Draymond Green’s Golden State Warriors also announced Sunday that Green will be out for another two weeks after the MRI results return.
On 95.7 The Game, the team’s home radio station, Warriors general manager Bob Myers spoke of Green’s injuries on the “Morning Roast” episode:
“You don’t want to speed it up and make it bigger.”
Injury to Draymond Green
Draymond Green injured a calf earlier this month. Celebration Klay ThompsonBack, Green played long enough to be on the starting line-up (seven seconds) before leaving the January 9 game due to a left-back injury. He was tested by experts all last week.
When the team requested a Green MRI, the results showed that his left left calf was tied to a disk behind his back. As a result, she will receive medical attention and continue her care.
Green, 31, a three-time winner of the Golden State Warriors, is clearly a key player on their list. As the Warriors (31-12) stand in second place at the Western Conference, they have a cushion where Green takes the time to make amends.
The team should not have a big problem playing without Green. However, his absence is significant. Golden State is 1-3 in its last four games without Green.
General Manager Bob Myers’ comments were clear. When a person is injured, the best course is to take the time to heal completely.
Green has an unbeatable share of basketball IQ as well as military intelligence that he can still deliver to his team from the bench.
In 34 games this season, Green scored 7.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.4 points per game. Leaving a demand on the wrong is acceptable to his colleagues; in fact, it shows that he is doing his job well. Green is a defensive and intelligent game of space-making, so with his rebounds and support as he is, it shows he is playing the way he needs to.
He is your friend Steph Curry making the shots he does, Green has no reason to force a bad shot out of his hands. It makes sense for them to play football and make Curry decisions. Green stole about 1.4 and blocks 1.0, giving him a chance to win about two games.
Coach Steve Kerr told ESPN the ideas Green had recovered:
“The main thing is to be safe and cautious … It’s a long season. It’s my opinion, that we are very careful. Just see where it goes from there.”
Each NBA team plays 82 games in a regular season, and the Warriors have played 43 games. Being in second place in the middle of the season allows them to take their time and ensure victory.
The important thing right now is to make sure Green is healthy for the postseason.
The Warriors defeated Eastern Conference leaders, the Chicago Bulls, 138-96 Friday without Green. Such a win on such a big team should give Kerr and the Warriors confidence that they can continue their run even without one of their stars. Klay Thompson is back again, so Golden State seems to be doing well.
