Green is stepping back from the Warriors for at least a few days, saying he wants to give the team space to heal without him before hoping it’s a mutual reconciliation.

• Green was asked if he will be there on opening night against the Lakers when the team gets their championship rings. Green said he expected to play but qualified, again understanding that no matter how much he wants to speed up that process and put this chapter behind him, it’s not his choice.
