Green announcement expected Saturday
Green, who is sidelined by a mystery ailment discovered in a routine physical after he inked a one-year, $9 million deal with the Celtics at the start of the offseason, visited with more doctors Friday, Rivers noted earlier in the day, and the team had expected a potential announcement after Friday's intrasquad scrimmage at the TD Garden.
Instead, the wait and speculation continues.
"I will know for sure tomorrow," said Rivers. "I keep saying that, but I will. Danny called and just said, he’ll announce [the news on Saturday], so we’ll wait. Other than that, we’ll just leave it at that."
Rivers was asked if he was expecting to be without Green for an extended time and said only, "I'll let you guess."
