The Golden State Warriors are about as injured as a team can be, but reinforcements are on the way. Three-time All-Star Draymond Green has been upgraded to “probable” for tonight’s home game against the Chicago Bulls.

Green last played on November 19, when the Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies. He’s missed three consecutive games due to heel soreness. All three games have been losses.
On Friday, coach Steve Kerr said he anticipated that Green would be good to go by Monday, but Green sat out a 100-97 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. It’s safe to say he’s itching to get back on the court.
The former Defensive Player of the Year has also missed five games due to a finger injury, bringing his season tally to eight missed games out of 18. That’s been just one of the many ways that the season has gone wrong for Golden State.
On the year, Green is averaging 8.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game.
