This is almost getting funny. Almost.
The Golden State Warriors started Monday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs with only one of their four All-Stars playing. They’ll end it with none playing, as Draymond Green exited the game in the second quarter with a midsection injury, which is being labeled as a contusion (the Warriors have a lot of those!)
Per @KerithBurke, Draymond Green is done for the night with "a midsection issue." Warriors will play the second half with none of their four All-Stars.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) March 20, 2018
Injury update: Draymond Green will be examined at halftime. He will not return to tonight's game.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) March 20, 2018
A midsection contusion, while bizarrely painful sounding, doesn’t seem likely to be an injury that will keep Green sidelined for a long time. And, after tonight, Golden State has three consecutive off days before playing the Atlanta Hawks on Friday. So he has some time to heal up, and very well may not miss any games.
Still, having your star players out with injury is never a good thing, and certainly doesn’t make winning games any easier. Heal up, Dray.
We’ll keep you posted with any injury updates to Green, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, or any other Warriors, since they’re dropping like flies right now.
