Draymond Green played on Monday against the Nets despite words from Steve Kerr indicating he'd prefer to rest him, and finished with three points, 11 boards, four assists, two steals and one block.
Nothing to see here, folks. We'll let you know if we hear anything about rest and he should remain locked into lineups. Mar 2 - 11:06 PM

Steve Kerr said he would like to get Draymond Green some rest after playing 44 minutes on Sunday, but added tonight's matchup probably won't allow it.

In other words, it looks like Green will play, but it might only be 30-33 minutes. To be clear it's all a guessing game right now, but owners in standard leagues should start Green as of right now. If you're in DFS, steering clear of Dray makes the most sense.

Draymond Green pitched in 14 points, two 3-pointers, 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks with only one turnover during Sunday's thrilling road win in Boston.

Green made only 4-of-13 shots but he filled it up everywhere else and his versatility once again proved crucial for the Warriors, as he started at center for stretches to neutralize the Celtics' small lineups. He's a top-30 player over the past month and vaults into the top-20 with turnovers counted in 9-cat leagues.
Mar 1 - 8:27 PM

Draymond Green was everywhere against the Raptors in 28 minutes during a 113-89 win on Friday with 17 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

He made 6-of-9 from the field, hit both free throws and didn't turn the ball over for a nine-category line. Green is putting up elite value on the season, averaging 11.2 points, 8.1 boards 3.6 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 treys.

Draymond Green recorded five steals in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with 16 points, eight boards and four assists in 38 minutes.

The five steals were one off his career-high of six which was set against the Wolves on Dec. 27, but this was actually just the fifth game this season in which he didn't record either a block or steal. Green has emerged as a fantasy stud for arguably the best team in the NBA, and he is going to be one of the most fun players to own for years to come.

The Warriors fell to the Pacers on Sunday, as Draymond Green fouled out with six points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and three blocks.

Dray's shot was off but his across-the-board production is familiar to his fantasy owners, who have reveled in top-30 production all season. He's slipped a bit over the past month but remains a quality early-round value down the stretch, and he's on pace to join Shawn Marion and Robert Horry as the only players since 1946-47 to average at least 1.4 threes, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks per game.
Feb 22 - 8:50 PM

Draymond Green scored 11 points with six rebounds, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers against the Spurs on Friday.

While several Western Conference teams made some improvements in the trade market, none of them compare to the improvements made by Draymond. He's a huge difference maker in reality and in fantasy, averaging 10.0 points, 11.0 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.8 blocks, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys in his last five. The Warriors wouldn't have the No. 1 seed in the NBA without Green and his fantasy owners are probably looking good in the standings too.
Feb 21 - 4:28 AM

Draymond Green would be interested in pursuing an offer sheet with the Pistons when he becomes a restricted free agent this offseason.

While Green does enjoy playing for Golden State, he grew up in Michigan, and played for Michigan State during his college years. There will be no shortage of teams looking to give Green a big contract following this year's breakout season, however given the Warriors success this season which can largely be attributed to the fantastic play of Green, it would seem likely the Warriors do whatever they can to retain him.

Draymond Green didn't need to miss any games after an ankle sprain on Monday, playing 36 minutes on Wednesday for three points, 13 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.

He stripped Kevin Martin at the end of the game to help seal the win. Green is earning himself some serious money next season and he's already endeared himself to fantasy owners. He's going to put up big numbers after the break as the Warriors look to secure the No. 1 seed.
Feb 12 - 12:13 AM

Updating a previous report, Draymond Green (ankle) will play vs. the Wolves in Minnesota on Wednesday.

Steve Kerr said Green was probable to play about 20 minutes prior to this confirmation, so hopefully owners snuck him into their starting lineups before the 7pm ET deadline. Green may not play many minutes if the Warriors rout the Wolves, especially since he's not 100 percent and the All-Star break is imminent, but owners should still be thrilled that the Warriors' ironman has yet to miss a game all season.
Feb 11 - 7:00 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said he thinks that Draymond Green (ankle) will play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

Earlier today, Green said the Warriors won't have their All-Star break start until 10:30 tonight, so he definitely wants to play, too. Still, he will have to go through pre-game warmups to make sure everything is OK. We are unlikely to get an update in the next 30 minutes, so his fantasy owners should adjust accordingly. If he's out, David Lee will get more run.
Feb 11 - 6:44 PM

Draymond Green (ankle) participated in the Warriors' morning shootaround, but he is still considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Green said on Tuesday that his ankle was feeling great but it wouldn't be surprising if the Warriors opt to rest him with the All-Star break just around the corner. If Green does take the night off, expect David Lee to be the primary beneficiary while Marreese Speights would also see a bump in minutes.
Feb 11 - 12:10 PM

Draymond Green said that his ankle is feeling great during an interview with KNBR, a radio station in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This is definitely great news for Green, as this confirms that his injury is likely very minor. There's still a chance that the Warriors opt to rest him on Wednesday against the Timberwolves with the All-Star break drawing closer, so we will leave him on the injury report for now. If Green is forced to sit, expect David Lee to be the primary beneficiary with Marreese Speight picking up more minutes as well.
Feb 10 - 8:51 PM

Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said that if there is any question about the health of Draymond Green's right ankle, he will sit against the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Green is looking pretty doubtful for Wednesday's game considering the Warriors simply will not need him to beat the Timberwolves. If Green is out of commission, David Lee would likely step into the starting lineup for a favorable matchup against the Wolves, and he'd make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Marreese Speights would also be in line for extended minutes.
Feb 10 - 6:04 PM

X-rays were negative on Draymond Green's right ankle.

That just means he didn't break anything and Green is likely going to miss Wednesday. In fact, coach Steve Kerr hinted that he might rest the emerging star. Assuming he's out, David Lee would pick up a ton of minutes and he should be owned in all leagues. Expect to see more from Marreese Speights, as well.
