GREEN BACK WITH CELTICS AND FULLY RECOVERED
Wed, 19 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

The questions on his health are inevitable after he sat out all of last season following the surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm, but Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green doesn’t waste much time stressing that he’s physically prepared for the 2012-13 campaign.

“Fully recovered, part of the team, cleared for everything,” Green declared after joining squad Dionte Christmas and Kris Joseph to run a basketball clinic at the Holland Elementary School in Dorchester, as a part of a community service day alongside other members.

Green knows he is going to be peppered with questions about his health, but having not played an NBA game in nearly 16 months; it is obvious his focus now is on what lies ahead. That is the reason why when questioned about the toughest hurdle in getting back on the floor, he grins and declares, “Nothing.”

To be certain, there is rust to shake.

“Getting in a groove, getting in a rhythm — but it will come,” Green announced. “We still have 2 months till the beginning of the regular season. That stuff will come. I’ve actually been able to do everything — contact, my movements, my shot is there, and my lift is there. All is coming along.” Baseball betting lines

Green signed a 4-year, $36 million agreement with the Celtics last month despite of sitting out all of last season when a preseason screening detected the aneurysm. He went through surgery at the renowned Cleveland Clinic and rehabbed at times around the team with a target of returning to Boston this season.

Originally acquired from Oklahoma City at the trade cut off point in Feb 2011, Green didn’t feel just like he put his best foot forward in his abbreviated time with the Celtics. A year off gave the 26-year-old time to assess his game, and he hopes to make a bigger effect on the 2012-13 squad.

“Just probably being more assertive, more aggressive in certain situations,” Green announced of changes he would really like to make in his approach. “That’s about it. My game pretty much speaks for itself — a guy who can play multiple positions … Attack in different situations. My game is what it is. I just have to build upon different things. Just show it out there on the court.”

That has a renewed focus on rebounding, one of his weaker points.

“(Rebounding back is about) being assertive toward the ball,” Green expounded. “It’s a tough thing, but you just have to go out there and want to do it.”

Green brushed aside talk about more playing time at little forward, saying, “I can play the 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 — whatever (coach) Doc (Rivers) puts me at, that’s where I am going to be.” He also gushed about the potential for running with Rajon Rondo in transition.

Green has been participating in informal workouts with his colleagues with training camp set to open later this month. But it’s not just being back on the court that excites him; getting back in the community is important, also.

“I had a lot of fun (with the basketball clinic). It felt good to get back out here in the community,” he said.
