Draymond Green fouled out in overtime against the Pelicans on Thursday, finishing with 12 points, 17 boards, five assists, three steals, one block and one turnover in 40 minutes.
He was called for his sixth foul on a questionable call and ran straight to the tunnel because he was so incredulous. As what happened before the exit, it was another game, another big stat line. Green was actually in foul trouble early on, but played all but six minutes in the final three quarters and overtime until he fouled out. He's going to be a fantasy stud for a long time and there's almost no way the Warriors won't bring him back. Apr 24 - 1:13 AM

Draymond Green said he isn't upset over not winning the Defensive Player of the Year Award.

The outspoken Green took his second-place finish to Kawhi Leonard in stride and even made a reference back to the 2000 election to explain his thinking. "Al Gore won the popular vote and didn't get elected president so I'm not gonna beat myself up over not winning DPOY," Green said. While Green is saying the right things to reporters, good luck to upcoming opponents who have the misfortune of having to face the Warriors' stopper.

Draymond Green (ankle) did not participate in a six-minute scrimmage on Wednesday.

He's still fully expected to play on Thursday. Green is logging huge minutes in the postseason, averaging 14.5 points, 12.0 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.5 blocks, 3.0 steals and 1.5 treys. He'll likely just have his ankle heal when the Warriors have some time off after the first round.
Apr 22 - 7:51 PM

Draymond Green scored 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in Monday's Game 2 win over the Pelicans.

Green looked hobbled at times and that's something for folks to keep an eye on, and the Warriors will want to waste no time dispatching the Pelicans so he can get some time to rest up. Otherwise, it was a podium-worthy game for the heart and soul of the Warriors.
Apr 21 - 1:33 AM

Draymond Green rolled his ankle during Game 1 on Saturday and was limited during Sunday's practice, but head coach Steve Kerr said it's not a big deal.

The Warriors had a light practice today, and there's nothing suggesting this will cause Draymond to miss any time. He logged 42 minutes on Saturday and filled up the stat sheet, so he'll be a quality daily league target for Game 2 on Monday.
Apr 19 - 5:34 PM

Draymond Green stuffed the stat sheet against the Pelicans on Saturday with 15 points, 12 boards, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

Up until the last five minutes of the game, Green did a great job on Anthony Davis. Green only played 30.3 minutes per game in March and April, so he's clearly set for a major bump in playing time. He had his coming out party in the postseason last year and he could take yet another big step forward this time around.
Apr 18 - 7:11 PM

Draymond Green scored eight points with three rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

His minutes were down to just 20 tonight, which was part of the plan. Green's defensive numbers are awesome this season and he's capable of guarding anyone. Additionally, he's allowed his man to shoot 9.0 percent less from shots within six feet compared to his averages. He'll be a popular Defensive Player of the Year pick.
Apr 16 - 1:30 AM

Draymond Green scored 13 points with 14 boards, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

He said he should win the Defensive Player of the Year award, but Draymond has to be favorite for Most Improved Player, too. Green is shaping up to be a second-round target in fantasy drafts next season. The Warriors are going to have to ante up like MOP for the MIP this summer.
Apr 12 - 2:02 AM

Draymond Green told reporters that he thinks he should win the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award.

In speaking to reporters on Thursday, Green began his campaign for DPOY. "You haven't asked me do I think if I'm the Defensive Player of the Year," Green said. "Yes, I think I'm the Defensive Player of the Year." Awards aside, Green got back on track during Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, but fantasy owners should be wary of rest days as the Warriors have very little incentive to play their starters on Thursday against the Blazers.
Apr 9 - 12:51 PM

Draymond Green got going offensively vs. New Orleans, hitting 10-of-18 shots to finish with 24 points, three 3-pointers, 14 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

Dray struggled in his previous two games, averaging 5.5 points on 22.2 percent shooting, but it was only a matter of time before he broke out of his mini-slump. This is a glorious start to the week for fantasy owners who deployed him despite the risk of a DNP-CD, and tonight's loss may inspire Steve Kerr to keep his starters active vs. the Blazers on Thursday. Check back after Thursday's shootaround for the latest updates.
Apr 7 - 11:00 PM

The Warriors will go with their regular starters for Sunday's game vs. the Spurs, and no players will be rested.

It'll be Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green, and Andrew Bogut in the starting lineup for tonight's matchup with San Antonio, so feel free to get those guys plugged into your active roster. Curry may try to put on a show to counter James Harden's fantastic Sunday performance, as he makes his own case for MVP honors.

Draymond Green returned to action on Saturday with five points, six boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

The Warriors will finish their back-to-back set in San Antonio on Sunday, so there's a very good chance Green rests in that game. Green is worth owning as long as he's starting even with only 24-30 minutes per game.
Apr 5 - 1:28 AM

Draymond Green (shin) will be in the starting lineup vs. the Mavericks on Saturday, but head coach Steve Kerr will monitor his minutes.

Green has missed the past three games due to shin inflammation, so it's not surprising to see the Warriors proceed with caution. Green's owners can activate him in lineups tonight, but his owners should be aware that there is a good chance that he is rested vs. the Spurs on Sunday. David Lee will move to the bench and his value takes a big hit following this news.
Apr 4 - 1:18 PM

Draymond Green (shin) will play against the Mavs on Saturday.

The Warriors are on a back-to-back set this weekend, so Green giving it a go on Saturday likely means he'll be resting on Sunday against the Spurs. Although, Green's shin inflammation is not serious, so there's at least a chance he'll play. David Lee can be dropped in most leagues while Green continues to hold top-20 per-game value.
Apr 3 - 3:59 PM

Draymond Green (shin inflammation) will not play against the Suns on Thursday.

He's going to get at least a week off to rest his minor shin issue. The Warriors have a back-to-back set on the road Saturday and Sunday, so Green is probably going to miss one of those games, too. David Lee will start while James Michael McAdoo and Marreese Speights will also get more run.
