The Golden State Warriors will be without forward Draymond Green for four to six weeks due to a sprained left ankle. according to Andscape’s Marc Spears.
Green’s injury occurred during a pickup game at Chase Center earlier this week.
“I dodged a bullet and learned that today, by the way [positively] react”, Green told Spears. “Even with an MRI, you don’t see the trend right away. The swelling has gone down.”
The Warriors open training camp on Tuesday and begin their preseason with five games on October 7 against the Los Angeles Lakers. Their regular season schedule begins October 24th against the Phoenix Suns.
Green, 33, signed a four-year, $100 million contract extension in June after playing 73 games for the Warriors last season. He scored 8.5 points per game, his best performance since 2017-18, in the 2022-23 season. He is expected to be a key part of a Golden State team — which includes Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and now Chris Paul, acquired in July — that is seeking its fifth NBA championship since 2015.
