Draymond Green to miss Friday’s game

A minor knee injury will keep the forward off the court.

NBA: Finals-Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

On Friday night, the Golden State Warriors will be returning to Seattle, where they will face the Sacramento Kings in their second preseason game of the year. But they won’t be at full strength. Three-time All-Star Draymond Green will not be playing in the game, as he is working his way through a knee injury.

The sore knee, which has been keeping Green out of practice, is considered minor. MRIs have come back negative, and the team will even see if he can practice on Thursday (though even if he can, he won’t be playing on Friday).

It certainly seems like the injury is small, and the team is just being cautious, as they should be. At this point, it would be very surprising if Green isn’t ready to play the Oklahoma City Thunder when the regular season commences in 13 days.

Still, knee injuries are nothing to take lightly, so we’ll keep you updated as more news rolls in.
