Draymond Green can finally stop worrying and start enjoying being only the third player in Michigan State history to record a triple-double.

Tests on teammate Delvon Roe's right knee revealed no structural damage, the school announced in a press release Friday night.

Roe, however, remains questionable for Tuesday's game at Ohio State while being listed as "day-to-day."

Roe was injured in the final seconds of Thursday's 75-57 victory over Penn State when he caught a long pass from Green and got fouled hard going for a lay-up. Roe made the shot, which completed the triple-double for Green, who got his 10th assist to go with 15 points and 14 rebounds.

If not for trying to get Green another assist, Roe likely wouldn't have been injured. MSU probably would have run out the clock rather than go hard for an otherwise meaningless basket.

Green joined Magic Johnson and Charlie Bell as the only Spartans to accomplish the rare feat.

"I was happy about the triple-double until I saw he went down," Green said after the game about Roe. "I came off that high real quick. I ran down there. I'm asking Delvon is he all right. He's asking me did he make the lay-up for me.

"I think he'll be fine, but I still want to know for sure."

Now he knows.
