MIAMI -- Celtics forward Jeff Green suffered a bruised left elbow during the fourth quarter of Friday's game against the Miami Heat.

Green landed hard on his left arm after a powerful dunk early in the quarter and was in apparent pain. After checking out of the game, he tried to put a sleeve over the elbow, but soon retreated to the locker room with trainer Ed Lacerte for further examination.

Green scored 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting (five of those misses were beyond the 3-point arc) to go along with eight rebounds and two assists over 36:25.

The Celtics were playing without veterans Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, who sat out due to sore ankles.
