WALTHAM Jeff Green remains unable to practice with the Boston Celtics after the C's "found something" in his physical.

Danny Ainge, Boston's president of basketball operations, declined to say what the team discovered that warranted keeping him off the floor.

"We anticipate he'll be here soon in practice," Ainge said. "He's going through the tests again today and tomorrow, and he should be fine."

When asked whether it was an ankle or knee injury, Ainge responded, "I'm not going to tell you what it is."

He was later asked whether the injury would jeopardize the 1-year deal Green recently signed that's reportedly worth 9 million.

"No, no, no," Ainge said. "We're not even close to that. It's just precautionary. Practice just started today really, when we had our whole team here. It'll be resolved this week."
