Draymond Green returned to Thursday's game after spraining his left ankle and going to the locker room, and finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
His ankle injury didn't look great and he appeared to be in a lot of pain, but we're guessing he just had it re-taped and was good to go. He played most of the fourth quarter until the end of the game, but the key will be to see if it swells overnight. The Warriors are off until Saturday, when they visit Memphis, so hopefully his ankle will have time to heal between now and then. Dec 8 - 11:38 PM

Draymond Green returned to action in the fourth quarter on Thursday.

The ankle sprain didn't look bad at all and Green likely just had to be re-taped. We'll look for post-game comments on Green for the upcoming back-to-back coming up over the weekend.

Draymond Green turned his left ankle and went to the locker room in the third quarter on Thursday.

Shelvin Mack drove to the basket and Stephen Curry backed into Green. The contact caused Green to roll his ankle on the floor and he was on the court for about 30 seconds. After walking it off for about 20 seconds, Green walked slowly to the locker room under his own power. The injury didn't look bad, but he may be done for the night. This is the same left ankle that cost him time earlier this season.

Draymond Green was terrific at both ends of the court on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-10 shots with three 3-pointers to score 22 points in a 115-98 win vs. the Clippers.

Green added five rebounds, four assists, two steals and just one turnover in 32 minutes of action, rounding out another subtly brilliant fantasy line. The victory moves the Warriors' record to 19-3, one full game ahead of the Spurs and 3.5 games up on the No. 3 seed Clippers.

Draymond Green is not expected to receive further discipline for his kick to James Harden's head from Thursday night.

Green's high-kick flailing has been a problem and the league will continue to watch him on plays like that. It's not going to be easy for him to break his habit because it's just how he plays and the move is second nature to him. He'll be all set for Saturday against the Suns at Oracle Arena.
Dec 2 - 3:26 PM

Draymond Green scored a season-high 20 points against the Rockets on Thursday, adding 15 rebounds, nine assists, one block and two steals in 47 minutes.

He was hit with a flagrant foul in overtime for kicking James Harden in the head, so the league may take a look at it given his history. Although, he may not get an additional punishment and it didn't look as bad as some previous cases. He did say he was confused by the flagrant and non-flagrant foul calls and said he'll go read the rule book, so he may get a fine for that, too. On the season, Green's numbers have held steady with only a dip in scoring and an increase to his defensive stats. He's holding first-round value in standard leagues.

Draymond Green said he has no interest in winning 73 games this year.

"I don't know what the number 73 means," Green said. He said he cares about the home-court advantage, and wants to get better every time the Warriors step on the floor. Green said last year he was worried about getting the 73 wins and called the idea of it last year "dope." The Warriors have won 12 straight and lead the NBA in net rating at 13.0. The Warriors aren't resting players quite as much as anticipated, which could change once they lock up home court.
Dec 1 - 2:31 PM

Draymond Green returned from a one-game absence in Monday's 105-110 win over the Hawks and blocked four shots with four points, seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

Green said that he wants to win the Defensive Player of the Year Award "bad" and he showed it tonight, blocking two shots in the final minute of the game. Green didn't look limited at all Monday and his ankle shouldn't be an issue going forward. He only shot 2-of-9 from the field, but Green's fantasy values comes from his elite ability to rack up assists, steals and blocks. You can see one of his clutch blocks in the link below.

Draymond Green (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

He made it through the pre-game warmups and we haven't heard any reports that he will be limited Monday. Fire him up in all lineups.
Nov 28 - 9:40 PM

Steve Kerr is planning on Draymond Green playing on Monday vs. the Hawks.

Barring a setback during the pre-game warmups, Green will be in the starting lineup vs. the Hawks. We'll have confirmation within the next hour or so, but it's safe to leave Green in active lineups.
Nov 28 - 8:53 PM

Draymond Green (left ankle) is on track to play Monday vs. the Hawks, according to Warriors' Insider Monte Poole.

Pool said after watching Green get in a solid workout during shootaround, and listening to how he talked afterwards, it would be "stunning" if the Warriors opted to hold him out Monday night. "Pushing through [an injury] Game 15 is a little on the extra side," said Green. "But it's not easy. It's boring sitting." Owners can check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off, but it's looking like it's okay to go ahead and throw Green on your active roster. Kevon Looney will return to the bench.
Nov 28 - 2:39 PM

Draymond Green (left ankle) will be a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with the Hawks.

Green was a full participant during shootaround, but acknowledged that his ankle is still feeling a little "tender," and he wants to test it again while going through his pregame routine. Green also said that he's "pretty confident" he'll play tonight, but players also tend to be overly optimistic when discussing their injuries. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Nov 28 - 2:11 PM

Draymond Green (left ankle contusion) will test his ankle during Monday's morning shootaround.

This means we should get a better idea regarding his status in about an hour or two. Coach Steve Kerr said that Kevon Looney will start against the Hawks if Green can't go, but he's not a recommended fantasy target.

Draymond Green (left ankle contusion) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Atlanta.

An MRI came back negative and Steve Kerr said that Green's ankle was "fine" after testing, but Golden State won't rush him back at less than 100 percent. Owners should check back for an update after Monday's shootaround -- if he can't suit up, Kevon Looney should draw another fill-in start.
Nov 27 - 7:54 PM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that Draymond Green's (left ankle contusion) MRI was "fine."

X-rays taken on his ankle were also negative. Green said on Saturday that he was pretty sore and Kerr added that he didn't want to push the forward, but the good news is that he's considered day-to-day. We will hopefully get an update on his status for Monday's game vs. the Hawks later this afternoon, but right now he's currently listed as questionable.
