Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Draymond Green is adjusting to a new role with Kevin Durant in town.
"It’s going to be an adjustment for sure," Kerr said. "Draymond may not touch the ball as often because obviously KD will be touching it quite a bit, more than Harrison [Barnes] did. The dynamics change." While Green may not touch the ball as much as he did last year, he'll still have early-round fantasy value due to his ability to fill up the stat sheet in other ways.

Draymond Green (rest) will not play in Saturday's preseason game vs. the Lakers.

He'll join Andre Iguodala and David West on the sidelines while his teammates take on the new-look Lakers.

Draymond Green scored two points in 24 minutes on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists, two steals and three turnovers.

It's going to take Green some time to make the adjust to the new offense. His shooting percentage isn't great in the preseason at just 30.0 percent from the field and he hasn't been as involved in facilitating the offense. There's still no reason to worry about Green because the output in rebounds, steals, blocks and elite assists for a forward.

Draymond Green scored nine points with five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes on Thursday.

After just one assist in Saturday's opener, Green has back-to-back games with five dimes. He is going to have adjust his role with fewer opportunities to touch the ball and could see his 7.4 assists per game from last year take a dip -- Kevin Durant was unassisted on 45.0 percent of his buckets last year. Whatever the case, Draymond's multiple-category output makes him a second-round target.

Draymond Green filled the stat sheet in 21 minutes vs. the Clippers on Tuesday, finishing with eight points, nine rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

After only taking two shots from the field in the preseason opener, Green was a little more aggressive tonight and attempted seven, connecting on three of them. He did have four turnovers which really shouldn't happen with the talent around him, but that was an issue for him last season as well with 3.2 turnovers per game. He's also a career 69.0 percent shooter from the line, but his ability to rack up dimes, treys, rebounds, steals and blocks makes him a top-25 pick in standard leagues.
Oct 5 - 1:15 AM

Draymond Green scored two points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 17 minutes on Saturday.

He was a bit of an afterthought in the offense tonight, only taking two shots from the field and two from the line. Green really saw his touch time jump up last year, but it's likely going to drop a bit with Kevin Durant in the mix. Even if his scoring and dimes do dip, Green should put up enough boards and defense to warrant a pick in the top 25 of a standard draft.
Oct 1 - 9:56 PM

Draymond Green said he doesn't "even want to win 74 games, or 75 games" this regular season.

"It's brutal," Green said. During last season, the All-Star talked a lot about the pressure of the Warriors chasing the record. These comments also coincide with general manager Bob Myers implying the team will rest some guys throughout the season. The Warriors have 17 back-to-back sets, so there's a somewhat high probability we see their superstars rest in several of those. Regardless, Green is still a fine top-25 pick in fantasy leagues.
Sep 26 - 4:40 PM

Draymond Green played under two minutes during Friday's semifinals win vs. Spain, finishing scoreless with zero stats to his credit.

His inactivity was even more striking since DeMarcus Cousins fouled out in the third quarter, but Coach K tightened his rotation and gave the frontcourt minutes to DeAndre Jordan (27 minutes), Carmelo Anthony (25) and Kevin Durant (30). DeMar DeRozan and Harrison Barnes both picked up DNP-CDs, and are questionable to return to the rotation for the gold-medal game on Sunday.

Draymond Green has reached a plea deal after facing assault charges from an incident on July 10.

Green allegedly slapped a MSU football player back on July 10 and was arrested, but this means he will avoid jail time and the charges have been reduced to a noise violation. A noise violation is a civil infraction, meaning he won't have a criminal charge on his record. Green will be suiting up for Team USA this summer and should be in the lineup vs. Argentina on Friday night.

Draymond Green stated during a recent interview that he would, "sacrifice everything for championships."

"I’d sacrifice everything for championships," said Green. "When you win, you don’t really sacrifice anything because everybody gets love when you win. That’s kind of my thing. If you’re a winner, you can’t really be denied too much of anything. I don’t mind sacrificing anything for championships, and that’s what we set out to do, win championships." Green may have to sacrifice the most out of the Dubs' quartet, as Kevin Durant will assuredly need time with the rock in his hands.

Draymond Green said he believes the legal issues stemming from Sunday's arrest will be resolved "really quickly."

"I think when things happen, I think you meet them head-on," Green said. "My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly. As a public figure, I just can't put myself in certain situations. It's something that I'll learn from and just move on." Additionally, the arresting officer confirmed that no injuries were sustained by either party during Sunday's altercation, and that the cops were not called to the scene, but were simply in the area as part of their normal patrol.

The East Lansing Police Department confirmed that Draymond Green was arrested for assault on Sunday.

According to police, the victim was a man and the incident took place in a restaurant. "It was basically an altercation between two guys," police said. "There's no injuries. He was released with a $200 bond on Sunday." The Warriors have issued a statement saying they're aware of the news, but are collecting information and withholding additional comments at this time. An arraignment has been scheduled for July 20, and if convicted, Green would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Draymond Green will play for Team USA during the Olympics.

Several other stars have declined to play for the team including Stephen Curry, but Green doesn't want to miss out on his first chance to represent his country. For now, Green is expected to be joined by players such as Paul George, Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard.

Draymond Green was phenomenal during the Warriors' brutal Game 7 loss on Sunday, pouring in 32 points on 11-of-15 shooting (6-of-8 from deep) with 15 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 47 minutes.

Green made 5-of-5 threes in the first half alone, many of which were wide open, becoming the first player to score 22+ points in the first half of a Finals Game 7 since Walt Frazier in 1970. Green's offense tonight was complemented by chaos-creating defense, a performance that cements him as one of the game's most fearsome two-way players, but it wasn't enough to carry teammates who shot a combined 21-of-68 from the field (30.9 percent). Green's suspension in Game 5 may have been a turning point in the series, but his performance on Sunday cannot be faulted.

Draymond Green scored eight points with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 41 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He said the Warriors would have won in Game 5 with him in the lineup, but it's almost impossible to beat the Cavs when LeBron James is rolling like he is. Green will likely start again on Sunday for Game 7.
