Draymond Green hit just 1-of-4 shots for the second straight game and finished with five points, five rebounds, eight assists and four steals in 28 minutes of Monday's blowout win over the Suns.
He's scored five or fewer points in three of his four games this season, but is still rebounding, assisting and stealing the ball. He should start scoring more than he has up to this point, but that will always be his weakest category while competing for shots with Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and even JaVale McGee. But you didn't draft Green to get you 20 points a night. He's worth a buy-low offer if you can find a frustrated owner. Outside of a 6-of-12 shooting night last Friday, Green is 3-of-14 from the floor in his other three games. Oct 23 - 1:57 AM

Draymond Green (right ankle sprain) is listed as probable for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Green tweaked his ankle in the third quarter of the Warriors win over Utah on Friday night. He limped to the locker room but returned in the fourth quarter after having the ankle re-taped, and looked unencumbered. This is the front end of a back-to-back for the Warriors, as they also will take on the Suns Monday night, but Green is expected to suit up.

Draymond Green scored 14 points in Friday's win over the Jazz, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and one triple in 34 minutes.

He was 6-of-12 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line with five turnovers. Green did go back to the locker room in the third quarter with a tweaked ankle, but returned a couple minutes into the fourth after getting re-taped. The Warriors have a back-to-back set coming up on Sunday and Monday vs. the Nuggets and Suns, so we'll be monitoring his status in case his ankle swells up on him overnight. For now, we'll leave him off the injury report.

Draymond Green (ankle) checked back into Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

He was only in the locker room for a few minutes and initiated the offense on his first possession back in. Check back after the game for another update.

Draymond Green tweaked his ankle on Friday vs. the Jazz and went back to the locker room.

There's no word on the severity but he did have a noticeable limp. Hopefully he's just getting re-taped because we haven't heard anything from the reporters or Warriors PR yet. Stay tuned.

Draymond Green stated during a recent interview that he'd like to spend his entire career with the Warriors.

"I want to be here a long time," said Green. "I want to spend my career here. I am committed to being here." Green added that he'll be "very active" during the contract negotiation process in 2020, and hinted that he may not be looking for a max contract. "Rob Covington signed a great deal for their team and a great deal for himself... He was able to get a deal done, made nice money, didn’t completely strap their team. It was good for both sides."

Draymond Green hit just 1-of-6 field goals for two points, 13 rebounds, five assists, three steals and six turnovers in 33 minutes in Tuesday's opening win against the Thunder.

Green's scoring will be a buzzkill all year, but he does enough of everything else to be a fantasy maniac. Both teams looked a bit rusty tonight, but Green's shot will be better than this on most nights. If you drafted him, rest assured that the shooting percentage will rise, and this may be his season high for turnovers this year.

Draymond Green said he's not too concerned with his conditioning.

Green sat out the first couple weeks of training camp with a sore knee, and head coach Steve Kerr said he'll be playing Green in shorter bursts for the first few games of the year, but it shouldn't be long before his conditioning gets back to where it needs to be. Go ahead and get him active for tonight's game.
Oct 16 - 3:19 PM

Steve Kerr said that Draymond Green (sore left knee) will likely be working with a minutes limit for the first few games of the season.

Green missed the first few weeks of camp with the sore knee, but he was able to get out there for the final two preseason games and he'll be good to go for opening night. Green's conditioning isn't quite where it needs to be right now, and while the sore knee doesn't seem like a major issue, it's pretty obvious that Golden State will be extremely cautious with their main guys throughout the regular-season. That potential for random rest makes Green a slightly risky, early-round target.
Oct 14 - 4:06 PM

Draymond Green (sore left knee) is expected to play in the Warriors preseason finale on Friday.

With this, Green is on track to play in the Warriors regular season opener on Tuesday. Coach Steve Kerr said that Green went through a short practice on Thursday and will be on a minutes limit upon his return. He might get off to a slow start, but he's still worth drafting in the early rounds.
Oct 11 - 8:17 PM

Steve Kerr is expecting Draymond Green (sore left knee) to be ready for the regular-season opener.

"We’re going to be cautious," Kerr said. "He’s still improving, but we feel more comfortable giving him one more day. … Then we have six days until the opener. The plan is to start practice [Thursday] and play him on Friday. He’ll be ready for the opener." Green hasn't practiced in over a week, but he'd likely be playing if the games mattered. We wouldn't let a sore knee dramatically alter his draft stock.
Oct 10 - 10:59 AM

Draymond Green (sore left knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's exhibition game against the Lakers.

Green has been making progress, but the Warriors will be extra cautious with their studs while the games are meaningless. There's some hope that he'll be able to play on Friday, but if there's any doubt at all about that knee, you can bank on Green watching from the sidelines. To be clear, this doesn't sound like anything serious and Green remains a solid, early-round target.
Oct 9 - 3:30 PM

Draymond Green (sore left knee) participated at Monday's shootaround, but he'll remain on the sidelines vs. the Suns.

Green got through shootaround without issue, and the next step will be for him going through a full contact practice on Tuesday. If all goes well, he may be able to get back to the court for Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Lakers, but the Dubs will be extremely cautious here.
Oct 8 - 2:43 PM

Draymond Green (sore left knee) did not practice on Sunday and will remain on the sidelines for Monday's exhibition game against the Suns.

While Green hasn't practiced in a week, he is making progress and the plan is for him to go through shootaround on Monday and practice on Tuesday with the hopes of getting him back out there on Wednesday vs. the Lakers. The sore knee seems very minor, but the Dubs will be extremely cautious in bringing him back.
Oct 7 - 6:56 PM

Draymond Green's knee injury could sideline him the rest of the week, and he's been ruled out for Friday's game in Seattle.

Green experienced soreness on Tuesday and it sidelined him during practice, and the Warriors have already ruled him out for Friday's game. "Just being careful," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Wednesday. "He still had a little inflammation this morning." Green had trouble staying healthy last season, so the Warriors have even more incentive to rest him down the stretch in 2018-19 to keep him fresh for the playoffs. It makes sense to move him down draft boards a bit. Jonas Jerebko is expected to start in his place Friday.
