to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Green becomes the fourth Sixer currently sidelined due to health and safety protocols, joining Georges Niang, Andre Drummond and Shake Milton.
Earlier this season, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle and Isaiah Joe were out for extended periods while in health and safety protocols.
Philadelphia has also been without Ben Simmons (personal reasons), Tyrese Maxey (left quad contusion and Furkan Korkmaz (non-COVID illness) lately. However, the latter two were not included in Wednesday’s injury report ahead of Thursday’s game with the Atlanta Hawks, another team ravaged by health and safety protocols.
