Draymond Green (knee) finished with 10 points, seven assists and four rebounds across 29 minutes on Friday at New Orleans.
Green took a shot to the left knee at the end of the third quarter in Tuesday's opener, but he didn't show any ill effects of the ailment against the Pels. In fact, he was his normal, ornery self, getting under the skin of DeMarcus Cousins all evening. The two were jawing most of the game in a contentious affair, and both players were assessed a technical foul during the game. Oct 21 - 1:02 AM

Date:

Draymond Green (knee) and Andre Iguodala (back) will play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

There was some concern in Golden State when Green took a shot to the knee in Tuesday's season opener, but the MRI on Wednesday came back clean and Green was able to practice fully on Thursday. He's ready to rock and should be in all starting fantasy lineups for Friday's showdown with New Orleans' dynamic duo of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.

Draymond Green (knee) has been upgraded from doubtful to probable for Friday's game vs. New Orleans.

Green had an MRI taken Wednesday that came back clean and was able to practice fully on Thursday without any limitations. He's on track to suit up vs. the Pels. Golden State will need his defensive excellence, as the New Orleans tag team of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins is a handful for any opponent. Assuming Green plays his usual allotment of minutes, both Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney will see their playing time cut.

Draymond Green (knee) went through a full practice in New Orleans on Thursday.

There's a video below of him shooting jumpers and apparently he's feeling a lot better. Green is listed as doubtful, but it's worth a mention Green posted this on social media today: "Stories without facts... The way of life nowadays..." Could this be about something else? Of course. Still, we'd consider him closer to questionable than out for Friday.

Draymond Green (knee) is doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Friday.

The good news here is Green's MRI came back clean. Although, he is possibly going to miss multiple games due to this knee strain, but he did travel on the three-game road trip to New Orleans, Memphis and Dallas. If Green can't go, the Warriors are expected to start Jordan Bell, who was surprisingly the first big off the bench on Tuesday. Expect to see more minutes go to Nick Young, Pat McCaw and maybe Andre Iguodala.

An MRI taken on Draymond Green's came back negative according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Breathe, Warriors fans. We're still waiting for additional updates and it's unclear if Draymond plays on Friday vs. New Orleans, but this is really good news. If he's forced to the sidelines, rookie Jordan Bell will likely be called upon the most and clearly has the trust of his head coach.
Oct 19 - 1:46 PM

Draymond Green (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

After suffering a knee strain and not returning on Tuesday, he is having an MRI and coach Steve Kerr said he doesn't think it's serious. Saying the Warriors missed Green in the fourth quarter on Tuesday would be an understatement based on their awful 137.3 defensive rating in those 12 minutes. Hopefully, Green can make it back out there for Friday against the Pelicans. If not, Kevin Durant will play a lot of four while Patrick McCaw, Nick Young and maybe Jordan Bell also help fill in at the forward spots.
Oct 18 - 3:11 PM

Draymond Green (left knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

We should have an official timetable for Green once the MRI results are released, but for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Friday's matchup with New Orleans. If Green is forced to the sidelines, David West or Andre Iguodala (back) could slide into the starting five, and there would be more minutes for rookie Jordan Bell. Stay tuned.
Oct 18 - 12:10 PM

Draymond Green took a shot to his left knee at the end of the third quarter, shot some free throws, and then headed to the locker room with a left knee strain in Tuesday's opener. He will not return to the game.

Green was clearly in pain and struggled to shoot his free throws after being fouled, then quickly headed to the locker room to be checked out. This injury could go in any direction so it's simply too early to predict a timetable. Hopefully the Warriors are just being cautious with him and he'll be ready to go for Game 2, but obviously, his owners will want to keep a close eye on the news feed over the coming days. David West and Jordan Bell will absorb his minutes, but neither player is a hot waiver wire pickup at this point. For the record, Green told ESPN "I'll be good. I'm fine," after the game.
Oct 18 - 1:02 AM

Draymond Green (back strain) will not play against the Kings on Friday.

This almost has to be a precaution for Green. The only other time we even have him on the injury report for a back injury was in the 2015 NBA Finals and he didn't miss that game. He had a record-breaking year for steals and blocks, which is why he's worth a pick at the turn of the second and third rounds of a standard fantasy draft.
Oct 13 - 2:35 PM

Draymond Green scored four points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He had some typical DPOY-type plays and some nice dimes as well. Coach Steve Kerr has talked a lot about his extra depth at center, but the Warriors certainly won't go away from their Mega Death Lineup with Dray at the five, assuming the situation calls for it. Green is firmly in the mix to go in the second round of standard drafts.
Sep 30 - 11:00 PM

Draymond Green won the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year.

Rudy Gobert and Kawhi Leonard are every bit as deserving, but Green was due for one of these after Leonard took home the last two awards -- Green was the runner up the last two seasons. The two-time NBA champion's production slipped with Kevin Durant in Golden State, but he still was a top-25 player in standard leagues with averages of 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists. 1.4 blocks, 1.1 triples and a career-high 2.0 steals per game.
Jun 26 - 10:56 PM

Draymond Green scored 16 points with 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes during a Game 4 loss to the Cavs on Friday.

The refs and/or scorekeeper made a mistake in this game. According to Doris Burke on the sidelines, the refs apparently wanted to give a first half tech to Steve Kerr, but it was recorded as a Draymond tech. In the third quarter, Green picked up another tech, and that first half tech was still credited for Dray at the time of the foul and it looked like Green would be ejected, but the referees made the change of the first tech to give it back to Kerr. Yes, this was a wild game. Green should not be suspended for this.
Jun 10 - 12:11 AM

Draymond Green said the Warriors are more relaxed this year.

"Last year we were chasing 73 wins," Green said. He's been vocal about wanting this rematch against the Cavs and said earlier this year he wants to "annihilate" them. Green is likely going to have to guard LeBron James a lot in this series, but he will be the last line of defense against a red-hot Cleveland offense.
May 26 - 4:34 PM

John Wall, DeMar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, Draymond Green and DeAndre Jordan were named to the All-NBA third team.

Green was the top vote getter, including four first-team votes. Those four first-team votes are actually more than every second-team guy except for Rudy Gobert. Green may not be the flashiest scorer and he does have some guys overshadowing him, but he's easily one of the best defenders in the NBA.
