Draymond Green abused the box score during Sunday's Game 1 win, popping off for 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, three 3-pointers, three steals, five blocks and one turnover in 37 minutes.
Incredible. Green became the first player in NBA history to record such a stat line in a playoff game since defensive statistics first started being record during the 1973-74 season, and as the primary defender, he held the Trail Blazers to just 4-of-16 shooting while also forcing three turnovers. Click the link below to check out one of Green's more impressive highlight-reel swats from Sunday's matinee. Apr 16 - 6:58 PM

Draymond Green (rest) will return to the starting lineup for Game 1 against Portland on Sunday.

Green was rested for Golden State's meaningless final regular season game, but he was never going to miss a playoff game. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Zaza Pachulia will join Green in the starting five for Game 1. Andre Iguodala will also be available after resting on Wednesday.

Draymond Green (rest) and Andre Iguodala (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Lakers.

With Green, Iguodala and Matt Barnes (ankle) all set to spend Wednesday night watching from the sidelines, we'll likely see James Michael McAdoo or Kevon Looney (hip) draw the start, and there will be more minutes available for guys like David West and Patrick McCaw. Unfortunately, none of those guys make for very attractive targets in most settings.

The Warriors officially confirmed Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green will not play on Wednesday against the Suns.

This is just a reminder for those who missed it on Tuesday. With Dray and Iggy out, James Michael McAdoo, Kevon Looney, Matt Barnes and Pat McCaw should play more in a favorable matchup.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even with Green and Iguodala out of action, there isn't a ton to like in terms of the Warriors front-court options, in part because there are a lot of ways those minutes could be distributed. David West is likely to see around 20-22 minutes of court time as he ramps up for the playoffs, but without a dependable minutes load he becomes a tough sell outside of deep GPPs. Neither Looney or McAdoo are worth targeting, but Matt Barnes is one of the more intriguing value plays of the day without Iguodala around. He should see in the neighborhood of 23-28 minutes.
Apr 5 - 4:56 PM

Draymond Green finished with just six points, five assists, a rebound, a steal and a blocked shot over 28 minutes in Tuesday's win.

Green misfired on four of his six field goal attempts, including both tries from behind the arc. He has struggled in the second half and his fantasy owners will get absolutely nothing from him Wednesday as he rests. The Warriors have locked up the top spot in the Western Conference so all of their starters are risky propositions for DFS purposes down the stretch.
Apr 5 - 1:49 AM

Draymond Green will play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, but he will rest on Wednesday vs. the Suns.

The Warriors have the No. 1 seed in the West all but locked up, so more DNPs could be coming for their studs. With Green out Wednesday, we could see more of James Michael McAdoo and Matt Barnes, but there are no great fantasy pickups.
Apr 4 - 8:54 PM

Draymond Green posted 11 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists with a steal and a blocked shot in 35 minutes Sunday against Washington.

Green has posted 10 or more assists in 19 games this season, tying a single-season career best. He also had 19 games with double-digit dime totals during the 2015-16 campaign. After some struggles recently at the offensive end his fantasy owners were certainly pleased with Green's filling of the stat sheet in this outing.
Apr 2 - 11:15 PM

Draymond Green scored six points with six rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

If you wanted to build a case for Draymond Green as the Defensive Player of the Year, this would be on your highlight reel. Green was just all over the place and continues to show his versatility on a variety of players. As you might expect, coach Steve Kerr had his piece to say. "I think he's the best defensive player in the league," Kerr said. He's not doing much on the scoring end, but his fantasy owners didn't draft him for that anyway.
Apr 1 - 2:06 AM

Draymond Green sprained his left ankle on Tuesday, but finished the game and says he's good to go going forward.

Dray had 19 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on Tuesday and hit 9-of-15 shots in 33 minutes for one of his better games in recent memory. The Warriors will play again on Wednesday night against the Spurs, and coach Steve Kerr said after the game he has no plans to rest anyone, adding "guys are good to go." Green should still be considered a game-time decision until we get final word on whether he'll play or not, but for now, it sounds like he's a lot closer to probable than doubtful.
Mar 28 - 11:37 PM

Draymond Green tweaked his left ankle during the second half of Tuesday's game vs. the Rockets, but he's available to return.

He was in the locker room for about five minutes and had a noticeable limp at first, but he had his ankle re-taped and looked much better walking back to the bench. We'll have an update after the game, but it looks like his owners dodged a bullet.
Mar 28 - 9:46 PM

Draymond Green scored a season-high 23 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.

It's just his fourth 20-plus scoring game of the season. Green has scored in single digits for each of his last four games, which was somewhat surprising due to how he did have some added usage while Kevin Durant (knee) was out. Green's assists have still been great and the Warriors handed out 37 dimes in this win. The Warriors still only have a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs, so they may not rest too many games until they lock up the No. 1 seed.
Mar 25 - 3:17 AM

Draymond Green hit just 2-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, seven rebounds and eight assists in 28 minutes of Tuesday's 112-87 blowout win over the Mavs.

That makes four straight single-digit scoring nights for Dray, who is averaging just 6.5 points over his last four games. But he's also averaging 9.0 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last five, so it's the 32 percent shooting that is holding him down. Even when he got loose for 20 points and a monster line a week ago, he hit just 4-of-13 shots in doing so. He's still obviously a must-start player and he probably doesn't care how bad his shooting is as long as the Warriors are winning, but it would be nice to see him make some shots against the Kings on Friday.
Mar 21 - 11:52 PM

Draymond Green scored two points with 10 rebounds, six assists and one steal vs. the Thunder on Monday.

He was 0-of-4 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line, but this is basically his floor when his shot isn't falling. Green only played 26 minutes in the blowout win, so the good news is that he should be reasonably fresh for Tuesday's game in Dallas on the second night of a back-to-back set. Just double check his status to make sure he isn't rested.
Mar 20 - 11:57 PM

Draymond Green scored eight points with eight rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

It's his first double-digit assist game this month, which is somewhat surprising because of Kevin Durant (knee) not playing. Green's usage is up this month while he's also seen an increase in blocks and boards, which should have something to do with KD not being around, too. Expect him to have some massive stat lines to finish the season. As a quick aside, his defense has been so good it's almost like he's listening in on the team's plays because it seems like he knows exactly what's coming.
Mar 19 - 1:49 AM

Draymond Green played just 25 minutes and still had nine points, 11 rebounds, six dimes, a steal and a block in Thursday's 122-92 win over the Magic.

This game was basically over after the first quarter when the Dubs opened up a 34-20 lead and then they blew it wide open in the third quarter. Green, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry were all fantastic tonight, and Green is rolling right now, averaging 14.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.5 steals and 3.5 blocks in his two games since returning from a rest day. And if tonight's game had been just a little bit close, he probably would have finished with a triple-double.
