VIDEO: Draymond Green Suffers Knee Injury


Already struggling with frontcourt depth, Draymond Green’s health may be something to keep an eye on as the second-year power forward tweaks his knee on a fast break.

Following the knee tweak, Green would leave the game, heading to the locker room to get himself checked out. He’d later return to the game toward the latter end of the second quarter.

With Andrew Bogut out indefinitely and Andre Iguodala fighting foul trouble, Green’s health will be extremely important to the Golden State Warriors for the remainder of the game and any for the following games. After the first two players mentioned, Draymond is the third best defender on the Warriors and his presence of late has made Harrison Barnes poor play a bit easier to swallow as he’s excelled on both ends of the floor.

Green currently has 5 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists at the break.
