Jeff Green practices, calls injury "just another bruise"

Thankfully it sounds like Jeff Green is going to be just fine. He's probably in some residual pain and I wonder how hard it is to see out of that eye, but he's toughing it out.

Celtics forward Jeff Green practiced on Sunday sporting a shiner under his left eye and three chipped teeth, but admitted he's no worse for the wear after absorbing an elbow to the face from Ersan Ilyasova during Friday's overtime loss to the Bucks.

Masks have been all the rage in the NBA recently, but Jeff isn't going to join the crowd.

"No, I'm not wearing no mask," he said. "I ain't hiding it. Everybody sees it; everybody knows what it is. Nothing's broke, so I don't have any reason to wear a mask." "It's cool; added to my character," said Green. "Just another bruise that I've got to fight through."
