Draymond Green Has Torn Ligament, Will Miss Several Games

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters today that the injury to Draymond Green‘s left index finger has been diagnosed as a torn ligament, tweets Logan Murdock of NBC Sports. Kerr said Green will be sidelined for “the next few games.”

Green hurt the finger during Friday’s loss to the Spurs and had his hand wrapped after the game. Kerr talked about limiting Green’s minutes for the rest of the season even before the diagnosis, which turned out to be severe enough to keep him out of action for a while.

The news continues a terrible run of injury luck for Golden State, which started the season without Klay Thompson and lost Stephen Curry for at least three months with a broken left hand. Also ailing are Kevon Looney, who is consulting with a specialist for a neuropathic condition, and offseason addition D’Angelo Russell, who sprained his right ankle last night in the midst of a 30-point outing, his best game since joining the Warriors.

Tim Kawakami of The Athletic notes that none of the 15 players who took the court for Golden State in last season’s playoffs will be available for tonight’s game (Twitter link).

    Lol. I’m not laughing at the Warriors, just myself for thinking they could get through this season healthy, as player after player went down from training camp until this point. If they’d trade Draymond, he’d be a cult hero on the Heat. He’s always been one of my all time favorite players, and would be a literal perfect fit for them. Obviously too early for them to do that, and I think a lot of teams would be in on that, and also both GS and Miami are hard capped this year

    Might as well just shoot for that lottery pick and possibly even use it as a trading chip to get back to where they were or at least close to that when Klay is back

  3. I should have known better saying that “dont sleep on them warriors” ish. When the main commentary from pundits on your offseason is “may take a step back but dont sleep om these guys” you can almost rest assured a jynx will arise. I really thought that squad was gonna eek out 54-55 wins, still could i suppose, altho i agree maybe bottoming out makes sense when dangelo returns he’ll hopefully inflate his stats and boost his trade value, you could say the same on looney (not sure what his health issue is) but im not sure looney even with extended minutes and looks is going boost his value to where youd rather trade then keep for greener pastures ahead. Bottom out or not, suppose its time for Steve Kerr to show us what hes about. He did well with less before when he first signed on but this is a whole other level, plus even if the wins arent there interesting to see if hes the kinda guy who can maximize a players value for a solid flip in a trade

  4. It brings me great joy in seeing the Warriors deteriorate so quickly. Wonder where all their bandwagon fans will land next?
