The Philadelphia 76ers are in the middle of what they hope to be will be a title run in these 2021 playoffs, but they have seemed to hit a little bump in the road as they will be missing a key piece of their lineup.
Veteran Danny Green left Friday’s Game 3 win over the Atlanta Hawks due to a right calf strain and he was replaced by Furkan Korkmaz who played well in his absence. After some tests, it has been determined that Green will now miss 2-to-3 weeks with the injury and with a possible Eastern Conference Finals berth coming up shortly, they will definitely miss him.
With that being said, this now offers up an opportunity for Korkmaz and others to get the job done. The Sixers have a lot of really good young players they can turn to. Korkmaz, Shake Milton, and Tyrese Maxey have all had nice moments in these playoffs and they’ll have to keep it going in Green’s absence.
