The Nets have ruled out veteran forward Jeff Green for Game 1 of their playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

Green has a left plantar fascia strain that has kept him out since May 25.

Head coach Steve Nash told reporters on May 27 that Green will be re-evaluated in 10 days. The 34-year-old played just 12 minutes against the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of their first-round series, after logging 27 minutes in Game 1.

Green averaged 11.0 points in 27 minutes per game this season over 68 games with 38 starts. He also shot a career-best 41.2 percent from beyond the arc with 1.5 makes on 3.7 attempts per game.

The Nets have relied on Blake Griffin (20.4 minutes per game) and Nicolas Claxton (13.2 minutes per game) in Green's absence during the postseason.
