Draymond Green was quiet in the box score Thursday, finishing with seven points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals, six turnovers and five fouls in just 23 minutes of a 123-113 win over the Clippers.
He was not, however, quiet on the sidelines, picking up a technical foul, shouting at coach Steve Kerr, and while being babysat by David West and screaming from the sidelines for much of the third quarter. Green is still a front-runner for the Defensive Player of the Year Award and still a fantasy force on most nights, but he might have let his emotions get the best of him in this one.

Draymond Green won an informal Defensive Player of the Year poll conducted by ESPN at All-Star Weekend.

ESPN polled 80 media members who have postseason awards voting privileges. Green received 41 first-place votes, 28 second-place votes and six third-place votes. Rudy Gobert finished second and Kawhi Leonard came in third. Green is averaging a career-high 2.1 steals and 1.5 blocks. He is on pace to become just the eighth player in NBA history to average at least 2.0 steals and 1.5 blocks in a season.

Draymond Green was ejected for two technical fouls in the second quarter against the Kings on Wednesday.

He argued with the refs after a DeMarcus Cousins bucket to get both of those techs, so he will get an early start to his All-Star break. Green now has 11 technical fouls, so he's starting to get a little close to the automatic suspension. He finished with two points, two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 15 minutes. Green will be suiting up in New Orleans this weekend for the Western Conference.

Draymond Green played just 24 minutes and hit 1-of-5 shots for five points, two rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks in Monday's blowout 132-110 loss to the Nuggets.

GSW may have used all their juice against the Thunder on Saturday and got blown out by the Nuggets tonight. Green has scored six or fewer points in each of his last three games, but he is still racking up some ridiculous peripheral stats. He's averaging 10 points, 7.6 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 3.8 steals, 2.2 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers on 42 percent shooting over his last five games. The starters sat out the fourth quarter in this one, as Steve Kerr waved the white flag.

Draymond Green turned in one of the most unique triple-doubles in NBA history during a 122-107 win at Memphis on Friday, scoring four points with 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals, five blocks and two turnovers.

Not only was he the first player ever to post a triple-double without scoring 10 points, Green couldn't even get to the 5x5 due to the lack of scoring. He was able to set a franchise record for steals in a game and was just one off the NBA record, as well. The Warriors are also 18-0 when Green drops a triple-double, and Green's massive steal game bumped him from 1.9 per game to 2.1 in his 50th game of the season. He's one of a kind.

Draymond Green scored 16 points with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 43 minutes during a 109-106 loss to the Kings on Saturday.

He had a rough night and even missed the last shot for the loss. Late in the second quarter, Green suffered a knee contusion and wasn't able to come back in time to start the second half. He was able to check back in with 10:08 left in the third and looked 100 percent upon return. Green also had a really tough fall on his tailbone in the second half, but he was able to stay in the game. "I feel it now and I'm sure I'll feel it more in the morning," Green said after the game. The schedule worked out nicely for the Warriors because their next game isn't until Wednesday against the Bulls.

Draymond Green (right knee contusion) has returned in the third quarter on Saturday.

X-rays were negative on his knee for a fracture. Draymond was able to walk to the locker room under his own power, and he came back out to the bench a few minutes into the third. So far, it is good news following a scary injury. We'll let you know how he looks in the second half.
Feb 5 - 12:00 AM

Draymond Green suffered an apparent leg injury in the second quarter on Saturday.

He was driving to the basket on DeMarcus Cousins and fell into the first row under the basket. Green looked to have tweaked his right knee and had the trainers looking at it. After about a minute, he was able to walk to the locker room under his own power without assistance. We'll see who starts the second half. Stay tuned.

Draymond Green (shoulder) will play on Saturday night against the Kings.

He was probable yesterday and apparently everything went as expected at shootaround. Green only had bruising on his shoulder from Spencer Hawes tying him up on Wednesday, so there's no reason to think he'll be limited at all. Pat McCaw will go back to the bench while the Kings should have some trouble stopping Dray's playmaking tonight.
Feb 4 - 2:17 PM

Draymond Green (shoulder) is probable to play against the Kings on Saturday.

Both Green and coach Steve Kerr downplayed the injury on Thursday night, so his night off was more about getting his big man rest. Green should be back and close to 100 percent, so he's even a viable DFS play in a good matchup. Pat McCaw will move back to the bench.
Feb 3 - 7:34 PM

Draymond Green (shoulder) confirmed he is fine and not playing on Thursday was just to be cautious.

Coach Steve Kerr also said he viewed today as more of a day of rest for Draymond on the second half of a back-to-back set. Kerr also said Green just has a bruise, so it doesn't sound like it's structural. We're expecting him to play in Sacramento on Saturday.

Draymond Green (left shoulder contusion) is out for Thursday night's game against the Clippers.

He got tied up with Spencer Hawes last night and was in some visible pain for about two minutes. Green did stay in the game and he was a little bashful with the ball after that injury, so it may have been affecting him. The team calling it a contusion is a little more encouraging than a strain or sprain. Hopefully, this is more precautionary, so fantasy owners should sit tight. In Green's last game out, it was Kevon Looney starting and playing 18 minutes, but David West (thumb) was available. James Michael McAdoo has also played better lately and should be a factor. Looney and JMM would only be worth looks as streams with Looney getting the edge.
Feb 2 - 3:29 PM

Draymond Green struggled vs. the Heat on Monday with seven points on 3-of-8 shooting.

He missed all three of his triples and only hit 1-of-4 from the line, adding seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes. While it will go mostly unnoticed, Green had the best +/- rating of +8 tonight despite the underwhelming line, but expect more from him on Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

Draymond Green couldn't get his shot to drop during Sunday's win over the Magic, going 1-of-7 from the field on his way to six points, 10 boards, four assists and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

Serge Ibaka made life difficult for Green in this one, but his owners can fully expect a bounce-back performance with a much more favorable matchup against Miami on Monday.
Jan 22 - 2:27 PM

Draymond Green was key in the win over the Rockets on Friday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Dubs get all the credit for their offense, but their defense was a big reason why they won this game. Green actually only played eight minutes at the five in this game, which is somewhat surprising with how the Rockets count on perimeter scoring so much. Despite a three percent dip in usage and a four percent dip in true shooting percentage, Green is still a first-round value in standard leagues. It's not all about scoring, you guys.
