Breaking News: Draymond Green will play vs. the Hornets

According to the Golden State Warriors, star big-man Draymond Green will play tonight versus the Charlotte Hornets.


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. Green is officially listed as “probable” for tonight’s game versus the Hornets.


Draymond Green and Rudy Gobert engage in new twitter beef

Through the years, Draymond Green has been considered somewhat of an emotional player. He often plays with his heart on the sleeve and is a big reason for the Golden State Warriors’ success over the last few years. In addition to this, Draymond often speaks his mind when he feels like it. For example, towards the beginning of the season, teammates Draymond Green and Kevin Durant exchanged words in a heated argument during a match-up on the road in Los Angeles. So when Draymond saw an interview which featured Rudy Gobert, who the NBA world widely considered an All-Star snub, becoming emotional when asked about how tough it was to find out he hadn’t been selected, he typed out his thoughts on Twitter saying this:

Draymond talked with C.J. McCollum and Jordan Shultz on their podcast about why he responded to Gobert’s interview the way he did. Here’s what he said:

While players beefing online may be very entertaining for NBA fans like us, the best way for two players to settle their issues is on the court. Lucky for them, the two veteran big-men will get a chance to duke things out tonight when the Warriors face the Jazz in Oracle Arena at 10:30 PM on TNT.
