Green left Saturday’s game versus the Houston Rockets during the 3rd quarter after suffering what appeared to be an ankle injury. The Warriors lost to the Rockets 118-112.

Green’s availability for the game came into question after his name was placed on the roster as “questionable” just a day ago. Coach Kerr confirmed with the media late Monday night that Green would in fact be playing, while teammate Jordan Bell would not due to the flu. While Green will be active for the game, it is still not yet clear if there will be any minute restrictions on his play time.

Reports: Draymond Green’s injury may sideline him against the Hornets

According to several reports, Warriors star Draymond Green may not take the court in Charlotte tonight versus the Hornets due to an ankle injury. Green suffered the injury on Saturday night during a loss to the Houston Rockets at home. Reports have been released stating that the injury was nothing more than a regular sprained ankle, but the Warriors will likely take Green’s injury very seriously as he has struggled with injuries this season. Head Coach Steve Kerr also told the media that Draymond participated in a full practice on Sunday. The Warriors will likely be very careful with his his injury as they would rather rest him now and have him be healthy down the stretch as they attempt to hold on to the #1 spot in the west.

Grizzlies’ Jaren Jackson Jr. suffers injury, out indefinitely

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, emerging Grizzlies’ star Jaren Jackson Jr. has suffered a right quad injury, per league sources.

The emerging franchise cornerstone was blossoming into a successful player with the Grizzlies averaging 13.8 points per game, 4.7 rebounds per game and 1.4 blocks per game through 58 games.

With the Grizzlies playoff chances very slim, the organization will likely handle their young star with extreme caution. Currently, Jackson Jr. is listed as “out indefinitely” and the team has not released a statement further regarding the injury.

Reports: Rockets expect Clint Capela to be back in action on Thursday

According to multiple reports, the Houston Rockets fully expect big-man Clint Capela to be ready to play on Thursday.

Capela missed 15 games this season after suffering ligament damage in his right thumb that required surgery. With Capela returning to the active line-up, Kenneth Faried, who has seemingly rejuvenated his career since signing with the Rockets earlier in the season, will likely be moved into a more reserve type of role with the team. This move will also affect veteran big-man Nene as he will likely be pushed out of the line-up.

Before suffering his injury, Capela was averaging 17.6 points per game, 12.6 total rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.8 blocks. Reports have also surfaced saying Capela practiced with the team at USC in preparation for their upcoming match against the Los Angeles Lakers. Capela’s minutes will be decided Thursday night based upon how he did during the live action practice.
